Why I finally ordered my Fujifilm x100s this morning.
Pocket-Sized Solution Olloclip, the company that brought you the 3-in-1 iPhone lens attachment (macro, panoramic and fisheye), introduced its first telephoto lens for the iPhone 5 (as well as the 4 and 4S). The $99.99 clip-on also adds a polarizing lens (more on that later). Zoom attachments for the iPhone are not a new development, […]
As stated in an earlier post, for this session we shot in the salon as we had 4 hair stylist and models and wanted to give the artists access to all their tools. Also I did not want to shuttle the subjects back and forth from location to salon. I used a simple three light […]
It has been a while since I have photographed Elizabeth Cruz for a series of bikini images that were VERY well received. After texting back and forth the night before we decided to get together and shoot despite the weather. Weather? Well I am a location shooter and the overnight frost warning did not bode […]

Inspired by the work of Joel Grimes and my friend Patricia’s iconic photo this is my interpretation of the female shoulder pad football image. My work has been described as sensual and intimate, this image I believe has both. The original photo of Alyssa was shot on Adorama Seamless Background Paper suspended from a Manfrotto […]
B&H in NYC is selling refurbished Canon 7D camera bodies for only $1,199 here. This is $200 cheaper than Canon sells their refurbs and $300 lower than the new price. While supplies last.
On my first full day in Paris I grabbed my 85mm f1.2 and 17-24mm f2.8 and took the open top bus tour. It’s a great way to scope out a big city in a hurry for future shoot days. Europe Day 2 – Paris Tour from David 'Art' Wooten on Vimeo.
The folks at Wind River Systems have been trying to schedule me to re-shoot their executive photos for almost a year. The goal was to get them while at the corporate HQ. Though we came close a few times, it always fell through at the last minute. To be honest, I expected as much. I […]
As a follow up to last week’s posting, I have received the Carry Speed and Black Rapid camera straps. Here are my thoughts… ; ;
I was a big fan of the Crumpler line of camera accessories. I used the Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home Photo Bag to store my lenses and the Crumpler Industry Disgrace Camera Straps to hang my cameras. They are well made products and quite comfortable…IF. If you have a leather neck and carry small cameras […]
Another behind the scenes video. Probably the most requested model in my portfolio is Beth Cruz. Reggie Rucker’s client wanted to do a New Orleans style Fat Tuesday poster for there annual event Central Valley event. I think we NAILED IT Behind the scenes of Tresetti’s Fat Tuesday Poster from Luis Alcazar on Vimeo. […]
Nice behind the scenes video of the Lucky Fest Promo I shot. We photographed everything near the event location as the creative director needed stills of the street and venue then images of various actors and models so he could composite it all afterwards. After the dawn street session we erected a white backdrop in […]
So I was recently sent by my one of my publishers to shoot a portrait for a financial services client. The executive wished to run an ad in the next issue and wanted a new head shot. Normally we send one of my peers to shoot these, but at the client’s and ad sales manager’s […]
My agent Ronald Bolden found us a new client last week in American Basketball Association’s East Bay Pit Bulls. After meeting on Monday we sketched out a tentative shoot schedule and some collateral needs for re-branding the team. However right as we were wrapping up, the team’s owner Debra received a call from the New […]
When on location conditions are not always optimal. For this shoot with the amazing Jennifer Roberts we where faced with a low ceiling, huge floor to ceiling windows and a narrow room. Because Jennifer is like 5’10″ and I wanted to upshoot her to create a bit of drama and a feeling of sitting in […]
I get a lot of questions about my lighting and many say they would love to use Profoto and my modifiers but they are just too expensive. Well for this video, I shot all the images with a basic strobitst kit – 2 flashes and two light stands. Beautiful light is not expensive Katelyn Kline […]

Long term review of the Lastolite All-in-One Umbrella
I find that photographers fall into two camps, the extremely helpful and the highly secretive. This classification is not absolute, as photogs will move from either classification from time to time. I find nothing will create secrecy as fast as a new post processing technique or a new lighting setup. In a industry that on […]
