First Look Photo: The Last Drop

March 7, 2018

Here’s a shot I took for a challenge on depth of field.  It didn’t make it as the final image, but I still like the result, and the focus on the water drop.

The last drop

Photo Friday: Don’t put the camera away.

December 4, 2015

I will never understand the idea of putting the camera away as soon as all the leaves have fallen, before Winter.  Every season has something different, and beautiful, to offer to every photographer, whether amateur or professional.

If at any time you feel there is a total lack of subjects, just look closer.  The macro world has an unlimited supply of subjects.  Today’s photos show some of the detailed beauty that can be found only by getting a little closer.

These photos were taken with my Canon 7D Mark II, and edited in Adobe Lightroom.  The only exception is the squirrel, which was taken with a Canon SX610HS.

Better Christmas Photo

December 10, 2012

I took this picture to replace the shot I got before.  The problem with the earlier version is that it has nothing to do with Christmas.  It’s just the top of the candle with blurry lights.

What I really wanted was a picture that at least had the feel of Christmas to it.  Of course, I didn’t want to over do the picture, so I kept the props to a minimum; just red berries, and pine.  I used a small slave flash for the lighting, but the first few shots were blown out.  In the end, I had to bounce the flash off the wall, then darken a little in Photoshop.

I hope you all enjoy it.
