A Fine Day For A Mow

Mowing the front yard on a glorious Tuesday evening. What a fine day for a mow. Who says it takes a long time to mow the front yard? Beautiful evening after the earthquake just waiting for the hurricane. . .

Ben Floats a Phone

Messing around using the Force, Ben has the ability to actually make things float.
Well maybe we used a little After Effects here too.

Making a Camera Slider

Making a Camera Slider from Rob Ranney on Vimeo.

My friend Rob made this short piece while we were making a camera slider. It is rare that I am in front of the camera... for the obvious reasons. Thanks Rob, nice job.

HDR Still Life

Champagne Tasting - (Click Picture for larger image)
This past weekend we entertained aboard Tapestry with a Champagne tasting. I Took several exposures hand held, (5 at one stop apart) and blended them to get a start on this image. I then messed about with it in Photoshop and what you see is the result. Again this one may be a bit overdone but am having fun playing with the limits of good taste. . . . I should have moved the pocketbook off the chair. . . drat!

After the champaign tasting our group moved over to our friends boat and had a tasting of Rosé which, as it turns out, is not very popular.
