So, here it is part 2

With less than two hours to go till the new year I shall get the rest of my favorites from this year posted.  Again let see if we can do a better job of showing up here now and then next year.

The ambitious plan for the up coming year is to take a photo of a flower a week and not just some, random throwing together at the last minute BS!!!

When I get into my photography, I really get into it!  Unfortunately, when I allow myself to get side tracked, man do I get side tracked!!!

Of course there is the other side of the coin and that is I am not getting any younger and if this dream of doing this for more than a hobby is ever going to come to fruition, (love that word) I had better get serious or just sell my camera!!!

Well, enough of this caring on!!!  Have a Happy New Year!!  May it be filled with happiness an abundant prosperity!!!  Oh, and here's the rest of the photos...

So that's it in a nut shell.  Hope you enjoy them and PLEASE drop me a line, let me know what you think, what you feel or just say Hi!!!

It's Been Awhile... part 1

It's been along time since I addressed this page.  Guess it's time to give it another go.  Expectations are a little more reasonable now though.  Won't be shooting for the one a day routine but more like one a week.  This is also my hope for shooting flowers this year. Once a week for a total of 52 flowers.  Should make for a nice book at the end of the year.  Speaking of end of the year, as this one comes it's end I guess I should share this years photos that I have liked the most.  So here they are!  Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed capturing their beauty.

 So, after going through hundreds upon hundreds of photos I came up with two dozen floral photos that I really liked.  This is just half of them.  I will get the rest up tomorrow and then we can start a new year and many new journeys...

Play on light...

Tried something different today.  Added a new element to my photography today.  I used a much smaller light source combined with an extended exposure time.  Still did a little adjusting in Lightroom and PS5, but I kind of like the look and feel.

Still much to learn...

Do we ever stop learning?

I hope not!

Perhaps, still a little dark, but I didn't want to blow out the lighter sections.  Looks a lot better the bigger it is.
