For the next couple of weeks I'll be working on a job site for KIT Communications. Installing some security cameras in a rehab center (woot) but I hope to be able to go out in the evenings and maybe even the weekend and shoot around Chicago..So many things to see and do...So stay tuned on updates!
Ah spring is finally here and we can enjoy some outdoor activities. One of my favorite things to do is walk around a zoo and look at all the animals. Birds are singing and flowers are popping out everywhere. It should make for some good photos.
Today I received a letter that one of my photographs has been accepted into the Harrisburg Art Association’s 85th International Juried Exhibition. It's one of the first images I have created where I went into a totally different direction when it comes to making a image. The opening for this exhibition on May 18th from 6pm-9pm. The Exhibition is open to the public from May 17th to June 20th. If you are not yet a member or fan of myFacebookpage check it out for more details and updates. In my normal gallery fashion this image is going to be printed on metal and it will be limited to 10 and priced at $275.00 for the duration of the gallery and afterwards will go back to $325.00. You can email me if you wish to get one of these prints at the special price. Thank you.
This last weekend I headed down to Middle Creek Wildlife preserve to photograph the snow geese and any other water fowl that happened to be there. On the way there out in a field I saw a small group of snow geese chilling. So I grabbed my camera and my telephoto lens(70-200) and took some shots...I was so exited to get the shots that I only checked to make sure my aperture was in the right setting....but not my shutter speed. I though I had it in aperture priority instead I had it in manual and the shutter was a bit slow..
I liked the way the flock of birds were moving and I had to do something with the shot...couldn't let it sit on the hard drive and collect virtual dust. So opened it up in Lightroom 4 and started to play with it...1 hour later and half a bag of pistachios...voila!
Sometimes you can turn a oops shot into something interesting.
