Unique Photo Images

Resting on their flight to British Columbia and other parts up North.
Beautiful Spring Day in Chicagoland
Out shooting Pelicans traveling with a stop over in the chicago area and caught this Red Winged Blackbird resting on a Cattail.
Canon G11 Hand Held
Shot 3 various exposures and then tonemapped in Photomatix Pro for this noontime shot. The image was taken at Halsted and Chicago Ave. around Goose Island in Chicago.
Steps down to the Cliff House at "The Clearing"
This year is the 75 year of "The Clearing" a Folk School for Adults learning the tradition of "Hands On" in Ellison Bay in Door County Wisconsin. The above photo was taken last June. I tried to capture the rock steps down to the Cliff House and the total setting of the entrance. The back wall and floor are solid rock. Jens Jensen used this to get away and commune with nature. Summer guest can plan a night in the facility. It has a large fireplace for heat and a beautiful view of Green Bay out the window.
I will be teaching Photoshop CS4 and CS5 in the 2nd week of August at the Clearing. The class is limited to 8 students at any level from beginning to advanced.
This Famous Chicago Church in HDR
I shot the interior of the 4th Presbyterian Church on Thursday during a music rehearsal. 3 images of bracketed exposures were used for the combined image.
Twlight on Michigan Ave. - Chicago
In a twilight period of 30 minutes last night I was able to get a few HDR photos. The top is Water Tower and the bottom was 4th Presby Church before twilight. Both are 7 shot HDR (High Dynamic Range) Images. The Water Tower shows the beautiful blue sky right after sunset.
River Dam on the Des Plaines River
I continue to shoot at the Dam at Hintz and River Roads with Infrared and Conventional Digital Capture. This image was Split Toned in Lightroom with a preset using colors of Scott Kelby.
Color Infrared - Slow Shutter Speed
My latest venture is working a small dam on the Des Plaines River under different light and various shutter speeds in both Digital Color and Infrared Color.
