pigtails at sunset

I know, another sunset... but I really liked how Erika's pigtails showed up in silhouette.

Dad's desk...

(tiny tributes to my late father can be found in this scene)

I really like this snap ~

The concentration of the director, Ryan Gould, and the actor, Michael Cullen, seem to translate ~ despite the blur. It's not the best picture, but for me it captures moment as I remember it.

Mexican squash blossoms

I think the goal for me is not in taking an extraordinary picture as much as it is about capturing the ordinary in an interesting way.

This is the take of the scene being blocked in the post Dad's Desk.

This summer I had the privilege to assist the art director (Kat Sweeney) working on an independent short film being shot in Rochester.

The experience was a dream come true for me, and I really loved every second of it - I was completely absorbed with watching every aspect of the different cogs that come together on the set every day.

I always knew there was a lot going on outside the frame when you watch a movie, but it really amazes me at how much can be going on. At times there were up to 6 people plus the actor in this tiny room.

The people I worked with for those 6 days were truly a wonderful bunch of very talented, kind people; which brought me to the conclusion that I really miss the dynamics of collaboration.

At some point I'd like to add a gallery of pictures I took while on set.
