What catches the eye

It was only after I had downloaded photos from this weekend that I realized I had taken pictures of a stained glass window from the inside and outside. Historic mansions such as this one in Spokane, Washington are great photo ops. The outside shot combines the stained glass window and the... Sign in to see full entry.

Just for fun

Really, most photos should be fun but sometimes the serious business of composing, focusing, settings and making sure the lens cap is off just get in the way. For this shot I used my tripod and the remote trigger accessory since I was to be one of the subjects in the shot. I'm the one with the goofy... Sign in to see full entry.

The nighttime is the right time...

Night shots intrigue me. They are not easy to do since you are working with low light but then they don't have to be perfect, it's more a matter of nuance, I guess. When I found myself in downtown Spokane recently, it was just past sunset and the mixture of ambient light and street lighting looked... Sign in to see full entry.

The toughest shot of all

Forget settings, lenses and all that technical stuff. The hardest shot to manage is the group shot. The larger the group, the more likely you will get someone with their eyes closed, yawning, scratching something they shouldn’t or maybe even making an obscene gesture. You know, pointing at their...

Play with the settings

Automatic settings on digital cameras are wonderful, for most shots. As I was mowing the lawn, I thought a photo of the sprinkler would be interesting but I couldn’t decide which way I wanted to go. For the first shot, I wanted to try catch the drops in mid-flight. This requires a fast shutter... Sign in to see full entry.

Patience

A problem with events that draw crowds is the crowds. People tend to stand around and gawk and after all that's what they come to do. But for the photographer, some rube standing gaped mouthed in front of a vintage airplane can ruin the shot. I had to wait a long time as first one, then another... Sign in to see full entry.

Even more history

What better way to highlight the open cockpit era of flight than to have a photo of those open cockpits? I took 74 shots the day of the fly in. Mostly to assure that I would get a few, even if by accident. However there are some shots that cannot be had merely by coincidence. I knew that if I was in... Sign in to see full entry.

It's history you see

The only Boeing 40 C in existence and it's still flying. So it was I had a chance to see this airplane up close and personal. Our local airport has it's annual fly-in and breakfast the first weekend of August every year. Many antique and unusual planes visit on that day and I enjoy the chance to...
