This image of shiraz jumping out of a glass was not created using Photoshop trickery; it is actual movement captured at a precise moment of time.


I shot this image for a client, having been referred by a photography mate who knew I had shot this type of image before.


This image was the first take in a series of many. Not bad for a second attempt at this kind of image!


Lighting setup:


1. Canon Speedlite 580EX II at 24mm zoom and 1/64th and -0.7 power, placed high at 45 degrees camera right, fired at the backdrop, and triggered with a PocketWizard PLUS II.

My friends own several acres of vineyards in Sonoma County. It's been awhile since we visited, so we escaped the Bakersfield heat in exchange for 65 degrees and an ocean breeze. Oh yeah, and sampling some wine ;-)

The Vakil bazaar in Shiraz, Iran.


Vakil Bazaar (Persian: بازار وکیل‎) is the main bazaar of Shiraz, Iran, located in the historical center of the city.


It is thought that the market originally was established by the Buwayhids in the 11th century AD, and was completed mainly by the Atabaks of Fars, and only was renamed after Karim Khan Zand in the 18th century.


The Bazaar has beautiful courtyards, caravansarais, bath houses, and old shops which are deemed among the best places in Shiraz to buy all kinds of Persian rugs, spices, copper handicrafts and antiques.


Like other middle eastern Bazaars there are a few numbers of mosques and Imamzadehs constructed adjacent or behind the Bazaar.
