Do Carnies' Sleep?

Between my internships I had the privilege of staying at Tybee Island for some R&R.  While on the prowl late one night I spyed the back lot of a carnival.  I had to take a shot.  A 15 sec. exposure at f20, ISO 1600 made the flags on top of The Ring of Fire flutter forever.

Rocky Eye Slight Self Portrait

I found a willing four-legged model to allow me to get up in his face per se, eye boogers and all.  Only got a slight shadowy image of myself though.  Shot with a Nikon D700 at 1/125 @ f16 with a 60mm macro lens at ISO 200.

Basting Brush Macro

While on the hunt for things to shoot I spied my basting brush next to the grill.  Interesting boket followed.  I shot this with a Nikon D700 at 1/80 @ f/16 with a 60mm macro lens at ISO 200.

1st Year Layout Mayhem Continued

Ashton Smith proved to be a very patient model for 1st Year Student Katherine Clark.  Sitting in a tub for an hour covered in oil, makeup, and eventually stage-blood was not a problem for her.  Check out Ms. Clark's blog at

Real Use Macro

This week I shot a 1:1 of my Gerber Paraframe II knife.  I left it as is so you can see the blemishes and dust that it carries every time I pull it out of my pocket.  Shot with a Nikon D700 for a 5 second exposure @ f16 with a 60mm macro lens at ISO 200.  I used a Speedlight to provide illumination.

Here's to the Lovers!

It's just Red Day to me, but Happy Valentine's Day to all the sweethearts out there.  Even though I was tired the other night, I had to take advantage of the awesome fog out.  On my way home I stopped and shot this with a Nikon D700 at f4.5 with a 30 second exposure, ISO 200.  My trusty MiniMag and passing cars provided the script!
