Florida's Cow Camp

We recently went on a photo trip to Lake Kissimmee State Park. There is a place there called Cow Camp. It's a throw back to Florida of old where cattle roamed free and wireless internet was hard to come by. It's like stepping back to the 1800's. It's an awesome place for photo opportunities and I had a great time shooting with the lens baby and getting some great blurring effects.

Pirates of Penzance

Just finished photographing the theatre performance of Pirates of Penzance. This was performed by Harrison School for the Arts, in Lakeland Florida. This was just a great job by all the High School performers and the staff. It was wonderfully entertaining. If you missed it, I encourage you to try and catch other performances by this school as they do a top notch job.

Drops of reflections

So, I woke up this morning and had a hunger to photograph something. I grabbed my camera with the macro lens, a spray bottle filled with water and my tripod and trekked all the way to the backyard. The sun was still pretty low in the sky so I was able to get some soft light on these flowers. I needed a bit more light coming in from the side so I ran back inside and wrapped some aluminum foil around a piece of mail and used that to reflect a bit more light in from the other side of the sun and this was the resulting shot...ISO 400, 1/200 f/9...

Bok Tower Trip

Well, members of the Polk County Camera club made a trip to Beautiful Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Saturday April 19th. We spent the morning taking and working on some macro photography. The lens I used was a Canon 100mm Macro f/2.8 and my 40D. It was a perfect spring morning with most of the flowers in full bloom and it was hard not to find great subjects to photograph. Here is one of my favorite shots from the morning. I love the blurred background and muted colors in this shot.

The meaning of Life

I had the opportunity to photograph the new born baby, Hannah. Hannah was born to a coworker, Todd and his wife. Hannah was not exactly in the mood for photographs this evening as she seemed, of course much more interested in a bit of nourishment. After a few bottles she started tp relax a bit and then didn't mind. This was one of my favorite shots from the night.

Fog horn!

Took a quick trip to Lake Morton in Lakeland in late December and snapped a few shots on a foggy morning. Here is one of those shots that I thought came out pretty well.

More wedding fun

This was one of my favorite shots of the wedding from Britany & Ryan. Britany was getting ready in a motor home on site of the wedding and the room was a bit tight. Even so, we still managed to get of quite a few shots that I was happy with. This wedding was especially enjoyable for me as my 14 year old daughter, Anna assisted me. Anna took some wonderful and creative shots. I hope to bring her along to more weddings. Here is one of the young bridesmaids from the wedding and one of my favorite shots.
