dark of the matinee


Simple black and white shot of a movie theater. At 3:30 in the am, I was left alone to play in the streets. I was trying to capture/recreate my feeling at seeing this theater at this late/early hour. Shadows darken the unlit marquee, unlit titles offering escape.

transient







Photo of an abandoned, lonely pier, on a lovely spring day. The park offered a great view of the Seattle Skyline which i chose to ignore, instead I took a good 50 or so shots of this derelict. The photo was shot purposely high to create a little moodiness.

Color Photo is cross processed, Black and White is filtered via infrared. Photoshop is my friend! Added a faux Holga filter, to add a slight 'rush to the water' and a nice old time black border.

Dreams Old Men Dream


Second attempt at HDR Photography, quite pleased with this image. This time i used 3 raw images bracketed at -2 0 +2 Ev. On the HDR image Fake Tales, I shot in bracketed JPGS. RAW is the ticket, so much richer detail and saturation.

Walking around the Seattle Center at Noon on a Tuesday. The center was deserted today, so i asked the Carousel attendant if I could get a little intimate with the horseys....

Once again I used Photoshop, Photomatix, Noiseware Pro.


Inspired by the cold war kids...

Fake Tales


This is my first attempt at HDR PHOTOGRAPHY, and I am quite pleased with the final result.

I live a stone's throw from the Sculpture Park in Seattle, and I usually take a stroll every couple days or so. I love this park, and if your ever in Seattle I suggest you make a visit.

I am not going to attempt to explain the process, as I am not much of a technical writer so instead i will simply list the programs used. Photoshop, Photomatix, Noiseware Pro.
