Blue Memory

This photo of the talented performer, Memory, working her LED hoop was recently featured on the from page of hooping.org.

I used a tripod mounted camera and a 1 or 2 second exposure to capture the light trails from the hoop. This also allowed the hoop glow to color the shadows. Rear-curtain sync brought the three speed lights (top, left and and right) in to freeze the action and give me a sharp Memory in the middle of the light.

Way Off the Norrnal Topic - Follow My Musings About Whisk(e)y

One of the other passions of my life is whisk(e)y. I love scotch whisky and bourbon whiskey and irish whiskey, and ....

Anyway, I've started a blog about my favorite spirit, and what's good, great and mediocre over at The Weekly Dram.

And yes, I'm doing my own photography for the posts, as opposed to grabbing shots from official sites. Once I've got it down, I'll be posting about my lessons learned from shooting pics of all these bottles...

Come and See the Show

I know it's only March, but I'm stoked about this and want to get on people's calendars now.

I'll be the featured artist at Cirque De Vol Studios for the month of May. I'll be covering their walls with cosplayers, circus arts performers, landscapes and scenes from nature and more.

Friday, May 3rd from 7-9 pm, is the artist's reception. I'd love to see you all there.

(P.S. - It's First Friday in Raleigh, the monthly arts celebration in downtown, so you should just plan to make a night of it) :-)
