Photos at Watson Studio Gallery

I have three photos in the IR Dreaming exhibit at Watson Studio Gallery in Johnson City. The exhibit features 53 infrared images from 34 different artists. It runs September 26th through October 24th, 2009. I hope you can drop by the gallery. Here I am with Carol Watson, Gallery Director. We’re standing next to my photo of clouds and tufas from Mono Lake, California, which won honorable mention!

Fall Color in Colorado

AspensClick Images to Enlarge

I’ve just returned from a week in Colorado.

I enjoyed…

  • visiting great friends,
  • great weather,
  • the peak of fall color of the aspens.

A mountainside of beautiful fall color is a wonderful thing, but my “traditional portraits” of the aspens just weren’t exciting me.

So my friend Micaela and I walked into the forest a few yards.  I aimed the camera up.  And down.  I slowed the shutter speed.  I overexposed.  I underexposed.  I twisted the camera during the exposures.

I was having fun with my camera. And I finally felt creative. Let me know what you think.
