Shifting Sands…

October 26th, 2009 | colorado, Sand Dunes

This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Sand Dunes National Park located in Southern Colorado and wander around before the snows came. They are truly amazing in both size and location. I have some great pics taken with snow capped mountains as back drops but tried this photo as a pure composition piece.

The amazing portrait

October 11th, 2009 | Iraq, Portraits

While in Iraq, I met this man who looked a little war-torn. He was kind enough to stop and let me snap a photo. Despite what many think, he is an expat and not an Iraqi.

Gran Turino

October 10th, 2009 | day to day life, Portraits

So it is a Saturday Night and being the “Mr. Exciting” that I am decided to venture into dark, dramatic, duotones. I had always read about them, but was always dismissing duotones for something else that had my attention for the minute (HDR, Masking, Compositing, etc). Since my wife was out wine tasting, I had no subject but myself so decided to set up some lights and make it happen. Some people say that I have a mean face when I am angry, and I might be inclined to agree with them. I am known in the neighborhood, as the guy who is constantly saying, “GET OFF MY LAWN”.
