Portraiture started out with basic tools like speedlights and small softboxes, photographing family, friends and anyone else I could find.

One of the major challenges in landscape photography is managing reflected light, especially when working around water.  The single best way to subdue reflection is to use a circular polarizing filter to control the amount of scattered light across the lens in full sun.

Nikon D800, 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens @45mm, f/11, 1/800s, ISO 400.

That means I have thousands of pictures I’ve never done anything with at all. In the last year and half, however, […]

  If you want to feel joy, feel alive and see images that exude some real emotion, you will love the work of Chris Lambeth. “I really like the bright, happy, colorful looks. I just like seeing people happy and I like to capture that!” Though that is what Chris tends to shoot a lot […]

I’ve been on a quest to experiment with mounting multiple cameras in many places.  This has mainly taken place with GoPro cameras for shooting both stills and videos.
