    I recently finished my second video for the “I Will Reflect” melanoma and skin cancer awareness foundation. The first video intercut several patient testimonials, and was well-received. In fact, even though I shot it over a year ago, it’s still…

  • A few months ago, a company called Mosaic Engineering announced that they were developing an internal filter for the Canon 5D Mark II that would solve the camera’s well-known aliasing problems. This past week, Mosaic has started quietly releasing the filters,…

    I recently had the pleasure of shooting two commercials for the graduate studies program at The Citadel – the military college of South Carolina. I was hired by the good folks at Cognetix, who wrote and produced the spots. This…

    I really enjoy pirate-themed videos. This year, I’ve shot two videos in which pirates have played a prominent role, so I thought it might be fun to compare and contrast the behind-the-scenes workings of these two very different projects. Meetings…

    After spending most of the morning sifting through the Magic Lantern forums, I’ve figured out how to install Magic Lantern on my Canon 5D Mark II (note that it is the II, not the III). As far as I know,…

    I can’t sit on the sidelines when something like RAW video functionality on a DSLR comes out. There are a lot of nice test videos out now, but I needed to shoot my own. So, here it is! My first…

    When I was in middle school, I saved my pennies until I had enough money to buy a Gameboy. I played Tetris until I could close my eyes and see falling blocks. All the game graphics were gray/green monochrome, because…

  • 12/22/13--15:59: Food Photography Tips
  • Food is one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Not only is it an enjoyable challenge, but I usually get to eat it after I’m finished! I’ve done a fair bit of food photography, and refined my system down to…
