Admin Building - Southern Miss

Fri Jul 3, 2015

Here is the Administration Building on the Southern Miss campus. It's the centerpiece of campus there and the dome is even used in their school logo. I can see why, because it's a gorgeous building.

Chapel Front - Mississippi State University

Tue Jun 30, 2015

I posted a photo of the back of the Chapel of Memories in February and I have taken lots of photos there. It's a beautiful, yet simple place, especially when the sun is shining through the stained glass windows at the entrance. This photo is looking towards the front of the chapel with the light through the glass casting some beautiful colors all over the place.

Miller Hall - Wood College

Thu Jun 4, 2015

During my quick trip to Wood College in Mathiston I was intrigued by this entrance to Miller Hall and with the tipped over lamp in front of the door I thought it looked very interesting. It's a very dramatic entryway. I know what your're thinking too, "Not another abandoned building". Sorry, I just can't help myself.

Eagle Landing - USM

Tue Jun 2, 2015

I love this eagle statue on the front of the University of Southern Miss campus and the colors worked together well. I have spent a lot of time in Hattiesburg over the last year and gotten some nice photos.

Chapel Entrance - Mississippi State

Tue May 19, 2015

I'm convinced that you can't get a bad shot at the Chapel of Memories at MSU. I think this may be the third or fourth photo I've posted from there and I have even more! This was taken in December as you can see from the barren trees, and I plan to get some photos there during the summer and fall with some full trees since it's only a stone's throw away from me 5 days a week.

MSU Drill Field

Fri Apr 24, 2015

Spring is here and I am so excited to be getting some more color in my photos with the bright green grass to contrast the beautiful blue skies. I took this photo a few weeks ago while doing some people photography on campus. The colors were vibrant so I wanted to be sure that this photo accurately reflected that. MSU really does have a beautiful campus. The people you may have to squint your eyes to see are some Indian students playing Cricket.

What some people may not realize about HDR photography, at least my HDR photography, is that in most cases, I try to accurately represent reality in my photos, so what you see here is pretty much what I saw on the day I took the photo. Sure I take some liberties with color vibrancy, but mostly the color post processing is to better reflect what actually exists. Now, mind you, I said "most cases", obviously there are times when I like to experiment and be more artistic, because more than trying to mimic reality I want to create something that is pleasing to look at as a piece of art and not just point and shoot (Not that there's anyting wrong with that). I reallly want you to feel like you are in the photo and that if you touched the screen you could feel the texture of the grass.

Maybe I'll run into you in Jackson tomorrow!

Chopped Wood in the Chapel - Wood College

Tue Apr 21, 2015

As I typed the title of this blog post I laughed a little at the unintentional pun of it, so I hope that you didn't think that was a lame attempt at humor, but it is fitting that this photos was taken at Wood College. This is a little room to the side of the stage at the front of the outdoor chapel and it seemed interesting to me when I saw it and I wondered why there was chopped wood sitting in this room when there seemed to be no use for it inside the chapel, but maybe there was something I missed. I like that it made me ask questions about why the logs were there and I think photos like this should make you wonder about why/how/when because it forces you to search the photo a little more. I think an axe in the corner would've been a nice addition to this photo, but alas, on this day I just happened to leave my axe at home.

Looking forward to taking some photos in the Jackson area this Saturday morning and afternoon.

Wood College Chapel - Mathiston

Wed Apr 1, 2015

I made a quick trip (all my trips seem to be quick) to Mathiston wanting to get a few photos of the now shut down Wood College. I had been to a wedding there before and thought the outdoor chapel was really neat so that was my main agenda while there. Sometimes when I think about places that would make for great photos, in my mind I can see it looking really great, but there are times when you photograph the place or after editing the photos you find they aren't as great as you thought. I say that just to say that, in this case, the photo turned out even better than I thought it would. The wood beams in the ceiling just made for a great photo and are fun to look at and follow as they lead you to the cross on the wall at the front of the chapel, which I think is a nice touch. I'll post a couple more photos of Wood College in the future.

Poindexter Hall - MUW

Sun Mar 29, 2015

The W in Columbus is a very historic college and thus it is filled with some great historic architecture. For such a small college, it contains lots of nice buildings that are fun to photograph. My favorite time of day to go there is around sunset where I've gotten some great shots. I don't do many black & white HDR photos just because I love to play with color and creating vibrant realistic photos, however there are times when black & white is just the way to go and there's no avoiding it. I think, especially, with buildings like this it's fun to get rid of color and give it a more vintage feel to go along with the architecture.
