DVDs Are In... originally uploaded by strobist.
This is exciting and useful. If you want to really get into lighting, this is sure to be a valuable resource.
So, check out the post: Strobist Lighting Seminar DVDs now available.
Spread the word.
Shadows play games with passers by. A lone cat wanders by and vanishes. A mirage from the world of the unforgiven.

It's not that I don't want to shoot the boats, it's just that the area that I want to approach this from is underwater except during negative tides and that hasn't happened during the races yet.
Soon I hope.

Photography is a form of communication, even if what's being said is as simple as giving context and meaning to a two dimensional representation of an object.
So, I guess the question is: Can you say more with less?

The bright colors, the curves and lines, the flashy chrome, and the tail fins... those were something that made statements and had personality
Which is probably why I love to go to these car shows when they come around and take abstract images of the cars.
It's as if the cars are just saying "I'm ready for my close up Mr. Nikon" (or Canon, etc.)

I'm slowly building up my online portfolio on those two sites (in addition to a couple of other sites). Now all I've got to do it get my download average to increase.
Time to concentrate on improving my key wording abilities.

All right. When you blog from flickr you have to use one of their templates or build your own. So, I'm going to try this one and see if I like it.
About the photo: Sunrise silhouette. One of my favorite subjects (silhouettes).

The train station? Nope. The newly remodeled airport terminal? Nope.
Hum... I needed something with interesting interior lighting. A historic church. Yes, that will do.
Ah, now to plan around the tourists and the Tripod Police. The tourist part was easy, just wait until there are a few moments with no one in your shot (as a long exposure was needed in this case).
The Tripod Police? I didn't even bother taking my tripod out of the car.
What I ended up doing was balancing the camera on a pew as best I could. This is why the photograph is off center. This is fine, as I wanted to be respectful of the church and their traditions.
There's a lesson here. Photographing interiors of public buildings requires planning and permission from the powers that be. Good thing this isn't really the type of photography I'm interested in....

That being said, find a good subject and go out and give it a try. With a little faith and practice you should start getting some interesting results. Remember that the less light, the longer the exposure you're going to need to make.
My next project is going to be to increase my inventory of low light architecture stock photography images. So, now all I have to do is scout out some buildings that seem worthy of the effort.

The solution: Borrow more money using the lottery as collateral and cut spending, etc., etc., etc.
There's going to be more budget drama, so stay tuned.
Any good news? Yes. We are going to keep the State Parks open, only charge more to get in some of them.

It never occurred to me (until now) to put together a lightbox of these images that I have uploaded on Alamy so that people can find them easier, and perhaps purchase some of my stock images.

On a side note: I was using a computer (not mine) and didn't have access to Photoshop and needed to quickly make a couple of adjustments to the photo above. What to do? I was Jonzing...
Then, I remembered Photoshop Express and thought, "of course, that'll do the trick". Wrong. The main thing I wanted to do was resize the image for the web... Resize isn't an option - YET!
This is something that would really help tons of folks. Even someone like me who uses the full version of Photoshop, at least 99.999999% of the time.
I hope this option gets added soon.
