The Old Barn

Before departing back to California, I had one last opportunity to take a few IR shots in the countryside.

After a long, hard, arduos morning carrying, hauling and stacking wood with my cousins, I took this shot beforing heading home. This last shot is easily my favorite of the bunch.

More IR

I like the way this photo is framed. I sat for 10 minutes on the old railroad tracks waiting for the clouds to part. The cloud's shadow provided a perfect border drawing the eye to the center.
A little patience paid off as this is among my favorite shots of the two weeks.

The Annual Pilgrimmage

My annual pilgrimmage to Ohio was extremely profitable this year. I was blessed with spectacular weather. Throughout the first week, the sky was speckled with large clouds, providing me with excellent shots.

I was amazed how 3-D the clouds came out in the IR photos. I decided to travel around the countryside photography good scenes. I soon settled on a subject of old farming building structures. This subject became my theme for the entire journey.

Food Photos

I spent a good part of the summer preparing for a food photo shoot. I never did one before but always admired the art. I was asked to do this shoot for a upcoming website.

I did not arrange the food but I did the lighting and photography. I think they turned out very well for my first effort. The color really pops out and the lighting covered the entire subject well.

Over all, I was pleased with these photos.
