Bark at Art PhotoBooth

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

The Bark at Art poster opening was a great event, and I had a lot of fun manning the PhotoBooth, seeing all the pets, and seeing the different posters. It was a beautiful evening, and this is what the subjects saw as they clicked their pictures (see all the photos from the event by clicking here):

The following is a time-lapse video I made from the pictures:

I have posted the pictures I took of the event here. As an added bonus for The Pet Project, I am donating the proceeds from any print sales.

As a quick aside, I love how much fun the little girl had with the PhotoBooth, and I can imagine that it would be a big hit at children’s birthday parties (give me a call if you are interested: 612-382-2867).

thank-you

Thank you to all of the vendors who contributed to the event, and especially to all the people and pets that came out to the opening. I have also teamed up with the Pet Project for my annual Portraits with Pets event. You can read more about it (and schedule a pet session), by clicking here.

Fine Art Photo at Dusk

I love the color the sky gets shortly after sunset, especially contrasted with the warm glow of tungsten lights. It is an amazing time to take pictures of cities and architecture.

Fine Art Photos: Minnesota’s North Shore

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Every time we travel along Minnesota’s North Shore of Lake Superior, I am reminded of how beautiful it is. This was our first trip in the Spring, and I really enjoyed photographing the rivers full with snow runoff. It was also very cool to see some remnants of ice from this winter.

This week’s Fine Art Photo of the Week is an HDR image of part of the gorge that the Temperance River cuts through the earth on its way to Lake Superior. I was struck by the sunlight hitting the icicle as the water rushed in shadow below. Since cameras cannot capture the range of light that our eyes can see, I knew that I would have to take multiple exposures of the scene and combine it in Photoshop to recapture what I saw (7 stops difference between the sun on the icicle and the shadowy water below).

Those of you who know me well realize I am not much of a morning person. But the crisp air and beautiful sunrise of the first morning certainly woke me up! We stayed in Tofte, MN, so the Temperance River was close by. The first picture shows a great old tree leaning over the river, and the following pictures are along the shore where the river meets Lake Superior.

These last bonus images are of some falls along the Cascade River (top) and of Caribou Falls (middle and bottom). You can’t really see the rainbow that was produced at the bottom of Caribou Falls, so I zoomed in on it for the last picture.

Fine Art Photo: St. Paul, Minnesota

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

This week we attended the official reception for the Wonder Years exhibition at the Science Museum of Minnesota. (I’ve already posted quite a bit about my photos in this exhibit, which you can see here, so I’m not going to say much now.) It was a lot of fun to roam around the museum and really experience some of the learning stations that are apart of the exhibit. Two of my favorites were the baby goggles (which let you see how poorly newborns see) and the video that shows a toddler make scale errors (click here to watch a video about this on YouTube).

This week’s fine art photo of the week is of Lisa looking out at St. Paul from the Science Museum.

Fine Art Photo: High Falls of the Pigeon River

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

We are so lucky to be on a trip along Minnesota’s North Shore this week, which will end with a wedding that we are photographing at the Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, MN. The fall colors are absolutely beautiful, so I know that there are more pictures that will be worthy to post, but for now I hope you enjoy this image of Pigeon Falls from Grand Portage State Park. This is also the my first high-dynamic range (HDR) photograph.
