Hanging with the birds. It’s hard to soar like an eagle when you’re stuck around terns.
I AM LISTENING TO YOU I EVEN HAVE THIS AWESOME RECORDER THING.
I just wanted to get something to drink from the fridge, but here I find a camera staring back at me. Maybe it’s the CIA? GoPro Hero Black 5. Fisheye is Fun.
My daily photography project is really helping me see light, angles, composition, and color all in a new angle. I used to be rather afraid of color. I always felt that my eyes didn’t quite see the world in the same as everyone else, but as I finally dipped into painting with acrylics, watercolors, and the lights in photography, the world has gradually become a more colorful and interesting place. A hallway or nook suddenly becomes more interesting with the right mood lighting, camera angle, Continue reading →
The troops are ready to do battle….with my liver.
“Just working on my bike in this dramatically lit corner. Don’t you do maintenance like this too?” Special thanks to TheBrianHanley for being my model and allowing the bike to nearly fall on his face.

“Are you still there?” “Hello?” “Can you hear me now?” I’ve been hard at work at the office so this moment of photography with my mini sound booth was a nice escape for a few minutes.
Oops. Lesson learned. 12mm wide angle isn’t that great for in-vehicle shots.

Returning to the den of Metal Monsters, we find them asleep once more. “We need wilderness whether or not we ever set foot in it. We need a refuge even though we may never need to go there… We need the possibility of escape as surely as we need hope.” -Edward Abbey
Drive-thru birding at Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge. We stayed inside the car the entire time, but was saw so many birds during this visit. Now that I have a 600mm lens, I can finally zoom in and get an eye-full of all the avian glory. Literally, thousands of birds, mostly waterfowl but also included dozens of hawks, eagles, kestrels, red-wing blackbirds, and many others I was unable to identify. Two of the most interesting-to-me birds we saw today were a pair of Bald Eagles, which were Continue reading →
I plead with the light to do my command, but Blinky likes it harsh while Blinky II lights things softened up. Lumens! I knew thee well. Self portraits are only fun when something silly is being done. A flash, a tripod, and willingness to look stupid in an office hallway are a good place to start. Gear used: Camera http://amzn.to/2kKOW8q Tripod http://amzn.to/2lWvlal Flashes: http://amzn.to/2lWt6ng
