Fine Art Collection


Sometimes, we just see something and say to ourselves, “thats it, take the picture!”, I am not really sure why I felt that way about this image. I guess thats why our professor hands us assignments and says to just go shoot. I was standing in a parking garage for shelter from the storm, when I looked out and saw this image. The two people walking with umbrellas to keep the rain off of themselves, the strong image of the tree…it’s leaves and branches resembling the shape of the umbrellas, the lamp post and sidewalk, the heavy amounts of water on the ground, and puddles….it just said, “go ahead, take the shot”. I am hoping to come up with a name for this image, so if anyone is more connected to thier “inner artist” than I am, please send me a shout! Thanks so much for visiting!

Landscapes and Seascapes


Dawn's Early LightDawn’s Early Light
Somtimes, you just have to be there. Steaming hot coffee in hand, peace, quiet, the sounds of the surf calming the freyed ends of your nerves. The colors of of the pre dawn light change, dance, and play in the reflections of the sea, in the tidal pools on the sand, and in the playground of your mind. Each one of us is different, and for each of us the sea has it’s own meaning, it’s own beauty, it’s own sanctuary for our souls. They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder; I feel it is also in the hearts and minds of the beholden. The display before me happened without calculation for weather, tempertures with humidity, tidal calcuations…it just happened. And I was fortunate enough, to just be there.

Location: Myrtle Beach, SC USA
Equipement used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 85 1.8 prime lens, open heart, open mind, hot coffee, and patience.

Landscapes and Seascapes


Another long exposure shot of “the Boneyard” at Edisto Island, SC, USA. The sun was about to set (90 degrees camera right), the colors and emotion here were breathtaking! My senses were overhwelmed as this was the first time I had ever been to this location and was so busy trying to take in the gorgeous scenery, enjoy and savor the moments, and still concentrate on framing, focal length, iso values, aperture, and shotter speeds, along with timing the shutter to open with the long retracting waves of the ocean. For those who have never tried this…it is a daunting task! but one that is truly good for the soul.

Location: Edito Island, SC, USA

Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, Induro CT213 Tripod, Induro BHD2 ballhead, and a circular polarizing filter
