DOF: The Grain Plain

Flora is not my only macro love affair.  I also care deeply for wood grain.  Weathered wood, aged by the elements, grayed by exposure and the passing of time.  There is a story in every grain.  A detail and experience from a beautiful yesterday.  a pure natural beauty.  The fine detail and contrast of xylem carries impact and presence of days gone by...

Ladybugs for Avery

I was looking Avery's photoblog and she posted some ladybugs.  I took that as curious happenstance as I myself snapped off some frames this afternoon of a ladybug in my Gerbera Daisies.  This is what I saw.  Thanks Avery for the inspiration.  (scope out her photoblog too   )

Renegades and Panty Raids

Here we are again back with King Jimmy James. This is in a series of promotional portraits I did for the musicians.  When taking portrait you are aware of the product and it's use.  We worked here to capture some rockstar attitude and finesse with an edge.  Jimmy crashes the skins with monkey arms... and that s a GREAT THING!

Iced Tea Please

Sitting at dinner I found myself looking at layers of ice and liquid from a different perspective.  It is amazing how light is colored, bent and transformed be the simplest material.  Capturing these changes in light is challenge is some photography.  Sometimes it works, other times you just have to drink it.

Play With Your Food

Ever wonder how they make food look so good in commercial and advertisements?  There are times you get into a meal that looks to good to be true.  This one also tasted to good to be true.
