Starting our day at the beach. 😁. It’s worth getting up early to avoid the summer crowds. My son and I had Boogie Board races for an hour and a half. I’m pooped! 🤣

A little piece of Shem Creek Park. If I can find a leading line or curve in nature...I'm compelled to utilize it.
Have a great week all!

Motion Blur on the iPhone

Enjoy my latest Youtube video on the app I used to create the motion wave image from a week ago. I've created a number of images with this app and have shared it with students who have also enjoyed it a ton. I used 2 apps in particular and they're both a LOT of fun to experiment with. I hope you find it useful and I'd love to see your results.

If you've visited my personal profile lately, you know that my son participated in an Aviation Camp. It was only ONE Day but he was able to take off in a Cessna and I was able to ride in the back. This was one of the few "non-shaky" images I managed to get. It was a bumpy ride but he did an amazing job and I'm so proud of him.
You can see the medical district of downtown Charleston as well as the James Island Connector.

Waves are so dynamic! I love how each and every one is different! But when waves, foam, and nice sky come together…I’m particularly pleased! ☺️

Cypress gardens SC. Texture applied in post.
I love the character of these trees. They can be a bit overwhelming and chaotic. When presented with this type if scene, I like to concentrate on the smaller sections…looking for patterns, lines, curves, and structure.

Photo-Bombing Fire Flies on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There were thousands of them. All the specs in the trees were fireflies. Only when they came particularly close to my lens did they leave a long streak. Big dipper toward the right side.

Boone Fork trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We were fortunate to have a few clouds to reduce contrast in this forest scene. I love it when conditions work out for my students to get great images.

Experimenting with shutter speeds can be so much fun. For a more surreal look, I chose a longer shutter speed to blur the water.

Several evenings of drawing on the iPad. Marsh scene...just my own creation, not based on any of my photos.
I challenged myself to only use a couple brushes...the oil paint brush to draw, and the dry brush to blend it.
Have a great weekend all!

Going through images from this spring...I really liked the waves splashing on the rocks. We didn't get the sun shining through as much as we would have wanted...at least when the tide was still high enough to get splashes...so I added some rays with Luminar. I think it makes the image a lot better. More life.

Can we say OLD SCHOOL! 🤣🤣🤣. This is how I learned Photography. A correspondence course through the New York Institute of Photography.
I sent projects(on film) to NY, and they commented on tape and sent them back. Lengthy process. 🤪
How did you learn photography?
