There’s something poetic about an old cemetary. The Old Calton cemetary in Edinburgh is full of atmosphere and eerily beautiful…
Eric Krasno (known to his fans as Kraz) is the super talented funk and jazz guitarist of bands Soulive and Lettuce. He has very contorted expressions when he’s playing his solos, which of course is a boon for photographers!
There are many challenges in shooting lit fiber optic lamps. One of them is to manage to keep the strands well defined enough and still get the halo effect of out of focus light dots. I think I managed that in this one, and might print and frame it for my office…

The Eclade Charentaise is a mussle dish from the Charente region of France. Raw mussels are spread on a stone table, covered with pine needles which are set on fire. That’s how the mussles cook. It’s a very pungent dish, and an even more fascinating pattern to shoot for a photographer.
During my short stay in Teheran, I managed to briefly visit the Golestan Palace. There was a wonderful exhibition there of 19th centuries photos of Iran taken by Russian photographers. It was below grounds and walking out I stumbled on this wonderful stone stairwell that just begged to be shot. I wish someone had walked in the frame just as I shot, but alas…
I haven’t done near enough experimentations around minimalism in photography, but this is one I really like, shot outside of Groix Island in Brittany.
Above, a Stanley Clarke photo shot with the Panasonic LX-5 and very noisy as a result. Below, the same shot processed with XeL B&W in Lightroom. The final shot can be seen here. Early in the summer of 2011, I purchased Nik’s Silver Efex Pro, a very powerful tool to process photos for black & [...]
There are concert venues in Paris where you know they’ll never let you in with a DSLR, so I attended this Stanley Clarke / Stewart Copeland gig with my Panasonic LX-5. The shots were noisy and less detailed, but I managed to get this one, which I’m really proud of.
