Third Step: Let’s Light it Up!

Any seasoned designer will tell you that lighting is one of the most important aspects of design.

What Impact Does A Work Related Injury Have On Society?


Cost of working infograph

Take a moment to imagine that you have just had an accident at work, one that will require some time off. No big deal, right? After all, this is pretty straightforward. You return to work when you can, and someone still pays you. Everyone is happy and business moves along as usual. You may be surprised to learn that there is a whole host of events, actions, reactions, and calculated processes that will now happen because of your work related injury.

The economics of work related injuries spans every category. From the lower paycheck you receive on workman’s compensation, to the higher price of goods and services that can eat away at the same paycheck. Work related injuries, and their hidden costs, have no boundaries and their resilience makes them near invincible. Furthermore, trying to notice these costs in real-time is nearly impossible. This is because the costs are “hidden”, or rather they are sort of invisible. It is only later, when piecing costs together, are they ever realized.

So the name of the game is prevention. If you have ever thought that an employer seemed to put an awful lot of time into injury prevention, you wouldn’t be alone. But at least it will not remain a mystery for long. Below is the chain of events, actions and reactions, that once put in motion, affect everyone. And the next time you’re on a job and someone says “Why is all of this necessary?” you can respond like a ivy-league professor of economics.

This information and graphic was provided by who specializes in products and services meant to reduce workplace injuries.

Atop the church at night

Well I was doing a photoshoot in downtown Norfolk, VA the other night and looked around and this idea hit me. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Any thoughts or comments on how I could improve the shot, I’m not 100% satisfied with it for some reason8362693999_c424650c53_z

A session with Merin


Oh, I wish…

I wish it had more depth! I’m ordering prints for this client and this is her favorite – how nice that non-hobbyists / professionals don’t see what we see. I do love the intensity of his mood, but oh, the lack of depth!

It was fairly direct light, and I had a reflector to try to counteract some of the shadows on his face, but I’m just not happy with the lighting. Critique that aspect, please, and anything else you’d like to, of course. Any tips for harsh, direct light in a situation like this would also be appreciated. My vision exceeds my skill (and gear, perhaps) at this point, and it’s frustrating.8120793603_f6a1c74ca0


Focusing Macro

I’m having a terrible time trying to focus my Canon 100mm macro lens … the focus is always off no matter how much depth of field I use … I’m trying to focus on the old man face I see in this crab shell … I’m using live view and enlarging it and it seems to be in focus and when I download it it’s not completely sharp where I want it to be:
