I just shot one frame of this vendor at Valleyfest Saturday, but during my edit I was struck by saturation of all the rainbow of colors. It is a photograph that doesn’t have movement or moment, but it does grab me in other ways. Color can be such a powerful influence on the mind. For me it stimulates my creativity leading me to other photographic possibilities. Nikon D700 Nikkor 24-120 mm f/4 Colin Mulvany/The Spokesman-Review

Andrew LaVoie with Jung Kim’s Martial Arts, breaks two boards with a double split kick during a tae kwon do exhibition at Valleyfest Saturday in Mirabeau Point Park. This is one of those snaps you just have to spray and pray. In other words, hit the shutter and fire off a blast of frames hoping you’ve captured the moment. I like the sawdust coming off the board on the right. I used my 85 mm  f/1.4  lens wide open to soften the background up and make the subject pop. With  only a few inches in focus, I caught the moment just as Andrew passed through the plane of focus. With many DSLR cameras having fast motor drives these days, it is much easier to shoot a burst of frames while letting your subject pass through a point of focus. You should get a least one useable image sharp like I did. Whew! Colin Mulvany/The Spokesman-Review Nikon D700 Nikkor 85mm f/1.4

When Spokane photographer Tony Boccaccio opened a book of photographs he had taken when he was in college, he was amazed at how each image revealed a roadmap of his life.

This video is a personal project I shot and edited on my own time. I wanted to try something different than the news video I’ve been shooting for the newspaper. It is the longest video (11 minutes) that I have ever produced. I’m not sure many will won’t to invest the time, but if they stay to the end there is an excellent message.
