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…

Sheltered

Sheltered

This is from Thailand I shot a few years ago. No idea why I didn’t publish it. Likely because I had no idea how edit it. I shot this in the Bali Hai area when I first went there on a motorbike. It was the first time I had gotten the nerve up to ride a bike there. All previous trips I relied on public transportation. With this trip I was with my friend who was an experienced rider. We…

Sunset Over The Caloosahatchee River

Sunset Over The Caloosahatchee River

One of the unpublished from the archives. I shot this in 2015 I believe when I still had my Olympus EM1 gear. I have sense moved on to full frame Sony and Nikon but I still have some great images. This image was part of my great learning curve for doing HDR. I would shoot a ridiculous 7 exposures. I had no idea what the hell I was doing with HDR and I never realized that the more images you…

The Back Road

The Back Road

I shot this while I was hiking around Antietam Battlefield. There was such a maze of roads and back roads throughout the park you never knew if you were on public land or private land. I’m sure the people who live there are used to people wandering around unsure. I was on the main trail just shooting down this road. I’ll be honest and say I’m not 100% sure about this image. It’s a bit bright. This is a byproduct…

Golden Stalks

Golden Stalks

Shot this along the fence closing in a field in Sharpsburg, Maryland. I was walking along the road and saw the light coming in on the dead stalks against the fence and figured I take the picture. To be honest, I’m not thrilled with the image completely. The sky is a funky color. I can’t color correct it and when I stripped it out didn’t look right either. So I left it. I cropped most of it out with the goal…

Tiny Bubbles

Tiny Bubbles

I shot these while hiking Great Falls last year. I was on the Maryland side and I was deep off trail. Nothing says fun while lugging a tripod with a Nikon D810 over your shoulder while not trying to fall into the churning water. There are two images here. Basically the same image just shot portrait and landscape. I could not figure out which version I liked better. When I hit the final save it’s the landscape version but I…

Night Bean

Night Bean

It should be pointed out that I took many a photo of the “bean” in Millennium Park in Chicago. I used to feel bad about about publishing images that are similar but each one is different. Light changes, mood changes when editing and so on. Spread them out and you get a lot of usable images that would otherwise never see the light of day. I edited this photo nearly a month ago. Sometimes I do edits when the mood…

Warm Forest Path

Warm Forest Path

I seem to be into paths and roads this week. I took this one at Brookside Gardens when I was hiking around the giant lake I discovered while I was there on my last visit. I just liked the light coming through the trees. This image is one of those I like just because of the light but it’s really not the greatest photo ever. I shot it with my Sony RX10 which I genuinely love as a camera but…

The Bright Path

The Bright Path

I’ll be honest and say I was going to name this the shining path but I believe that is a Communist militant organization from Peru so bright path it is! This was taken at Antietam National Battlefield along some path leading up toward the watch down your see in the distance. The sun was up by that point and it was a nice day out. When I was walking up the path I saw this and thought it would be a…
