Infrared film

Having shot Kodak 35 mm infrared film for over ten years now, I was always amazed at how the heat and light created such beautiful images. Cool weather, however, gives a much more surreal look to the landscape. The sky in most instances is much darker, and the clouds just have that extra "pop" to them. My trip to Blue Cypress Lake a few weekends ago proved just that. It must have been in the 40's that morning, my fingers a bit numb. The results were more than worth it. Take a look at a sample.

I went to see the movie Avatar last night. It had quite a message to it. The natives to another planet had a true connection to all plant life. The tree of life sustained them, and healed them. People of planet Earth, however, needed a valuable mineral found on their planet, and plundered this planet, destroying its plant and tree life. Sound familiar? I recommend everyone see this movie.

I met a Creative Writer yesterday evening at a reading party. I showed her one of my portfolio books to see if she would be interested in collaborating on a book with me. We'll get together at the first of the year and start brainstorming. Looking forward to yet another chapter in my life.

New work to be posted soon.

My two latest excursions to Blue Cypress Lake and Riverbend Park resulted in some wonderful images, bot color and black & white(infrared). Because of digital, color is becoming more prevalent in my work. I'm also working more with color film to see the difference. No matter what, I want my work to be pleasing to the eye. I'll post one image here from Blue Cypress Lake.

Advertising, search engines, and what not

I have invested money in my business in hopes of giving it a jump start. New brochures, an e-mail blast, and search engine optimization. Over 8,000 hits on my website today. Now lets see some results.
