Stairway 3

Today I share another stairway which I captured in one way and rendered in two versions.  This was shot on an iPhone in the stairway at leica camera headquarters in Germany.  I really like the way it looks and that you can’t really tell what it is.  What do you think?

Oil Cans

Another from my Seeing Double – Being Square project – Oil Cans.  I have been working on this project for years, and I am Really getting close to wanting to publish a book on these images.  It’s a series I am doing all shot on an iPhone with the Hipstamatic app and a special film and lens combo.  Where ever I go even when shooting with my larger cameras I take a minute and shoot scenes with this setup.  The image here was of oil cans found at an antique store.

Sometimes You Just Luck Out

Double Exposure. Silo City, Buffalo, NY

You have recently seen a number of images from my Silo City series.  Usually, I am shooting with one of my larger setups like a Sony or Nikon while at these locations.  However, I also do a lot of experimenting and I also use my iPhone and try out new apps.  The app this was made with is called Hipstamatic.  It allows for a different variety of double exposure looks.  I do these exposures in color and BW.  This was a color one of the grain silos from across the canal.  It just worked with the tug boats at the right spot as well as the soft look of the silos in the background.  Hope you enjoy it.

It’s Been Too Long

I have committed a terrible thing by not keeping this site up to date.  My apologies.  Things sort of got away from me and I am trying to come in for a landing after a super busy summer of teaching workshops and travel.  So, I will do my best to get things back on track staring today.

Todays’ image was made in Torre Del Pines in Argentina.  We stopped for some fuel and here was this backetball hoop attached to this beautifyl wall. It was shot with an iPhone and enhnaced using Snapseed.

Pixel

Hey, it’s my website and every now and then I will share a personal photo or two.  This is one of those days.  I present my furry friend Pixel.  She’s an incredibly lovable cat.  She gets me and I get her.  I sometimes feel like we are in tune with each other.  I got her a small sick kitten.  It was touch and go for a while but I was a big part of nursing her back to health.  We bonded really well and today she is my little and very loving cat buddy.

The Lost Church

There are so many cool things to photograph in Iceland.  One place I love is an earth covered church.  I have shot this place many times and over coffee this morning decided I’d make it look a bit different and dark.  Shot with my iPhone and then I used a few apps to get this look.  Sometimes it is just fun to play.

Pixel My Little Helper

It’s pet time.  A number of years ago I adopted a kitten on impulse.  Well, maybe not impulse.  I was visiting an animal shelter with my wife because she wanted to adopt a kitten.  She found one she liked real quick and went off to the get to know your cat room.  I was left to wander around and in one cage I saw the cutest kitten I ever saw.  She was tiny.  I asked the volunteer to let me hold the kitten.  I put the kitten in my hands and she looked at me and closed her eyes.  She had me.  I adopted her on the spot and named her Pixel. She has been bonded to me ever since.  She is quite unusual in many ways.  She is a great companion and hangs with me all the time.  Today I was working on an upcoming camera review and she decided the letter tray on my desk was a good place to take a nap.  Frankly, it just doesn’t get any better than this.   Pixel is my little buddy.

Grand Central Station

I was in NYC a few months back for the introduction of the Leica M10 camera.  After the official meetings with Leica, I was sent off with the new camera to give it a try.  It was a fun camera to shoot with and I enjoyed using it and the images from it.  However, like I do many times I always take images on my iPhone. I did a whole series of images about Being Square and Seeing Double.  Article coming soon on that project.  I also did a few Pano images.  The place is an architectural marvel so how could I resist doing some panos.  This image is one pano made there.  I’ll share more in the future.
