Water Drops

I am still taking the photography course with NYIP and gaining more confidence working in manual mode..  I took this photo the other day and I think it came out pretty good.

Settings:  Sony a65-SLTV, 60mm, OFC set 128 and 64 (not sure for this image), 1/200, F/7.1, 800 ISO.

Is there anything that I could have done differently to improve on this image?

Alien Seed Pods 3

This seed pod is still morphing into something out of this world.  It now looks like shredded carrots.  I wonder what it will turn into?

Have you seen anything like this before?

Something old

I mentioned to my mother a while back that I wanted to start collecting old cameras and display them in my office.  Well, she has started the collection for me.  So far she has found 3 cameras and an old tripod in different thrift stores.  The first one is a Polaroid Land Camera Model 800 built from 1957 – 1962.  Click here to see a quick video showing how to operate this camera.

This is a very heavy camera.

Frosty Trails

After editing this photo and converting it to black and white,  my first thought was trails on the moon.

What is your first impression?

A Life’s Quest

Life – Circus – Death

psx_20160926_232807-02

That is the title of Bill Forchion’s one man show.  The show depicts important pieces of his life in the persona of his alter ego, Soupbone the Clown.  The theme of the show was to follow your dreams.  Do not jut sit there and wait for things to happen but go out and make it happen!

Bill is my cousin and remembering him as a kid and seeing him now living his life is inspiritation to me.  To go out and make things happen.

Bill allowed me the pleasure of taking photographs of him before and during the show.  It was interesting to see how he applies his make-up with such precision.

I hope you like the photos!

I am on a quest to improve my photography and I welcome constructive critiques.
