Oahu

Since I’ve moved my blog to the wordpress.com platform, I’ve made some changes to the appearance, including the current featured panoramic image of the city of Honolulu & Waikiki. This is a JPEG from a 695MB, 70″ long image created from 14 high resolution vertical images, taken from the top rim of Diamond Head Crater.
I was fortunate to visit my son & his wife there in July on his first work assignment out of college (yay Austin!) I shot quite a lot of stock photography, & several nice panoramas such as this one.

My first day there, my 24-105L lens totally stopped working, but I was able to borrow my son’s 17-85 to fill in, which was used to create the above image.

I may post more Hawaii images if there is any interest.

Thank you for your support. Aloha!

It’s That Time of Year..

…for architectural photographers. Construction projects are getting their final touches, and the leaves are still green and just beginning to turn. We’ve just passed the point of the year when direct sunlight reaches north-facing facades early & late.
This has been a great year for photography, (surprisingly, given the extremes).
I currently have several architectural shoots pending completion for photography. It’s important to be flexible in my scheduling to accomodate the myriad of factors which effect the completion date for any given project.
Fortunately, in today’s economy, society has found ways to improve our schools, and I’ve been fascinated to see all the cool stuff now standard & expected in today’s schools.
Here’s a shot from Holmes Park Elementary in Sapaulpa, OK.
Not like it was when I was a third grader…
