I’ve been spending time with a CCAC photo class and exploring the city to go and take photos one evening a week. Been a great chance to see some cool new spots and run the tilt/shift lens a lot more. Here’s a couple of my favorites so far - shoot me a note if you’d be interested in a print or could use similar shots for your business!
One of the most popular reasons to use a tilt/shift lens is to change your perspective to match the lines of architecture. Here’s a few recent examples from around Pittsburgh - notice how all the lines that should be straight and parallel… are straight and parallel!

Well, it's been a long while since I've updated here - figured I should put a couple recent works up. Then try to do it again in a couple days. Then maybe again after that. You get the picture. So here's some light-painting, concert-going, long-distance shooting, and portrait-taking goodness from around Pittsburgh this past month.
A while back I decided to try out one of Strobist's photo assignments, and made a picture of my new car, an '03 VW Passat W8. I've been really enjoying driving it and went up to Mount Washington with @jdebner to shoot the car. We used one of my Alienbee B800s connected to a Vagabond II (power source) on a lightstand into a large softbox and Josh ran around the car strobing all over the place. Then I stacked up all the photos in Photoshop and painted in the parts of layers to get highlights to show up on the car. I think it turned our pretty nice for just using one light.
