We just finished photography for CareRing’s HOPE FOR COMMUNITY HEALTH Annual Luncheon on Wednesday, October 8th from 11:30 – 1:00 pm at the Westin Charlotte.  This is one of the non-profit projects we do every year or so. Care Ring is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing preventive health services for the uninsured, underinsured or those  otherwise lacking access to affordable, high-quality preventive health care. The organization annually serves more than 7,000 people in Mecklenburg County and is a leader in collaborative efforts to improve community health. (taken from their website).  As a charlotte healthcare photographer, we enjoy these projects because they give us a lot of room for creativity.  Check them out, they do great work in our community.

Final Thoughts from Farm Bureau 14- Location Commercial Photography

Photography by Michael LoBiondo

Alamo St. Market

My recent trip to San Antonio Tx for the Annual Farm Bureau Convention/Meeting was the learning experience I expected.  The farmers and ranchers I meet and interact with are always generous, courteous, and well mannered.  Plus they were some fabulous boots (see photo).  As we do mainly commercial photography throughout the year, this trip always starts the year with good people, good food, and some great imagery.

Some of the good eats were Bananas Foster (almost caught my coat on fire…exciting stuff) and  little peach empanadas.

There’s also a lot of skulls/masks here.  Some are very colorful.

The main speaker of the conference was retired Commander Stanley McChrystal.  This man served honorably for many years and he was a great speaker.

So now a new year begins.  Lots of images to share.  Thanks to Mary and Mike and Ken.  They make the long hours easy to bear and are fun to be with.

Next post…a prison story!  More later…

Annual Report Photography-Where Is Your Compass Pointing?

Commercial Photography by Michael LoBiondo Photography-www.mlobiondo.com

Which way to go?

You ever have one of those days where your compass is a little …”lost”.  Well Krystel Green of CATS always knows where her busses and trains are going, where they’ve been, and probably who’s riding! She’s the Senior Marketing Rep for CATS and we had just finished up doing Annual Report photography of one of her committees.  When I said “grab the sign and smile” she gave me her best pearly whites.

So when you want to know where CATS or LYNX goes, go to ridetransit.org or just ask Krystel…she’ll set your compass straight…or north, south, east or west!!

Editorial Photography: Get on the ball…

Editorial Photography

This editorial photography assignment was about photographing patients of a physical therapy group while they were using specific equipment.  There is actually someone on the other end of these shoes! There is some really high-tech equipment being used these days but you can’t ever forget the tried and true rubber ball.  Plus it comes in very nice colors (I AM partial to green).

 

 

Can you still swim?

at least they let you swim…

You get to the beach, you have your beach chairs, cooler, blankets, frisbee, lotion, radio (ipod with speakers?)…and you have to buy beach tags to play on the sand and all the other stuff has to go back in the car!  You can still swim and other….things (not on the sign! Besides, sand gets everywhere).  I remember the old days, where you could do all this and more as long as you were nice to your beach neighbors and picked up your trash (not on sign, either).

So have fun at the beach this holiday weekend.  The beaches are open, the water is still cool and the smell of the ocean is intoxicating.  Just make sure you pick up your trash and be home by dark:-)

Architectural Photography – Now’s the time

Architectural Photography

We are doing a lot of Architectural Photography now and put together this little piece.  We’re always looking for an interesting angle to photograph when interpreting the architect’s design.  Also, shooting at dusk gives us a unique perspective on the building,the lighting and space around it.

It’s also great to photograph the architects, developers or designers.  We also photograph the real workmen/women on the job but that’s for another blog post.

Industrial Photography: Why is this guy laughing??

Industrial Photography by Michael LoBiondo

Be Serious…

This is a popular reaction when I ask “Can you give me a serious look?”.  Most people then crack-up.  It’s all part of our customer service to get you laughing and lighten up the moment.  Relax…the camera loves’ you!!

DNC party glasses…

Party Glasses

When I go to photograph an event or conference, I am always looking for something that I can “play” with later, maybe make some “art”.  I was at an event during the DNC here in Charlotte last week and arrived earlier than normal because traffic was just a little more chaotic than usual.  After walking around the conference site, watching live MSNBC, just people watching, I went back to the event site to await the beginning of the festivities.  As they were still setting up, I noticed these glasses all at attention awaiting pouring of wine and conversation.

For the technical folks, I was using my 17-40 at 640asa on aperature priority.  This was at f4@1/30.  I put it through Lightroom with a great b&w holga filter.
