I thoroughly enjoyed covering the Solstice Singers concert this past Sunday at the Christ Lutheran Church in Falmouth. It’s always an aural and visual pleasure attending the choral group’s performances. Thanks to the amazing low-light capabilities of my Canon 5D Mark II camera, and also knowing I could reduce “noise” in my digital darkroom, I was able to shoot to my heart’s content in the dark interior of the church.  No worries about distracting the audience with flash.

If any of my students or other photographers are wondering, all images except the first four were shot at ISO 12,500 (not a typo!) with around an f/4 aperture and 1/50 second shutter – always a balancing act between controlling noise, depth of field, and subject motion when lighting is dim. Here are a few of my favorites.

The Falmouth Art Center’s Fall Juried Show opened last Friday. Both of my photographs, along with 10 others, were selected to be part of this competitive show of 88 works of art. And I’m delighted that “Wave Catcher” was awarded “Best Photograph!”

“Wave Catcher” is one of many images selected by the little girl’s mother from her extended family’s portrait session held at Old Silver Beach in Falmouth, Cape Cod last summer. She especially adored this one since it so aptly reflected the free and adventurous spirit of her beautiful daughter.

During the visit to the center, I also discovered that “Afternoon Fog” – my other entry – is one of a handful of pieces selected by the Falmouth Garden Club. A club member will create a floral interpretation to be unveiled at the “Petals and Palettes” awards reception held Sunday, October 9 from 2 to 4 PM at the Falmouth Art Center . I hope that many of my friends and fans will be able to attend.

Romping on the beach with 4-year-old triplet boys at a North Falmouth beach was a fun challenge earlier this week. What delightful cutie pies. Not surprisingly, the boys had little interest in sitting or standing poses. But their personalities came alive whenever they were asked to hug or jump or run… especially into Mom and Dad’s arms. Thanks Krista and John for asking me to capture memories of your family’s fun times on Cape Cod!

A favorite portrait “pose” is the beach jump… for kids of all ages!  We all had fun this morning at a large family reunion portrait session at Nobska Beach in Woods Hole. I captured close to 20 wonderful poses, with many variation of each to choose from – from the whole family of 29 to smaller family groups. I couldn’t wait to share this jumping series as Debbie, Mike and their family had a ball!  Which jump do you like best?

I am thrilled to receive notification that my “Fingers and Toes” newborn baby photograph is one of a handful of works accepted into the new Maternity Ward Art Gallery’s first exhibit at the Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis. It will soon be on display in this highly competitive show through April 2012.  And I’m honored to be one of the photographers asked to submit their piece into Cape Cod Healthcare’s Permanent “Gifts of Art” Collection as well!

Fingers and Toes newborn baby photograph

It’s terribly rewarding to be able to create portrait art of newborn babies that will be enjoyed by many families during this very special time of their lives. Thanks Amy and David for the opportunity to capture this image along with other memorable pictures for you at your home session last year in Falmouth.

I’m happy to announce that my Intermediate Photography class is scheduled to start on Saturday, April 2 at 9 am at the Cape Cod Conservatory, Falmouth campus. The class is limited to 12 students.

This course is designed for students who have a basic understanding of how to use aperture and shutter modes, and are ready to get to the next level – artistically and technically.  Seeing creatively, composing artistically, and taking control of light – the paintbrush of photography – will be the core focus. We’ll cover a variety of genres, including landscape photography and portraiture. Two of the classes will be actual photo shoots.

Information on the Basic and Intermediate training classes, scheduling, and registration is here.

I recently shared with a friend that unlike dogs, studio portraits of cats are next to impossible.  It’s much better to sensitively shoot photographs in the comfort of their own home.  Then yesterday, as I was shooting product shots in my studio, my kitty had the last say. Mindy jumped up on my posing table and let me capture some classic  “poses” during 15 lucky seconds!  LOL!!!  (Please don’t let her know that the embarassing picture at top right is on the Internet…)
