This isn’t a particularly great picture, the only reason I’m posting is that I managed to capture a partial lunar eclipse as the sun rose over Edisto Island, SC. The […]
A silhouette of one of the trees on the boneyard beach at Botany Bay, Edisto Island, South Carolina.
Another waterfall in North Georgia that usually isn’t. Most of the time this waterfall is little more than a single spout, trickling down the rock face. As you can see, […]
After a week of non-stop rain, this little waterfall in Georgia’s Black Rock Mountain State Park, normally a trickle, actually looked fairly impressive.
This waterfall, along with the two waterfalls on Holcomb Creek make a nice loop hike with three waterfalls.
Another waterfall that I’ve tried on numerous occasions to photograph. A rainy weekend yielded nice soft light and high water to get a better results than I’ve ever had […]
A rose with some sparkling water droplets.
I’ve photographed this waterfall several times before, but have never been happy with the results. This time the water level and light were much better than they’ve ever been, and […]

While shooting at Dukes Creek Falls with my buddy Ian a few weeks ago, that golden pool of reflected sunlight caught my eye. We were deep in a gorge which […]
This is the larger waterfall on Mill Creek. It’s just down stream from the previous photo.
About a year ago, I saw another photographer that had done a long exposure of an eddy like this with the cool swirls. Since then, I’ve been looking for just […]
Yet another attempt to photography one of these tiny wild irises. I’m still not pleased with the background, but I definitely like this better than my last couple of attempts.

If you’ve seen Joseph Rossbach’s “Layers of Light”, you may see quite a few similarities between his shot and mine. The reason for that is that I was attending his […]

For the second time in as many weeks I found myself in the woods attempting to photograph wild irises. I love these little flowers, but despite shooting dozens of photos […]

28/365 Light. This is an LED flashlight that I carry with my pretty much all the time.
25/365 Blue Flower. Today’s theme was supposed to be “something you made”. but about the only thing I make other than photos is dinner, and I completely forgot to take […]

My intent at the beginning of the year was to start taking a photo a day. I did that one day, then didn’t manage to take another photo for four […]
Shooting into the sun I got wicked flare, plus there was a drop of water on my polarizer that filtered out everything but blue light. I managed to clean it […]
If you want to get good photos of waterfalls you have to be willing to get your feet wet. If you want great photos of waterfalls, you have to be […]
My dad taught me to love the outdoors and everything in it. He also bought me my first camera, and taught me how to use it to see the world […]
One of the issues I struggle with on this blog is just how many pictures from a single shoot to post. Because of the way I shoot, I often get […]

My reward for taking a picture of hiccup.
Spencer with his current favorite toy. Lately, when I try to take his picture, he insists on having me take a picture of hiccup first. Sometimes, those shots end up […]
This is actually the same shot as the one from Friday, in a sense. They were both taken in the exact same spot, with the exact same subject, and completely […]
Another from my shoot yesterday.
I finally got out to shoot again today. After spending the last few weeks working round the clock at my day job it was good to get out and shoot. […]
Minnehaha Falls in the Chattahoochee National Forest, is one of my favorite waterfalls to photograph. Because it’s so close to my mother-in-law’s house, and only a short walk from the […]
Trying to figure out the best way to use some of the isolated patches of color I found, I decided to experiment with some of the techniques I used in […]

Another in the flower impression series from the Carter Center. Incidentally, this is the only shot in this set that had any significant post processing done, all of the others […]
Yet another abstract flower shot from the Carter Center visit this weekend. I should probably name this one something to do with the red hat ladies club, due to their […]
Another shot from the Carter Center on Saturday. I still haven’t decided what to call my experiments with colors, for now I’m just calling them impressions, since my wife say […]
A friend of mine told me that there were some lovely tulips blooming at the Carter Center, so having a free day yesterday I spent part of the afternoon playing […]

