Soup!? I guess this is as exciting as it gets. Sigh.

Others are out shooting cathedrals, lions up close, but me…cans of soup at the grocery store. I am still living with my 50mm and have managed to irritate most of my work colleagues. My friends and family are just used to it. I thought the colors of the soup cans merited a shot. Usually I […]

Amy certainly has colorful labels! No wonder you found them worthy of a picture. Seems to me you already did the “lions up close” thing, didn’t you? ‘Course, this one makes me hungry!! 🙂

A long night. Pictures not so great but….

I learned a lot about my camera and me. First, it’s cold and dark but not a stormy night. Sky was clear with occasional wisps of high cirrus clouds to shoot through. I couldn’t remember the settings to have a timed release and I don’t have a shutter cord so…  Of course, I thought that […]

You’re such a good Papa!!! Great snaps!! I’ll have to see if I can send you the ones that my buddy Vicki took! Her cat got her up at 2AM (in Oklahoma) and the girl took some good shots with a simple camera! Sorry you were up all night!! Love ya!

It’s Fall and, of course, I’m sick

I think that all of the leaves will be off the trees by the weekend. We’ve had rain, wind and weird temperatures–it’s warm!! And my fall allergies are in full throttle. Whine. I haven’t really been out but looked out the back door and took one quick snap that sort of sums up the mood. […]

Looks like the stuff on my front porch! 🙂 The leaves don’t stay pretty very long, do they? Then everything is brown. I hate winter.

And so at last, my bride poses!

She is a great model but I still have a ton of things to learn. I used PS to get things to even out a little since my lights are a bit inconsistent. It was fun to do and Diane is a natural. I am going to put them in a portfolio so you’ll have […]

Great portraits Lee! You’re gorgeous Diane! And like Chris, I think I could add pretty accurate thought bubbles to many of these! (Of course I’m far to much of a lady to post some of them.)

WOW and double WOW!! Sometimes I am just astounded that this beautiful woman is actually related to me!! The lighting on Image 2 is just perfect! I don’t know what you said just before shooting 3 & 5 but that look says…..”you’re gonna get it, boy!” 😉 Really enjoy looking at your stuff! I’ll have to tell ole Tom. He bookmarked your page so he could go back to it! Great job, hon, and nice talking to you!!! Until next time……feel better! Love ya!

Lighting Practice (& Homecoming)

So I am watching some Scott Kelby training videos to learn about lighting. There’s wayyyyy tooooo much for me to remember. Well, maybe if I practice…at least that’s what I tell the family when i say, “Do you have just a few minutes to help me with my practice?” And, they normally will sit for […]

I think the “practice” is working! Those are some beautiful shots and that’s one gorgeous daughter you’ve got there! She has this posing stuff down pat! Nice job, Dad!!
