I’m still at it. Here is a photo from day 124. More to come.

Shooting On A Cloudy Day


I enjoy shooting in Sunlight but there are occasions when that’s not possible. I had the opportunity to shoot in a flower garden with my photograph partner Shelly Booker. Due to a bad weather forecast, we decided to shoot before the weather damage the flowers that were in bloom.  So, as we say in the film industry “fix it in post,” I created a new preset in Adobe Lightroom to give the photo a brighter look as opposed to the flat look I got from shooting on a cloudy day.

Heading Towards The Halfway Point


Just finished the 100th day of my challenge and I hope you got to see the highlight video and if not, click here. I’m currently working my way towards the halfway point of my challenge and in the process of looking for more things to learn. This weekend gave me the opportunity to learned patience and in the process was able to capture these Blue Birds feeding.

It’s The Colors of Spring Part 3 (Part 1)


Day 92 of my “52 Week, 365 Day Photo/Video Challenge” and we continue with “The Colors of Spring Part 3.” The photos in this series were taken at the Sara P. Duke Gardens in Durham, NC. It is such a beautiful place and so much to shoot, I have to go back to shoot the other half of the park to finish part 3 of this segment. So for that reason, Part 3 will be posted in two parts with this being Part 1.
