The blog is back up! I’m just adding a few recent shots and some information about them. I’ll be adding more information soon. Thanks for your attention.

This shot is for Chusid Associates. It reminded me how difficult it is to work with dry ice. Some version of this shot will be a magazine cover. You can visit the client’s blog for more information on this entertaining shoot. Please visit the clients site at and, particularly if you work with building materials.
Moving the Earth

This shot is for Terry Beeler and Son Contractors Inc. you can see their site at I hope you will take a look at the site because there are thousands of my photographs there. This shot was taken with a wide-angle lens and a strobe to create a little more drama.

Finally this is a shot of an egg on a white piece of paper. Just goes to prove how much you can do with light. This shot was part of an article on lighting with projectors. The article was in Photo Techniques Magazine.  I have an article in the current issue of Photo Technique magazine. I hope you’ll check it out at a local bookstore. You can see more of my articles here.

Please consider taking one of my classes, or even recommending them. I have three classes at BetterPhoto:
An Introduction to Photographic Lighting
Portrait Lighting on Location and in the Studio
Getting Started in Commercial Photography

I saw the first copy of my book last week. What a thrill! It really looks great. I hope you’ll pre-order the book: Understanding and Controlling Strobe Lighting: A Guide for Digital Photographers
