The Big Picture

I was shooting a portrait of our new heart surgeon the other day, and thought it might look kinda cool if i zoomed out to a wide angle and captured the whole scene. It completely changes the feel of the photo, as you see the darkened operating room equipment pushed out to the sides, along with the lighting setup and the shadows it casts. Pretty different from the tightly cropped head and shoulders shot with a neat, clean blue background that we'll use for the final product. I'd love it if the opportunity arose to use this type of shot, but more than likely this blog is the only exposure it will get. Click on the photo for a larger version to see the detail better.

Summer means a good time to drag out the old Nikon D100 and slap on my infrared filter. Shot this last night of some trees in my yard in the evening light. Black and white conversion done in Adobe Lightroom.
