"Confidence Building" session

nikon D500, Sigma 105 1.4, flashpoint xplor 600 with softbox. these are part of a confidence building session i just started offering. I started offering these sessions mainly for mothers who don't have time for themselves due to spending most of their time with the kids, but i've found it can literally apply to anyone. I talk to them about...

February Tango

One of the attractions of a 500 mm lens is the ability to pick out a detail from a distance. The first is a feeder on a neighbor's deck. The second is behind my other neighbor's house, separating his yard from the Tango. Finally, all roads lead to a soccer ball.

Vacancy

The sign proclaims that there is a vacancy at the mid-century modern Teddy Bear Motel and Restaurant on old highway U.S.19 between Bryson City and Cherokee North Carolina. For many years folks visiting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park found that (like Teddy Bear says) "Life's Good" at the Teddy Bear.

From the Top

When I do my inks (on my profile) the views of those are from the side. If you could look straight down at the surface, this is what you'd see!

There is some grain issue here that I am going to run through a de-noise program as soon as I get it.

Feedback Welcome!

Minimal Lanscape

It was raining on Saturday morning. A brief window opened up early in the morning so I ran down to the the beach hoping to catch just this - rain in the distance with some open sky. The dark version is closer to what it really looked like but i wanted to be able to see the boat so I lightened it up.

Feedback welcome!

Just joined and saying 'Hi'...

Pele's Well

There had been a storm most of the day on the west side of the Big Island of Hawaii. An hour before sunset I saw a clearing on the horizon line. I decided to go out and shoot, and to my luck it was great sunset. I've only been on the island for a year so this was my first time at this spot.

Bracketed Exposure and blended in Photoshop....

Seascape with Cloud Question

It was raining on Saturday morning. A brief window opened up early in the morning so I ran down to the the beach hoping to catch just this - rain in the distance with some open sky. There were a lot of "God rays" so i thought I'd try a composition like Chris has posted (minimal water - mostly sky). Of course, I forgot his advise about tipping...

Patterns

It was nearing the end of the day when I came across this interesting building. The light looked good as it was casting hard shadows. Without hesitation I knew exactly what the composition would be. This was probably one of the quickest compositions I've been able to create.

I would love to have a lot of discussion in this post. I'll...

Underfoot #3 #4

These are the third and fourth in the Underfoot series. As mentioned yesterday, twenty of these will be exhibited at Lauralynn White's Contemporary Art Gallery in Chautauqua, New York from mid-June through Labor Day 2019. Some of these are more abstract than some others. I'll be there in late July for a "Meet the Artist" event.
