Elements of Design

In general, diagnal dominant lines in photos make for more interesting pictures, so with some everyday objects, like a set of metal blinds such as the ones above, some interest can be added by simply tilting the camera angle. The pull string running the opposite direction also helps, too, I think.

How Sweet It Is

The enormous pile of holiday food we got at our office is starting to dwindle down.. There's just some plain popcorn, a basket of fruit that's looking less appealing every day and a few sugar cookies, like the one above. Up close, the sugar crystals look enormous. That's gotta be good for the teeth.

What time you got?

My office roommate has a binary clock that he got for Christmas. He had to explain to me how to read the thing ... in the above photo, it's 1:19:47 P.M. Does anyone else know how this works? It's actually pretty neat once you learn how.

Yet even more sky

Okay, I'm renewing my efforts to start photographing something every day to post here. It may end up being something on my desk a lot of days, but as an early New Year's resolution, I'm going to try to work on this blog more.

Here's yet another in the sky series from my morning commute to work. This shot was pure luck. I just held the camera up and snapped a shot through my windshield.

Your Bright Baby Blues

Sorry I haven't posted much lately, but I've been pretty busy between my regular job, holiday stuff, personal stuff I'd rather not even think about and some occasional Christmas photos ... one of which is here. This was from a recent shoot, and it's not really a planned shot. The little girl was just kind of running around the studio space and I happened to catch her looking right at me.
