One photo a day challenge: Day 99. Today I was able to visit a place I really enjoy. And the funny part is I have been here plenty and its always a good time. But somehow I am not sure I have ever come here specifically for photography. Spencer Crest Today I spent time on the trails at Spencer Crest Nature Center. I just meandered around and absorbed the nature. My initial… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 62. Today was grocery day. That means it was the perfect opportunity to acquire a new subject for todays photographs. The store always has a nice selection of flowers. When photographing flowers indoor I prefer lighter colored flowers because that requires less light, which there typically is less of indoors. The flowers I selected for todays photographs was a bouquet of purple carnations. To photograph the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 39. Sometimes I am actually thinking about what I am going to photograph for this project in advance. I really enjoy photographing flowers. Working with macro flower photography fits well into this challenge. So when we were recently out running errands, I made sure to pick up a flower to photograph while we were at the store. Macro flower photography allows me to stay inside on… Read More

Day 3 of the one photo a day challenge. Today I turned my attention to one of the succulent plants I have been growing over the last few years. For the last few years I have been trying to keep plants alive for more than one year. I have been putting them outside in warmer seasons and bringing them inside in colder seasons. This succulent plant has been one of the ones… Read More

Last time I talked about how I use the Nikon 300mm lens in my photography. (Photo Gear | 300mm | New York) While I love using the long lens to photograph wildlife from a distance. This time around I am going to swing to the opposite end of the spectrum. I want to talk about how I get close up and personal with subjects. Some of my favorite Subjects are flowers and… Read More

I really like the photographs I am able to create with these tools. It doesn’t mean that there are never times I wish I had other tools available to me. For my wildlife photography I mostly use a 300mm lens with… Read More

Spring always brings a great variety of photographic opportunities. I always enjoy photographing spring flowers as they begin to bloom. Spring has only recently arrived on the calendar and even more recently has it finally begun to feel like Spring here in upstate, NY. Where we live is at a slightly higher elevation than most of the surrounding area so Spring arrives even later at my house.

Starting work on a new project. For a while I have had the idea of a project percolating in my mind. I wanted to create a photography project that documents the process of creating art. We all see artwork and marvel at its existence, but I think it is difficult to think about what went into the process of brining that artwork into existence. I recently reached out to some area artists… Read More

I love photography and I love trying to make it a part of every aspect of my life. Most photography is going out and finding subjects to photograph but for me photography is about photographing life and more importantly photographing my life. I want to photograph the things I do and the things that I love and share them with the world. Some aspects of life are a bit more challenging to… Read More

So, in case I didn’t spend enough time on my feet today I decided to go out and see if I could photograph some Spring birding action. I have been to some local spots that are normally good birding lately, not for birding or photography but for photography, and I did notice quite few birds particularly migratory birds that move through our area in early Spring and then move on to their… Read More
