Re: Kitchen knife

I really like the last image of the two knives on the black slate, my only thought for improvement would be to use a large strip box rather than a round light behind a scrim to create the lateral highlight. The way it stands you have a definitive circle over the blades but the dimension of the handl...

Re: Canadian Geese In Flight

Impressive images. Almost feels like like your flying right there with them. These shots came from a unique opportunity. Here in this part of Colorado Waterfowl hunting is a big deal and most times when you see the geese in the air they are way up there to stay out of range of the pass shooters. In...

Re: Loveland Feed and Grain

The front side is nice as a historical shot showing the present and the past, but the back is where the beauty is. S- Well the whole place is amazing. I have spent the last couple years working as the caretaker of the building and wish they would allow me to display the interior images I have done ...

Re: How I've Spent 2 Years & All My $

I would say it is a very worthy investment. The after picture is postcard beautiful. Good job on the photo and the renovation

Thanks Ernst, I hit a wall with boring corporate full face posing so I always add in some more obscure poses these days. I know you can relate

Canadian Geese In Flight

Tis the season for the southern migration of geese and here in Northern Colorado we are the recipients of millions of both greater and lesser Canadian Geese.

Re: Cormorant Madness

Intriquing image of a great natural event. When I used to fish out of San Diego the harbor and boat docks would always have huge numbers of Cormorants hanging out on them. I never saw them flock like this though. I think I get where you were going with the post on this one but think it is off just a...

The Attorney

A quick client head shot for a magazine article about this attorney.

The lighting used was similar to the lighting I described in Ducks self portrait thread

Re: City Elk

I've been lucky enough to see the males just in Estes Park and a herd of females further into Rocky Mountain National Park. They are magnificent! S- They are magnificent animals indeed. I live 30 minutes away from Rocky Mountain National Park and am fortunate to be able to see them year round. In g...
