Photo Friday: Flowers in a Vase

October 19, 2018

Today’s shot is just like the title, very simple.  That’s the type of artistic photography I love.

This shot was taken right after winter storm Quinn.

Photo Friday: Framed

September 15, 2017

The Art of Photography, on YouTube, posted a challenge about framing the subject, and I found this guy biking in Portland between two signs.  The color in the signs are too distracting, so I changed it to black and white.

First Look Photo: They do Sleep

September 21, 2016

Out of all the things that most people never see, including baby pigeons and foxes that climb trees, I’ve seen most of them, but the one thing I never expected to see I saw, and captured this week.

Today is a shot of a bumble bee sleeping, which gave me the opportunity to get several shots without the bee moving.  How could I pass up the opportunity.

Photo Friday: School Assignment

September 16, 2016

I recently did an assignment for school.  The only instructions I received was use a wine glass, and some clear liquid.  It was a lighting assignment, and it was to light it so it brings out the translucent liquid.

After setting up the lights, I realized it looked more like a print ad for Canada dry.  The words would say “The soft drink with a touch of class.”

Now here’s the shot.

Photo Friday: To Bee

August 5, 2016

This week I was out shooting for my school assignments, when I happened on some cone flowers that were buzzing with bumble bees.  With my love of shooting close ups, I couldn’t resist the opportunity.  It wasn’t part of my school assignment, but you take the shots as they come.

Photo Friday: Hitting Gold

July 29, 2016

I love dragonflies.  They are harmless to humans, and they eat mosquitos and black flies.  Dragonflies come in a variety of colors, and they make great photo subjects.

This week I was at Mill Creek park, shooting every dragonfly that would sit still long enough, when I saw something golden cross my path.  I went to where it landed, and saw a black dragonfly, with golden wings.  This was something I had never seen, so I started snapping.

After 10 good shots, I found one that was exceptionally clear, so I have chosen this as the photo of the week, and my favorite shot of the month.

Photo Friday: Exposure Exposed

July 15, 2016

Photography, like any art, is not a series of rules.  It is a series of guidelines.  The biggest of these involves what is thought of as correct exposure.  Exposure is important, especially in documentation, however, using it creatively can have very interesting results.

Today’s  photo is such an example.  The intentional over exposure of the image gives the picture a dreamy appearance, while still being a beautiful photograph of a queen anne’s lace.
