“I’m a troll,” he said. Then he paused, and added, more or less as an afterthought, “Fol rol de ol rol.”

Halo

HALO • Master Chief

I’m a Nerd.  And a Dork.  And possibly a Geek as well.  My whole life has been about video games and toys and comics and movies and. . .

I’ve been trying to incorporate my geek passions into my photography when I can.  It isn’t as often as I like, and when the chance comes up I try to jump on it.

So when a friend makes a suit of Halo armor out of stiffened cardboard?  Holy shit, YES!

Yoshi

POSTED June 26th, 2015 UNDER Friends, Instagram Photography

My Yoshi.  We lost her sister, Gromit, a few years ago.  She’s been one of my best friends for almost 18 years now.  Words can’t measure or explain how much I love her.  My heart broke when Gromit died, and I’m not looking forward to the pain and sadness I’m going to deal with when it’s Yoshi’s time to pass.

But she gives me endless love and friendship, and I’ve loved her and her sister with all of my heart.

 

Tip ‘o’ the day.

A c-stand and the center part of a tripod make an excellent “top down” shooting method.

I don’t shoot top-down as often as I should.  It’s a great angle.

Bring more than you need.

Like the saying goes: It’s better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.

This snapshot was taken back in December for a location gig in Boston.  I brought some of this thinking I wouldn’t need it, but I’ll bring it just in case.  “Just in Case” happened, and I needed it, and was so happy I had it.

Bring it.  Even if you don’t end up using it.  It’s worth lugging around because you simply never know what will happen.
