Fresco in North Brunswick, NJ

Delicious surf and turf ready to be consumedI like to write about the food I eat. If nothing else, New Jersey is great for its massive selection of tasty restaurants.

Boogs and I had a delicious dinner at Fresco. The food was beyond delicious and I couldn’t believe how fresh the seafood was. We ordered lump crab meat and a lobster bisque for an appetizer. My entrée was surf and turf and I had to take some photos of this magnificent meal. It’s a shame I could only enjoy this meal once. It’d be great if you could DVR dinners like this and enjoy them a second or third time. (Don’t forget that you can now “pin” things you see on this site.)

“A Sweater for Duncan” book trailer

“A Sweater for Duncan” book trailer

"A Sweater for Duncan"Tonight I completed work on the book trailer for “A Sweater for Duncan”. My lovely wife Lindsay assisted me with a wonderful voiceover. The trailer has a very Levar Burton/”Reading Rainbow” feel to it. Completely intentional. Loved that show growing up!

The book is available through stores such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon. Go ahead and order it right now. Well? What are you waiting for?

Getting Back To Black & White Film

Getting Back To Black & White Film

I’ve been having a lot of fun developing rolls of black & white medium format film taken with the Holga camera. The process for developing film keeps me focused on creating compositions instead of having the ability to fire off 1,000 shots on digital. (Not that I do that!) When I started taking photographs, digital was still in its infancy. Long before Adobe Lightroom, there was just a darkroom. The particular negatives below were developed this morning. I use a changing bag and a light tight developing tank. In less than 30 minutes…voila! Negatives!

I Am Selling All Of My Camera Equipment

I Am Selling All Of My Camera Equipment

There comes a time when some photographers realizes “I like this as a hobby, but I don’t think I’m cutting it professionally.” After staring at my pile of equipment for the past week, I’ve decided to put it all up for sale. I have an XTi and 7D body along with numerous lenses in pristine condition. They are priced quite reasonably and are meant to sell quickly.

First up, my first DSLR. The XTi. I’m only asking $200.00 for that one. Has less than 50,000 clicks. Decent shape. Just a few scuff marks.

::record scratch:: I feel bad for you if you thought I was selling all of my camera equipment.

(Eh, maybe not.)

April Fools! See you next April 1!
