52:17 The Bridge Of Terror And The Bear In The Grass

Well…this is late again.

gservo-2584140429It’s been an awkwardly busy time in my world. The weather has been consistently decent. So it has not been the issue. The weather has actually provided some good opportunities for my photography. When I created this image for my “The One Aperture Challenge” I was out at work. This image is of the Pulaski Skyway,a four-lane bridge-causeway, in NJ. Its viewed as a death trap by many. I took this image a f11 but with a Neutral Density Filter. It was early in the morning. This meant a long exposure in a new place I could not resist. I knew I would be there so I had my Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D with me on my Nikon D700 I also had my 3 Legged Thing Brian in the car as well. It made a ultra early morning bearable. It did not take me too long to get the shot. It did take me a while to get to processing it. Time kinda got away from me. (more…)

52:12 Warmer days

gservo-1420140329It’s been a somewhat warmer week in NJ. The snow has melted. Life has been better, thing more manageable. Walking down the street has not been a challenge. Walking in the woods has been less of an adventure. This means the parks are clean as well. I got to get up and breath in the morning air and do some photo work out doors. Nothing much, just catching up on some reviews etc. I was working with a macro lens so for my “One Object Challenge”. It’s was a moment to try some different,explore the bear more. This time I did a head shot. This is where the challenge begins. I have to keep it interesting, for me. (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.

500px / Waiting for Winter In March

500px / Waiting for Winter In March . I am really waiting for spring.  I took this image with a Nikon D700 and a Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5 AF-D . It was really bright and clear , so shooting at f22 hand-held was easy. The image was taken at Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in NJ. Its been a place I have been meaning to explore. It’s a tick paradise so going with some snow,still on the ground, allowed me to explore a little with out bug spray.

  • Focal Length 18mm
  • Shutter Speed 1/100 secs
  • Aperture f22
  • ISO 250

Sakura 2013, with my friends


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.
