I recently found about a new DIY filter that produces some interesting results (from other photographers!). It turns out, if you put a piece of welding glass in front of your lens, it acts as a very affordable neutral density filter. Basically, you can shoot in daylight while doing long exposures. I’ve heard this looks Read More
This weekend I took a trip up to the Amarillo/Canyon area to visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park. The clouds were out in full force and they really make my photos look a lot better. The wind, however, was a constant battle. It had to be gusting around 20-30mph all day long.
Another one of our adventures this past Saturday was out to Gose City, TX. It’s pretty close to Holliday, TX, and it was an oil town back in the early 1920’s.
My parents took me out to a few places this past Saturday. They’d seen this old wooden watertower that they believe was from the 1920’s or 1930’s.
I was driving home on 4/11/10 after a concert and was able to catch this cool sunset. I especially like the “Eye in the Sky.”
A friend of mine asked me to take her kiddo’s picture so they could have a few pictures for Easter. It was a tough shoot since: a) I only shoot landscapes/non-living things, and b) he’s a little over 1 year old. I was getting free food out of the deal, plus it would give me Read More
I went out today, back home in Wichita Falls, TX, to take some pictures for PhotoSaturdays. It was around 4:30pm, and I got some good lighting thanks to the setting sun. I still can’t believe it’s setting so soon.
I’ve seen lots of photos that look like this: After doing a little searching, I figured out that it’s steel wool. A few friends and I went out in the country to test it out. A pack of steel wool is around $3 at Lowe’s. You can’t get entertainment much cheaper than that!
I hit up two semi-ghost towns this weekend: Barstow and Toyah. Both are near Pecos, TX, and both are what I would call semi-ghost towns. People still live here, but for the most part, the towns are full of run down and abandoned buildings/houses. People in both towns didn’t seem to mind a photographer walking Read More
Last night I woke up at 2:15am. Wide awake. I layed in bed until 3am, and decided enough was enough. I got on the computer a little bit, but then decided to go take photos of the stars. Midland is extremely quiet at 3:15am, almost like a ghost town. I headed to my usual spot Read More
