Super Models Strip For Climate change

I am re-posting this from 350.org. Besides big models appearing in it and the video raising awareness on climate change, I was excited to see Rachel Alexander appearing in it. She is one of my favorite models and people. You may remember her from a couple of my stories;

Photo of the Day - Dafne

Here is another one of my favorites from the archive. It is a photo of my friend Dafne taken a while back. I think she looks like Angelina Jolie.

The shot is very simple. Taken on a Canon Rebel with a 50mm lens. ISO 100 F10 1/80 with an external flash slightly above the camera.... Plus hot model.


Thanks

Photo of the Day – Dove from APM Models

Okay, photo of the day implies that I post a photo every day….which I clearly do not. I am going to try to post more of my work, and a broader range of my work. I started posting some of more of my natural light work and I got a lot of encouraging emails. Here is another one.

This photo is from my archive. It was shot in Brooklyn against my window. I think I was using a reflector. The model is the beautiful Dove from APM.

Dove085i

It was shot on a Canon Rebel with the 18-55mm lens. Focal length was 35mm and the exposure was ISO 400 F4.5 1/25 sec.

Photography.Book.Now San Francisco Event – Michael Creagh

What a hectic week. I headed out West to attend Blurb's San Francisco Photography.Book.Now meet-up. This was a followup to the awards ceremony in New York 2 weeks ago. Here is a link to my post on that event: http://michaelcreagh.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/photography-book-now-awards-new-york-2009-michael-creagh/

West


I only managed to be in San Francisco just under 24 hours, but it was well worth the trip. I only had an hour to walk around and take some photos. I focused on what was decidedly not New York.

The event was great. It was held at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (http://www.thecjm.org/). It is an absolutely beautiful building and a great venue for an event.

The event was once again packed with book and photography lovers pouring through all the winning books. I met some very cool people. I always find it odd but fun, to see someone looking through my book. And with books everywhere, you can't miss seeing some people spend an hour looking at your photos, and then another spending about 10 seconds! If you missed this event, there are still 2 morein Chicago and London. I am too busy to make it out to them, but judging by the last 2 events, they will be great.
