Re: He's Got the Whole World in His Hand

Trivia question: What kind of lens is Bob holding in his hand? No cheating... I'll give the answer below. A biconvex lens. This type of lens has a convex surface on two sides, where the light enters (the subject side) and where the light leaves (the sensor side). Actually, it's not ...

A different kind of Christmas image, but the wish is still the same ....... Merry Christmas to All!

And the strong silent ones began to talk

Lyrics from "Spontaneous Apple Creation", the Crazy World of Arthur Brown. If you remember this, then you are familiar with psychedelic worlds (still some of my favorites).

Re: Lighting the Way

Nice, but a little cluttered. There is no central focus. The candles are pulling too much of the attention away fromt the statuette. Are you up for a challenge? I really like that candle holder in the background, the one you use as your avatar. It plays really nicely into the theme of Jack Frost tr...

Lighting the Way

I'm not sure if candles qualify for still-life renditions, as they almost seem alive in their movement. But they DO provide the most beautiful soft lighting, falling off quite naturally into the background.

The subject is super fascinating and I would be forced to try to photograph it. I am not sure this is its most effective angle, and it would benefit f...

Paredoilia - Alien Lambling

Post Thanksgiving - cruising around the hood with camera in hand. This was a barren tree trunk (probably a Crepe Myrtle), but I see an alien creature crouching on the ground. I wonder what you might do to an image like this to bring out whatever critter you might imagine. I suspect this image would ...
