Cabo Wabo Anyone?

Friday, August 28th, 2009

I maintain that Cabo Wabo tequila is the best I have ever had. It’s great for cooking, shooting and, apparently, photographing. If you’ve never tried it, do yourself a favor and get a bottle. It’s worth it!

CHECK this out

I got this check in the mail. They spent 44 cents to send me 37. Not to mention the gas I would waste going to the bank to deal with it. I can’t decide if I should frame it or actually go into the bank with a smile and ask to cash it.

Warhol Bronc

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

I’ve been in kind of a tie dyed, hippie mood of late so here is another psychedelic creation.  The bronc is actually a photograph of a black, iron sculpture that hangs on my wall.  The rest is the magic of photoshop.

When The Moon Is In The 7th House

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

For Project 365:  This is a picture of the moon from tonight that I took and tweaked in Lightroom and Photoshop. I cloned it into several layers and then warped each layer individually.  In the background is a pattern on red that was subjected to a radial blur.

Feed Me, Seymour!

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Taking pictures for Project 365 and I noticed this weird growth out of a tree on the ranch.  It looks like a big mouth that is eating insects…or something.

Cows, for some reason

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Today for project 365, I shot some cows in a field a couple of miles away.  Why am I shooting cows?  I have no idea.

Water splash from nothing

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

I’ve been wanting to photograph water droplets and the like for a while but haven’t had much success.  Today, I was perusing the internet and playing with photoshop and found out how to make a water splash from scratch.  Here is my third attempt.  Considering I just started this an hour or so ago, I think it looks pretty realistic.  With practice, I think I can make it look better.  The first photo is the splash that was created in photoshop (No outside photos).  The second is the same picture with a strawberry (real photograph) added in so it looks like something is actually moving the water.

Maybe sometime I’ll post a ‘how to’ on this, but it would take me a while to type it out and get screen captures so, not today.

White Knuckle Ranch – Non-Motocross Pictures

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

I went out to White Knuckle Ranch Motocross Track this morning to shoot the Re-Grand Opening under new management.  I took a bunch of motocross shots and a few that weren’t.  I decided to do the few that weren’t first.
