Jazz Music and Dance. Though I haven't been able to go out and take pictures of either for a while.

Seems to be a loved combination: model trains and photography. However, since I'm growing more into Macro photography, the trains tend to be too large...

... so here's just a detail then:

Thanks! Both clubs are in New Orleans and both were fairly dark going B&W seemed to really pull in the feeling for me.

I do multi-camera event video (SD DV PAL) recordings (3 x Panasonic NV-GS400). I initially bought a Pentax DSLR because I wanted better photos for DVD labels & cases.

I do some theatrical costume design and construction. I used my camera to shoot a production that featured several of my creations, thus leading a paid theatrical shoot later this week.

My wife does fire dancing with poi and for a while she made it my hobby to take pictures of her. It was a good learning curve for me but there was a lack of variety after a while. I did get to shoot a "Fire Circus" rehearsal and first performance just after I got my camera and I think I did pretty well considering the conditions and I only had the kit lens.
I actually enjoy my job enough for it to qualify as a hobby (just wish I didn't have to do it five days a week and that I got paid more). No I'm not a masochist, I work in a nursery so I get to be close to nature. I am lucky enough to have plenty of subjects to photograph without having to go anywhere.

Shot #1 is from my first 'shoot' when my wife and friends were 'burning' in Golden Gate park.

#2 is from 'Dream Time Circus'

#3 is from work.
