For those of us who live in places where the winters are harsh summer is a time of celebration. We go out more and in my case I mostly don't want to be inside at all. My office as an entrance to the great out doors and I like to leave the door open and I like to work on the back porch. Going ou...
Sometimes I see a sunset that I want to shoot but there isn't anything to shoot except sunset. Just about anything will look nice as a silhouette with the sunset in the background. I got some gulls to pose for these shots. They work for popcorn. I need four more words to make my 50 so here they are.
For taking interior property photos a wide angle lens is a must. I don't know what more I can say about that. So I bought a wide angle lens. I was so excited when it came, I couldn't wait to use it. It is a heavy lens. A 12-24 Tokina, that weighs 10 pounds. That is an exaggeration but it is he...

These pictures may be offensive to those who live in the burbs or those who live in warmer climates. They saved Mickey's dinner, sometimes the li...

About nine months ago I wrote a post about high dynamic range photography, commonly referred to as HDR, or HDRI. It is a photo processing technique where several photos are combined to create a photo that is something more. It has not been easy for me to learn. I bought a book which has been hel...
I wrote this post a few months ago but neglected to put the 50 words in it that are needed for points. Can you imagine that this would not count as a blog post? There is a lot going on with it but heck I don't make the rules and I mostly don't follow them either which is why I sometimes end up w...
