The Pagoda

The Pagoda

I have shot this pagoda before but it was usually a fast shot because it was constantly busy. This time there were maybe 10 people in the entire park so I got the shot I have been wanting. The problem was the light was horrible. So after my editing block last night the epiphany hit me on how to stack the images to get the sky not to be so blown out. All I needed to do was duplicate the…

Old Tyme Memories

Old Tyme Memories

I won’t go into the details of the number of images I didn’t publish before I finally called time and went with this one. I have been playing in Photoshop and pushing myself to master some of the more advanced topics. I was playing with all sorts of stuff and every time I get to where I wanted it I find something I hated and scrap the image. This image is one I could find myself living with. Yes, there…

The Pool into the Pond

The Pool into the Pond

Not having a lot of time to edit a series right now so consider this a taste of things to come provided I have time to edit more than one image at a time. I shot this on my often neglected 50mm that is a fine lens, I just am glutton for choice with lenses. The micro 4/3 system went from a few lenses to having pretty much anything you need for a job. I won’t even talk about my…

Getting Buggy

Getting Buggy

While I was out shooting I ran into these two. While the honey bee wasn’t that interested in a portrait the moth/butterfly thing was. So I gladly snapped them. I like to thank my macro lens for being 1:1. I also like to thank the various other bugs in the area, in particular the bees for being used to idiots with cameras shoving them into foliage and not stinging the crap out of me. Enjoy

Back To My Roots

Back To My Roots

I have studiously avoided flowers for some time now. I have mentioned before, not a fan. I am good at shooting them but I really don’t like them. So I went to Meadowlark Gardens¬†when I got out of work early to do some shooting on my double secret new camera and brought along my EM1 and the macro lens. Meadowlark Garden’s was the first place I ever shoot a DSLR a long time ago. I remember being so excited walking…

Stained Class

Stained Class

Nothing like slipping in a Judas Priest reference! Of course, this is really stained glass but one can’t pass up naming a post like that, its like Houses of the Holy. You just have to do it. Plus with me being in the gallery it was likely bringing the class way down. I do like stained glass and I have shot it a lot but have never been satisfied enough to share it. There was always something wrong with it…

Flesh to Alabaster

Flesh to Alabaster

Points if you know there the title came from. Think big 80’s band and the lyric came from a oft covered song. I was in Washington DC as I have shown and on my wanderings I saw that the Corcoran Gallery¬†said free admission I wandered in for a peak and something to drink. So to cool off from being outside I had a nice beer and proceeded to wander the gallery. I asked one of the security guards if I…

Jefferson on the Potomac

Jefferson on the Potomac

I didn’t really like the image of the Jefferson Memorial I posted yesterday. Knowing I had another shot from my Ricoh GR it seemed time to edit it. I knew I could knock it out fairly quickly since I am on a bit of a time crunch. For inquiring minds, the sky really did look like that and all I did was bring the color to what I saw. Was some weird clouds going on when I was shooting. Enjoy.

Monumental

Monumental

So if you follow me on Instgram you know I was in Washington DC on Saturday. It may seem strange, but I hate DC. This isn’t a political rant, I live near it and grew up with it 15-30 minutes away. That means, I’m a DC native as anyone who lives in DC suburbs of Virginia or Maryland considered a native. That means, most of us are sensible and avoid the city like the plague because of traffic and this…
