We've Moved....

Check out my new Tampa Bay Daily Photo site

...back to our house near Tampa. I will still be working in Miami Beach a few days each month so I will still be taking some new photos, but will mainly focus on my Tampa Bay Daily Photo blog.

So please head on over and check it out.

Playing Catch-up

I have been trying to finish processing roughly 8GB of photos this weekend so I haven't had much time to shoot. I was waiting for some files to transfer, and took a few pics of things on my desk with the IR camera. A couple snapshots turned into grabbing my desk lamp, a flash and a diffuser (white paper).

Photos: Infrared Nikon D50, kit lens, SB-600 manually fired with button, paper diffuser and a halogen desk lamp.

Sweet looking blue table

So to stay on the cool blue light theme and some cool living area lighting ideas from Professor Taylor, here's a photo from a recent furniture shoot. The company rents out all sort of neat furniture for parties and events in South Florida.

The Other City That Never Sleeps

I have been hooked on the color blue lately so I'm running with it.

Happy Thanksgiving friends!

The Prisoner

I liked this infrared photo because it looked like glamour lighting from the 1940s.

Cool Morning

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Things have been crazy crazy around here. I'm just now getting to edit the images from 2 weeks ago, and I haven't gotten to the Nikon party images yet.

This week will be beach photos and maybe a few more from the Miami skyline and Jungle Island.

Photo info: D200, Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens, and an ND gradient filter over the lens (which caused the vignetting in the image).

Flamingo Lake

Infrared photo at Jungle Island. Tonight we are going to a party sponsored by Nikon at the Opium Garden club to check out the D3, D300, and all of their new gear for 2008. Should be a lot of fun. There's also an open bar the whole night...

Sausage Tree Palm Shadow

Infrared photo of a Sausage Tree at Jungle Island. Its hard fruit can weigh up to 15lbs. The encyclopedia says to carefully select the planting site for this tree... duh.

Infrared Downtown

Here's another infrared city shot. This one is pretty much straight out of the camera. I was shooting JPEG instead of RAW files today.

We went to Jungle Island today, and the weather was so nice (sunny and mid 70s all day long.) I brought the IR camera and took a lot of pictures. I'll post a complete gallery on Picasa when I finish processing the photos from yesterday's shoot. I spent 9 hours shooting furniture in a warehouse when I really wanted to be outside in this fantastic weather.

The Lighthouse

The lighthouse at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. This was a fun little outing. After climbing up nearly 90 feet of stairs I started to feel the spiral stairway swaying back and forth -- all of this right after the ranger was telling us how the builder made the walls a lot thinner than the designer specified. You can read more about the park at their official website.
