Yes, I’m that weird neighbor you’ll catch laying in the back yard playing with dandelions. … I caught this full bloom this afternoon and, before the wind had its way with her, I wanted to document its stunning beauty. I’ve included a couple tight closeup crops to show you what I’m seeing as [...]
Click to view full-screen. I love new print day. Being a former pressman and darkroom technician, I get a bit particular with my personal art and prints. Black and white photos are often printed locally, with some of my favorite vendors, but color images are usually sent out to online sources. I seem [...]
I can't get over the beautiful detail in the dandelion and the matronly lady perched above. The slight hint of foreground peaking in on the left brings everything back to center... I may like this one better... What are your thoughts? Shot digital Nikon D7100 - 90mm Macro ISO 400, F/7.1, 1/80sec Over the next [...]
Image description and details will go here.
Defending your chocolate stash is hard enough. What do you do when they're as big as a Volkswagen? Damn. Actually an outtake from the Queen's Cup post I made earlier this week, but I loved her attitude so much I wanted to share it. I also like the fuller frame shot on this. It gives [...]
That surprise you had the first time you bit into a peanut M&M? Yeah... Bags of things were so prevalent when I was in grade school, I'm shocked anyone lived past 4th grade. Or did they? 🤣 Shot digital Nikon D7100 ISO125, 90mm Macro, f13, 1/40s - Cropped and processed in Photoshop. Over the next [...]
I can just hear it... "Quick, Marsha, I got one... take the picture!" The days of touring the Cheeto fields and milling about with the endangered prehistoric Cheetosaurs is long gone, but we have our photos for memories, right? Hope you're ready for a few of these from the BIG FOOD series. I had some [...]
New... BIG FOOD Series. I was playing a bit with the miniatures again yesterday. A push into a little more surreal fun in the studio yesterday. She looked so regal. Love the color and depth. Shot digital Nikon D7100 ISO125, 90mm Macro, f8, 1/160 - Cropped and processed in Photoshop. Over the next few weeks, [...]
Spent the day at the @iowastatefair yesterday with camera in tow. It was the first time I'd consciously brought my "good" camera to the fair since my kids were young. I really struggled to get a shot I liked... I'm not quite comfortable with "Street photography" per se, but wanted to try... so, of course, I get [...]
Time spent in some multiple exposure / HDR photography days. This one is certainly a favorite from the bunch.
