What A Year

December 5, 2012

After nearly 14 months away from this blog, I am digging it back up. So much has changed for me as a photographer in the last year. My trusty D5000 has been damaged, but not destroyed. I repaired it with cheap ebay parts, but it’s not the camera it used to be. That being said, […]

Its’ been a while since my last post.  This is partly due to a lack of motivation and a lack of anything interesting to post.  I’ve been doing a lot of studying and not much posting.  Anyway, my faithful D5000 has gotten a well deserved rest and this past weekend, it was game on.  I […]

On a recent trip to the International Water Lily Collection in San Angelo, I was able to grab some really great shots.  Unfortunately, in their quest to inform the public on the names of the different waterlilies, there are name tags on little poles all over the place.  This makes for some very difficult photo […]

Quest for “Real” HDR Continued

After a great comment by @hdrtist on my last version of the “Stormy Sunflower“, I went back to the drawing board.  Since the original shot was cropped so tightly, I had to change things up a bit.  I kept the sunflower as it was and concentrated on the background.  I tried to manipulate the stormy […]
