Exploring Negative Space

While on a recent hike along the shore of Lake Superior, I saw a sky and lake worth capturing with the idea of using negative space to illustrate the the vastness of Lake Superior. The clouds added an extra dimension to the surface of the lake, with the distant lighthouse added for scale. Cropping gave the image a painterly look.

Autumn Trickle

A dry summer has kept most local streams to just a trickle. But, with a background such as this, the trickle is a minor part of the composition.

A Gallery of Images From the West

After a week on the road capturing images from the Oregon coast to Minnesota, I have created a gallery of photos on my website.  Rather than creating the same gallery on my blog, here is the link to the site: http://northernvisionsmedia.com/?page_id=2727

Bubble Gallery

A few more from my stay at home photo projects.  So far, the biggest issue I am having is to get the lighting just right.  But, as these images show, the effort is worth it.

Bubbles on the Brain

Photographing bubbles has been on my bucket list for quite some time.  A few days ago my order of glycerine arrived and I mixed up a batch of soap and went to work.  I’m still working on the lighting, but am pleased with the results so far.  Looking forward to perfecting my setup as I go.
