RUUT

Some more concert images this week – sorry I’ve been so busy lately with no chance to post. This is Ruut   https://www.facebook.com/ruutmusic/?epa=SEARCH_BOX    https://www.ruutdemeo.com/music?fbclid=IwAR2yU4FafS0rMc8yHcXcd1eCahQvfm9xvd99NHoHaB8cjGdKeoDnIcUCONQ       a singer/songwriter whose work I have enjoyed for years. The performance was deep in the woods on a cool spring night at the fabulous Thorpwood  http://thorpewood.org/

A wonderful magical small gathering for a solo performance.

Once again playing more with the amazing Nikon Z. I am totally in love with this camera’s ability to create images in low light. This was obviously not a time for any flash or external light source.w_ZDS0596w_ZDS0664w_ZDS0683

MORE WITH THE Z6 AND THE DEAD PENS

Got the chance to photography one of my favorite local bands The Dead Pens https://www.facebook.com/TheDeadPens/?epa=SEARCH_BOX

They almost always perform in low light conditions, so I brought along the Nikon Z6. I love the way this camera performs under these conditions.  I am one of those photographers that uses a different camera for different situations. I started doing this in the film camera days. Different cameras would have different film for certain situations. It wasn’t easy to just change from daylight to tungsten and if you wanted black and white you had to shoot black and white.

Enjoy the pics – and the little jaunt down memory lane.


IN STUDIO WITH FASHION AND AN UMBRELLA

Winter has me working in my studio space more than I enjoy, so things must be made interesting. I had been talking with a model on Instagram (The Jewish Mermaid) and we had decided we’d like to work together but, we had no concept. Then – just before New Years Eve she posted a selfie of her outfit.  That was the look.  We decided on a date and got my favorite H/MUA – Samantha Trionfo .  As luck would have it – I was cleaning out the garage – and found an old umbrella (clear). Bingo.

The day of the shoot – I decided to use 1 constant light source and we began to play.

I hope you enjoy the end result.wALDSC_0900.jpg


VALERIE JUNE

I recently picked up a Nikon Z6, and took it for it’s first concert shoot – Valeria June  http://valeriejune.com/  a really fun show by the way, and a rare solo performance. Great way to shoot with the 24-70mm lens (not a crappy plastic lens either). Anyway – I had the opportunity to use the silent mode. Which comes in handy at an interment concert.

The images are the jpegs straight out of the camera – no filters, no photoshop – just resizing and a watermark.


LAKE STREET DIVE

I have had the pleasure of photographing Lake Street Dive,  https://www.lakestreetdive.com/ twice in 2018, both times in Baltimore, Maryland. The first time during the summer and the second just a few weeks ago. Enjoy the images, both sets were different photographically. One an outdoor venue the other indoor. The band has a wonderful light show that creates some challenges – a lot of very high and low light. As you might know I love a light challenge. The first two images are from the newest show and shot with my Fuji X-E1 and the second two were shot with my Nikon D-800.


VINTAGE

Over the summer, model and fashion designer Stacy Stube and I did a series of images with vintage dresses. Shooting around Baltimore, Maryland. Part of the goal was to have the images be vintage in style. This is one of the black and whites – taken in the Mt. Washington section of town just feet away from the Washington Monument.wSSBWDSC_7411.jpg


CHIKARA MOTH

Heather aka Chikara Moth,  https://modelsociety.com/Model/chikara-moth?fbclid=IwAR1y37CpUzjCqCw3q_TiuyfRxBI2uiseYqIH0SL5T4g4dr2PL2Xv4fYT8no   dropped by the studio a month ago and we played with some fun studio lighting and saran wrap. Heather made a saran wrap dress – with a color collar. I played with 5 point lighting, 3 strobes one around the side and two in front one farther back than the other, daylight and some overhead fluorescent light.
