Shooting Digital vs Analog Film

I have found that when shooting sunsets I can shoot longer into the twilight with Digital than I was able to with Film and the same holds true with sunrises.  I tend to get there earlier and begin shooting because the exposures seem better balanced with highlight/shadow detail.




This sunrise image of Seattle is an example of beginning to shoot earlier than I would have with Analog film.

Happy New Year

Holiday Images


Time flies by and it is already the Holiday season.  Here are a few images to get you in the mood.  Lets start out with Turkey day.



This was a commercial turkey farm in Oregon and I photographed it while working for GTE's Community Books project.  Next lets get into Christmas.





The night before a big snow fall was to hit Washington State, I set up a small tree with lights and ran an extension cord out and away from the tree toward an outlet at the side of the house.  The snow covered everything real well.   This year I plan a variation on this shot.  We will see.

Bellevue Botanical Gardens

These images were taken at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington State.  No mater how hectic this world gets it is nice to know that there are places like this that can quiet down life's pressures and allow you to take images that reflect a more serene center in us all where we all can pause and remember why we took up photography in the first place.

Decisions Decisions


Fishermen at Lake Cassidy, Washington State
I thought about many ways to get my images seen buy the buying public because this seems to be where the industry is right now.

Large Environment Small Person








I have always enjoyed shooting images of man and man made objects in a big environment.
