Back to the old home area

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

When Brooke and I were shooting at the location near where I grew up it was chilly and we ran out of time before we got to all the possible locations there.  So, of course, I’ve gone back.  In fact, the place is so rich in photo opportunities and constantly changing with the seasons that […]

Yes, Kentucky, there is a waterfall.  And it’s a beautiful one.  But, our visit there was not without a few complications.  First, when we finally had made our way down the trail and arrived at the waterfall that was our destination, we found it was not free of other people.  In fact, we were pretty […]

The Root of Everything

Friday, June 24th, 2011

This trail to the waterfall in Kentucky was a really fine trail.  Lots of places to shoot before we even got to the waterfall.  I really liked these roots beside the trail.  This was taken right before we encountered the giant bug on the trail.  We’ll get to some photos of the waterfall soon, I […]

Something Fishy

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Would you know this photo was taken with my fisheye lens if I didn’t tell you?  Maybe if you look very closely, but I don’t think most viewers would notice.  I like that.  I’m pretty pleased with that lens because the fisheye effect is not overwhelming and I can often put together a photo that […]

Back To The Woods

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Here is Ikaros Ex again.  This was taken on the second day of my Kentucky trip as we were hiking to a waterfall.  This was on the trail where we later encountered the rattlesnake.  It was about this time when we saw that huge bug on the trail.  It was still way too hot, approaching […]

Hiding From The Kentucky Sun

Monday, June 13th, 2011

As I mentioned earlier, I spent a couple days last week down in Kentucky shooting with an old friend, Ikaros Ex.  This was the first time we have been able to do a real outdoor shoot together, though we have done a few photos in the past.  We started the first day at her place in […]

Kata D-3N1-30; 3 in 1 Sling Backpack Review

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Reviewing equipment is not something I do a lot on this blog, but my new Kata D-3N1-30 has inspired me to write about it.  I bought this backpack because I wanted something with a little more non-photo space than the Lowepro Fastpack 250 that I’ve been using for several years.  I also thought it would […]

Nude Kentucky Wildlife

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

I’ve spent the past couple days off in the wilds of Kentucky taking a few photos.  It was hot.  I had a few encounters of a kind I’ve not had before.  It was hot.  I went to a lovely waterfall.  It was hot.  I also shot at a friend’s home in a secluded place in […]

The Way Herb Sees It

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

Usually any photos you see here on my blog are taken by me.  But Herb Ascherman has generously given me permission to make an exception and post some of his photos here.  Above is one of Herb’s photos of Brooke taken in Herb’s studio with his 8×10 view camera.  Take a look at that pose.  […]

A Different Way To Photograph

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

When Brooke was here visiting I drove her up to Cleveland so she could work with a friend of mine, Herb Ascherman.  Herb is a fine photographer with quite an international reputation.  And he works in the classic manner, using black and white film in an 8×10 view camera and making his prints using the […]
