Scott & Mike Have A New Home…

That’s right, for those of you who used to listen to the Digital Photography Show with Scott Sherman and Michael Stein the good news is they are back…and they are bigger and better than before with a new home and a new name.  Check out Digital Photography LIfeScott Kelby was one of their first guests with a very informative and entertaining interview.  I enjoyed being on their show in the past and look forward to chatting with them again in the near future.

Speaking of Scott Kelby, he just posted his Third Annual Gonzo Gift Guide over at Layers Magazine.  If you are looking for that something special for the photographer in your life or…if you photographers want to leave a subtle hint for gift ideas lying around simply print it out, highlight the cool items that you really, really need (want) and leave it lying around in an obvious place.  I’ve already marked a few things that I hope to find under the tree this year.

DLWS Bozeman Day 3 PM

We always like to end DLWS with a grand finale of a shoot and boy did we produce with this one!  Moose’s son Jake found our last shooting location at an antique car junk yard.  He even found a couple of great models for the students to photograph, working on improving  their flash skills that Joe has been teaching this week.  Moose & Kevin worked another model with the group and I worked with students who were photographing the classic cars themselves.

I honestly can’t remember being this tired after the week with long, yet, very satisfying days.  The students and my DLWS family insprie me and keep me going and I think my images from the last night sum up my week.

Anything is possible when you reach for the skies and let your dreams take flight.

The front of this Chevy makes me smile…don’t forget to KEEP SMILING!

DLWS Bozeman Day 3 AM

It’s always fun to get the opportunity to revisit a location and find new subjects.  That’s just what we did.  We headed back to last night’s location.  Working with students at the boxcars I challenged myself to come up with three very different images of the same subject…

Using a variety of focal lengths, angles and creative Photoshop techniques to finish the images gave me three distinctively different images of the same subject.  It was fun working it  and coming up with the results I did.

DLWS Bozeman Day 2 PM

We took the group to an amazing location this evening where the big decision was whether to start with the train yard or the ghost town.  Since I spent time in the train yard last visit I decided to work the ghost town this time…
