It makes sense to start this new photo blog with a recent creation by Jonna Faulkner. Shooting Jonna’s jewelry is one of my favorite things to do. Her work is gorgeous. Which makes my job easier.
Created at the end of 2010, this mixed metals piece was photographed in my Escondido studio with a Nikon D300 and 60mm macro lens. A little post-shooting PhotoShop work was done to add a gradation to the background. It was shot using a trapeze-like apparatus of my own design (and Jonna’s construction), and is lit with a combination of 3200K softboxes and reflectors.

I’ll be publishing photos regularly, including jewelry, sculpture and art objects, architecture and trade show photos, along with fine images shot during my 45-year love affair with cameras and images.
If it makes sense, I’ll talk about what went into a shot or why I took it in the first place. I’ll do my best to keep the words secondary to the images, though.
I’d love to hear from you, and see your work as well.
Visit. Enjoy. Post comments. Share work. Then go about your life. Repeat frequently.
