The Roving Photographer


Trostle Pond & thoughts on color and b&w

  Turns out I shot a lot of photos at Trostle Pond the other morning.  And I was going through them in post, I stumbled upon a situation where I couldn’t decide how I’d best like to see the final product.  For me it happens like this: an image comes up on the monitor and […]

Saturday Light – Lady of the Lake

So it’s a rainy, gloomy Saturday morning, a balmy 48* outside, what do you do to pass the time? Well, if you’re me, you convince your friends to meet you at the county park, where you proceed to do a photo shoot in the pond!

Color or b&w?

Sometimes I find that the choice between color and black and white is straight-forward, while other times it’s a lot harder for me to figure out which I prefer.  The beauty of shooting RAW is having the ability to make that decision after the fact, or even to make a duplicate and try both edits. […]

A few links to share

If you have any interest in macro photography, it’s worth checking out this thread from FredMiranda: Macro setups. I wanted to see how other photographers were setting up their flashes for macro shots – I’m doing some research after getting a major dose of inspiration. Some of the setups are hilarious, just from the standpoint […]

Misc inspiration from the Net

I’ve once again spent (wasted) enough time surfing the internet to have come across some items of actual value amid the rest of the crap that’s out there. This is the stuff I feel is really worth sharing, so here’s hoping you enjoy it as much as I have. (And as usual, the random photo […]

Eales Preserve up close

Owning a macro lens pretty much means that you’ll spend time in the field crawling around on your hands and knees and shooting with your butt up in the air. It isn’t especially attractive – certainly not as impressive as shooting with a big telephoto lens that makes your biceps bulge – but the results […]

Autumn in the air

Autumn has arrived. It’s subtle, so much that you could miss the first signs, the calendar barely into September.  But I woke up Friday morning and knew it. It was in the air, that unmistakable crispness, that autumn smell. The days are shorter, the light warmer and somehow more lovely.  It is, perhaps, as much […]

Interesting Links

It’s one of those weeks where I’ve sat down at the computer pretty much every day, ready to write, but nothing good has come.  It happens.  Writer’s block, outside distractions, other projects…or all of the above. So instead, here’s some interesting links I’ve come across in the past couple of weeks, starting with: Thomas Czarnecki’s […]

In the woods

Shooting in the woods is difficult.  I was reading an article a couple of weeks back, about a photographer who specializes in less-common landscapes, and he commented on forest photography a little, which got me thinking.  My experience with forest photography is really summed up like this: I either end up with an image that’s […]

Foggy morning at Fords – Brent’s perspective

Paul and I got together for some photos up at Fords Pond one morning last week – nothing serious, just ambled around the side of the pond, shooting some landscapes and even a few wildlife shots of a Mute Swan that put in an appearance.  I didn’t think much of the shots after I finished […]
