Picture Of The Day - "Port of Tampa At Night"

A photographer friend of mine and I decided that we wanted to practice night photography. Tampa is a great place for it, but we couldn't decide where to go. We drove all over the Harbour Island and Channelside area looking for the "right" spot. Just before the sun started to set, we decided on a location on the back side of Davis Island. It was very quiet there. We could see the tall buildings of downtown Tampa starting to light up and our tripods and cameras were set and ready to go. But another area was catching my attention. It didn't look all that "pretty" when we first got there. But as the night was setting in, I began playing with different shutter speeds to see what I could get on the other side of the water. Using a Nikon 70-300 lens on my D70 I was able to watch ships being cleaned and worked on. Steam was coming up all over the place. Every now and then a tug boat would cruise by. At the end of the night, this was one of my favorite shots.

Picture Of The Day - "Beyond The Red Curtain"

What secrets are hidden behind our red curtains? How many dreams are waiting to be explored? Can we handle the truth?

My First Online Wedding Portfolio

This past Sunday, I finished uploading the second wedding I have photographed. The first one was a couple years ago before I actually had a website. So, this is the first online wedding portfolio for me.

What a great time I and my second shooter (Nancy, called herself "sniper") had. This is just the slideshow from the reception. This was such a fun group of people to be around, and you couldn't help but feel their happiness with them. Visit my website to see the other two galleries for the Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner the day before and the Ceremony. Hope you enjoy!

Picture Of The Day - "You're Making Me Dizzy!"

How long can YOU stare at the center of this? I love playing around with fractal images. Sometimes, you can come up with some very interesting creations.

Picture Of The Day - "Rocky Waterfall"

A walk in your local zoo presents opportunities for photography other than just animals. Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, FL, has several waterfalls that are beautiful.
