Project 365 | 131207 | Sunset Colors

The colors of sunset are always fun to photograph, even when capturing it in a somewhat different way, such as in the image below. I continue to enjoy experimenting with out of focus scenes that highlight colors, shapes and lines …

Project 365 | 131205 | Christmas Lights

I wanted to photograph our outside Christmas lights, but I didn’t want to do it with a typical type image, so I decide to go with something a little more abstract. I used my 85mm at f1.2 for some nice bokeh and then went with a long exposure while experimenting with different camera movements. Below is my favorite from the mini session …

Project 365 | 131203 | Golden Rays

When the sun is low in the sky and it’s producing a ‘golden’ color, there are lots of folks that point the lens directly into the sun … It works best when you find something that is 90-180 degrees oposite of the sun, to help showcase that golden color …

Project 365 | 131202 | Pebbles

Although pretty straight forward, I enjoy the infinity feeling that the black and white conversion gives of the scene … I think it would be a good texture as a backdrop within a composite …

Project 365 | 131201 | Christmas Tree Bokeh

As some of my blog visitors know, I’m a big fan of bokeh within my photography. I believe that the blur, softness and out of focus area of an image can create interest. In the scene below I’ve used the entire area to showcase our Christmas tree lights with the beautiful bokeh of one of my canon lenses.

Project 365 | 131127 | Lines & Shapes

It was finally time to bring in our outside chairs for the season. And before taking them inside, I found some fun lines and shapes within the chairs as they were all stacked on top of each other. Below was my favorite scene …

Project 365 | 131124 | Prickly Softness

What is your sense of the scene? Softness or prickliness … Or some how both at the same time?

Project 365 | 131119 | Colors

Pick a color, any color … Or maybe a beige or a grey or even some shade of cream. My wife and I are in color chip land once again as we decide on the new color of our kitchen cabinets, walls and countertops …

I got together with Nasia and Jimmy in downtown Baltimore to capture their engagement images. We had a great time moving around Federal Hill Park and the Inner Harbor as we captured several different scenes of the happy couple, including the highlight image you see below …

Project 365 | 131115 | Kitty’s

Our two kitty’s got an impromptu photo shoot, as I decided it was time to photograph Stilt’s amazing jumping ability. He’s got some serious ups when there is any food involved, especially if you dangle some noodles above him.

And since we had everything set up, we gave our other cat some time in front of the lens also …
