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

One photo a day challenge: Day 66. Today I spent the morning out on some trails with friends. We hiked at Watkins Glen State Park. The park is most well known for all of its waterfalls along the gorge trail. But this time of year the gorge trail is closed. We spent our time hiking the upper rim trails. Even those trails were quite icy. Make sure you wear proper footwear. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 60. Over the weekend the weather was so nice for the winter. Today the longer the day went on the worse the weather got. The wind was whipping. I drove through several bands of snow on my commute. The temperatures were starting to drop. The forecast was for temps in the teens over night. I decided to stop at the park on my way home to… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 48. Normally when I photograph plants and scenery it is all comprised of plant material that has grown and burst through the ground. When I was out trying to discover something to photograph today I was thinking about plants again. But, I stumbled across a different way to photograph plants. Looking at a plant in a way that most of us do not actually get to… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 47. Another day of relentless winter weather here in upstate, NY. I couldn’t leave the house to go anywhere for photos. Trudging through the snow and ice with a camera didn’t feel inspiring today. I decided to just sit around the house with my camera out and ready and one of my lights out to light the scene. I thought this would be a good way… Read More
