What’s the best camera in the world? The one that is with you of course! Even if you have all the hot new Canon bodies and sharpest lenses in your backpack…you can’t create an image if it appears before you. The moment is gone. You haven’t even unzipped the bag fully. It’s so easy to miss the moment.

Lately cell phones have been getting pretty capable at capturing images. They are even putting out images larger than my first digital camera! (some early fuji finepix camera I think…maybe a megapixel or two…) Samsung has even decided to take the next step. Looks more like camera with a phone built in to me… I know its not late-breaking any more, but photographer Chase Jarvis lately put out an awesome app for iphones along with a book and website/community. The Best Camera… It’s definitely worth checking out if you have ever doubted your phone as a way to create images.

I captured the image above with an EnV Touch. No fun apps…but at least I have exposure compensation! (It also handles panoramas and parallax decently to my surprise.) The landscape was captured out of a car window. My camera was in a bag by my feet. I would have never been able to get it out in time. Lately I have found myself really seeing the world differently again. I feel somewhat liberated from equipment again just knowing that if I am in the moment, I can act as long as even my phone is with me. Go make images. Capture the world and show us who we are. If you have a phone…you have an image!

Now if only my phone could trigger Pocket Wizards…

Everything you see, hear, touch, taste, smell, or sense in any way is an aspect of Divinity. It is when you judge it to be something else that it shows up as something else in your life.

Therefore, judge not, and neither condemn.

For that which you judge, judges you; and that which you condemn will condemn you. Yet that which you see for what it really is will see you for what you really are. And therein will be found your peace.
–Neale Donald Walsch

I am fascinated by that statement. I find myself thinking about it so many times in various encounters and situations. I come back to the question…Who do I really want to be? And with that…Who do you really want to be?

Traditional Heavy Metal is alive and well in America! Jack Frost’s Seven Witches is an awesome act to see live if they come by your town! I had the opportunity to shoot their photo the other night. Totally rockin’ show, very cool guys, and awesome music. I thought I would post a few of my favorites from the night. Enjoy!

I just finished a photo shoot for heavy metal band Burning Shadows. (You can also visit them on their Burning Shadows MySpace Page) I definitely wished the lighting engineer used less red that evening. Note to any lighting engineers…complete red wash might make bands seem much scarier…but it makes photographers get annoyed very quickly! (…hahaha, I guess I can say I was seeing red!!!) Not every gig can have stadium spotlights and fifty different color gels…oh well! Being serious though, it was an awesome gig the band had in Virginia. Their new lineup is great and they have new music coming soon! If you like metal, I would check them out.


I got lost while driving through the country recently …as usual! Left with no choice, my companions and I had to stop for directions. Actually I was navigating that day and Google Maps was way off course for once. (and we left our GPS 300 miles away…) So…the only place around…Smiley’s Fuel City! This is THE PLACE to get cigarettes, sodas, and showers! …Showers?!?!?! Maybe its just me…but I have never heard of such a thing in my life! Cigarettes, sodas, AND showers! All in one place! Can’t get better than that! This is better than Walmart! Cigarettes, sodas, and showers.

Cigarettes, Sodas, and Showers!

Cigarettes, Sodas, and Showers!

I wonder if this is where the showers are…

Showers!?...Maybe!

Showers!?...Maybe!
