Cumberland Falls in Spring

Cumberland Falls in the Spring

The Kentucky falls beneath a black sky

Cumberland Falls, I’ve been here more times than I can count. Its been around for millions of years with almost as many visitors.

The end of eagle falls trail and for some unknown reason, a pile of drift wood I felt I had to photograph.

I took a trip out here with the specific purpose of trying out my new Manfrotto carbon fiber tripod. I had a Manfrotto before, but this one was a definite upgrade.  It probably weighed two pounds less than the old one and most importantly, it was way more sexy!

If you get the tripod, remember and get a head for it as well. If you’re new to photography you’ll quickly learn better tripods come in two pieces.  You have the base with the legs, and a head, where you connect your camera.

I have used and owned this Manfrotto tripod before and think its freakin amazing.

If your new to photography you’ve probably seen these types of water shots. Everyone usually likes them and thinks you must be an expert. its an extremely easy shot to pull off. First set your Nikon DSLR camera on “P” or program mode. Memorize the settings for aperature and shutter speed. Now turn your camera on manual mode and dial in the aperture and shutter speed the camera gave you. So lets say the camera said F11 and 125 shutter speed. Dial it in, and simple start decreasing the shutter speed. So F11, but now turn your shutter speed to 100. Did it make a difference? If it didn’t……fuck it, turn the shutter speed to a 60th and see what happens.

Thats all for now folks.  Just to be clear, Victoria Meadows is no longer associated with Oni Studio. We are divorced.  I have since relocated to San Diego, and continuing the studio from down here.

    Boudoir in Crete.

    I did this shoot in Crete, Greece. This was shortly after my wife told me on Facebook video chat that she wanted a divorce.

    I was down in the dumps, discouraged and didn’t see a point to anything. I spent hours staring at the walls. The only thing I did was go to work and do P90X.

    Nimmo makes a great B&W boudoir in Crete, Greece.

     I was pretty confused at the time. I had no idea what a divorce was going to exactly entail. Near the bottom list of my concerns was the fate of Oni Studio.

    I had known Nimmo for a bit. She graciously volunteered to get me out of the house, which was exactly what I needed. In case you didn’t know, Nimmo is the lovely model in this shoot.

    At the time of the shoot Nimmo was a military police officer. Ya ya, I know, you want her to hand cuff you. Trust me, she hears it all the time ;)

    Don't let her fool you, Nimmo knows exactly how hot she is.

    Nimmo has since moved on from the Navy. She’s now in the Midwest, and despite my near constant bitching, she still has not put up a Model Mayhem account!

    Thats all for now folks. I know its been a long while since any activity out of Oni Studio. Just to be clear, Victoria Meadows is no longer associated with Oni Studio. I have since relocated to San Diego, and will be continuing the studio from down here.
