Playing With Water...

It's fun being a photographer in Dallas. There is a lot to shoot here - events, landscapes, architecture, celebrities, politics, portraits, spot news, fine art, and the list goes on and on... However, sometimes you just want to stay in the studio and play around with the camera. That's how I felt the other night. I decided to practice some shooting with a very unpredictable subject... water!

Technically, I didn't stay "in" the studio for this shot. I actually set up right outside, since it was going to be a very wet and messy shoot. I like shooting water as it splashes and flies across the image. It can make for some very dynamic photos. Now, if only Canada Dry or another soft drink brand would hire me. I love shooting for all the newspapers and magazines that regularly call me, but it would be nice to add a major soft drink manufacturer to my resume!

A Macro Strawberry...

Have you ever looked at a strawberry? I mean really looked at one up close? Sometimes everyday objects can be a lot of fun to shoot. Pull out your macro lenses and extension tubes and start playing around with household items. You'll be surprised at how much fun you'll have!
