  1. Photography and adventure in Tawas.

    by , 01-19-2009 at 11:38 AM
    On Saturday (1/17/09) I decided it'd be fun to get some "snowy lighthouse" pictures. So I went online and found that a close, publicly accessable lighthouse would be the Tawas Point Lighthouse. So I got up a the butt-crack of dawn (5am for me) on Sunday, got ready and headed out. It's a 2hr drive to Tawas, MI from here so I was hoping to make sunrise.

    After getting some McD's breakfast, gas, and a little miscommunication between me and my GPS, it turned into a 3hr drive. ...

  2. Summer in Sydney - Dollar Portraits Shoot

    by , 01-15-2009 at 09:32 PM (Click)
    On my way home one day I ran into a very pretty girl reading a newspaper. I approached her for a portrait. I don't recall my exact words but it went something like this, "Please don't think I'm a psycho but..." As I approach people on the street some of them look at me with this frightened look so I begin with that line. I'm building an arsenal of lines and reading people very quickly. I won't pretend I get them all right and some will always say no despite anything I say.

    I read somewhere here a quote that went something like "You can be a sloppy photographer, just as long as you're consistently sloppy."

    Sometimes I feel like I live that. One example is that I just have a fundamental problem getting a horizon line level in the camera. I have spirit levels and they only seem to make things worse some how. I still try someteimes, but feel much more comfortable taking an "off balance" shot or a shot that simply doesn't need any ...
  4. Ragnar Axelsson: Faces of the North

    by , 01-11-2009 at 09:28 AM
    I didn't find a review on this gorgeous book on APUG, so here is mine!

    I recently went to Iceland in mid-winter and was fortunate to meet Ragnar Axelsson and collect his signature on this book, which is filled with remarkably effective b&w images from his ventures in Iceland, Greenland, and the Faeroe islands.

  5. I am pondering this...

    by , 01-11-2009 at 04:42 AM
    So, I am trying to come u with ideas for photographic assignments for myself to do. If anybody wants to give me a suggestion they should give one, but here is what i have thought about so far:

    Putting my camera on self timer and, as the timer runs down, i throw a large paper plane into the frame of the image, a bit of a chance image type-thingermagigger.

    still thinking. As with my creative writing stuff, every time I sit down to write a blog I get writer's block. ...
