Fishin' Buddies Part 2

Thu Nov 26, 2015

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody! I hope everyone is spending time with family and taking it easy while eating lots of turkey. It's pretty easy to take a load off after a Thanksgiving meal.

Here's a closer shot of the two friends fishing that I posted recently. Caught a lot of great shots of these two boys having fun, but most of them were not in HDR, but the ones I did capture for HDR have turned out to be great, not that I'm biased or anything.

It's Fall Y'all

Thu Nov 19, 2015

Here's another shot from the private lake we visited this past weekend. I'm trying to get some good fall photos before the leaves disappear completely for the winter, though I think the unseasonably warm weather may keep them around a bit longer (Silver Lining).

Fishin' Buddies - Clay County

Tue Nov 17, 2015

My wife and I were invited to a get together this past Sunday and on the property of the home we were at was this small lake. There were a few other families there and these boys were part of one of those families and they were enjoying some fishing time. Since I always carry my camera with me I decided to snap some photos of the property and I just thought the scene of these two boys fishing was just so awesome. They were excited to have their pictures taken with the possibility of being on my web site, which I'm not sure they remembered the name of, but hopefully word will get to them. I was playing around with colors, kind of getting bored with the presets I was using while editing some of my photos, so I turned the Vibrance down and BAM! the colors just looked so great, especially considering the fall scenery outside. The mood of the photo just seemed to be perfect to me. I saved this new preset I created and will be using a lot in the future for both HDR shots and portraits. Exploring is fun!

Sunset In A Field - West Point

Mon Nov 16, 2015

Here's a shot off of Highway 50 near West Point. If you've never driven that stretch of highway between Columbus & West Point there is an area that is a huge open field that is full of photo opportunities, which explain why I have posted so many photos from this area.

Commerce Street at Night

Mon Nov 9, 2015

Here's a shot I took last Christmas night of downtown West Point. I really need to get out more at night and shoot the small towns as they are lit up because I think I can get some nice shots that way. Plus, it's just fun and challenging to shoot at night.

The Windmill and the Stars - West Point

Fri Nov 6, 2015

You may be getting tired of seeing photos of this windmill, but, frankly, I don't care. Ok, maybe I care a little, but still, I love to shoot it at different times and I have tried to get a good night time shot of it several times and finally got one here. I wanted to get the milky way, but too much light pollution prevented that and you can only faintly see it. Still, I like this photo more each time I look at it and I hope you do too.

Muddy Farm - West Point

Sun Nov 1, 2015

It was very wet and muddy the day I took this photo, so for lack of better names, this was the title I chose to give. Sometimes it's best to not overthink things. This farm sits across a field from the new Yokohoma tire plant, which you can see the water tower of off in the distance. This phot just never really worked in color and then BAM! take away the color and it suddenly becomes a good photo.

Tractor Under the Stars - West Point

Fri Oct 23, 2015

I went out last night hoping to capture a milky way shot even in the midst of light pollution, which is prevalant in Mississippi (and around the country for that matter). I was not successful but I love the result of this photo, which was a shot where I was not even trying to capture the milky way. Shooting at night is tricky and you sometimes don't know what you've got until you get in LightRoom and start editing. I am still really happy with this image, but want to continue to get better at night photography.

River Morning - Clay County

Sat Oct 10, 2015

I decided one morning to find a spot on the river to capture an early morning shot. This was not too long after sunrise and the water was very calm so it made for some nice reflections and you can see the Hwy 82 bridge in the distance. Very peaceful shot.

The Windmill - West Point

Fri Oct 9, 2015

If I ride by this windmill at sunset, which I often do, then I will usually stop to photograph and because of that you now get to see it. I'm sure this will not be the last one.
