Backyard 2018 pt2

Below are the images that first caught my eye in my backyard.  As I mentioned in the previous blog, it was late afternoon after we have came back from the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado.  I'm not sure why I was drawn the these plants but I was. It has taken me several weeks to... Continue Reading →

Composition Lesson – August Lake 1990

“August Lake” was about that quiet early morning hours in northeastern Ohio when fog raises from the warm lake water as the summer nights begin to cool foreshadowing autumn and the end of summer.  I was looking back through my image files and came across the original chrome (aka slide) of “August Lake”.  I first...

Calabasas 1988

A year before I left LA in 1988, I had the opportunity to photograph some landscapes in Calabasas, CA west of the city.  It was an early summer morning and the fog was lingering.  The fog gave a great quality of light and one I had not photographed before.  I loved it. Interestingly, a year... Continue Reading →

Now What? Confinement.

Have you ever had a dream?  A dream of achieving a goal in your personal life or career, and then found that you accomplished it.  Or perhaps you realized the dream was more about the journey and not the destination, and now the journey is over.  But for what ever the reason, you come to...

Birthday Drive 2018

I decided to get out of Denver and drive the roads I first saw 40 years ago as I was nearing my twenty-first birthday.  I had left college in January of that year because they would not allow me to take courses in my chosen major of Radio & TV.  You see, in order to... Continue Reading →

Montana Road Trip II (part 2)

I woke up the following morning in Sheridan Wyoming.  The previous evening I spent two hours backtracking up to Casper to get on I-25 which was the faster route to Glacier although now it would only save me two hours instead of four off the route I had first headed-out on.  After a quick hotel...

Montana Road Trip II (part 1)

Over the first weekend of October 2018, I took a road trip from Denver, Colorado to Glacier National Park.  The dates for this trip were first set for the end of September but job and life required that I postpone it a couple of weeks.  Prior to leaving, I checked the weather maps and saw...

My First Camera

All through high school I was envious of those kids who had a "real" camera, a 35mm SLR.  The summer after I graduated my mission was to buy an SLR.  I saved every penny I could.  I decided to forgo concerts and other activities in order to have enough money to buy an SLR.  Finally...

6 Days and 3000 Miles in 12 Photos

  On a mid-June morning in Oceanside CA, I began filming my first full-length documentary. For the next 6 days I shot videos and stills as four women and twelve crew members raced across America.   Hours after the start the racer sees her first sunset.   Bikes and rider loaded in the follow vehicle,...

A Lifelong Pursuit of Photography

I began my photography the summer I graduated from The Gow School, a school that specialized in teaching dyslexics reading and spelling techniques.  I saved all summer long to buy my first 35mm SLR film camera.  The year was 1976 long before digital cameras were invented. During the summer of 1978 after I left Ashland... Continue Reading →

Rock Moss Review by LensCulture

Rock Moss is a series of 14 images I took while visiting Glacier National Park in July 2018. It was a rainy day when I came across areas that had exposed rock with contrasting green vegetation. It reminded me of my Loveland Pass 2014 series of lichens on the continental divide and a close-up photo... Continue Reading →

Glacier 2018

These are a few more images I captured on my July Road Trip. The days were cloudy with rain off-and-on throughout the days.  It made for some great images but you would never know it by just looking through the lens.  This is where composition comes into play.  If the image is not well composed...

Cross Country 2012

In Opportunities Rarely Come Twice, I wrote about seizing opportunities whenever you can.  In this case is was filming / photographing a bicycle team's attempt at breaking a cross country record for the fastest time to ride across America.  Along with producing my first full length film, the opportunity provided for great still photographs.  Below...
