Summer Mornings

 

I have been making an effort to get out and take more photographs as of late. I’m also still working out my lighting setup for portraits.

It was a very wet spring season here in Northern Illinois and many of the local farmers were not able to plant field corn this year. This is one of the small fields just on the outskirts of the town I live in. I have been planing on taking photos here for quite some time.

Another Tomato

I had one tomato left from the last post. Today I used an off-camera flash. I’m still toying with how I’m going to set up my shoot. I spent quite a bit of time getting the still-life set just right.

Tomatoes

I’ve decided to do some portrait work, and thought I should work out my light setup. These unsuspecting tomatoes were my first victim.

Although it is a little cold now, it has been a pretty mild winter. I was quite surprised to see ice this thick along the river’s edge this past weekend.Enjoy!

This weekend I had some time to get out and take some photos for the first time in a while. I plan on making an effort to post on a more regular basis starting today. I also ordered some lights and a back drop so that I could do some portrait work. Enjoy and have a great day!

White Wildflower

I see these white wildflowers occasionally during the summer. I have yet to take the time to identify them. Sometimes I like to just look at the flowers and not take up a lot of time searching to find their proper names. Enjoy!
