Images of home

posted on 6th of november, 2012

Well, Iowa isn't really my home. I grew up in upstate New York and I miss the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. I used to feel that there was nothing to shoot out here in the Midwest, it all feels so flat and I do hope to get back to the mountains someday, either NYS or the Colorado Rockies.

But photography has given me new eyes and I have found some beauty here in the flatlands :-) I am sharing some images of my current home with you.

It just goes to show, there is beauty everywhere and if we look with the right eyes, we can find some good images.

Used Canon 6D

posted on 8th of november, 2012

I was poking around on Amazon.com. They have used 6D's at a significant discount. There is more information at

They are advertised as like new and it is hard to see how they could have much use on them. I know some people have been anxious to get their hands on one and these are about $800 cheaper than new, so figured I would pass the info on.

Hmmmm....not sure. The link from my FB page should be working, I tested it earlier. This is from a five star seller in Amazon. They list their email as Fandhinc@live.com for any questions.

The ad is for 6d. I even added it to my cart to check because I found it hard to believe. I am saving for a 5d though, not really looking for this model. If you do email and get an answer, would you mind reporting back?

The Amazon link doesn't seem to work. Also, 6D has not been released yet and how can there be used units? Or you meant 60D?

Tip for shooting night images

posted on 16th of november, 2012

A photographer on another site recommended this method for shooting lit buildings at night.

Meter the interior lights of the building ahead of time. Go back around twilight and wait for that beautiful blue sky. Meter the sky. When the light reading for the sky=reading of the interior, take your shot. (On a tripod of course :-) )

I'm going to try that the next time I shoot buildings in the evening. Meanwhile, I will share my two latest uploads.

Big thanks and little thanks

posted on 27th of november, 2012

Big thanks: My daughter's apartment was in a complex that burned down on Thanksgiving Day and everyone got out alright. Because she worked late the night before, my granddaugther was at the babysitter's and did not have to experience the smoke and flame from inside the house. There were three families in the complex and nobody was hurt. Pictures of the fire are below.

Little thanks: These pictures put me over 50 on DT and I can now contribute to assignments.

Remember to give your family a little extra love every chance you get.

One thing I learned with this set of images is not only do flames move, but a building is also moving as it burns, so you...

About me

I have had a camera in my hand ever since I can remember. I was always the kid that wanted to trot down to the scene of the crime, or truck accident, or whatever, and get the images that would document that event for posterity. I guess its no surprise that I am naturally drawn to editorial and journalistic photography!
