103 / 365 The Zipper

Another twilight image from local church fair the other night. It was nice to get some shooting in... hope to get some more in before too much longer.

Have a great day! - Ed

102 / 365 Evening At The Fair

Finally was able to get out and do a little evening and night shooting. I have been looking for inspiration lately, as my photography is in a bit of a funk. Never shot rides at a fair before and figured it would be a good time to try my hand at it. This was a local carnival, at St. Joe's church. There will be more fairs and carnivals as the summer progresses and hopefully I will get an opportunity to shoot some of them as well.

Welcome to summer!

Have a great day! - Ed

100 / 365 100th Image Of Project 365!!!

A milestone of sorts... I made it to the 100th image in my Project 365! Of course; I am only 63 images behind, and with the rate that I am shooting, that seems like a much larger number. Whatever... I am still having fun, learning, and working on my creativity. The actual numbers don't matter; and since I am the project manager on this one, I can always rename the project on December 31st to whatever makes it work lol!

Thank you to everyone who is still following along with my journey. These flowers are really for you and your support. Okay, they are really the ones I got my wife yesterday, but she will never know if I borrow them for my project.

Have a great day! - Ed

99 / 365 The First One...

I made this image in response to a question by another photographer regarding our first digital cameras. What, when, can and do you still use it, etc?

This was my first; a Sony F717 that I purchased in December of 2003, a few weeks and a few hundred dollars in film processing after our daughter was born. That decision to move from film to digital has never been regretted; especially when I consider that it was the birth of Elise that really drove me to get re-invested in both time and energy with my photography.

It does still work and will create great images if I let it ;)

Have a great day! - Ed

97 / 365 Summer's Path

A vertical of the same path, processed slightly differently as an HDR...

Have a great day! - Ed

96 / 365 His Woods

Taken this afternoon in overcast conditions at Longwood Gardens. This is a 5 shot image that I processed using NIK HDR Efex. This is the first time that I visualized and captured an image specifically for using as an HDR. I tend to try an keep my processing towards the realistic, "thats what it looked to me" side vs. the more hyper-reality side.

Have a great day! - Ed

95 / 365 Marsh Creek Bust

Not the greatest sunrise ever recorded; but hey, at least I was there, and I met up with a fellow shooter, Ed Heaton. While the shooting wasn't great, we did have a good discussion about gear, methods, and most importantly, being in and overcoming a photographic funk. Finding inspiration in the same locations and subjects; refreshing one own's perspective...

Have a great day! - Ed

94 / 365 Practice

Took a few moments this evening to get better acquainted with CS5 and the updated NIK filter suite. This image was from last October and processed with Silver Efex 2. I should be back up to speed in a little while...

Thanks for the patience and understanding...

Have a great day! - Ed
