Winter in Wisconsin + Flickr Explore

February 26, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

It's been an odd winter this year. We ended up with a beautiful snowfall though Friday morning. Luckily we had a 2 hour delay so I was able to get out and get a few shots. One of those turned into a Flickr Explore for the day.  Here's a few of my favorites:

New Blog... Again

February 17, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I once again have a new blog. Why? Because ZenFolio (my hosting company) now integrates it into their web pages. I have been waiting for this feature for a long time and am quite excited. It's pretty rough so far, but I'm looking forward to see what it's going to evolve into. I kind of wish they would've figured out a way to do Wordpress integration however.

I’ve had this idea in my mind for quite some time. While shopping at Wal-Mart the other day I came across some fresh coffee beans. I picked up a small amount and began to execute the shot.  Shot with a single flash (SB-600 at 1/4 power with shoot through umbrella) camera right. Here’s the results:

Jr High Basketball Photos

I photographed the JR High team photos this week for the yearbook. It seems like girls are always willing to get their photo taken, especially middle schoolers. This gave me an opportunity to try an effect I hadn’t done before. They were very patient (since they had to wait around for their game to start anyway) and liked the effect, even before seeing the post processing.
