One photo a day challenge: Day 329. Trying to fuel my creativity. Playing with long exposures. Experimenting with moving light. Working with holiday themes. I think I probably created some more aesthetically pleasing photos without the moving lights, but I thought this was the perfect combination of the creativity of the moving lights and the Christmas lights that are decorating the image and lighting the scene as well.

One photo a day challenge: Day 328. Wanted to do something with the holiday lighting. Had an idea to do some long exposures in dimly lit rooms. Then decided to get a little more creative. Started moving the camera to create light streaks. Then realized I could move the lights during the long exposure to create light streaks. I like how the streaks of light turned out. I think I will have… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 324. Today I set out in the morning to photograph some waterfalls. And I set out to do it differently than I normally do. Normally when I photograph waterfalls my primary setup is my big DSLR on a big tripod. Then maybe I have another camera to capture different angles. And the main lens I use for waterfalls is an 18-200mm zoom. That gives me all… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 298. Today was a good day to work with my photography table gain. Instead of working with many items, today I selected one object to photogrpah. I chose this tiny little green pumpkin with orange spots. I shot a bunch of different angles and perspectives. Changing up my light a little bit from time to time. I didn’t try anything too extreme. The goal was to… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 143. The last several days have been hot. Today there was a quick rainstorm that broke the heat wave. The rains did not last long, but the rain was intense. The flowers got a good watering. I love photographing flowers. But, seldom do flowers look better than after a rainstorm. I love the few tiny and scattered water droplets on the back side of this flower… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 132. I continue to surprise myself as I have found inspiration to try new things with my photography during this challenge. I have always considered myself a natural light photographer. Not a lot of my photography uses light sources other than the available light outdoors or in a room if I am indoors. Three things have led me to trying new things in my photography: Having… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 117. Today was day three of my photography class I’m teaching at 171 Cedar Arts. The focus for today was on shutter speed. We talked about how to use shutter speed to effect your exposure. We also talked about how using shutter speed for exposure effects other aspects of your photos. The most obvious effect shutter speed has other than exposure is on motion. So, today… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 85. We took our dog, Colton, out for a walk along the trails near the Chemung River in Elmira, NY. I of course took my camera as well. I had dog walking duties for the first half of the walk. Colton was being a maniac. It seemed he may rip someone’s arm off yanking on his leash. The hope was I could reign him in until… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 70. For today’s daily photos I went to one of our local parks. I spend a lot of time creating photography at Eldridge Park in Elmira, New York. Mostly what I do is photograph the local wildlife at the park. Today I wanted to shift gears and try to photograph the landscape there. The main reason that I don’t photograph the landscapes there is because the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 69. I have really grown to love plants. I like planting them and trying to grow them. Plants are beautiful and they help the wildlife we live with. This past year when it became too cold for the plants to survive outside I thought I had a plan. I wanted to bring all of my potted plants inside and keep them growing. I had a safe… Read More
