Suspicion

For whatever reason there are always certain images that the artists who captured them favor more than others. This particular image is one of my personal favorites! I’m not exactly sure if it’s the expression, the details, the moment, or all of the above? But, there’s something about this shot that just makes me really happy. This photo is actually apart of a small series that I’ll be posting very soon, but I had to share it on it’s own first. I know other’s might not feel the same way that I do about it and that’s ok, I certainly enjoy looking at it so I figured “why not?” If ¬†you’re viewing this post I hope it at least makes you smile too? Have a great weekend everyone!

Mobile Home

Here’s an image I shot a few weeks ago of a man walking a bike with what appears to be all of his personal belongings? It was created by shooting through the window of a moving car along a busy street.

Climbing

I’m so happy and excited that fall is finally here! The weather has cooled down a bit and this weekend was beautiful. I decided to go out to the park with my son and shoot some nature. While shooting, a family seemed to appear from out of nowhere. This shot was captured when this little girl entered my frame to try and climb these big, slippery rocks. I quickly snapped 2 shots and when I reviewed them later on the computer I chose this one over the other. That’s just one of the cool aspects of photography. You don’t always have to search for every shot, sometimes they reveal themselves to you. As long as you’re alert and prepared, sometimes some of the best shots will materialize right in front of you.

Riding On Sunshine

I love the deep shadows of the late evening sun. This shot was taken in downtown Columbus last weekend near the river.

The Dog Days Of Winter

2 weekends ago the weather was absolutely perfect so I decided to take a trip downtown. I hadn’t been downtown in months, but specifically since I returned home from Illinois. As the sun started to set I noticed a growing amount of dog walkers out, probably more than I’ve ever seen at this time of the year. Although I had my camera, my intention was to shoot nature this time around, not people or pets. The light from the setting sun created a slew of cool photographic opportunities so naturally I had to snap a few shots of the friendly people and their pets. I have to admit that I was conflicted because of the weather. Normally I would have shot far more frames but, I enjoyed the temperature so much that for once I didn’t want to shoot as much as I just wanted to relax. Below are a few of the photos from this wonderful day. If only the weather were always this mild…I’d probably stay out every single day from sunrise to sunset! Hopefully this spring will actually feel like spring and not summer so I can get out more and meet more cool people.

Accidental Patriot

This photograph was taken completely by accident! This all occurred while I was out shooting on this past Veterans Day. I accidentally pressed the shutter of my main camera while switching to my secondary camera. I didn’t even realize I had taken this picture until I returned home to review the images on the computer. After seeing the shot I realized that although it was all wrong from a concious photographic point of view, it was still something about it that I really liked. So while deleting all the shots I deemed “bad” or “unusable” something about this shot forced me to keep it. I spoke briefly yesterday about the importance of carefully reviewing shots before deleting them, or keeping some of the bad images because you might end up liking them later on. This was a case of not knowing I had taken a shot, and under normal circumstances would consider it a bad shot, but yet finding myself drawn to it for some reason? Maybe because it’s not technically perfect? Maybe because, despite being an accident there’s still enough of a story in the frame to warrant a glance or two? Who knows? Whatever the reason is I like it enough to want to share it with everyone here. Some may see the value of it the same way I did, and some won’t, but, isn’t that what photography is all about anyway? You decide what appeals to you!

Rolling Pastures

Happy Hump Day everyone! Today I’d like to share an image taken while in the passengers seat with the window down, in freezing weather, going 70mph. We were driving along the highway in Cartersville Georgia and I noticed these cows at the last second. I quickly rolled down the window, aimed my phone and took the shot. This was the result. I thought it was kinda cool because of the motion blur in the foreground and along the fence. Due to our speed the fence appears to be slanted. Shots like this don’t come along as often as I’d like but, when they do I try hard to pay enough attention to try and capture them.
