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 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 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

One photo a day challenge: Day 46. During this challenge there are subjects that I have come back to more than once. When I do I try to share a different type of photo. If I can I try to take the same subject and photograph it in a different way. It is possible to photograph the same subject with very different results. I have photographed different types of hardware. Specifically I… Read More

I kicked off the new year by setting some new and ambitious goals/resolutions for January. My goals included health and fitness, art, creativity and work objectives. January Goals

One photo a day challenge: Day 14. One of the goals of this photography challenge has been to allow myself opportunities to be more creative in my photography. Creating a new photograph every single day gives me more opportunities to stretch and try new things. When I am not creating new photography as frequently I feel pressure to “get it right”. I don’t feel free to take chances. I don’t challenge myself… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 12. For the first time in a while I acquired a new camera and new lenses. They are very different from the cameras I am used to using. So what I am going to do is tie learning how to use the new tools to this photography challenge. What better way to learn to use a new tool than to create brand new art with it… Read More

Today is day 8 of my one photo a day challenge. For the past coupled of years I have been taking plants we’ve had gowning outside in warmer weather and move them indoors in the cold upstate New York fall and winter. I try to keep them alive for two main reasons. One reason is I want to keep them alive so they can quickly grow and blossom early in the spring… Read More
