Tulip Revisit – Part 1

Just a quick post today after a rather lengthy hiatus. Some color and black and white photographs of tulips to get us back into the swing of things. These particular images will be going up for available prints at both sites for prints by me; this one and this one.

A Quick Portrait Session, Rustic Fun

The last few days have been rather busy. Nothing to complain about there. One of the highlights of that busy-ness was a quick and fun portrait session. Fall colors are not quite in full effect but the session was successful nonetheless. The young man I was to photograph was full of personality. Like most little ones it took a minute to warm up to this stranger with the weird contraption trying to get him to smile, but he was a trooper.

The outdoor setting was a good compliment to his classic denim wardrobe. The addition of a favorite toy helped elicit a little more emotion and interaction. Unpredictability when photographing the little ones is alway an adventure, but a rewarding one.

The challenge of being true to a child’s personality should never be taken lightly. When done well it produces a lasting testament and cherished memory. Delivering photos like these to appreciative parents is one of the best things about my photography.

TECHNICAL: Fujifilm XT-2 & XF 56mm f/1.2

If I could draw or paint to any acceptable degree I probably wouldn’t be a photographer.

I’ve spent probably close to a year coming to grips with my color photographic work. I began with black and white film (Kodak Plus-X and Fuji Acros being favorites) and for a time really struggled with color work. Especially digital. I finally got to the point where I was comfortable enough…but if you are engaged in a creative pursuit you know “comfortable enough”, never is.

So I would work at it. I now think my color work is as strong as my black and white work. Usually.

At any rate, you can judge because the next post is all about some recent fine art work and features color in equal amounts to monochrome.

Ruby Beach No. 3

 

The last of the images from my last outing to Ruby Beach. The skies were not as dramatic as I’d have liked but I do like the images on the whole. Further, there is something almost meditative about landscape photography; the necessity to slow down and take all the considerations of the scene to account including composition and light.

Many of the prints appearing in these posts are available for purchase here and here.

Ruby Beach No. 2

A continuation of images from my most recent trip to Ruby Beach. Interestingly, I wasn’t the only photographer present that brisk morning. We both went about our endeavors, respectfully avoiding spoiling each others shots, intent on our work.

More tomorrow.
