Been interesting around here...

Well, the last few days have been intersting. You would think that a guy (or gal) could go out on a photo-walk, and not have that many major incidents.  I get home the other night, and end up having to run in with my wife.  This is what happened...

Now let us talk about baby photography.  Shallow depth of field seems to be the norm in the industry that is baby photography.  The dreamy soft edges and the loving gaze of mom and dad are what we are going for.  Shoot for the eyes, and make them sparkle!  The depth of field is great, but if you can not nail the eyes you have lost the shot. 

This is where I love the focus lock, and then recompose the shot.  Focus on the eyes, hold the focal point, then readjust and put the subject just off center.  This will make the shots pop!  

Oh, and welcome to the world Mackenna!

The Kauffman Center for Performing Arts

It has been awhile since I have been on here, and things have been busy.  I just placed some art in the El Patron Restaurant located at 29th and Southwest Blvd in Kansas City, Mo.  Stop by on your way downtown for great food and margaritas.  I also have placed a 20x30 print of the Liberty Memorial downtown at the 2010 Gallery Kc (2010 Main Street) for First Fridays.

Over the last few months, the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts has received some substantial publication coverage.  The building is a noticeable change to the skyline of downtown Kansas City.  The newest addition to the downtown area, shows the lines much akin to the Sydney Opera House.

I have been waiting, in between catering to my pregnant wife, for some night outings downtown to see what it looks like lit up.

As soon as I can make it down there, I will be sure to post more shots. 

In the meantime... be sure to stop by my website at and see what prints you would like to order.
