A Home Named Overjoy

Overjoy.  This is the name given to this contemporary masterpiece of a home.  I spent three days in this home photographing the interior rooms, exterior, and the details that make this home so unique.  There are so many homes I go into that have incredible features, top-of-the-line appliances, and a prime location but it’s rare … Read more

My Latest Adventure: Luxury Real Estate Photography

Just the other day I got an opportunity to do something new.  Whenever I get a chance to photograph something new, I jump on it.  I am now photographing luxury real estate in Orlando.  This particular house is $5,000,000 and is located in a private golf community in Orlando.  Let me know what you guys think of the photos!  I only got to photograph the interior, but I have a shoot this week where I will be doing both interior and exterior photographs.  I’ll be sure to post photos from that shoot when they are done.

The main technique used for interiors photography is a lot of HDR.  I layered between 3 and 9 exposures per image in this shoot and the lens I used was a Canon 17-40mm f/4L on a Canon 5D mark ii body.  If you have any questions about the photos, tweet me or post on my facebook wall and I’ll reply as soon as I can.

How I Started Photographing Concerts (and how you can, too!)

Whenever I’m out photographing a concert, I have people come up to me and say, “Dude, how did you get to take pictures at this show?  This is like my favorite band!”  The answer is really less complicated than some make it seem.  If you want to take photos at concerts, all it takes is a little bit of effort on your part.  Record labels aren’t going to call you up and ask you to come shoot their shows (although I have had that happen once or twice).

The key to getting in to photograph concerts is having a news outlet for the photos

Learning From Your Photos: The Immediate Key to Better Photography

The other day I was doing product photos when I realized something that I did well.  I learn from every single photograph that I take.  I would take a photo, look at it, and then make changes to improve the shot.  I believe this is a key that every photographer needs to learn.  I’m going to walk you through the photos I took from the first to the last and point out what I did in each photograph to improve from the one before.  Alright, time to go Darwin on my photos!
