I photographed these beauties on my morning walk today. Enjoy!
We (Wolfgang, David and I) photographed early at the Merced Game Refuge. Our goal was to photograph spider webs at sunrise. Enjoy!
This is a fun project. Fill a balloon with water and pop it. I used two flashes, one to illuminate my hand and the other from behind to illuminate the water. Have fun!
Currently many photographers are chasing Fall colors in California. I found some great dogwood colors at Calaveras State Park in Central California. The large Sequoia trees work great as a backdrop.
Enjoy and keep on photographing!
Photography has the power to reflect the situation we are living in. Currently COVID 19 is determining our lives in many ways. One key factor is isolation in order to prevent spreading the virus. Let’s not forget that isolation can lead to loneliness and depression.
Stay healthy and reach out to a person In isolation. That is the message of this image!
What do you feel looking at this image? I created it to provoke!
Due to heavy smoke the air quality was not good in Yosemite Valley. On the other side the smokey haze created a soft light which I took advantage off photographing Fall colors. The dogwood leaves have started to change colors and I was very happy with this image.
During Fall the light changes dramatically in Central California. The change in seasons opens up the possibility to bring out earthen color tones a lot more. The contrasts are softer and the mood of the subject changes also. I tried to capture all this in this image of a toadstool Enjoy!
Due to the bad air quality we were forced to stay inside for a few days. We used the opportunity to look through some old records and shred as many as possible. Then I had the idea to photograph them on a light box.
I photographed a Rose from my yard several times. First I created a “low key stack” of the Rose on the left hand side. Combined several exposures in layers and masking techniques I creates a beautiful backlit image on a black background. Then I created a group of different images. I moved the rose during the exposure to create a motion blur. I picked a blurred image and used it as part of my background. The sharp and blurred rose give the image an interesting contrast.
