Sucker for Black and White

It’s true. I’m a sucker for good black and white photography. I think it goes back to high school when I took my first photography class. I was a little freaked out the teacher started talking about rolling film and having to transferring it from the canister to the developing spool. The first time I

Rock the Dress

Even though I don’t shoot a lot of weddings, I can appreciate great wedding photography. I came across a Rock the Dress post on another blog and the images are great. The blog is maintained by Laura Olson. To make it even better, Laura provided an Animoto video, too. I did a little more poking

First Spokes Model for Class of 2012

I had a session with Michaela, my first spokes model for the Class of 2012. We had a recent snow fall, so we decided to get some pictures outside. Sure, not a lot of seniors get their pictures down outside, but that is one of the advances of being a spokes model and December in

Alexia Sinclair: Inspirational Photographic Illustration

Someone I follow on Twitter recently had a tweet about Alexia Sinclair. Alexia is a photographic artist with a website and blog here. I checked out her work and was stunned. How can such an artist be flying under the radar. She has a series called the “The Royal Dozen.” It is a photographic series

From Shoebox to Slide-Show

Have you ever had a shoebox or folder full of images but really didn’t know what to do with them? You might might share them on Facebook, but that will probably be about the most you will do with them. What about creating a slide-show with them? A lot of photo websites have slide-show features

Jewelry By Candyce

Jewelry By Candyce Originally uploaded by Mark Oehler These are some necklaces a friend of mine created. I really love the color of them and they lit very nicely. I see so many local ads that are done for a variety of products. The photography typically looks like someone laid it on a table and

Lady on the Lake

Lady on the Lake Originally uploaded by Mark Oehler This was a concept I shot last year. The model and I headed out to Palo Lake with this concept in mind. The trick was to get to her to run fast enough that she wouldn’t sink in the water….okay, maybe that is true. We had

Boy Reading

Boy Reading Originally uploaded by Mark Oehler I have always enjoyed photographing children doing something other than looking at the camera. I’m not saying that I don’t ever want them looking at the camera, but images like this tell a story. The viewer will ask questions and really start to engage with the image. That
