Which to turn?

ISO400 50mm f/5.6 1/400sec

My fascination for these fire dept. spouts has yet to run dry. Im not sure why I find them so interesting, but over the last few months have run into many variations on the design and continue to capture the scenes. They tend to be accompanied by some lovely textures and colors which is always an added plus 🙂

“Working out back”

Boy do I have a good deal of work ahead of me in order to catch up on posts haha. This has been a repeating trend over the last few weeks, but it looks like I will be back on schedule now as travel has settled down for the next few months and work should be back to a steady pace. Its all part of the adventure right 🙂

Here is a brief series from last weeks shooting before I took off for Chicago. Enjoy! Read more…

“After a long days work”

One of the tricks I like to do in order to spice up the daily photo walk and keep it fresh is to shoot themed mini series for the day. Its amazing once you think about it at how many opportunities there are to shoot one idea in multiple ways, whether it be geometry, color, composition based there are endless possibilities that will push your creative observation to the next level.

Holy Entrance

ISO200 18mm f/11 1/30sec

This Saturday a good friend of mine and I took a day trip out to Kalamazoo, a city a little over an hour away from our town of Grand Rapids. The idea was to tour an area that was completely unfamiliar to either one of us, without the use of maps or gps, just relying on our instincts to guide us to and through the town as we embarked on this adventurous day.

Graphic Shadows

ISO400 50mm f/5.6 1/1000sec

Again its time to play a bit of catch up with daily exposures. Lately I’ve had a sudden rise of work come through the study, which is always a great thing to have happen, unless your trying to keep up on a daily photo blog haha.

Being in graphic design I cant help but to love interestingly graphic scenes like this. I find it interesting how most the shadows through out have a mildly soft edge yet the main element projects a very crisp clean round shadow. I walk by this building just about every time I am downtown, and have acquired a good number of photos over the months in various weather conditions. Its one of those scenes thats simple yet appealing to me and my design focused mind. Read more…
