Selfie is a four-letter word

For some reason there seems to be an acceptance that every image focused on the maker ever created in the history of artistic image-making must now be thrown into this single and greatly demeaning heading.

Nighttime Photography with a Flashlight

Nocturnal light painting with a flashlight is a way to make sure that the important subject details are illuminated in the final rendition.

A Grande Shade – Save those coffee thingies!

Most of you probably throw these things away. Found in nearly every coffee joint, they can be useful right when you need them. I keep a few of them in my camera bag just in case.

Dirkon – The Paper Pinhole Camera

Personally, I find the HOLE idea, (excuse the pun) absolutely amazing. Pinhole is magical in that it requires no sensor, no mechanical parts and no lens. While it is possible to use a pinhole in place of a lens on a digital camera to take pinhole images, a tiny hole in a simple box with a piece of light sensitive material inside is far more impressive.

The Light of Darkness – Nighttime HDR

HDR used incorrectly can produce some terrible photography. However, in my opinion, when it is used well, the images it can produce are pretty amazing.

This is a poster that I created for the WPPD event.
