Around The Yard

Around The Yard

This set of images is really all about light for the most part. However, they were all shot around my Mom’s house in Fort Myers, Florida. I really never left her front or back yards. Well, one shot was technically on the neighbors but he doesn’t have a fence so it counts! Plus you can see my Mom’s fence so clearly it was around the yard. These images were shot on 2 cameras. The Sony A7ii using a 16-25mm 4.0…

Around The Bench

Around The Bench

I shot this at Brookside Gardens at some point but I honestly don’t remember when. Could have been Spring or Summer I really have no idea anymore. To be honest this was a compromise photo to fill out the week. I am working on a series that is an absolute nightmare to edit and I just hit the wall with it so I stopped and stepped away. I just started to go through the archives until I found something I…

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part Two

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part Two

I’ll finish up the set of flowers for Valentine’s Day. Normally I like to break these things up but my schedule has been hectic and these are already edited and ready to go so I’m going with it. This set is actually when I first started to shoot the US Botanic Garden Conservatory. When I bring stuff into Photoshop it goes from the last photo I brought in to the first. So I work backwards. I was too lazy to…

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part One

Flowers For Valentine’s Day – Part One

I had a request for flowers. It turns out I had recently shot some while I went on an adventure to the US Botanic Garden Conservatory. The entire reason I went to Botanic Garden Conservatory was to test out a couple lenses, a camera, and a flash I own. I had purchased a Sigma 24-70 2.8 and I had a Sigma 50mm macro to test. So I put them on a recently acquired Sony A7ii along with a Newer Flash…

Winter Flowers

Winter Flowers

When I was in Florida I was informed that I would take pictures of flowers in a garden. I like to think I fulfilled my obligation with these images. I only took my Sony RX10 with me to Florida as it was a quick trip. It was also a test of my new mobile workflow which means just a smaller external SSD drive and a Lightroom library to dump images to. When I return home I then import the images into…

Flower Squares – Part Two

Flower Squares – Part Two

Here are the second half of the flowers I published yesterday. These were all taken in Portland, Oregon at the public Rose Garden. If it wasn’t for people I worked with wanting to get there I doubt I would have ever taken the photos. There is a bit of a story behind editing these images. It almost didn’t happen. My hands were hurting from lugging around my tripod and Nikon D810 earlier in the day. While it’s not super cold,…

Flower Squares – Part One

Flower Squares – Part One

I have been getting requests for flowers from my Mom almost daily. Since she reads and comments daily I’ll humor her not for just one day but two! The whole flower thing started when I was a new at photography. I had no real clue what I was doing. If I was outside it was flowers. If I was inside it was my cat. Over the years my photography got better and I realized I hated flowers because I learned…

Two Paths

Two Paths

As you read this I’ll be on a plane waiting to head to Portland, Oregon for the next few days then I head off to Mexico for a few more days before flying home. I have done a lot of pre-editing to stay somewhat ahead of schedule before I go to Mexico since that will be for personal versus my Portland trip which will be for work. I am planning on shooting while in Portland rain or shine. Taking my…

Tulips Anyone?

Tulips Anyone?

I had a request for some flowers so I figured why not get out and shoot some while the weather was reasonable. Little did I know I would venture out to a large regional park that was celebrating an extended Earth Day. The hippie drumming circle was only mildly annoying. I did think of South Park and how to save the town they had to play Slayer to get rid of the hippie infestation. It was tempting considering I have Slayer’s Repentless…

Blossoms on Branches

Blossoms on Branches

Think I’ll be wrapping up the various Cherry Blossom stuff with a few more images. There aren’t many left and I have a backlog of newer stuff that I have shot that I need to move on to. This was not an easy shot to get regardless of how it looks. The issue was the wind and at the time I didn’t think to just increase the shutter speed to freeze it. So live nad learn. I was freezing by…
