Sport Towel

A client I am working with is currently creating new marketing material for a sport towel. I have taken many photos of this product and want to share two of them here.

The photo to the left is to show how small the towel is when rolled up. The picture below shows the towel in use by a young boy standing on a waterfall feature at a swimming pool.

The hat says it all! ;-)

My little boy isn't going to be a little boy for very much longer. I ended up working on this project with my friend Paul Morton and our model sure was a good sport about it - letting us set up strobes all around him, tripping strobes in his face, changing his clothes, etc. But the deal was incentified with pizza, wings, and video games. A fair bribe I think.

Headspace Carving

A close friend of mine owns Headspace Carving and he can turn any old piece of wood into an incredible piece of artwork. The horse head to the left is one of a pair that sits on either side of the front door of a downtown house. The carving was made using the wood of the tree that previously grew from the stump on which it now sits - this is true of both carvings despite only one being pictured here. Visit his site and support a local artist.

Website is up, job has been quit, time to go

I have spent a little extra time this week working on my (other) site setting up a few galleries. While I recognize the need to continue improving and adding to the site, I am pleased with what I have been able to come up with so far (please have a look: Stevenson Photography)

Despite giving my resignation 8 weeks ago, I still find myself returning daily to the office. This has no doubt been the longest I have had to work post-resignation. So what does the photo to the left have to do with this post or quitting my job? Well, not so much - except I stumbled across it while looking for photos to add to my site and was surprised that I had previously overlooked it.

Enjoy, visit my (other) site, and return soon.

Ebony Carved African Bust

I think I have written at least once or twice in the past about the fact that Liz's parents have done a wonderful job of collecting fantastic artwork during the course of their travels. This is a bust carved of ebony and was an interesting challenge to light because it is black. I had to balance the diffuse reflections and the specular highlights in order to show detail and dimension.

Strobist Info:
Because I took this picture some time ago, I don't remember the power settings but I used 3 flashes in total. One was aimed behind the subject to cast a bit of separation light on the background. One was above subject aimed down and fired through a diffuser (printer paper), and another was camera-right also fired through printer paper.
