See the Light

My job as photographer is to see the light

Without making references to an old song in that title, my job as photographer is to see the light, whether that’s sunlight, moonlight or artificial light.  A long time ago, I learned I prefer to make the light I need in order to create the images I see in my mind.  Most of my photography is of the commercial and advertising persuasion, which suits my preference perfectly.   The mother and daughter above are lighted by the tablet from which mom is reading. This image was created for a book cover.

Robotic Welder for Abicor-Binzel

The robotic welder, above, was created for Abicor-Binzel USA. It required a combination of multiple flash exposures from 6 different strobe heads to freeze the fast moving arm, plus two long time exposures; one to capture the welding itself, and another for the blurred movement of the robotic arm. Another example of our seeing the light needed to tell your clients about your products and services, and then creating the light necessary.
