Giana, Shan-Ken, Angel, Vicky and of course Vivienne!

Giana is totally cute!
Our friends Shan-Ken, Angel and grandma visited us today and we've all got to meet this sweet 4 weeks old little gal.
Vivienne was totally shocked to see someone smaller than her and we had a great laugh at her reaction.
Except for one shot, all was captured with available light, the 50mm stopped down around f/1.8- f/2.2

The tulips from my backyard

I love this season and ll the colors that come with it. This early morning I went to my backyard and with the help of some very warm sun light I took this shots. I was inspired by two things. The subject and the two lenses that I used. An old Pentacon 50mm f/1.8 that came with my Praktika manual SLR and the Lensbaby Composer, a lens that is a new found love. Enjoy the shots and go out to shoot things that inspire you! Cheers

Magnolia - Spring mmmm....

I love flowers, spring, color, nature, beauty in it's most incipient raw form. Here are couple of magnolia flower shots I made this weekend in Wichita, KS.
I see people all the time asking, complaining, whining about subjects to shoot, the latest and the greatest gear.... you name it and cannot help to think that the easiest place to find inspiration for your next shoot is... right under your nose. Just look around, discover what moves you and do it. 
The last two shots can be used as an example for inspiration. They both portray the same flower. One before and one after a big wind came and swept away all those beautiful petals. If you are inspired, if you have an idea that moves you go do something about it. If you postpone/delay it might dissapear/fade just like the petals from that gracious flower. This is the beauty of photography. It encapsulates in a time bubble a certain moment in time, forever!
