Portrait Session - Denise and Doris

I had fun with Denise and Doris at our top-secret outdoor shoot. The on-again, off-again fall weather is making for some great picture opportunities.

Crescent City Art Project

When I was volunteering with Hands On Network in New Orleans I was lucky enough to meet D. Banfield, an extremely talented artist and all-around fun guy.

As Hands On morphed into new and different projects, D. decided to contribute his artist eye in an effort to brighten school environments all over the city. It's the Crescent City Art Project, one of the coolest art project ideas I've ever seen.

You can see a video of the concept here.

Bayne Family Portraits

The Bayne family was nice enough request an outdoors shoot. Although the good light came and went (and came again) we did manage some good pictures. Here are a few outtakes.

The Camera

I don't spend a lot of time messing with my camera equipment. But it's good stuff and I couldn't get by very well with my older SLR. Currently I'm using a Canon 5D Mark II, and if you follow that link you'll see how it fared during extensive testing by the skeptics. I also shoot with L-series lenses.

All those things really mean in layman terms is that your pictures are sharper and clearer. And if you wanted to, you could blow them up to the size of billboad pictures.

And speaking of prints, there's some exciting news coming soon regarding that topic.
