Chris Honeysett at Menlo Park’s Fine Arts Festival

One of my favorite local photographers is Chris Honeysett, a master of black and white images. I own two of his large photographs – one in my home office and the other in my Glenbrook office – and they’re both great! Chris recently started blogging – his new blog is one of my regular photography-related reads!

I was out early this morning shooting photos for our InMenlo story on the festival – and spent a few minutes catching up with Chris. He’s recently moved almost all of his photography from his original view camera to digital.

While I was there, he showed me his latest aerial shot from Kauai, Hawaii – a remarkable grey scale image of the Kauai coastline – shot from the air in a helicopter with no doors! If you go to the festival, be sure to check out this particular image!

I imposed a bit on Chris for a few shots of him in front of his display. Here’s one of my favorites – enhanced using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 plugin for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom!
