He shoots entirely with digital. He does video work too. He doesn't extensively retouch his photos and he doesn't push for style over substance. His work is a good example of how to take a great photo just by using the equipment simply and effectively, exploring the subject you are photographing and responding to what you see in front of you.

Here the camera was at ISO 800, F4.0 and 1/5 shutter speed. I did a little bit of post production on this one using LightRoom
For this one I placed the camera on a tripod and exposed for 3sec at ISO 100 and f4.5

I did some experiments in low light conditions for two concerts at Blue Note using the 18-105 zoom lens for Madeleine Peyroux's concert (I was a little bit far from the stage) and a combination of 18-105 and a prime 35mm at the Chick Corea concert, this time I was extremely close so the 35mm didn't work very well. I also did a few experiments with bulb mode at the brooklin bridge. Please don't take the concerts by my pictures. Both were great!

Using F8 gives me a good depth of field so the flag pole in the foreground is in focus and I also get some focus on the buildings in the background. I took 3 shots and this one came out the sharpest with the least camera shake. (The beauty of digital means I can check straight away to see if it's in focus!).
Because I was using a mid way closed down aperture of F8 and I kept my ISO low at 200, then the slow shutter speed was required. This was a deliberate choice as it allowed me to see a bit of movement in the flag which was blowing in the wind.
This is an example of when my choices allowed me to control the exposure to get the exact effect I wanted (large depth of field for the buildings and a slow shutter speed for some movement from the flag). The camera's auto setting would have read the fact that it was a dark night scene and would probably have chosen a wide open aperture to keep the shutter speed as high as possible (in order to avoid any camera shake). In this case I chose to do the opposite of what the camera's auto setting would have suggested.

From a November trip to a market in Peru. My wife's aunt took us shopping, and when we got home she gave us a cooking lesson. I built a website for her and now she gives cooking lessons to tourists for a nominal fee. Visit www.CookingClassInPeru.com if you are interested.
We started this blog to share our work with each other during the course of the class as well as after we graduate. Thanks for visiting - we welcome your comments.
