Its incredible how life tends to intertwine and overlap itself!
At church tonight, we were going over perspective, and how just a simple shift can make all the difference in our lives and in our faith. Well, on the way home I decided to take a bit of a scenic route, being I had the cam with me. I had always seen these rocks stacked in the yard of a house down this particular way home, and Ive been telling myself I need to get out here to shoot them for the blog. I had driven by them many times in the past, and never noticed the wagon wheels that surrounded this rock garden until today. Continue reading
I cant tell you how much Ive anticipated these shots while waiting for this roll of film to get developed this month!! Earlier this month, wanting to experiment with some other films, I picked up a few rolls of the highly praised ilford black and white film.
Its an incredibly different experience shooting completely black and white, as Im sure a good few of you know from shooting film back in the day. All of a sudden this vibrantly colorful world is broken down to simple shape, gesture’s and light. Before, I could pick and choose which would be which, I could even experiment in Lightroom and try both if I wanted, but not this time. Scenes that were full of life due to their bold energetic hues, were reduced to boring story-less ruble that no longer carried a tune worth playing. Continue reading
Im always on the lookout for unique ways to display everyday objects. Some times that means just capturing a portion of the subject to give it more of an abstract feel. When I can mix various shapes and texture into the scenes, its all the better.
Personally I enjoy these high contrast abstract shots. They are meant to make the mind search to recognize what it may be when initially observed, and at times leave some space for the imagination to wander.
Its been a while since Ive photographed my lovely Cutco flatware. I wanted to see how well the iphone would do to help me create one of my black and white pieces that I love to do of this wonderful product. Id say it held up to the challenge quite well
By the way we’ve noticed that the comment section on the site appears to be broken momentarily. I apologize to everyone who has tried to leave comments on the last couple of post but couldn’t. We are currently working on a solution, however in the mean time feel free to give it a shot again, as we wont know when its fixed until comments start coming through again haha.
Thanks for all of your patience as we iron out the kinks on the still warm out of the oven site design.
Some days you just have to figure out how to take your shots while on the go. All three of these were taken down the home decor aisle at our local Super Store (like Walmart).

I love the detail shots! Those shots that give you enough information to fill in the picture in your head, but not too much to bore you with over explanation. Sometimes it makes for a simple display of a complex scene or character, or in this case it takes a simple scene and simplifies it even further.

This old beauty showed up at the park, during our cook out this weekend, with a pack of High school prom goers. They came to the park to get some pics taken (By a simple point and shoot, I about offered up my services hahaa), and while they were off shooting around the park I got a chance to grab a few shots of the ol’ Ford before they needed it for their own shooting.
She was in extraordinary condition and all the wheels and tires looked like they were right off the show room floor making for some crisp photographs. The nice hard light washed out the white walls giving such great contrast to an already contrasting color scheme.
This is one of those instances where always having your camera with you pays off.

Im super excited about how these turned out. Im normally apposed to shooting other artist work, unless I can just capture a small element in a unique way making it my own. Which I feel is what I was able to do here. I love the complete graphic nature of these scenes, with the beautiful gear and the harsh structured shadows. Truly a fantastic blend of subject and light. I have a feeling these will be on my office wall soon

Its been a while since I’ve posted a black and white street shot, as most of my attention lately has been on certain color palettes. Well I finally came across a shot where I thought a black and white would do it most justice and here it is.
I had originally intended to post some film shots I had taken within the last week, however for whatever reason they didn’t copy to my computer properly and I sent the cd with the originals on it off with my friend who I have been letting use my old AE-1 in our recent shots. So until the return of the cd and pics… Continue reading

For todays photo journey, I decided to be a bit adventurous and explore uncharted territories, which really means driving around aimlessly looking for a scene to invoke some sort of excitement within. Its a bit of a gamble when racing the sunlight looking for a new scene in an area you are completely unfamiliar with. Continue reading
