Sitting here in the dog days of winter, I was searching for new toy to put in my bag of tricks. I didn’t want to spend much coming out of the holidays but I felt the need to buy something. I thought about about software. I considered a new point-and-shoot to fill the gap between [...]

Another bit of experimenting with the Lensbaby. Just wait until I get the Fisheye optic which should arrive today or tomorrow!
This is another image made after the weekend snowfall but later in the morning than the previous two blog postings (which were made [...]
This is another technique that I picked up over the weekend from Tony Sweet. It is the digital equivalent of the slide sandwich where two images (one sharp and in focus and the other soft and out of focus) are superimposed on one another. In this digital equivalent, I am using a single sharply focused [...]
Last winter I was working on a series of rose images in which I tried to capture the emotions/feelings connoted by different color roses. A red rose connotes passion/love while a white rose connotes innocence/purity. Last year’s image were, for the most part, macro/close-up images of single roses.
While I was at the market yesterday [...]

Another Aster from my early Sunday morning walk along my local creek. In amongst the many Calico Asters along the path, I would spot a Heath Aster every now and then. I decided that with the Heath Asters I would focus in on a [...]

I must admit that I like it when a plan comes together. Yesterday was pretty much of a washout. When it wasn’t raining, it looking like it would any minute. So for the most part, we just hung around the house [...]
While I was out yesterday, I came across a field full of Fleabane. I have made numerous close-up/macro images of individual flowers so I didn’t feel like heading into that direction again. Then again, the individual flowers are so plain that shooting a field of them seemed, for lack of a better term, ordinary. [...]

… from our Saturday morning trip to Jacobsburg State Park here in Pennsylvania. In this particular case, I set up the camera directly above the flower and shot straight down at it so you don’t see a stem. It [...]

I know I posted a similar image just a couple of weeks back but I am really fascinated with how these infrared images of evergreens and cones are turning out. The IR-conversion seems to do something almost magical to the cones. And with the bright sky [...]

Made this image a fews days ago but it got lost in the HDR IR shenanigans of the past few days.
I used a simple set up comprised of my Canon 30D with the Sigma 150mm macro lens; tripod-mounted.
Hope you enjoy the image.
