A Day in the Sun

Gracie and Reagan. These two cousins are best friends and (along with parental permission) agreed to be my subjects so that I could test out my new DSLR. It was a warm sunny day. We went down by Lynches River and did some on location portrait work. The girls also suggested some shots at a local nursery nearby before changing into their play clothes to enjoy some time in the mud down by the local pond. I think I ended up with a total of 180 images this summer as I ran the Canon Mark II through its paces. Thank you to Gracie & Reagan for posing! Gracie – Dark Hair | Reagan – Blonde Hair

Father & Daughter

Late October, 2016 found me responding to a father/daughter on-location shoot. Gracie and Robbie were lot’s of fun and we even had a little time to capture some images of them in the great outdoors on their favorite four wheeler. Images captured at their home at Coward, SC. Thanks to Robbie and Gracie for allowing me to post some images of their on-location portrait session.

Creative in Charleston

Different environments can do strange things to the eye of a photographer. I was visiting Charleston, S.C. It was a hot, humid, and overcast day. There was something in the air down there. It was very bright and hazy. My creative eye kicked into high gear. I seemed drawn to shadows and lines like I have never been before. My exposure meter was going bananas and I finally just ignored the meter and set to manual. I was breaking many of the standard rules of photography, (taught in my classroom) primarily composition and exposure, but I just didn’t give a damn. Heck! I was on vacation and enjoying every minute of my adventures in the southeastern US. Here are a few of the fair to good shots. They appear interesting. At least they did at the time. 😉
