Coffee Wagon

ISO200 20mm f/5.6 1/200sec

Ahhhh, carnival time by the beach! You know summer is just about here as the ferris wheels and other rides erect overlooking the city/beach. Its quite incredible, a town (Holland MI) about a half hour from me is plastered with all sorts of festivities. No matter where you go in the city there are Elephant Ear booths, kids running around with Cotton Candy (my fav!) with the parents to follow running after their sugar induced preteens that are off to the next ride or attraction.  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.

I know I’ve said it before, but I absolutely love this time of year!! As a car guy summer time weather is much appreciated after a long winter season, especially now that I have a new means of celebrating and capturing the beauty of these wonderful automobiles. Read more…

Grandpa’s Workshop

ISO800 21mm f/3.5 1/40sec

This is an image I’ve seen in my head for some time now. I’ve been wanting to create it and wanting to create it, and finally had my opportunity this weekend.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this Easter the family took a trip out to my Grandma’s house for the day. Before we took off I ventured down into Grandpa’s shop to capture this one scene. I knew exactly what I was going for, as I tried this shot once before on our last visit but didn’t like the end results. Ive been extremely picky on this shot as I wanted to ensure it did the scene and idea justice. Read more…

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.

Apollo Capsule

ISO400 18mm f/11 1/320sec

I’ve been out all weekend away from the computer so I now have to play catch up with the last few days posts. This weekend has been absolutely gorgeous starting off with a beautiful Friday! I took a trip out to the local museum to capture this shot of the space time capsule displayed out front. It worked out beautifully with the repeated space theme on the banners left up from last weeks Mars exhibit. Read more…

Through the wall

ISO 1600 50mm f/4 1/40sec

It never ceases to amaze me how much there is to explore downtown. So many times the thought of “I wonder where this road will take me” has led to some fun discoveries new to my eyes. Today that is exactly what happened! Read more…
