Desert Fox

Mt. Lemmon is definitely one of my favorite places to shoot. It's no coincidence that I keep coming back for the different backdrops provided by the mountain. I felt like this whole shoot with Kali Faith deserved a dedicated blog post. The images are really quite expressive and full of emotion. This combination of beautiful landscapes, hard lighting, and expressive art is something I feel is quite powerful. During this past week for TFW I had many conversations with various artists. One of the topics often discussed was how to share your art. My side mostly hinged on fine art as physical art, and if you are going to share them online, do it properly. Share those images in a way that does justice to the art. Which brings me right here, because I always felt my blog was a special place I could share images. A place I could not only express in writing how I felt about the images, but how they were created on so forth. Ultimately, its my favorite place to display the best work that you can only see here. If you happen to read this, look at these images and let know how they made you feel. Until next time

Canon 6D Review

This is a post I have been really excited about completing. I say this because I've just really taken off with my latest camera. A new camera won't make you a better photographer, but once you've reach the limits of your existing body, it's a nice jump in performance. Since acquiring my Canon 6D I feel like I've really been able to push myself creatively and technically, considering the high performance of full frame sensors. This thing has allowed me to shoot natural light portraits in places that would have been much more difficult to achieve. One aspect you notice right away when switching to full frame, is the optical performance of your good glass. The view finder is much brighter and images really have incredible detail, color, and contrast when paired with quality optics. The dynamic range has to be my favorite feature. It has literally allowed me to shoot on location without flash, and still pull plenty of detail from the shadows. This is really really important for the way I shoot natural light. That in itself is worth it considering the results. A lot has been written about this camera so I won't bore you with spec and charts. It really is a great camera and ill let the images do the talking. Until next time
