I prefer editorial photography that tells a story. The story itself doesn't have to be dramatic, subtle things are surprisingly fun to capture, it can simply be a moment in time when the light is best. Light is the essence of photography, that and composition. But lighting is key. Enjoy.

Owls are mysterious hunters. The eyes are their greatest advantage, especially at night when they search for prey.
In the niche world of Vanagons camping is everything. Photographed off tripod at sunset in Cannonville, Utah.
Corvette LS1 Engine
Black on black small block Chevy engine photographed outdoors. Shot in open shade with slight amount of fill light off camera.
Sano: Clean, spotless, perfection. The paint on this Corvette was smooth as silk.
A '51 Ford Custom Club Coupe is a spectacular example of post-war craftsmanship. The dash is like no other, and this one had the look I wanted.
935 Porsche Kremer
Rare as a white tiger, this Kremer tuned Porsche is set against a string of lights in a time exposure to create speed with a static image.

Shooting static vehicles means one must be innovative to convey a sense of movement. Dust was kicked up by a moving car, captured by a long exposure with camera on tripod.
Again, conveying speed is incredibly easy to do even when the subject is parked. Get a tripod and have fun.
Natural light is the best, I don't own a flash because it is too artificial. I prefer shooting in the ambient light reflecting around the camera.
Something in the way the light radiated from above caught my attention. It's a brick and motar home from the turn of the century in central Utah. The slight crack in the window curtain gave it ghostly presence.

It saw it perched there staring at me, and I wanted to swat it. Instead, I pulled out the iPhone.
