I was out on Friday night to photography a band, which I did (images were taken at Fish Head Cantina, Maryland. http://www.fishheadcantina.com/ In the process I discovered the opening act The Dead Pens https://thedeadpens.com/?fbclid=IwAR2CEVatmzWUHNlJtZB-O0vYGx1Wp-SmjntoJ7e8_MOUISXx9HDKYuJL9zE
This is an image from that show – lead singer/songwriter guitarist and keyboard player Danah Koch. I’ve added the band website – I hope you’ll check them out.
Shot with my Nikon D800, I had to deal with some low light issues. My main plan while shooting concerts like this is to use shutter priority to freeze action and then use the auto ISO function to help with the low light.
This is a CD cover I had the pleasure of doing some technical support for. My part was creating extra pixels to the original image. (The images are not mine but, those of Chanté C. Ramsey of VySyn Photography http://vysynphotos.com/ . This is the newest release from singer/songwriter Lili Roquelin http://www.liliroquelin.com/ – based in New York. I have had the pleasure of working with her many times in the past. Please give her music a listen – I’m sure you will enjoy her wonderful music and poetic lyrics. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JB629G1/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1539365414&sr=8-6&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=lili+roquelin&dpPl=1&dpID=410PBTiqTUL&ref=plSrch
Shot this over the summer, it was one of those group meet up shoots. Nicole was dressed in this lovely black dress and hat. We were in a small park in Anne Arundle County, Maryland. Dusk was approaching and so too was the golden hour. I used my Nikon with a 35mm lens and 1 speedlight for fill. I was really ve
ry happy with the results.

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/

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/
