As if I care :-)

So in the next few days I'll be in the beautiful land of Tonga.Taking photos and not giving a care for those who live in their own little world, making their own little misguided rules in their own dreary little jobs - nowhere people in nowhere land - as the Beatles would say.There's not too many images of Tonga. Oh it's just another beach some will say. So are many of my best selling photos. Just a beach was said for those too!So have fun while I'm away because I certainly... continue reading

Beaches, and Surfers, and Pies, Oh My!

Back in November, I took a trip to Miami, Florida, and had a wonderful time. I walked the beaches, and rode a bicycle around town and shopped, and took tons of photos, and watched the surfers shredding the waves, and ate foods that are more common down there, than they are up where I live. Fresh fruit smoothies every day. Etc. I saw Key Lime Pie on every dessert menu, though I did not eat any while I was down there. Perhaps on my next trip south, I may try some. Back home in Maryland, I saw this particular... continue reading

Love to reach a goal

I love it when I reach a goal...It at least makes me feel like I have accomplished something. One goal I set for myself was to have 400 images uploaded and accepted to Dreamstime, and to have at least 100 sales. well I did make it to the 400 mark this week, although I seem to be stuck on 70 in the sales department. however I am confident that number will change.As 2012 comes to a close, it makes me more aware that 2013 will be a good year to once again sit down and set goals. one, it gives me... continue reading

Origin Stories

Until a few months ago I didn't know (or care) much about photography at all.I'd heard terms such as aperture, white balance, depth of field and what not, but had little more than a vague understanding of what they meant.Shooting holiday snaps with a point and shoot, these terms hardly applied to me.Photography was just a matter of pointing a camera at something, pressing the button halfway then pushing down again.Point.Shoot.Voila, there's a photo.It's vaguely in focus, now where's... continue reading

Narcissism

:As I was writing this blog entry mostly what I feel is how boring and dreary the subject is... because narcissists are so limiting and negative despite their unending efforts to appear otherwise. I see that there are real people out there doing joyful things together and I want to be part of that. Life is vitality. There is so much richness to experience in this life.I've studied cluster B personality disorders not only because it was relevant to my personal life but also because psychology... continue reading

So much easier!

I often struggle with lighting on my photos; particularly those taken indoors. The layout of my house is not so good, and our weather is often so dark and dreary that very little light comes in the windows anyway. Sometimes it is so dark that the best shutter speed I can get (to allow for the depth of field I want) with natural light is 5 seconds!I have a hotshoe flash, and have tried bouncing it off the ceiling, and using white paper to try and bounce the light back. Sometimes this works ok,... continue reading

Fog. Not always as bad as it seems...

About a year ago I moved to a part of Switzerland that is known for being foggy for four to six months a year.The sky during Winter here is almost constantly of a dull light grey, when it's not completely white, and the temperatures are almost always around zero degrees Centigrade.Dreary place, you'll say. Well, up to a point I agree. The local weather certainly reduced the amount of outdoor pictures I take during the cold months. At the same time, it takes fog and low temperatures to have... continue reading

It happened one day...

A blog about nothing, the mad ramblings of a bored mind.I am counting the weeks... till such a time that I can start counting days... till such a time that I can start counting hours... till the moment that I can walk out of this place knowing that I never have to walk back in here again.Finally, the moment has come where the chains can be unlinked, when new horizons can be explored, when all things have come together and conspired to grant me a new beginning.2007 has lived up to its... continue reading
