Hee's an over-the-top corporate portrait I recently took. I toned it down for normal usage, but this is my favorite treatment of it.

Thanks Pico,
I used two flash heads triggered by wireless. The key light was a vivitar 283 and the second flash (aimed at the picture) was a canon 430 ex. The 430 was snooted to illuminate just the picture and the vivitar had a cardboard gobo on it to keep its light off of the background wall. I lucked out with the cone shaped light pattern on the background wall, that was from an existing flourescent light fixture!

More on Lake Tahoe.


Animal Ark north of Reno, NV. This cheetah was as close as it looks and running 50+ MPH to catch a lure on the string. (edit) it was going 50+ before it passed the lure and turned around. This picture is towards the end of the turn-around as it's about to pounce. I have more of these pictures on my website (the image URL will show you the way if you want to see them).


I had the cheap camera set to take repeated pictures. Out of 50 pictures, this, the previous picture, and about 5 others came out good.


Sky over Diamond Peak ski area taken from my back deck.

Great stuff! I like how the climbers body is entirely rim lit. How was that done?

ok i have a cannon dslr xt rebel. i got like 3 lenses for it and am curious how do i take photos like the ones above where it shows like a long exposure but no blur of the objects walking or such. If it was photoshopped nm but i know you can take long exposure shots just not sure how you go about a longer shot than what the camera permits. Ie 6 sec.

The moonlight/snow shot was only a 30 second exposure (pre-remote shutter release days), and I just had both people stand as still as possible. So, there's no PSing, just subject manipulation.

I'm using the same camera as you too.

Also, you mention 6 seconds as a limit on shutter speed, but you should be able to do 30 sec without switching to bulb, and I think up to 2.5 hours on the bulb setting. I've only done up to just over on hour, though, so I can't confirm that.

LOL ...never took anything you said as an insult! Funny thing is, I've never used Photoshop myself. I find that Corel Paintshop Pro XI does all that I need, and for a fraction of the price.

As far as tutorials go, I just bought a couple of books.

As a noob, which I still think I am, this book taught me so much: http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Exposure-Photographs-Digital-Updated/dp/0817463003/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1196967795&sr=8-1

And for long-exposure stuff, google it. There's a lot of information out there. I'm kind of a Cokin filter freak too, and seem to use graduated NDs a lot.

Hey, thanks for posting...it's people like you that make me realize my photography sucks.

(putting camera in closet never to be used again)...thanks from the bottom of my empty heart. time to find a new hobby, maybe shuffle board or crocheting.

Just a couple of shots from the holiday period..

Just playing around with Mt Cook (highest peak in NZ) as my background... Not a bad effort for a side of the road quicky



A bit of a change from the norm, first time using the new camera at the drags...not as sharpe as I would have liked but they came out alright. My ISO was perhaps a little high as well Frown and shutter speed was a little slow for some of the other shots.







Another from the Waterfall shoot the other day.. one of my fav's
