One photo a day challenge: Day 153. Lately I have been experimenting with using more artificial lighting in my photography. I have really enjoyed the flexibility the Lume Cube lights I now have in my tool kit have afforded me. I have used these lights to make photographing in low lighting inside the house possible. The lights have also made photographing outside at night possible. And I have used these lights as… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 152. Today I was trying to get things done around the house that I hadn’t been able to due to the weather. That meant mowing the lawn. The grass had gotten pretty high and wild looking after all the rain we have had put the kibosh on getting caught up on the mowing shores. I slowly tried to chew threw the grass with the push mower….

One photo a day challenge: Day 151. Today was another fun day of birding at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. There are so many great reasons to visit Montezuma. There are many great birding sights that await you when you arrive. However, often there is no way to know what you will actually see. But, showing up this time of year often ensures you will at least see the Purple Martins. There is… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 150. It’s late. Getting tired. Must be time for bed. Time for dogs to go lie in bed. Going to sleep now. Have a nice night.

One photo a day challenge: Day 149. Cosmos are some of my favorite flowers to photograph. I love the texture of the petals. They are so soft and silky looking. Then there is the coarse nature of the center of the flower. Especially as the flower matures. Each segment of the flower’s center sprouts on its own. There is always the contrast between the center that is yellow and the petals that… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 148. I have always shoed away from buying new gadgets or gear for my photography. I only bought gear that I had a plan for how I would actually use it. Even if it was something I wouldn’t use all the time. I want to have a plan for all the tools in my bag. A use case. I want to know under what circumstances I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 147. After a day being out and about creating photography I kept my photography at home today. Yesterday my main goal was to focus ion the animal kingdom as photography subjects. Today I brought the focus back to the flowers on our deck. It was getting late evening. The sun was getting low. I was studying the flowers. Looking to see how the light was hitting… Read More

Lately I have done most of my bird watching from my backyard. There’s nothing wrong with back yard bird watching. I always find it enjoyable. But I never get to see the variety of birds that I would if I made a trip to a specific location to dedicate some time to birding. Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge It is always fun to get online and keep up with what other people are… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 146. Today I spent most of the day birding at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. I had such a fun time. So many fun bird sightings. I took way too many photographs. I will have plenty to share with you all in the future. I typically go to Montezuma hoping to see birds I associate mostly with wetlands, like ducks or wading birds. I especially enjoy seeing… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 145. Today I started teaching a cell phone photography course at 171 Cedar Arts in Corning. So my plan for photography today was to get to Corning early and sit in the park and wait to see what would happen. I took my entire camera bag to the park to sit for an hour before I was going to go teach class. I didn’t know what… Read More
