Night Bloom

I’ve read a few times in various articles that you should always “shoot the light” rather than the subject. I think it’s probably better to find a happy medium, but there’s a lot of truth to the advice. During the day, this flower never impressed me. (It’s at the entrance to my building complex.) But […]

Fuzzy Shoreline

This was taken on the north shoreline of a long strip of land that juts into Lake Erie from Cullen Park in Toledo. For a good while now, Lake Erie (at least on the Toledo end) has been having issues with algae blooms, to the point of becoming poisonous. One of the times I visited […]

Finding Light

Many times, simplicity is the key. What I like about this picture is the simplicity, combined with the angle (looking up from underneath a bit rather than down.) I’m often a fan of the blurred (bokeh) background as well.  Download: Finding_Light-Asgard_Photography_IMG_4622.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/22 Exposure: 1/250 seconds ISO: 1600 Focal Length: 250mm 

Flower Faces

One of the benefits to keeping pictures that were taken years earlier, is that you learn a lot about editing over time. This photo was taken in Saline back in 2016 and I’d passed over it at the time. But with some creative cropping and better editing knowledge I was able to make something with […]

Slow Spring

Not entirely sure why, but this is one of my favorite trees at the Kensington Metropark in Michigan. (It’s on the South end of the path around the main lake where the nesting island is.) I recently took a trip there to get my season pass. I think what I like about this image is […]

Roots & Water

I’ve ended up focusing on this corner a few times, while visiting the remains of the Canal Locks in Maumee’s Side Cut Park. Depending on the previous rainfall, you can get some interesting shots of the man-made waterfalls at several spots, but I really like the combination of the green and roots and water. Download: […]

Green Shadows

I really like sunset shooting because of the contrast you can get with shadows. Though, on this one I spent way too much time fiddling with the coloring, especially the sky, to try to get it how I liked. Shooting in raw mode really helps with options when you’re back at your computer! Download: Green_Shadows-Asgard_Photography_IMG_0943.jpg […]
