Nature's Lawnmowers

A little kidding around. Sometimes it is nice in this fast-paced business to breath and watch goats, then have a little fun photographing them. Enjoy the slide show.

The Slide Show: Natures Lawnmowers

On a technical note: The main photo was taken with a Nikon D2HS at 200 ISO, f16, 1/500 and an off camera SB800 at TTL 0.

Cristo Ray

Today, I spent about three hours at a 60-year-old Catholic church in San Bernardino called, Christ The King, AKA for the two out-the-door, Spanish-speaking masses, Cristo Ray. The story is about how three churches in the area are closing down and consolidating into one. The people have mixed feelings about the idea, some see more room and others see the loss of history. Either way, the people were extremely friendly and let me photograph them. My favorite moment of the day was to hang out with the alter boys because of the color and shape of the cross in one's hand.
To see a temp slide show and full story go to The Sun link to the right or if that's gone I have it here for now...

A New Frontier

This is a new venture in photography for your host. As a Staff Photographer for The Sun Newspaper in San Bernardino, California, I intend to use this space to discuss, photojournalism. The aspects of photojournalism such as technical talk, ethics, approach, point of view and aesthetics will be covered. Here serious and some times not so serious aspects of photojournalism will be addressed on a regular basis. As I find something to discuss related to press photography during my encounters, I would like to share them with you.

A brief introduction: Currently I am a full-time, staff photographer for a metro newspaper of about 80,000 copies circulated daily. With the advent of technology, the online version of The Sun is under constant improvements. The internet is a wonderfull tool to communicate with readers. So visit www.sbsun.com on a regular basis to view stories and photographs from our Inland Empire communities. One more thing about moi, I have been a photographic story teller for about 17 years and currently am finishing a masters degree in photography.

Please post comments of a professional and or curious nature if you are so inclined and we will see where this goes.
