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.

Idle.


Idle.  Bored.  Kept inside because of the weather.

Stepped outside to watch some clouds pass by and found an excuse to pull out the camera.

Three macro images.   I’m just keeping the shutter moving.
