Title Abstract 763bwi Sky Light Series
Category Silver B&W
Location Houston
Reason For Making the Image I enjoy taking handheld photos of municipal fireworks and seeing the amazingly different images as a result. In this case I went a step further than usual inverting the image in photoshop and then converting to black & white. This last step is based on a comment I received during a portfolio review.

Title Santa Fe Winter
Category Gold Color
Location Santa Fe, NM
Reason For Making the Image The rhythm of the Luminaries on the snow-covered ridge of the adobe building was interesting and when I found a viewpoint to frame the window with them, was exciting. However, photographing this composition under the colorful awning from the other side of the street, made the image in-balance and pop.

Title Country Churches
Category Gold Color
Location Woodville, TX
Reason For Making the Image The juxtaposition of the hymnals and nearby highway created an obvious and complementary contextual link. At the same time, the urgency of the passing automobile was a sharp contrast to the simplicity and stillness of the little church. This was emphasized by the car’s vivid color and subdued tones of the church’s interior.
Camera Canon 60D
Lens Tamron 10-24 at 10mm

Reason For Making the Image I captured this photo of a “Great Horned Owl” at the Sims Bayou Urban Nature Center.  My objective was to get a close-up image that highlights the owl’s personality and serious stare, as well the interesting details, color, and texture of its face.
