Wanna experiment?

This entry is directed at my current clients and clients-to-be for 2009, but I won’t mind if you listen in. It contains a really good idea you can steal. After all, I stole it. John Michael Cooper, who is 10 pounds of awesome in a five-pound bag, gave a fantastic lecture at the Digital Wedding […]

An ever-changing world

Just in case my blog didn’t have enough typos already, I’ve discovered the WordPress application for iPhone, which I used to give appropriate credit to David Williams in my previous post. I may use this space for fleeting photography-related thoughts that are not quite fleeting enough for Twitter. I’m on my way to two client […]

Alexandra and David: 12.6.08

Michael and Nadia: 10.18.08

View this wedding’s full slideshow! I’ve always appreciated irony, so I love it that probably my most Manhattan wedding of the year, that just dripped that intimate, cosmopolitain feeling, was that of San Franciscans Michael and Nadia. How intimate? The wedding, a stylish affair in the gorgeous SoHo House, had seven guests. With just the […]

Review: 135mm f/2 D DC

Specs and purchasing info. 135mm sometimes seems like the forgotten focal length. Dead-smack in the middle of the 70-200 range, most professional shooters have replaced this lens with more versatile and f/2.8 zooms. But a prime lens still has some advantages — it’s twice as light-sensitive wide-open, and much smaller and lighter to boot. Below, […]

Photo of the Day: Surprise!

I don’t do many kids’ photos professionally … though as more and more of my wedding clients start having children, that may change.
