One photo a day challenge: Day 347. Today I thought I would check in on some of the indoor plants I have growing in the basement. I have a little container garden going trying to keep the plants alive until next spring. Today I wanted to focus on the succulents that I have growing down in the basement. I like the look of the multiple stalks with the bulbous protrusions of this… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 314. Being in the midst of a one photo a day challenge I am always on the lookout for interesting photography subjects. During the time of year when this often means more indoor photography I am even more alert for subjects when I am in a store. Picking up a new item to photograph is always fun. Today at the store I saw a plant I… 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 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.

One photo a day challenge: Day 292. I like the challenge of taking a relatively common item and photographing it so close up that is almost become completely abstract. Photograph an object in a way that it becomes almost unrecognizable as what it really is. I am trying to photograph items that might seem common or boring in a way that they become interesting once again. Trying to bring new life to… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 224. Ok. Back to the plan for today. Getting back on track with photographing the newly acquired flowers today. The plant I photographed today is a really cool Sedum that was flowering at the nursery when I decided to buy it. This particular plant is the Thundercloud, Stonecrop variety. I really like these types of plants because they have these thicker stockier stems. They feel like… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 185. Over the years I have planted many varieties of flowers at our house. More often than not I have not been successful in having the perennials return in following years. But there has been one flower that has reliably returned year after year. Maybe I just don’t pay enough attention to where and how to plant the flowers. So then they fail to regrow the… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 179. We had a little bit of rain today. The rain always creates nice photography opportunities for plants. This was the perfect time to get the macro lens out and take some close up photographs. I am planning to plant these plants in our flower garden. That location will bot be as easy to access for macro photographs. I am glad this confluence of events allowed… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 124. Spring continues to progress up here on the hill where we live. Living up at a little bit of elevation has a strange effect on spring for us. When we drive down off our hill we see grass greening, plants sprouting, leaves unfurling and flowers blossoming. We see all these signs of spring happening down in town. But for us up on the hill it… Read More
