Shadows in the Cactus Patch

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

Wandered in and around the cactus patch today (yes, in shorts and flip flops) and took some shots.

The Ring In The Book – The Heart Of The Matter

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

Here’s an interesting experiment that I decided to try.

Ring In Book

Ring In Book - Blue Tint

I had seen this done before, but I discovered that with some adjusting of the position of the light, you could not only get the heart in the ring shadow but a heart in the larger light. This photo and the one that follows have almost no post processing done with the exception of a crop and some color tone, but the heart light is right out of the camera. I used a large hand held work light that you can get at any hardware store, like Home Depot. The light was shined almost directly behind the ring at a relatively high angle. The camera was stopped down 2 full stops to black out the areas outside the heart.

Ring In Book - Orange Tint


This one is the same photo as above, but I took it into photoshop and added the flare on the crown of the ring. Not sure if I like it better or not, but I decided to include it for reference. What do y’all think?

Long Exposures

Friday, November 27th, 2009

I’ve been wanting to try so long exposure photography for a while now so I set my camera to manual 30 second exposure, grabbed the tripod and set out on the ranch in the dark.

Since there were stars out and some interesting clouds, I started with the night sky.  This is facing North (approx) on the front of the property.

Northern Night Sky


This one is a tree in the moonlight.  Again, a 30 second exposure.  Once I began to process it, I did a duo-tone process that seemed to turn out rather well.

Light, Shadow and Strings

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

I saw some great shadow coming through the blinds on to my old acoustic guitar so I grabbed the camera and started shooting.
