Sometimes I get the idea to try and do something well outside my normal style of photogrpahy. During the holiday season of 2021 I decided to try and do something interesting with lights. Holiday decorations were all about. I decided to see what I could do. Placed lights outside on the ground to illuminate the main subject, the tree. Then I triggered the camera for a 30 second exposure. And I walked… Read More
One of my favorite holiday traditions in our area is the Parade of Lights. This holiday parade features slow moving displays featuring lights. Some displays are people with lights. Other displays in the Parade of Lights are large vehicles adorned with lights. I like to set up where I can watch the parade move down the street right across from me. I bring my tripod and set up with a wide angle… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 356. Walking around the house thinking about what to photograph. My first idea was to photograph some fresh bought produce that we had just picked up at the grocery store. Maybe an onion. Then I walked by a shelf with a nice Christmas decoration on it. And my mind flipped into a totally different gear. A jar. Frosted glass. Decorated with glitter. Merry Christmas written across… Read More
One phot a day challenge: Day 341. Utilized another new piece of gear for my “photo studio”. A large 4 foot by 4 foot black background. Experimented with different lights. Tried different configurations of lights. Moved the lights in different patterns. Moved lights fast. Then slowed the movements down. More lights. Fewer lights. Only moving lights. Then static lights with moving lights streaking across. This last configuration is one of the photos… Read More
