Water Halos

A different take on the water balloon idea. The angle of impact is from the back to give a "water halo" to the subject. As you can see the water was a little cold! You should give it a try with family or friends. I'm on the look out for my next victim, I mean subject.

Summer Time Fun

I do not often shoot 1/8000 of a second, but it is fun when I do! All of these shots are 1/8000 of a second, f/2.8 and ISO 800. Some edits where done too, but not much. My camera is "older" and I can see pixels, red, green, blue in the pictures. I took them out and did some levels adjustment.
I must say I have great neighbors, they will send there kids over for some water balloon smashing fun. The idea came from a video clip I was shown about a photographer who does "Water Wigs". He uses strobes, fashion models and a costly triggering system. Awesome stuff, I 'll bet you can google "Water Wigs" to find his work. I did my own low tech copy. Thanks to my kids and the neighbors for the great pics. I am willing to do it again if you are! Enjoy the summer time.

Antelope Island Activity 2013


We took a small group of photographers out to Antelope Island this last weekend. We did a few different things including some sunsets and long exposures. I hope everyone had a good time. I know I saw some good shots from the group. Special thanks to Larry for being our model and a good sport!
