First Look Photo: Light and Shape

February 28, 2018

Today’s picture is all about light and shape.  It’s lit from the inside of a cover over a building.

First Look Photo: City Architecture

February 7, 2018

Thanks to the wonderful website 52Frames.com I have been looking at some of the architecture of Portland.  I really like the looks of the city building, in the tower, at night.  I especially like the way the arches are lit up.

Photo Friday: Available Light

January 12, 2018

The last time I tried to photograph one of these nocturnal rabbits, I had to use flash which caused a horrible case of red eye.  This time, I was privileged to capture another rabbit in front of a lit sign, without cropping.

I love the glow the street light cast on this sidewalk.

The good thing about cityscapes is the different angles, and lighting makes each shot unique.

First Look Photo: Winding Down, and Up

April 19, 2017

As I start the last photo assignment for the professional course at New York Institute of Photography, I am happy to note that this is not the end of my education, but the beginning.

My career in the photo industry is about to begin, maybe not today, but soon, and I know the need for continued education will be a key to my growth as a photographer, and eventual success of all I dream my career can be.

With that, here is today’s photo from my last assignment, there are going to be two more, but I haven’t taken them yet.

First Look Photo: Moving Forward

December 14, 2016

I’ve never made it a secret that my eventual goal is to be a photographer for National Geographic, however they’re not going to knock down my door with offers if they don’t know I exist, so there has to be some steps taken to get my name out there.  I will never stop with the nature photography, but I also need to get other types of photography in there, if only to teach me some valuable lessons in lighting and composition.

My first step is product photography.  It’s a good market to step into, and it could possibly serve to pay me in the end.

Today’s photo is one of those shots.  It is one of my wife’s go to products, and I thought it would be great photographed in my light tent.

Yes, I know I forgot to remove the fur on top.  lol

Photo Friday: City Lights

December 9, 2016

In this challenge, I wanted to photograph city lights in a different way.  Most of the photographs I see has a pretty solid skyline, so I thought I would break that up with the mostly dark condos in the middle ground.  I included the condo with all the lights on to add a little balance to the overall image.

Keeping in mind these challenges are not all about the camera, this shot was taken on my little point and shoot, while on a trip to the grocery store.city-lights

First Look Photo: Cloudscape

November 30, 2016

I love clouds.  They are beautiful, dramatic, and no two cloud formations are ever the same.  The reason I call today’s photo a cloudscape, and not a landscape, is the majority of the shot is about the clouds, and the interplay of light and shadow from the early approach of the sun on the scene.

Photo Friday: God’s Fingers

November 4, 2016

There is a natural phenomena when the sun gets behind thick clouds with breaks, and casts a series of focused light beams through the breaks.  There are a multitude of names for this, but my favorite is from my favorite vlogger, Cory Williams (aka Mr. Safety). That term is “God’s fingers”.

On Wednesday I saw some good examples of this, so today’s photo is an example of it.
