This portrait is of one of my recently graduate photography students named Mike Ririe. For his final project, Mike sought out a non-profit called Now I Can that focuses on treatments of children with physical disabilities and did a documentary project about them. Apparently he caught the vision of the program because they just hired him as their executive director. He asked me to create a portrait that he could use as an official portrait for his new position, here is one of them. Congratulations Mike!

I was able to borrow and then shoot for the first time with a Leica camera at a baby blessing (kind of a christening) for my newest niece. Its a camera that has intrigued me for a long time and it was fun to finally work with it. Here are a few of the candids that I took. It is liberating in a way after shooting so much with large format cameras. So my wish list has expanded by one camera and hopefully in the future I will have more to share.

Success and failure. The pieces began to work together just as I had envisioned for this image. I had the exposure timed out perfectly for the length of star trails I wanted as well as to coincide with the moon-rise to illuminate the temple of the moon while being framed by the silhouette of these other formations. Then everything else happened. Fogged film, focus drift, too much cloud cover, some unintended light painting, etc. This is actually a second attempt with just a half-hour exposure after I guessed that the initial exposure had gotten ruined. This one was still close but not close enough. I have a whole collection of images that were ruined just enough that I won't use them yet close enough to let me know how good they might have been. Enough went wrong here that this image will not be printed but I thought it would be ok to show the almost successful failures occasionally as well. I may try to recreate this image again in the future. We'll see.
