Have You Been Inspired Lately?

Still Life

For a few weeks I was lacking the inspiration to go shooting. I had that mindset that I’ve been to these places so many times, what the hell am I going to shoot? Nothing but the same….

Well this feeling quickly left me after watching a few posts by Joel Grimes. He was posting about a new endeavor, photographing still life. He showed an amazing grid of flowers. Specifically nine shots of vibrant flowers arranged in a grid. My first reaction was wow! It was gorgeous. A variety of floral arrangements with bright, complimentary backgrounds.

My second reaction was- that’s got to be hard to photograph those “fake” flowers and make them so lifelike. I began to study each arrangement and thought that I might be able to pull it off. It can’t be that expensive to obtain a few flowers, right?

Finally I had to think about my photoshop skills and did I have the ability to pull it off in post? I gave it a shot and now I’m starting a series of fine art still lifes.

Here is one of my first five produced…… I really like it!

I’ve done a bunch of binge watching of photoshop videos on blending and layers and grouping and that has helped quite a bit.

This is available for print in a variety of sizes. Please contact me if your interested in improving the decor in your home. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, I’m glad I found inspiration in Joel’s creation, thanks Joel!

All Things Nautical…

_MG_0614Another of the wonderful ships at Penns Landing in Philadelphia

Meet the Moshulu, a square rigged ship built in 1904 that has literally been all over the world map. Since coming to Philly in 1975 it is regarded as one of the best restaurants in Philadelphia.

This shot was taken just before sun-up which really accentuated the sky in the background. I worked to find the correct color temperature in Lightroom and once I found it the color popped. I may be going back to this location in a few weeks with some fine photographers over at the New Jersey Photographer community on Google+. Check us out.
