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…

Form From Shadows

Form From Shadows

I’m about to get a bit abstract with these images. They all have shadows in them and I tried to include the original shape as much as possible to give a sense where the shadow was being cast from. I shot all these on my Canon S100 as I have been putting it through its paces. One of the things I always liked about Canon’s compact cameras in that the spot metering really gives you control over the light and…

Shadows of Modernity

Shadows of Modernity

The mystery camera returns! I left the file names as a hint this time but I still stripped the EXIF data. This series was much tougher to edit. The mystery camera has real problems in the blue channel and there is very little tonality to play with in the shadows. The falloff is either all or nothing. Noise was going to happen regardless of what I did and I had to play with these files more than I ever wanted…

Lake of Fire

Lake of Fire

I get that this image may not be that appealing to everyone but I like it. When I started the edit process the orange hues were there but the more I played with it the more they came out and I really liked the effect and what it was doing to the water. With the algae and the shadows it just made the photo interesting to me. Sunday’s being a low traffic day I figure I’d slip this rather abstract…

Escape To The Sky

Escape To The Sky

I like fire escapes. It’s just not something I grew up with. The same with tall buildings. If you live near DC nothing until recently was built above 10 stories or so. In Washington DC itself no building can be taller then the Capitol. So with that in mind, fire escapes were rare. So when I see them I gravitate towards them because they cast some cool shadows and add drama to the image (least in my mind). These two…

The Everyday – Part I

The Everyday – Part I

I get that this isn’t going to be in everyone’s tastes but I wanted to shoot the stuff I was seeing every day while I was out and about or staying at the hotel I was at. A few different cameras were used to do this and it was about tones and shadows. In part 2 I’ll switch it to color. I think sometimes as photographers that we look for the cool, the different, the whatever but if you just…

Shadow Stepping

Shadow Stepping

I have been all over the place this week with photos and I have shot at least 500-700 images since last Sunday but I had a side project that required me to leave earlier than I normally venture forth and I had the Sigma DP1 with me.  This is just the stairs leading to the second floor of my condo building and I saw the sun and the shadows and took the shot.  This is the type of stuff the…

Crystal Shadows with a Splash of Red

Crystal Shadows with a Splash of Red

I am feeling in a abstract mood.  I really like how the light played off the crystals and cast unique shadows.  When I saw the image in color and noticed the red purse/bag (Hey I’m a guy like I know the difference!) and I knew when I converted the image to black and white it would remain in color just to give the image an additional focal point.  There are so many textures going on in this image along with…
