A little wink and a smile is all that was needed ;-) Don't hide inside the view finder. Get out of it and have fun, too! Created with Canon, BLACKRAPID, Lowepro

I barely made it out alive after composing this shot on a Mountain in Sterling Forest, NY. Thankfully I am able to share this with the world, now. Shane Laden was there, he knows the story LOL! Created with Canon and Adobe Photoshop
One of my favorite compositions! At Steampunk November, Shot with Canon in all natural light on an overcast day.
This is what we called "The Field and Stream" shot. I composed this in the mountains of Pennsylvania along a fresh water stream that flowed straight out of a lake which sat right on top of the mountain. Water doesn't get any more naturally fresh than this. Carhartt Clothing. Created with Canon, Manfrotto, and Westcott, and I wouldn't trust anyone else to keep my gear safe in these outdoor conditions other that BLACKRAPID and Lowepro!

An example of how technical I am in my work. This shot of Robin Hood took me quite a few images in order to get just the perfect shot, and that is of his eye. I wanted his eye to barely be visible from under the hood to lend to the whole stealth / rogue feel of the character. I didn't want the whole eye, and I didn't want no eye . . . just a smiggin, and we nailed it. Shot in all natural light with Canon 5D MkIII and on board speedlight for fill.
Here's another image from the Commercial Photo Shoot. Similar lighting but completely different tone and feel. Created with Canon, Manfrotto, Westcott

Wyatt Earp Portrait
It is possible to reach a point in one’s career where we can see a great photograph before even placing the subject in the zone. We shot this 1, yes, “ONE Shot Portrait” on a whim in like 10 seconds simply walking by and seeing a great opportunity. All natural morning light pouring in through a large window; no artificial lighting or bounce. Some slight touch-up in Adobe Photoshop. Shot with Canon. That's it! Amazing!

Working with natural light again and only one flash. Shot with Canon and a mounted flash bounced into the wall for fill.

Western Legend Portrait
Old Western Portrait, shot in all natural light on a heavily clouded day. I had to think about getting the perfect bounce of light off of a building to get the composition just right. I think it turned out great! Shot with the Canon 5D Mark III and Canon's EF 70-200mm at 145mm, f/3.5, 1/200 sec, ISO 640, Edited in Adobe Photoshop.
