Hot Young Chicks!

A few weeks ago on my front balcony, birds built a nest in a hanging plant just two feet from the window. For the next ten days I had a front-row seat witnessing the rapid growth of four baby birds. Luckily I was able to capture this process photographically. Please take a look if you're interested. Click on a photo for more photos and stories. Anyone know what kind of birds these are?

(Strobe) Lights, Camera, Action!

This is going to be quite a shock to some of my photographer friends but HELL HATH FROZEN OVER - I purchased my first strobe system. Yesterday was my first day experimenting with them. I got together with my good friend and artist Tiffany Trenda and did these shots in direct noon daylight. I'm quite happy with the results. They totally don't look like my usual style, but that's okay. I purchased them mainly for magazine shoots. For my personal work, I'll keep shooting my usual natural light, black and white style (so much easier!).
