First Look Photo: After the Rain

June 7, 2017

Sometimes the best pictures happen right after a rain storm, so don’t put away the camera when it rains.

Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.

Photo Friday: Dramatic Cloud Formations

March 24, 2017

I think I’ve said it before, but I love cloud formations.  In a recent unit in my school they talked about stockpiling images of clouds for use as backgrounds of architecture photography, if the sky is uneventful.  This is what today’s shot is for.

First Look Photo: The Odd Duck

March 22, 2017

I found this white duck among other ducks yesterday.  I thought it was just another type of duck, but the closer I looked at the markings, especially on the head, and after looking at my book, I realized it was a white female mallard duck.  It’s a rare sighting to be sure, but albinos happen in most species, and it’s still fun to see.

Photo Friday: No Egrets

September 9, 2016

If I were to have any regrets about my photography, it would be not having my camera at a great photo moment.  To be honest, those times have happened in the past.

Today’s shot was one I was definitely ready for.  I was on my way home, from work, when I saw a snowy egret hunting for fish.  I loved the way the ripples in the water’s current played around its feet.

Photo Friday: Welcome to my Church

April 1, 2016

Through the years, one question that pops up, occasionally, is “If you’re a Christian, why don’t you go to church?” My answer to that is pretty simple.  Every time I walk out my front door, into nature, I’m in my church.

No stained glass window, or cathederal, no matter how elaborate, can come close to the beauty of nature.  I don’t worship nature, but I do appreciate the creation of it, and that is what I want to share with my photography.

I hope you enjoy today’s sample.

Taking it to the streets.

December 3, 2012

Normally, I’m a nature photographer, but starting today I’ll be going on street excursions, to do a little street photography.  It suddenly made sense that if I want a chance at pro-photography, I’m going to have to vary it up a bit.  Not only that, I’m starting work on a video series, on my YouTube channel in January on photography for people with a meager budget.  I’ve done street photography before, but this is the first time I was truly serious about it, and not just using it to test equipment.

I will now post some pictures, and I hope you will like them, and tell me what you think about them.  Don’t forget, I need honesty, as I’m getting ready to do this on a regular basis.

I just really liked the perspective.

This was taken in Longfellow square.

What struck me about this shot was the animated conversation.  There seemed to be a story there.

I would love to know if there are ways to improve these, and I do listen to all comments.

If I could ask you for just one more thing, I’m looking for photo challenges to use for my videos.  Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thank you and enjoy

It’s been a while since I posted one of my photos, but I took this one yesterday, and it was so special to me I felt the need to post it.  I hope you all enjoy it.  I decided it would look better in Black and white.
