One photo a day challenge: Day 337. I have really become interested in astrophotography and photographing the the night sky. I went through an online video course on astrophotography and I am in the process of completing another online training course on astrophotography. So I have been wanting to go outside and play around with it and see if it is actually anything I enjoy before investing too much more time or… Read More

I always enjoy time spent exploring the Adirondack region. Usually when I visit the Adirondacks that means I am going to spend a lot of time out hiking. Hopefully climbing some mountains. Circling trails around lakes. Or visiting other beautiful scenery on foot. This year out adventures were a little bit different. We went camping as usual. Camping in the Adirondacks is hard to beat. But instead of our campsite being home… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 318. Spent some time exploring the the woods around our house today. I just walked through the woods with no particular intent. Wondering. Looking. Observing. Trying to find anything that looked interesting to train my lens on. Looking for any last bits of autumn colors left on leaves and trees. There wasn’t much color on leave, but I found some. But the most colorful sight in… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 317. During what was mostly a rainy and gloomy day the sun peaked out for just a moment. This was my cue. Time to make the photos. I wanted to get outside and see if any of the few flowers still out there were blooming at all this deep into fall. There were still a few blossoms on one perennial. And there were also a few… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 316. Often when I photograph flowers I try to isolate a single flower blossom. Or even more specific I try to isolate a single part of the flower blossom. This is especially true when I am photographing flowers at home. Today I wanted to try something different. It was the perfect timing so I had to go for it now. I just happen to have a… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 312. There are some new blossoms on the flowers I brought inside. One pink flower. Another plant with a red flower. Setting up my indoor lighting options. Using a white background to help create nice clean look. The white background also helps reflect more light onto the subject. I repositioned the lighting and the background to get the composition that I wanted. I took a variety… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 309. Sometimes trying to find that one image in the woods is a challenge. I didn’t see anything that was jumping out to me. There were no little interesting pieces of nature calling ot to me for photos. But there was this light. And there was this shaggy moss hanging off a tree trunk. The Sunlight was streaming in. Backlighting the moss. No light on the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 308. Continuing to explore the flower that remain blooming now that I have moved them inside. Today I wanted to focus on these teeny tiny flowers that grow on short wispy stems. These flowers grow in clumps and clusters. The fact that these individual flower blossoms are tiny will become evident. Normally when I get as close as I can to a flower with my macro… Read More

One phot a day challenge: Day 306. Cold weather is coming to my part of upstate, New York. Overnight lows below freezing for the rest of the week. I am moving a bunch of my annuals inside. I am going to try to keep my annuals alive indoors for as long as I can. Hopefully some of them will at least survive and go dormant only to return next spring. Part of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 302. Working with more autumn themed subjects. Seasonal colors. A little more warm tones today. Corn Cob. Red seasonally colored kernels. I really like all the subtle shades of red along the ear of corn. Photographed with a shallow depth of field using my macro lens. Lit from one side with my Lume Cube lights.
