Some photographer friends of mine (new and old) gathered at the Carriage House Studio in Washington DC to practice our craft. It was a good time with plenty of space, equipment, and people to hone your skills. The Carriage House offers lots of opportunity to gather for photographers. Check them out at the link above.
Here are just a few from the day.
Are you interested in a great FaceBook profile pic? I can make you look your best.

Our good friend Captain Jim has his website up and running and taking reservations. As you may recall, we sailed with Jim as part of the Boy Scout's Sea Base National High Adventure last summer. See previous post HERE. Some of my photography made its way onto his webpage. Check it out here: Midnight Dragon. The fish photo was actually taken by my son Danny.

Mad Brenda was not the least bit deterred by last night's snowstorm and rocked Jammin Java here in Northern Virginia. The music was fantastic and the crowd was loving it. Concert photography is challenging, more so when the night club in which you are in is very dimly lit.
The photos above were taken with a Canon 7D racked out at 6400 ISO, with a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 lens, tweaked in Adobe Lightroom, and denoised in CS4 using Topaz deNoise software. I think the result is fair. Gotta keep trying to find that diamond in the rough.
The entire evening was broadcast by my friend Jim Folliard of Fairfax Video Studio on uStreamTV so my kids were able to watch the band (and me) on my MAC. How cool is that?