I’m a big fan of color, and find myself drawn to flowers because of the intense colors nature has to display. Too often though, I’ve found that focusing on the […]
A little bit of a different take on the things to see at Callaway Gardens.
As is usually the case when shooting from my backyard there’s really not much to compose with except for a long line of roof tops and privacy fences. I need […]
A little bit of a break from the models. Sunday was a beautiful day, so I went out to see if I could find anything interesting to shoot. I didn’t […]
Another shot of me shooting in the dark, while it was still snowing, just to be sure I got some photos of it before it was gone. Incidentally, 24 hours […]
Snow is quite rare in Georgia, and when we do see some it usually doesn’t last very long. Today we got several inches, but with temperatures in the 50s expected […]
Sometimes light is unpredictable. I shot this cascade because the light around the little pool was this nice warm color. I setup the composition to catch the light, but didn’t […]
One of the only shots I got of the falls. The light wasn’t great here, as I’d arrived much later than planned due to having to hike in, and the […]
I had initially visited this area in hopes of photographing 2-3 waterfalls on this creek. Unfortunately, closed roads, an unexpected hike, and treacherous terrain meant I would have to come […]
Before this weekend it had been almost six weeks since I got out to shoot anything nature related. I finally got away and headed for the mountains to shoot some […]
One of the shots from my first wedding.
And one final shot. Grant isn’t a model, but he came with a cool hat and shades, so he had his picture taken too.
And a shot of both Ashley Marie and Clinton.
Ashley was really fun to work with and hang out with. We shot several completely goofy poses that I haven’t processed yet.
Another shot of Clinton from the shoot on Saturday.
I’ve been playing with my Christmas presents, but haven’t really shot anything worth posting until this weekend. I finally got off my butt and went to the Athens Strobist Group […]

A pewter drum ornament from my Christmas Tree.
I haven’t been out to shoot in over a week, so I decided to shoot some things around the house.
One of the cool things about sassafras trees is that they have three different shaped leaves. So I thought it would be really cool to get a photo of one […]
I didn’t get a chance to shoot any nature photos this weekend, so I’ve digging through the archives. This is one from my trip to Dukes Creek Falls in January. […]

These last two shots I don’t think are quite as good technically as the two from earlier this week, but they are a better representation of my kids’ personalities.
This is a maple tree in my front yard that has just recently started to change colors for the fall. Most of the tree is still quite green.
A shot of my daughter from our afternoon playing in the yard. Strobist: SB-600 with an Apollo micro softbox, hand held camera left at 1/2 power, triggered using Nikon CLS.

I hate the fact that I cut off her chin, but the look on her face was too good not to share.
I just noticed this is photo number 550 on invisiblegreen.com
Waterfalls seem like such an obvious place to use HDR, since it’s nearly impossible to correctly expose for the smooth water effect and still get the rest of the shot […]
This may be my last new post for a while. My camera quit working, and I don’t yet have the funds to upgrade.
Equal time for my cute kids.
More of my kids.
A shot of my kids playing together in my son’s room.
Err.. Two Tulips.
The traditional processing of the shots from Moccasin Creek wasn’t working for me, so I tried a little bit of the Orton Effect.
Another flower from Callaway Gardens.
I got bored last weekend and shot myself.
When I walked past these flowers I thought, hey that looks like a bird. Apparently, I wasn’t the only person to think so. These flowers are called Birds of Paradise.
I had intended to do a whole week of orchids, but I was getting a little bored with them. Here’s a blue daisy instead.
Another orchid at Callaway Gardens.
Some orchids I shot while taking advantage of the free admission offer at Callaway Gardens this weekend.

Another shot of just Murphy, the loggerhead sea turtle at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. Not the best shot technically, but one I like despite the flaws.
My son Spencer enjoying a trip to the Georgia Aquarium. He seemed to like the turtles the best, no matter which exhibit they were in.
Given the lack of comments last week, people either felt the black and white shots last week were unremarkable, or they were so good they left people speechless. Anyway, on […]
This week I am going to try something a little different: Black and White. This series is from Dukes Creek Falls in North Georgia.
My computer crashed last night just as I was about to re-size this for posting, and rather than wait to reboot and figure out why it crashed I decided to […]

The shot was very much an accident. Immediately before I shot it, I had switched to a longer shutter speed to try some panning shots with Spencer going down the […]

I found this apple intriguing so I took a lot shots of it, some turned out better than others. A few of them needed a little bit of extra work […]
This was shot from roughly the same location as yesterday’s shot, namely the deck of my mother-in-law’s house. Though, this one was shot early in the morning.
Another sunset over Rabun Gap, Georgia.
The apple in the center is the same apple from yesterday’s shot. This is where I found it before moving it outside for that one.
