In this macro photo the focus is right at the center of the flower. This photo of a Cosmos flower was shot with a shallow depth of field. The center of the flower is farther away from the lens of the camera than the petals or the green foliage around it. So the farther we look away from the center of the image the more out of focus the rest of the… Read More

The motion of the river far below. Combined with the motion of the leaves blowing in the wind up high. Looking down into the river valley at Letchworth State Park. I like how the two different types of motion are combined in this photo. Photo details: Nikon D300S. Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3. Focal length 18mm. ISO 125. 5.0 sec. f/13. Thank you for joining me on the blog today. See more photos of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 323. I love the variety of colors in this photo. Using some decorative corn cobs. Getting close up for a macro shot featuring just a small group of kernels. I focused on a section where the kernels were a little more irreguluar. Trying to find a spot that represented a wider variety of colors as well. Angling the lens to reduce the depth of field. Kernels… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 313. Today seemed like a good day to work with my fall décor some more. What are some creative ways I could photograph my fall themed items? I reviewed my recent photos to see what I had done in the past. The last thing I wanted to do was replicate something I had done recently. In trying to decide what to photograph I decided to work… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 305. I am really trying to focus on fall themes right now. It was a good day to play around with a few leaves. I previously found some leaves that had some modest autumn colors to them. Today I decided to take those leaves and use them in some indoor macro photography work. I placed the leaves on the clean white background. One leaf is a… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 304. I have been fortunate to have many plants that have been surviving well into fall now. These plants are outside on my deck. And they are just getting absolutely pounded here in upstate New York right now. So much rain. However, it has finally stopped raining. I thought this was a great opportunity to get outside and photograph these plants before they are gone. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 301. In addition tot he white background I used in yesterdays photo, I also now have a black background. It is perfect for table top photography. Using the black background. How to make it work? Pair it with a dark subject with bright highlights. That should make things stand out. Light it well with Lume Cube lights. Show the texture and the shades of color. Use… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 300. More work with new photography tools today. Always fun when new photography items arrive in the mail. Today was the first run working with the V Flats World white background. These tools are going to be very useful in working with indoor photography subjects. This clean white background worked perfect to complement the browns of the desk and the oranges and yellows of the gourd…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 299. It is really fascinating how new interests develop. Slowly over time. Little by little. Give yourself a new challenge. Grow new interests. I never thought I would enjoy photographing, for lack of a better term, still life. Even more so, creating these photographs in a sterile, indoor, studio like set up. I always considered myself and outdoor nature photography in everything I did. But with… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 297. I have done more indoor photography this past year than ever before. So I have decided to work towards enhancing my ability to do so. I bought a plexiglass table to place objects I am photographing on. This provides a nice clean background and foreground for objects. Then I can also do more with my lighting. I can shine light up through the bottom of… Read More
