Spring Bridge detail
It’s been a while since I’ve shot any gloriously old buildings like this. I miss it.
This will probably make a wonderful print. Maybe I should gift one to the owners?
Piano Man, 2011.
These are from a shoot I did years ago with my friend Andre Mangatal. He’s an amazingly talented classically trained tenor.
This is from 2010. I would love to walk through the Scharloo district of Willemstad again and see what has become of these glorious old buildings.
Came across this visitor in my backyard today. Never thought an iguana would let me get this close to him. Wondering if he’s someone’s pet who got scared by fireworks.
Do iguanas hear fireworks?
A good friend of mine from Grenada got me this rum for my birthday. As you can see I’ve managed to put a small dent in it.
Continuing with the lighting experiments. This is a similar two-softbox setup. I used two lengths of black fabric (the softbox cases, actually) to create the darker bottle edges for definition.
I think my light sources need to be more diffused so the highlights aren’t as harsh. And a full bottle probably wouldn’t hurt either…
Jamoon (or Jamun) wine, made in Trinidad. I picked up a bottle at the San Antonio Green Market a couple weeks ago because the taste was very similar to port, which I much prefer to regular wine.
The distinctively-shaped bottle seemed like a good subject to experiment with lighting. This is a three-light setup, two softboxes behind and at an angle to the bottle and a flash with a Rogue grid to highlight the label.
