Katie Schurman_DanceShoot_Pittsburgh

Here is a shoot I did with Katie Schurman a dancer who graduated from Point Park University.

Assistant:
Kaustubh Misra

The cars were rushing by, and since we were shooting from across the street, for most of the shoot we were just shooting between the lights to avoid the cars.  But in the end I decided I really like the movement and implications of the light.

These single dancers, dancing/interacting with themselves in one frame really take some planning, and some warming up to.  By the end we were flying.

Here are a few shots.

8-17-09_Bert Monroy_NAPP_Creativity Tour_DLCC

I went to see Bert Monroy with National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center (DLCC) in Pittsburgh PA. He talked about photo realistic illustrations. It was truly inspiring to see just a taste of what you could really accomplish with an idea and Photoshop.

If it weren't for the guys over at the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, I wouldn't be where I am today. And just for situations being ironic, my photos are hung up all over the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in large metal poster format, one (or 2) of the 50 or so of them can be seen below. I may post some photos of the posters in the interior at some later point in time.
