Ree is way cool. Head on over to her blog. You have until midnight Pacific Time to go and be one of the tens of thousands of people looking to win something.

Go. Do it. It’s cool. I did.


02.27.11 this is how my girl likes her coffee (12/365)

Tall plastic cup.
Pour creamer in cup (ideally it’s Coffee-mate Italian Sweet Creme).
Crank up Keurig pod (Caribou Blend by Caribou Coffee).
Then (and here’s the secret) crank out another shot, using the same pod.
I use a fork for stirring (makes more sense to me; contact me if you would like to discuss).

02.05.11 Winter time portrait of Jake in the driveway

So Jake comes out after I finish shooting Julia’s pictures and I’ve put away the ladders (hint, hint, anyone wanting to gift me a super-wide angle lens?) and is ready to have his photos taken.
Why not? This 365 thing is certainly something to be part of.
And yes, Day Six is on the same date as Day Five in my 365.
And yes, I like to use HTML tags.

02.05.11 I took a photo sabbatical and Poof, my model grew up

We received six inches of snow today.
So after clearing the driveway we took a trip to the store and brought along the camera.
Figured we’d do a shot with the sun behind her head but, yet again, I’m either getting and using reflectors or moving into the realm of off-camera flash.
So we shot at home, in the snow, in the little bit of sun that we had left.

I made the mostly SOOC version (crop and ‘eye spike’), a Black and White, and this; which I simply call “Desatch”. I convert the B/W and drill the opacity to around 60%.
Nice to have you back Jules.

02.04.11 Pipes and Signs (4/365)

I work on the seventh floor of a seven story building. Our stairwell goes up one more floor and I’ve tried more than once to get out the door step out on to the roof. No luck. Locked door. But I have always loved the color of these pipes, how clean it is in this area, and these little signs.
