Geared Up

ISO100 50mm f/5.6 1/100sec

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 🙂

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…

The search for primary colors continue into the back alleys of downtown 🙂

Overlapping Circles

I made a comment a few days ago about how I’ve been told by my friends that I often say out loud “Wow thats interesting”, while on my photo walks and even during every day tasks and errands. I feel one of the main reasons I was drawn to photography is because my life has consisted of a journey searching for that which makes me say just that, “Wow thats interesting” or “Thats amazing”.

Which to turn?

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…

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 🙂
