It Aint Gonna Happen

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Well, that “fall into winter” photo that I wanted to shoot isn’t going to happen. I have a model scheduled for tomorrow, and the weather is supposed to be cooperative, so I thought I might still be able to pull it off, despite the wind and rain we’ve had causing things to progress beyond the […]

Playing Ball on Running Water

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

That Zen saying is one I think about when it comes to working outdoors and trying to make art. You can plan all you want, but Mother Nature is going to dictate what you can and cannot do and your success will be determined by how well you can adapt to what you find when […]

2010 Calendars

Friday, November 20th, 2009

I’ve finally gotten around to publishing a new calendar for 2010. “The Figure In Nature 2010” has almost all new photos, with one or two oldies thrown it for nostalgia’s sake. There’s a smaller, less expensive version here. You can order the calendars here, or just use the link at the right. I’ve also republished […]

Rainy Day

Monday, November 16th, 2009

It rained all day Saturday. This is what the farm looked like through the rain and fog. I’m back home. Drove all day Sunday and half a day today. Lots of work to do at the studio tomorrow to get ready for some dancers coming in for studio photos. Now that I’m home I’ll have […]

OK…here are two more versions of “my” farmhouse. The one below was shot this morning in the pre-sunrise morning twilight. The one above a bit later just after the sun rose above the Green Mountains. I guess these photos are another of the many signs that I’m officially old. It seems it’s only old photographers […]

I’m in Vermont for a family visit. When I come up here I’ve been photographing this one farm for several years in various light and weather. There’s something about the way this farmhouse looks that just draws me to it. I’ve posted some of my earlier photos of it on here before. The above photo […]

Art Walk

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

Friday was the “First Friday” Art Walk in Dayton. It was also the night for the closing reception for the Creative Soul of Dayton art show where I had a couple prints on display. With that show ending my prints needed to be picked up either right after the closing reception on Friday or sometime […]

Waterfall, that is. After Angie and I did our Fall Colors shot we went to a nearby waterfall where I’ve shot a number of times. In the past something has always prevented me from getting the shot I was after. Sometimes the light was wrong. The waterfall faces south, so if there is any direct […]

Fall Colors

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

I’ve been trying to get something with the fall colors this year, but the leaves just haven’t cooperated around here. They pretty much turned brown and fell off the trees. The colorful days were few. On my trip up to Detroit and Chicago I saw fantastic colors on the trees, but I wasn’t shooting on […]
