On Location Model Shoot Aboard the USS Nokomis

A portrait studio offers great control of lighting and a skilled photographer can create wonderful images, but for a story to go with it, on-location shooting offers greater opportunities and challenges. Together with photographers Jon Bauer, Dave Lund, and Vic Miller, I had the opportunity to learn some techniques for on-location photography using ambient light, reflectors, and off-camera flashes. Of course it helps to have truly elegant models, as we did with Reina Lam and Zarif Sadiqi together with the makeup artist, Erika Zunon.

Chicago and WEFTEC 08

I love Chicago, in October at least. The rest of the year I'm told the weather in Chicago is either too hot and humid or too cold. But October is great. I went there for the annual Water Environment Federation (WEF) conference and give a talk. with 33K attendees there was a lot to see, hear, and do - especially if one decides to get out and walk and use the transit system, which I did.

The Palmer House is grand, especially so after a very expensive ($300M) remodel job. Fellow presenter Saskia V was on the 20th floor, so I got some night shots from there in addition to the grand hall, ballrooms, staircases, etc. I did get out and walked a bit, taking in the "Bean" (aka Cloud Gate), Museum of Art, and the Field Museum of Natural History. Back at the conference, I caught Mayor Daley's keynote speech and heard how a big city can get 'green.' I found an unoccupied walkway and shot a panorama of one of the exhibits. It's really hard to see the layout when you're on the floor. The Op's Challenge was on the floor, so I got a couple of shots of the action. So on with the show...
