Some of you have inquired as to whether I’m alright since it has been a while since I posted a photo. To dispel any rumors, I thought I would take the opportunity to post a Band Photo from my recent work with the Sam Pace Band and also to provide an update on my website maintenance project.
I was invited by my good friend Sam Pace to photograph a recording session for their soon to be released new album. I captured this photograph during one of their breaks. The photo was chosen by Sam for an upcoming campaign. I always enjoy working with Sam and the band because their photography style is very compatible with the way I like to process musician photos.
Website Update: I have been doing a lot of work on the website. It’s mostly boring plumbing-type-of-stuff but it is time-consuming and not as much fun as posting photographs. But, it was sorely needed. I have also been busy making changes to the galleries and most importantly trying to figure out a way to speed up the site. I chose a low-cost hosting program and the delays are getting ridiculous. So, I upgraded the hosting program and I’m told there should be a dramatic increase in performance. It should be migrated over to the new servers in a few days. In the meantime, you can see how the new galleries look by clicking here to see the new Seascapes Gallery. It’s going to be slow so be patient. :) You will probably also see some other subtle changes as you work. your way through the site (e.g. About page). Your comments and feedback is welcome.
This image was taken with my Sony A7R II using my Sony FE 24-70 f/4 OSS Lens set on 51mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/14, shutter speed at 1/60th of a second and the ISO set at 640. This is a composite image processed in Lightroom and finalized in Photoshop using Nik Silver Efex Pro.
