Over The Roofs

Over The Roofs

This is actually just a simple camera test on my Nikon D810. I had some issues on my last shoot and I was like something isn’t right. Turns out my lens hood got knocked and it didn’t show until I blew up the images. Luckily I could just crop it out and move on. There isn’t anything special about this image other than it’s my normal view from my balcony. I played around with it just because I wanted to…

SR-71 Blackbird From Behind

SR-71 Blackbird From Behind

I like this plane. Plus I’m still in flux with my new place and an easy edit for me so bear with me while I settle into my new place. One of the joys of living in Thailand is a crap electrical system. My place is older so there aren’t many outlets so the stringing together of power strips that shoot sparks every time you plug something new into them gives you a cheerful feeling of oh shit. I have…

Real or Reflected

Real or Reflected

Shot this in Luray caverns. I haven’t went back and edited the series like I intended because it’s such a challenge with the light, color correction and so many other things going on with the images. Just a quick post today because I am actually setting up all my stuff. I moved to a new place here in Thailand and it will be home for the next 12 months. I haven’t unpacked all my stuff since June 5th when I…

Spring Gazebo

Spring Gazebo

This was shot at Brookside Gardens. There are a few of these gazebos around the gardens but they are never used. If you are looking for a quiet place then I suggest using one as they are never busy. This was shot last year when I first got my Nikon D810. I like to play the game of randomly clicking on my photo library and see what comes up. I have so many images that I never processed that this…

Underground – Part 1

Underground – Part 1

This was shot in Luray Caverns when I went out there a few months back. It seemed like something to do and a bit of a photographic challenge for myself. I’ll be honest and tell you I skipped the guide as I was focused on taking photos so don’t know much about the place. I was never with the group so I didn’t hear much of the history of the place.They are photographer friendly allowing flash and tripods but I…

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…

Sunrise On A Gazebo

Sunrise On A Gazebo

I took two different shots of the gazebo at Antietam. One from the front and this one. Considering the light I guess I didn’t take them that far apart. If there was a hell for photo editing this image is likely involved. I have edited this image at least 10 times. This is finally the version I settled on. Part of the problem was the light and how the camera metered it. It did some really funky things and I…

Road To Yonder

Road To Yonder

Title came from a comic I read as a kid. Guy walks up to two other guys and asks for directions. One of the men answers and and says ‘It’s yonder’. The man asking for direction leaves. The other man who didn’t talk then asks the man that gave directions if he actually knew where he sent the other man. He replied, ‘Always wondered where yonder is’. This isn’t the most fabulous image I ever took in my life. In…

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

Dawn Over Silent Cannon

This is another one from Antietam Battlefield. Was on the field near the visitor’s center with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance and the sun just starting to rise. This is another example of an image that was meant for HDR that just wasn’t going to work. HDR just creates too many variables into the image that make it difficult to get a solid, finish image. There are little things that drive me nuts with objects not aligning. Weird…
