I say the silliest things to her…

On another note, the artificial and mixed back-lighting, and the reflections off the red walls, in this scene are very challenging.  Yet, with the proper pre-processing (a term I believe I coined) and post-processing, the technical issues are mostly overcome.

I know that there will be a few individuals who will insist that I should have used flash, but I vehemently disagree:  the spontaneity and ambiance would have been lost.

I’d feel differently if I was trying to produce a formal portrait — but I wasn’t.



Frames, revisited.

I’m thinking: “Don’t drop my camera”.

Here I am on the receiving end of my own Leica M-E, courtesy of Nick Devlin.

Nick was checking out my gear yesterday.  He doesn’t realize it yet, but he’s been re-infected with Leica Fever.

It’s kind of like Saturday Night Fever, but with more dancing — if you know what I mean.

(There is no cure, my friend.)


Don't drop my camera

I’m dreaming of a white dumpster…

(with apologies to Irvin Berlin)

This is the scene outside today.

Back in December, my wife placed two red bows (not pictured) on the front of this charming dumpster.

Happy New Year.

Onward and upward for 2015…

‘Twas the night before Christmas.

And the children were tracking Santa.

Merry Christmas to All.


'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Technical Commentary:

The sun was quickly setting as this scene was unfolding and the the vestigial rays of light coming in through the window were creating a pink, gold, and red speckled glow on the wall behind our trio of Santa trackers.  The glow of the smartphone screen also helped set the mood.



Waiting for Santa.

Merry Christmas!
