LIVE is an on-going project
involving candid, long exposure, photographs of ordinary people doing
ordinary things. All of the photographs were taken within the city
limits of Santa Cruz, California. They were also taken with the same
shutter speed, camera and lens, and the camera is always hand held. The
long shutter speed gives these photographs an artistic blur effect,
sometimes just giving the photo a soft focus effect, sometimes
There are two collections, Black and White photographs which were taken
at night and Color taken during the day. All of the Black and White
photos not only use the same shutter speed but also the same aperture.
The Color shots use the same shutter speed as the Black and White but
use different apertures for the correct exposure.
Selecting one of the main selections below will cause a new window with
that collection to appear. If you would like to investigate purchasing
rights to any of these photos, the instructions you need are on the
main STOCK page linked to below.
