Daddy’s little girl

In March of 2009 my nephew, who was in the National Guard, was deployed to Iraq. We went to Milledgeville, GA for their send off. I took alot of photos but I think this one was the most telling one of them all. When I downloaded the images to my computer and saw this image I knew I had to do something with it. The image below is what I came up with and I posted it to my nephew’s Facebook page.

The wife of the man and girl in the photo saw it and requested a copy. I was more than happy to send it off for them to have while their loved one was overseas.


Avoid Disappointing the Bride and Groom With a Wedding Shot List

I know some of my classmates are interested in wedding photography and I found this article to be very interesting. Hope you will too. Brought to you by Spectrum Photography Tips.

When photographing a wedding, you could be obtaining the most beautiful, artistic shots, but you’ll never be forgiven if you miss something the bride really wanted – even if it’s as seemingly inconsequential as a picture of her and a distant cousin. That’s why it’s important to go over a wedding shot list with the bride and groom before the big day.

Here is a photo from a previous class

The assignment was to retouch a photo. I decided to take a close up shot of a corn on the cob and then paint individual kernels. I was going for the effect of indian corn with a pastel tone since the corn was not dry.


Top 10 Misconceptions about Photography and the Law

Provided by Attorney Carolyn E. Wright.

1. You don’t need permission to photograph a work of art that is in a public area.
This rule is based on copyright law. United States Copyright Law grants exclusive rights to the copyright owner of a creative work, including the rights to: reproduce the copyrighted work; prepare derivative works based on the copyrighted work; distribute copies of the copyrighted work to the public; and/or display the image. (See 17 USC §106.)

When those rights are infringed the copyright owner is entitled to recover damages suffered as a result of the infringement. (See 17 USC §504). So even when a creative work is in a public area you may photograph it only if the work is in the public domain or your photograph makes a fair use of the work.

Where in the world

The sails forming the shell give the tower an ever-changing and vibrating silhouette that reflects the quick-paced change of the city surrounding it. During the day, these sails serve as efficient sunshades. At dusk they slowly open up, like night flowers blooming, to collect dew from the air during the night. At dawn, when the first rays of the sun appear again, the sails retract back to their closed position. The water collected will serve for the daily usage of the tower and its visitors. A new cycle starts over. The vibration of the sails also serves as a source of natural energy through the piezo-electric effect. Thus, like a living organism, the tower follows the alternating cycles of nature and draws its resources from it. This tower mixes various references to the history and culture of the city of Dubaï with a strong concern for sustainability  into a coherent structure that owes as much to history and tradition than to the newest technologies.
