So now to I am completely caught up. Hooray GOOO Me!
November 7th- On the seventh day there was black and white photography…oh how thankful I am for thee. I have always been a fan of black and white photographs even back in my film days. One of the things I love is how there are no colors to distract you from the purpose the photograph. Whether the subject is a portrait, landscape or architectural. You see all the little details that are sometimes lost in a color photograph.
So you can see the difference…the same image in color as in black and white.
November 8th – I am thankful for Color photographs today. They have a unique quality that is all their own if done properly. Just like with black and white photogrpahy there is a no one size fits all. The settings in the camera as well as the settings in your favorite program are what makes a GREAT color photograph. You have to look and see what you would like in a color photograph. So here is some of the many photographs that I love.
November 3 – I am thankful for my Nikon cameras and Nikkor lenses! I must say that I appreciate this company for making quality cameras and lenses. This equipment makes it possible for me to create stunning images to share with the world. I am thankful that this company produces excellent equipment that allows me to be able to do something I love.
So I have decided to blog about something I am thankful for every day. I also wanted to base this around my photography. I am a day behind so I will post one for yesterday and then one for today.
November 1 – I am thankful for my very supportive family and friends. Words can not express how thankful I am for these wonderful people in my life. These are the people that push me to the next level in my photography. They believe in me, and appreciate my “eye”. They help me in my time of need with kinds words and inspiring ideas. I love you all, and I am so extremely thankful to have these great people in my life. These three little ones mean the world to me.
November 2 – My wonderful clients who trust me to photograph their families and capture the “moments” that I hope they will treasure forever. I am thankful that you have chosen me to be your photographer.
I have to admit that I was pretty excited to be contacted by the Federal Office of Probation and Pretrial. They told me that they liked my black and white photograph of the Capitol dome. They were interested if I had any of the older U.S. Court House. I didn’t but told them I was willing to go take some. So one picture lead to two, and then why not three. So that is where I went to the new United States Court House and took some photographs of it. I realized that I had other pictures that I just hadn’t posted publicly on my website. So I moved those thinking WOW this is a trend maybe someone would like another photograph. So that is what lead to them wanting the 4th photograph. That is when I got to thinking WOW my photographs would be on display in a FEDERAL office building. Who wouldn’t just about jump over the moon with excitement. It look almost everything I had not to post it like EVERYWHERE. I didn’t keep it a complete secret, so I told a few people. So the following are the photographs that were purchased and soon to be on display at the United States Court House on Lafayette Street across from the Missouri State Penitentiary.
The photograph of the Capitol dome is on display right now at the Art Bazaar in Downtown Jefferson City.
Before going to take this photograph, I never noticed that the columns are only on two sides of the building.
I have to say I love this building more and more. There are so many details that you are just unable to see until you get close up to it.
I have to say this is one of my favorites. I love the colors from the sunset. This photograph is on display at Capital Arts until September 22. Which is tomorrow, but I will be moving it to The Art Bazaar if you would like to take a look at it in person. That is if it hasn’t sold. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this photographs. Happy Hump day!
I wanted to share with everyone my latest photographs that are on display for the Photography exhibit at Capital Arts in Jefferson City, MO. I love to be able to mat and frame my photographs to give that complete finished look. It is just amazing to be able to take my photograph and vision and see it hanging on a wall.
I decided to call this one “Vintage Ride”. I loved the front grill and how the door was open. It was sort of like it was inviting me in.
What drew me in for this photograph was how I captured the the moment of the horse and man charging into the battlefield. This photograph was taken at the First Battle of Boonville.
I call this photograph “Morning Dew” because how damp it was at Jefferson Expansion Memorial that morning. You can see the spiderweb on flower also when you look at the photograph.
“Always Poised” came out so amazing I love how the clouds are so detailed.
I rented a wide angle lens to be able to take in the whole Capitol. I love great architecture and this is GREAT architecture.
This is another one of my favorite photographs I have taken lately. The sky was so blue and the details of the arch were great. This is a must see in person.
I love cars because there are soooo many little details you capture.
This photograph came out so great on canvas. This is a giclee canvas print. I have had it hanging in my house for almost a month. I am just so smitten with it.
So these are the 8 photographs that I have on exhibit. Please go check them out if you have a chance. They are at Capital Arts is at 1203 Missouri Blvd., Jefferson City, MO.
I also have a booth at the Art Bazaar in downtown Jefferson City, MO.
