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 🙂

Mystery of the Sandals

ISO800 50mm f/6.3 1/60sec

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… Read more…

Quotography Guest Post: Finding time for projects

Our Co-Host Shannon wanted to share a few words and ideas on how she goes about creating and finding time for projects like our quotography collab.

Finding time for creative projects

I truly believe that if something is important to you, you will make time for it.  That is the nature of priorities.  This goes for anything you are passionate about – your family, your friendships, your significant other, your hobbies….or for those work-a-holics out there, your career.

Obviously, there are only so many hours in a day, no matter how many times I wish for more.  I spend a lot of my brain cells on creating a time-budget, so that I know when and where things will fit into my day.  I also keep a mental note of what things can be moved if need be, to make room for life as it crops up.  It all stems from the philosophy of knowing what is urgent versus what is important, a hard personal lesson I learned a few years back. (For me, that lesson went hand in hand with remembering to tell the people in your life that you appreciate them!) Read more…

Gentle Color Textures

ISO1600 50mm f/6.3 1/160sec

I had the pleasure of enjoying a photo walk with a good photog friend of mine today. We have been talking about making it happen for some time now and finally got our chance today. I would write a comparison of our styles, or what Ive learned from the experience with her, but she is rather secretive with her photography, in fact I have never seen any of her work haha. Regardless, we had a fun time out shooting, and surprisingly the city was a pretty happenin place for a tuesday night.

As we made our way through the streets and alleyways I found myself more drawn to texture tonight then anything else. I love the muted pastel tones that were poping up from the soft overcast sky.

All in all a very enjoyable evening, and even got to enjoy dinner at the Cinco De Mayo restaurant I’ve been meaning to go to all year. As I’ve mentioned in the past its always fun shooting with friends, especially when those friends know their way around the camera 🙂

Smoke Signals

ISO100 27mm f/4.5 1/200sec

It has arrived!!

As many of you probably seen on the Nick Exposed Facebook Page I recently received my new speedlite and radio triggers in the mail. I’ve been talking about getting some flash units to play with, and finally put in my order last week. Its probably a bit cliche to shoot some smoke photography right after getting a flash, but at the same time its sooo much fun 🙂  Read more…

Matching Colors

Hangin Around

ISO100 50mm f/3.2 1/50sec

I owe this shot to my friend Kelly, if it weren’t for his scouting eye I would have walked past this scene, leaving it unnoticed, as I answered an incoming call during our photowalk today. Thats the beauty of enjoying the company of friends during the days photographic adventures, you always have a backup set of eyes 🙂 Thanks Man!
