Upper Deck

The view straight down from my office window to the top level of a big garage, about 18 floors down.

WHAT BLOGS I'M RECOMMENDING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: Strobist, the bottomless font of knowledge for those of us who use small flashes rather than studio lights - more possibilities than you ever imagined. They had a feature a couple of days ago about Drew Gardner, a photographer of enormous creativity, humor and technical skill. He's started a blog, Photography - The Dark Art. Check out his professional web site, too. You will enjoy it. I met Gardner a few summers back at the Maine Photography Workshops and have enjoyed his work ever since.

TOMORROW: patterns on the wall.

Now we know what you are doing when you are SUPPOSE to be WORKING! It is a cool image. I can see you fighting with yourself all day trying not to whip out the camera, but losing the battle in the end.

What I need is a website and a guru that deals with teeny pop up flashes. Now that's some information I could use. said...

fabulous photo!

I really like this, I'm wondering how much was cropped away to get this affect.

I am off to Paris. Who is going to keep you in line while I'm gone? I'm a bit nervous. I WILL be checking to see what's up! Can't wait to see what you've found while I'm gone!

This proves my point, it's not the camera, but the photographer that makes the image. Seemimgly ordinary scene becomes an artisitc image in the right hands.
