Had the privilege to photograph this high school senior on a beautiful winter day in Staten Island, NY. When we arrived at their house I quickly noticed this tower silo in the background that resembled a castle tower. I knew right away that I wanted to incorporate this in my photos along with the dramatic Skies and the sun peaking out. So here is what we captured.
You hire a professional photographer for your wedding, daughter's sweet 16 or family reunion but pass on purchasing an album or prints. So how do you plan to remember those days in say 20 or 40 years? You may say, I store them on a DVD, USB Drive or you have them up on the web in a service like drop box or Microsoft's One Drive. Problem is, with most technology there are possible crashes that can wipe a hard drives clean, you can lose a small USB drive or DVD disc and you will never see those photos again.
If you are that type of person that will say just give me a DVD or a USB drive don't feel bad because you are not alone. According to a survey conducted by Professional Photographers of America (PPA) 67% of respondents store their images digitally on their computers, phones or in the cloud.

Using our favorite dancer my niece, this time we shot her doing her terrific dance moves with powder. I just love how these photos came out especially for our first time doing it.
Camera Gear Used
The back flashes were in manual mode and set at half power. The main light also in manual mode set to full power. When shooting I had the shutter speed very high at about 2500 to kill as much ambient light and to freeze motion. ISO at 100 and at F2.8 and away we go. Here are some of the photos we took - what are your thoughts?
I usually drive my kids crazy when I want to practice certain lighting setups or poses. This time I was asked by my beautiful niece to take some action dance photos for her dance class - Perfect! I have a willing subject but her availability will be on Sunday Afternoon when my beloved Dolphins are taking on the NY JETS. In all honesty I was more than happy to spend the afternoon photographing our little dancer. We had fun and got some really nice shots and when I got home I got to see Miami make a huge come back and defeat the Jets - its a win win day.
Here are some images that we captured Sunday.
Camera: Canon 5D MK III -
Camera Settings: F2.8 1/200 sec ISO 100
Camera Settings: F2.8 1/400 sec ISO 100
We went out and photographed a few swimming pools for a company in NY that will be used for their websites, marketing material, award entries and archiving.
