Saturday, December 3, marks the 24th annual Lawrence Old Fashioned Christmas Parade. This unique event draws thousands to Mass Street in downtown Lawrence each year to experience the Midwest’s only exclusively horse-drawn parade.
Turtles are a great subject to photograph. First of all, they’re slow.
“…For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.”
This sidewalk image was taken on a lunch-break walk; it’s always good to carry your camera! The low angle is meant to make the viewer feel as if they are on the ground.
I’m super excited for tomorrow’s pre-release of On1 Photo’s new photo processing software, On1 Photo RAW! It’s the first all-new raw image processor in years and it’s built from the ground up to utilize the power of today’s modern graphics card. You don’t need to be a pro to have a blast with this software; it’s easy to use and the creative possibilities are endless. Just about every one of my photos goes through a round of On1 Effects, which is a part of On1 Photo RAW.
Saturday, October 1, 2016 was the day of Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk. This was my first real photowalk and I was happy to share it with my wife. From the site:
Each year, photographers around the world gather on the same day to explore, photograph, share photos with one another, make new friends, and be a part of a great cause.
I really enjoy long-exposure photography. Particularly, I’ve really been into Alexey Titarenko‘s work. He does amazing things with his camera. Using a long exposure will keep still objects in sharp focus, which contrasts nicely with moving objects that will appear out of focus. You can get really creative with this type of photography.
Another image from my recent trip to Boston. This was taken outside of Fenway Park, the oldest major league ballpark in the country that is currently in use. I really like the effect of long exposures with people and I often times use a neutral density filter to extend the exposure time. An ND filter is like a pair of sunglasses for your lens.
This lonely flower, found at Grintner Farms’ sunflower field, was naked, tall and alone. It stood out and wanted to be photographed. Obviously, the leaves were shed for a reason and his twin was cut down before him, to be taken home as a souvenir, no doubt. The short lives of Grintner Farm’s sunflowers are merciless and cruel.
