This is some of my work. During our portfolio exchange someone asked if I had any pictures of birds while they are flying so here are some to share.
John is actually the guy that got me into photography. Years ago when I was living in Costa Rica teaching ESL he and a friend showed up one day looking to photograph tropical birds. I have been exploring the mountains a lot and decided to show them where I had been and seen many of the birds on their to see list. My desire to photograph birds was born then. John is a super cool guy and is always able to answer the questions I have.
Can honestly say I had never seen or thought about this idea before. But what does a dog look like when it is underwater diving after something? Seth’s new series of images showing just that are really impressive.
Mike is a local sports photographer from based in Bellingham. He has been featured in numerous sports publications and on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Pretty cool to see a local guy making it big.
Takashi is a modern day photographer creating daguerreotype images. The images produced by this process are pretty amazing, and I really like the old time feel that they give. The fact that people are still using this process is pretty impressive considering the dangers that come with it. I mean mercury vapors don’t sound to safe to me, though I am sure there are lots of new technologies to minimize exposure.
This artist is making a name for himself in the world of HDR. A lot of the images I see today, including my own attempts at making images in HDR, seem to be to cartoonish and unreal looking. Trey has found a way to make images that are just a faction past real. The results he is able to get are pretty impressive. He was the first photographer to have their HDR images hung at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC.
I ran across this landscape artist the other day. I am really drawn to his work. He mainly uses 8×10 or larger to photograph landscapes. There are videos that feature him and show the darkroom that he works in, pretty impressive setup to enlarge these huge negatives.
