Brady Hood II

AS I said in My Brady Bunch Hood I find my neighborhood photographically interesting.  Here is another group of images that I took to the extreme.                                 JSH

The Art of Photography

Below are two photographs.  One is the original image as it was captured.  The second one is the image I saw in my mind's eye.  I arrived in Monterey after driving 18 hours non-stop from Denver and was exploring the area when I came across this palm plant.  I'm not sure you would call it...

Monterey Kelp

This is a series that I have not completed and actually a bit lost on what direction to take it.  I was mesmerized by the floating kelp when I looked over the edge of the dock.  It was really cool.  The water gently moved the kelp in a most hypnotic way.        ... Continue Reading →

Monterey Structures

I had a blast in Monterey!  I am so pleased with the variety of photographs, from contemporary color, to classic B&W, to abstract photography.  After I visited the Weston Gallery in Carmel-by-the-Sea I recall my early days of photographing with B&W film.  The internet, not to mention computers were not around.  I studied the books...

Summer Camp Waterfront

I attended this camp in the early 1970s.  I recently had the pleasure of sharing the camp experience with my son.  He/We had a blast! Normally at home I wake up early (4:00AM) each day and while at camp it was no different.  I captured these images while the camp was still asleep. The camp's... Continue Reading →

Camp Log Lodge

I attended this camp in the early 1970s as a camper.  Recently I had the pleasure of sharing the camp experience with my son.  He/we had a blast! Normally at home I wake up early (4:00AM) each day and while at camp it was no different.  I captured these images while the camp was still... Continue Reading →

What Makes for a Stronger Composition I

This will be a series of audio posts where I discuss the compositions of seven images from my very first one-man photography show at Kent State University in 1981.  I'll talk about what makes for a stronger image.  How we read an image.  How cropping your image is as important as when the image was...

Sands in Monterey

I have yet another grouping of images I captured while I was in Monterey CA.  As I was walking back from capturing some surf images, I noticed a section of sand with some great natural flow patterns.  Very graceful and organic.                     JSH

My Brady Bunch Hood

I think most photographers are compelled to capture images that interests them, if not why photograph it?  I live in a neighborhood that was developed in the late 1970's.  I call it the Brady Bunch Hood.  The following are images I captured on a recent weekend.  It had rained lightly before dinner and the air...

Clouds 2001

In 2001 I had a daily commute of 50 minutes to go 50 miles.  Not bad when you compare it to others who commute 50 minutes to go half that distance.   On my way home during the winters I saw some great sunsets and clouds that were lit-up by the setting sun.  I took these... Continue Reading →

Organic – Revised 2019

When I left Hollywood and Elmi Graphics in 1988 I landed in Kent, Ohio.  I was making soft images at the time using various techniques.  One of those techniques was pin-hole photography, which I call Organic.  I called it Organic because there was nothing artificial, man-made, between the scene and the film. Get it!?  It... Continue Reading →
