If one is good, more are better

The thing about nature is it doesn't exist in a vacuum, unless of course you are on the moon. But I wasn't, I was on a hillside trail at a small lake in Norheast Washington State. The preceding post featured a single flower taken very close up. As we climbed back up the trail to the cabin, it... Sign in to see full entry.

Flashing in broad daylight

Most of the time we think of flash as a tool for photos at night or dark places. But it can be handy in the daytime too. This Narcissus along side the trail has a charm all its own so I got as close as I could and snapped away. It was later in the day and starting to cloud up. The shot isn't too bad...

The pieces make the puzzle

Sometimes it isn't necessary, or even desireable to take a photo of the whole car. In the case of a car show, it can be difficult to get a clear shot without people in the way. Sometimes one wants to catch a glimpse of what made the cars, or the times they represent, memorable. This shot of a GTO... Sign in to see full entry.

Car shots

Car shows are a natural if you like photography as well as, well obviously, cars. One thing one must have is patience, that is if you don't want to have people in your car photo. My advice, show up early or try to get an early pass into the show. Later in the day might be good too, especially if... Sign in to see full entry.

First, photography is my hobby so I am always asking myself, "how can I make the picture say what I want it to?" Last weekend I went to a "show & shine" where all kinds of cars were on display in the downtown area of Kennewick Washington. One car in particular evoked memories of what made the times...

Flash forward

Well, not the new TV series, but why an accessory flash might be nice. The first photo of our cat Zoey in her favorite spot in the new cat tree is cute, but I got the dreaded "red" eye only as so often happens with cats, it was green eye. This usually happens when one uses the built in pop-up flash... Sign in to see full entry.

Time and place

The next series of photos I’d like to share illustrate one of the challenges facing photographers, what can I do to make this shot better? This has nothing to do with f-stops, shutter speeds or any of the camera specific details. It has everything to do with composition, time of day, framing and the... Sign in to see full entry.

A shot in the dark

Most of us put our cameras away at night, but that is when you can get some really great shots. So, lets up the ante and say we are driving along the freeway at night, well we aren't really driving, our wife is. If you think talking on the cell phone and driving is distracting, then don't ever try... Sign in to see full entry.

Photographic thoughts

There are many things to think about when taking photographs. What framing should one use? Is there enough light? Should I use a tripod? And as this series of photos I took just tonight shows, framing can affect exposure. These were taken on the program setting which allowed me to capture the fading... Sign in to see full entry.

Create illusions

This is from a few years ago, I had done the house up with lights and wanted a photo. By crouching down in the driveway, I was able to exaggerate the slope of the front lawn. It also eliminated the mountain the the background which was throwing the exposure off. It wasn't totally dark yet which gave... Sign in to see full entry.
