Product photo shoot by Udo Luetze

First attempt at shooting products in the studio.  It is quiet challenging to get the light just right and to eliminate unwanted reflections.  I think I like this kind of photography.

Part of the 2014 Warbirds over Monroe air show was a reenactment of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  A day which will live in infamy and never be forgotten thanks to the CAF.

Moon over Charlotte by Udo Luetze

Woke up at 3:00am this morning and there it was; a perfect full moon and not a cloud in the sky.  So, who needs sleep when you can setup you tripod and camera gear in front of your house at 3:00am?  In your bath robe.

This was taken with my Nikon D810 and the 200-400 F 4.0 lens at 400mm.

Last night was race night in Hickory NC and I had a chance to capture some NASCAR action.  The car number 9 is William Byron who competed in the NWAAS Late Model race.  He started in pole and took home the victory.  Congratulations William.

More pictures will follow soon.

Sunset in the Mountains by Udo Luetze

The end of  a beautiful day in the mountains of North Carolina.  Although clouds add texture to a sunset, a cloudless sky can display a beautiful gradient of oranges.  The light seems so fragile, it will only last a moment.
