December 5, 2006| Van Window Reflection | 1 comments

I saw this in the windshield of a van parked out on our street. I grabbed my camera and the owner was no in the car preparing to leave. Maybe that gives it some context, but I think it might have been better without the driver. I'm not sure what I think of it, but it did look interesting so I thought I would share.

Pottery maker from Portland Saturday Market. I had trouble exposing him and his hands in the same photo because his work light was so very bright. I thought I'd try putting the two photos together to tell a story of his art.

January 16, 2006| Taylor Eyes | 2 comments

I took many photos on our holiday trip to see our families, most of which didn't turn out to be worth sharing. My niece Taylor is very photogenic and cute as can be. I was doing a lot of indoor shots on this trip and tried doing some bounce flash. Unfortunately i think I had some settings wrong on the flash and many of them came out under exposed. Fortunately the Canon 5D seems to do really well with noise even at ISO 1600. However, when I corrected exposure in Adobe Camera RAW a lot of noise cropped up from the shadows. So, there is more noise in the photos than is probably acceptable. But anyway, I like her pose here and how sharp her eyes are.

May 23, 2004| Clarendon Metro | 7 comments

I think Washington D.C. has one of the most attractive metro systems in the Unites States. Not only are the trains kept clean, the stations themselves seem well designed and attractive. This photograph is of the Clarendon Metro station. The view down the hall is unobstructed so you can get a good feel for the architecture of the place. One thing I just realized after uploading this photo was that I shot this at 1/10 second shutter hand held. I'm surprised it came out crisp at all considering how shakey my hands can be.
