Evening Sky

Really strange looking sky yesterday evening. In one direction everything had a yellow cast, but dark clouds on the horizon were a deep blue.

Beautiful Fall Evening

Great evening out...sunset peeking through the dark clouds lighting up the fall colors ... and the only camera I had on me was my iPhone. I did snap these two shots with it, though.

Fisheye Fun

Playing with the new 10-16 mm lens we got at work.

My Helper

A shot of Kenzie from when she was helping me with a photo shoot this past weekend at the park. He primary duties were to carry and move light stands, and entertain the baby in the photos, and she did a great job.

One flash sitting about a foot below figure pointed straight up at ceiling, which provides the ambient and some hits him to give the dramatic uplighting.

We have five new kittens at our house. Here are two of them. If anyone out there wants a cute kitten, let me know.

Close up of mixer attachment...color balance set to incandescent to give the blue tint.

The Violin Maker

A photo I shot a while back for work. It's of Bruce Brown, an Ironton, Ohio, man who had heart surgery, but is doing great and is back in his wood shop making violins. Pretty simple lighting setup, two Alien Bees units, one camera left through a large softbox moved in close to the subject and a second camera right pointed at the violins in the background with a 10-degree honeycomb grid.

Open Water Swim

Kenzie took part in her first open water swim Saturday morning at Cave Run Lake. She swam the 1 mile option, which involved two laps of swimming around a buoy that was a quarter mile from the shore. The buoy is the two round red things floating way off in the distance in the second photo.

First Day of Fifth Grade

Kenzie started at a new school this morning, which I think made her mother more nervous than it did her.

We went kayaking with Kenzie's swim coach at Grayson Lake on Saturday. Love the bright colors of the kayaks against the darker water.

Kmart is not very Green

Some companies like Starbucks are trying to reduce waste by asking if you want a paper receipt, but Kmart seems to be going the opposite direction. I went in today and bought four items, when the checkout girl hands me this huge wad of paper that is my receipt...turns out, it's actually five sheets of paper, that includes four coupons with some huge paragraph explaining each, and my actual receipt for my four items is about 18 inches long. Sheesh.

Cannon Fire

A cannon is fired during a colonial times demonstration Friday afternoon at Carter Caves State Park near Olive Hill, Ky.

Cave HDR

Or at least a natural bridge HDR...this is blended from three shots to get detail in both the heavy shadow and daylight areas. You can click on the photo to get a much bigger image to see some of the detail. BTW, this was taken today at Carter Caves State Park near Olive Hill, Ky.
