In search of light

While in Athens, I stumbled upon an empty church, chapel. Anyway, I let myself in and went looking for interesting light. While I was looking, I felt these eyes watching me and turned around to see...the face in the window. I know he's underexposed....It all happened so suddenly...

Feline portraits


traveling through Athens, Ga , I passed by these....and had to stop to photograph. My favorite is the pig

All types of lighting. Film

Front lighting, back lighting, and side lighting. On generic film from japan.. Shooting with film makes me not want to shoot digital its so much more rewarding. Plus I just obtained a Hp scanjet scanner. It has back lit slots for film and slides to scan and can scan up to 9400dpi. I highly recommend it to any one who uses film or scans in illustrations.

Ps. I know there's not really a subject in the first image i was going for a washed out landscape that showed the shape of the treeline, granite and bushes.

Circus Light

We were in a class at the circus and there was light coming in from the ceiling. The light was bouncing from the the floor and hitting the door and creating this cool effect by making the door bright while everything else was darker. It is hard to tell with these photos. You just have to believe me.

fun shot

I took this picture pre-Creative Circus. It sits on my desk at work and has a sticker attached that says "smile". Long story short, when I took the shot, I thought the Beluga whale was smiling, but one of my coworkers explained to me that Beluga whales are very territorial...and hate outsiders swimming in their tank. So, my smiling whale image is really a picture of a creature who's pretty upset. It's still funny to me, now that I know "Natasha" really wants to bite the diver.

Natural Lighting

The photographer seems to utilize natural lighting to the fullest. Both of these photos have a different mood that is created by the quality of light.

Effects Of Light Passing Through Rain

So now that I know that it rains a lot here in Atlanta I can expect to see this more often. I was randomly driving around to different stores, in the rain of course. I saw this cool effect the rain made inside the car. I would love to see if i could recreate this in a studio.

More White Reflections

So again i found this cool small reflection on this pot hanging from my mirror. I was waiting for my friend so we could go eat and i was parked next to a white SUV. Like the leaf it left cool white reflections.


I was going to a friends house and it was cloudy and raining just a little. I saw this awesome leaf with really cool white reflections on it. I like how the water on the leaf acts like a reflector and also makes it shine.

natural back lighting

On my way from work to class yesterday evening, I passed by this tree with wonderful light in the leaves. The sun was setting behind the tree...and I paused for a moment to look and record what I saw.

More Reflection

I'm kinda fascinated with the reflections on buildings right now...never shot images like this before, but having fun with it.

Finding my way

In life, there are challenges to face and obstacles to overcome.....but if we keep moving forward despite the opposition, there is a light at the end of the tunnel......and eventually we find our way!
