Still Working. . .


Time is getting short.  Nevertheless, I continue to work.

 

Justice


The excess of our world.  This one took quite a bit of time and effort to put together.   Draft product.  Tentative title:  “One of Every Colour.”

Catching up, Responding to Challenges


A large post.  Possibly my largest post.  Certainly my most complex or diverse posting.  Therefore, I’ll provide a bit of guidance for you–hopefully it will make things easier for you to understand / navigate.

Four sections:  Fireworks, Market, Textures, Walkabout.

“Fireworks” is a “WIP,” or “work in progress.”  Each year, I head out to see if I can improve my firework photography.  Because the 4th of July only rolls around once a year, I only really can apply the general skills / knowledge acquired over the past year to those challenging conditions.

“Market” is my attempt to respond to my first challenge by a professional photographer to “get out” and about with my camera.

“Textures” is my attempt to respond to my second challenge by the same professional photographer to create unique textures to use when layering photographs.

“Walkabout.”  Should be pretty obvious.  Some macro, some wildlife photos.

Fireworks.  Some of the best fireworks photos I’ve taken.

Market.  Target of opportunity.  I wish I’d had more time.

Textures.  Collected over two days.  A decent beginning–I might do more of this.

Walkabout.  Trying to get creative during the weekend hiatus.

Second Technique / Second Movement


Enough with staples.  For now.

Working more with this technique because no photo turns out the same time way twice.  A friend visited during the weekend and he wanted to see the technique–to see how I created these.  After seeing me work, he wanted to help.  So these shots contain a slight progression of technique.

Maybe I need to get around to giving these titles.
