52:14 I Quiet Spring Day

gservo-1760140412The temperatures have been getting warmer, here in NJ. This led to a nice and warm weekend. This also led me to wake up early on a Saturday morning and go out for some peaceful photography. With a Nikon 105mm 2.8D Macro Lens and a 2x Teleconverter on my D700. I laid in the morning grass. I was in the quiet of the morning. There was no one around so I did not look like too much of an idiot to others. I have been wanting to work on my macro. I was shooting at a high ISO and hand-held. Next time I’ll carry a desk top tripod to make a sharper image. I may use a closeup filter as well. The morning with the dew on the grass. is a perfect time. It was also a perfect shot for my “The One Aperture Challenge” . I took a few shots but this was one of my favorites. I found satisfaction with this attempt. There is nothing like manually focusing in the morning. (more…)

52:11 After Some Distraction

gservo-1270140322It’s been insane here in NJ. The weather has been drunk and winter has been trying to keep its grasp on us. It’s not working out though and spring is slowly trying to make its way back. I created the images for this week, almost a week ago. My productivity has been derailed by and issue in my life that is now ending. It’s left me distracted. So here I am finally getting to this weeks 52 post. There images were from a shoot I was @Henchtog on. It was for a dojo in South Jersey.  For this weeks “The One Aperture Challenge” I chose to throw on an ND filter set the camera to f11 and get this long exposure . I rushed it, but the image came out OK. When your are a Henchtog the job come first creativity second. Anyhooo some post work later I had my image.

52:10 Winter will not end.

gservo-1147140308

It’s has been a long winter. It has gone on far too long. I want to be out doling landscapes of green, alas we still have snow here in NJ. I needed to do some different for the Photos. The mini me’s wanted to go for a ride. So I decided on the great swamp. I was holding out for the spring but could not hold out any longer. The one bisect challenge was done at an open bird watching field , there were few birds out of course. I had my Nikon D700 with a grip along with my Nikon 18-35. It was a simple kit for a simple day. I have also been shooting portrait/vertically.  When I shoot for others I mostly have to be in landscape . So I decided to make a change for my personal work.  (more…)

52:3 – Pirate Bear In The City Of Itenerant People

GServo-20140115-0652It was a nice January Day in New York, the city of itinerant people. I had gone photo-walk-about for an entire day. While out I decided to get my Week 3 ’52’images done. I wanted the “One Object Challenge” to be epic. In my mind it is. Central park was the back drop. This is something I really wanted to do for this project , at least once. Titus the Grizzly did no know what to expect. He heard “concrete jungle” and came prepared. (more…)

Sakura 2013, with my friends

20130417Gservo-1387-2

It’s funny, before my photography life  Sakura, or cherry blossoms  just represented spring time to me. I never really focused on it. I just acknowledged the beginning of spring. Now It’s a big deal, something great to photograph. This recent winter beat me down. The cold lasted too long. So as it warmed up and my Friend Daryl Meek called and said lets photo walk amongst the cherry blossoms, I was ready. Scott Wyden, was dragged along, smiling with a tripod. We traveled to Newark’s Branch Brook Park and the fun began.
