A Look Back

Let’s look back at the Brick Memorial High School Boys from 2011-2012.  Featured here are Vince Lombardi, Justin Oakley, Ryan Shockett, Brandon Rodgers, Jack Phair, Matt Del Hoz and Christopher Malmstrom battling with highly recruited (football) Mike Gesicki.

Memorial In a Thriller!

Brick Memorial Boys Basketball Team waged a thrilling comeback overtime win over Toms River North on Monday Jan. 27 2014 in a game played at Brick Memorial HS.  Scott White was instrumental in the win with three free throws; one to force overtime and two more to provide the one point margin with seconds remaining in the extra stanza.

3D Photos

3D photos are all the rage – have been for some time actually.  My son Christopher and his friends joined a long-standing mens football league this year.  They won the whole ball of wax playing against grizzly old veterans.  I’ll do a proper post on this in a day or two but for now here’s a still photo that I converted to 3D of Anthony Fontana throwing a TD pass.

Body Building Competition Comes To Brick

Spent some time helping a friend’s who son absolutely rocked in a body building competition at Brick Memorial High School on Sat. June 9, 2012. Rob Triano took home three 1st place prizes and I took home these shots

A cool event.

 

Fun With After Effects

Here’s a new take on my logo – in motion. Found some HD knock out footage and then motion tracked the Model T nearest the “camera” using AE’s built-in Mocha planar tracker. Slapped the logo on the side of the car.

My New Video Rig

Here’s my new video rig seen here on my deck – outfitted and ready to go.  Took a lot of time researching all aspects of this – built it piece by piece over time.   I think our video capabiltities have taken a quantum leap; we’ve got the ability to shoot your event in full HD – 1080p.

Added a New Printer To the Arsenal

In an effort to upgrade the quality, quantity and size of the prints we produce we’ve invested in an Epson Stylus Photo R2400 printer.  This printer has been around for a few years but it’s reputation grows as time passes.  Able to print color and stunning black & white prints as large as 13″ x 19″, this printer is a nice uptick from my HP all-in-one (ugh).

Graduation Party Photos!

Had the pleasure to shoot some pics for Dr. Uppal at his home in Colts Neck, NJ on June 19th.   He threw a  great party for his son Munna who graduated High School with honors.

The Build Out of My Site

It’s Sunday August 4 2010.  A day “off” from the other job and I’m home at the computer. 

You surf the Net day after day and after a few weeks you’ve visited hundreds of web sites.  Through all the years maybe thousands.  You take for granted all the work that goes into the construction of web sites and maintaining ’em.  Not to mention the know-how;  the education of learning how to do this stuff.  Suffice it to say, I’ve grown to develop great respect for those that have built nice sites.  We here are still “under construction” and will plow ahead little by little trying to carve out our little space in the great expanse that is the Web.

Arianna Bennett’s Engagement Photos

 

Not sure there that there’s a prettier setting than Spring Lake for an engagement photo shoot.  It was July 17th and we headed out to Devine Park on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon at the “golden hour” for optimum lighting.  A splash of fill from my speedlite here and there did the trick.  RM handled the video (soon to be up as well).   Arianna and her fiance Andrew did the rest.  Made it easy for me.  Here’s a sampling.

Canon Firmware Update

Canon has released firmware v2.0.7 for the 5D Mark II. The bug fix update corrects three problems: abnormal aperture behaviour when shooting video, a metering error in manual exposure mode and an instance of an attached WFT-E4/E4A or WFT-E4 II/IIA not powering down automatically after completing an FTP transfer.
