In the studio: Michael Powell

2 01 2021

Having fun with my studio partner, Michael Powell—shooting with the mirrorless Nikon Z50 and the 16-50mm kit lens (and a fun, inexpensive (less than $20!) paint splatter background I ordered from Amazon). You can see Michael’s gorgeous nature photography on his blog here.

In the studio: Barbara Kelley (installment #1)

16 12 2020

Barbara Kelley, who is the Executive Director of the Hearing Loss Association of America, was the first “model” in my new shared studio space with friends Anna Davalos (Alejo Media) and Michael Powell (Nature Photographer). We relocated to the larger space in August and Barbara was our first official portrait shoot there last month. Of course there was social distancing and we were wearing masks (except for our model during the shoot). It is so nice to have a large space to be able to spread out during a shoot!

It’s always a pleasure to photograph Barbara because she’s very photogenic and up for any pose, background, etc., and because of that megawatt smile, too! We did many wardrobe changes and different backgrounds, so I’ll be sharing this session in a few installments.

Congratulations to my dear friend Michael Powell for getting his photos published in a spread in the local Mt. Vernon Voice newspaper. He was out shooting at Huntley Meadows one cold morning and the co-editor of the publication happened to be there. He asked him if he would like his work to be featured in the newspaper. He had a two page spread available to fill and Michael had to get him photos pronto. Nice showcase for your work, grasshopper!
