I love to photograph flowers and sunsets. Sometimes I try to get creative and find unique ways to combine them. One of my favorite flowers are coneflowers. I bought some and planted them in a pot and kept them on my porch. It worked well for just such an occasion. The sun was setting over the trees. The sky was getting colorful. I placed the flowers up on the railing so I… Read More

I love public art. Public art gives so much flavor and emotion to a place. Having artwork on display for all to see helps to bring out vitality. I also think that public art is inspiring and aspirational. Being able to walk through a community and see artwork on the regular allows people to think more openly about art. People see art as a real tangible thing in life. Not just something… Read More

Over the course of 2021 I did something I have never done before. I took at least one photo every single day. Often many, many more than one photo. Then I took one of the photos I just created on that day and I shared it here on my blog. 2021 One photo a day project: One reason I wanted to do this is there are many times where I feel stuck,… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 351. Switching things up a bit. Playing around with food. Fruit. The two fruits I eat the most. Apples and bananas. Used two different background materials for nice clean non-distracting visuals. Illuminated the phot with two Lume Cube Panel Mini lights. Never realized there was so much texture in the skin of a banana. Not sure that will make me want to eat them more or… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 349. Today I returned to a specific subject matter that I photographed way back when I started this project over 300 days ago. I wanted to try to be a little more creative with the items I was photographing. Intersperse some of the items with other items. And now I had a few new tools to incorporate into this type of photography. So that added a… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 348. Had fun experimenting with some night photography. Tonight I worked with some of the newly added Christmas Lights outside out house. I used an f/16 aperture to create the starburst effect of the Christmas Lights. In the background you can see the just barely illuminated trees from the lights I placed out by the trees. And off in the distance the Christmas lights from out… 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

One photo a day challenge: Day 333. More playtime with light. But I guess that doesn’t really say much since that is essentially what all photography is. Lets rephrase. More playtime with long exposures and moving light. Trying to figure out what to photograph today. I was looking around and saw this snowflake decoration we have. I thought I might be able to do something interesting with it. I set up my… Read More

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
