This is a photo I took in the studio and turned into a composite. This is a lot more work than it looks like, but it seems like it could be a really exciting direction to go!

Painting With Light Still Life Series

This is a photographic Still Life series that I'm currently working on. These were created using a technique called "painting with light." I used a Mag-Lite flashlight in a dark room to "paint" the subjects with light. This creates a softer, more painterly look, to emulate an impressionistic feel.

Springdale Nevada


Springdale Ghost Town


These are my final images for the Smart Phone Imaging class. 
I took these with my iPhone 4S, using the Hipstamatic app. 
Springdale is an interesting place. Not many people get to see it, as it's privately owned now by a friend of ours. I always get a kick out of photographing the area because it has a lot of history. The buildings are slowly deteriorating over time, so I'm trying to capture some of them before the "fall." It covers over 400 acres, so I don't think I'll run out of things to photograph for a while.

Drove to Beatty with Hubby today, took many pics, not the greatest light, but make hay while the sun shines! (Or even if the sun isn't shining!)

The Winery

Winery in Loomis, California


Went to a winery on the way home from the Apple Fest in California-on the way back to Reno. The land is pretty parched right now, looks like CA could really use some rain..
