It was election night, and I was on assignment at the Baltimore Museum of Industry http://www.thebmi.org/ While waiting for politicians and there supporters to arrive, the storm clouds over Baltimore began to breakup – just in time for the golden hour evening light to shine in. I left the main building and went to the edge of the Inner Harbor off of Key Highway and waited with my Fuji X-E1, in the 16×9 image mode and captured this beautiful image.

About once a month I go to a small gathering of artists, models and photographers at Creative Labs in Baltimore. http://www.createbmore.com/ This is Ana, an awesome model and actress, she is wearing Pakistani traditional clothing. This was a low light situation – shot with my Nikon D800 and 1 Nikon Speedlight with a soft box and a 100mm lens. Post was in Lightroom and Photoshop.
A few weeks ago I was working on a project. A fashion film project, called Lotus. In between shots with video, I also shot stills. It was one of those locations you never have access to – The Catacombs under Lexington Market, Baltimore Maryland http://lexingtonmarket.com/ http://lexingtonmarket.com/event/baltimore-heritage-tour-of-lexington-market-catacombs-100-year-vendors-and-history-at-lexington-market/

Took a day to just drive around with the cameras and go to some spots I’ve never been to and some places I should have shot long ago. It was a beautiful day – sun, warm, big fluffy October clouds, just enough wind. This one image is from Rocky Point Waterfront Park https://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/Agencies/recreation/countyparks/mostpopular/rockypoint/index.html
in Baltimore County. Shot with my Nikon D800 on a tripod.
This is an example of Rembrandt Lighting. Most of Rembrandt’s portraits utilize this style. https://www.wikiart.org/en/rembrandt It is a simple idea, so simple that Rembrandt could make it happen with only the light of nature, the sun, candles and fire. The effect is to create a small triangle of light under one eye on one check that is mostly in shadow. A really nice dramatic effect and draws the eye. Model Taylor is helping create this style by slightly tilting her head. The jewelry she is wearing is by https://hotrodsenchantedcrafts.com/
It’s the end of summer in the northeast United States, so it’s the final chance to photograph sunflowers. I know this is the big thing for selfies, but – that’s not my thing. I also try not to get the image everyone else might try and get. This is one from a field near me in Baltimore County, MD. I waited till the last few seconds of light. Shot with my Fuji X-E1.
