Wonderful Machine

I'm very excited about being included in the Wonderful Machine group. They promote assignment photographers around the world. They have a great website It was found by an assignment photographer Bill Cramer, so he understands our needs as photographers. I'm in "Reportage", "Still Life", and "Fine Art" I could be found also under "Washingtion D.C." Their website is very easy to navigate and you could find a photographer to your liking anywhere in the world. They post weekly blogs about photographers they're featuring with sample photos. Check them out!

Celtic Festival

Neat little festival! A lot of things to see. Folk dancing, live music and drinks. This black smith caught my attention. Very charismatic person. Not afraid to share his opinion. I like that. He hand makes knives, swords and tools just like how they did long time ago. These arrow tips are hand forged and shaped with different uses for each heads. The workmanship is excellent!  

Barber Shop

This shop is in Leesburg VA. Neat little shop full of characters and history. I used a 4x5 large format to create this bw portrait. I've been getting back into large format recently. The creative control you have with the tilts-shifts is unsurpassed even in this digital age. This was hand held shot very quickly. Overall I feel more comfortable without tripod. I guess that's one element that defines your style... the condition where you excel or feel comfortable in. But then again, I've heard that you have to get out of your comfort zone. Who knows?
