Brooke, a co-worker of mine, took several of my pictures and blended them together to make this. She made a L A R G E print out of the file and it hangs in the home of the racer, her boyfriend. Photoshop can be such an awesome tool to make digital pictures even better. Thanks Brooke!

Miller Motorsports Park is an AWESOME place to shoot. It is one of my favorite place to go for action shots. Today, I was at the right place and the right time to capture a wreck. Secretly, I have always wanted to see one. I know that is bad, and I really don't want to see someone hurt. But it was cool and I got it! The rider's name is Mark, and he only suffered a sore wrist. The motorcycle, however, not so lucky. Better luck next time!

Walking on the wild side!
Awaking early this morning to the sun shining through my window, I got out of bed to mow the lawn. As I walked from the backyard to the front I saw several birds chirping, singing and feeding. A very happy sight to see, hear and feel. Because the grass was still wet with morning dew, I choose not to mow but to get out my camera. I'd rather spend the morning watching nature wake-up than waking up my neighbors with the sound of a mower. Spring time in Utah!

For being injured, Bard still managed to get air. If gravity wasn't strong, he could be flying with the birds! Let's hope you heal quickly, Bard. One of these shots will make a great 20x30. D200, Sigma 18-50 lens, fish-eye lens, ISO 400, f6.3, 1/1250 sec. Some cropping.
Not a bad way to start a Tuesday morning. With the weather getting better, the amount of AIR will too! We had the local skate park all to ourselves. I could get some great angles without the fear of getting run over. D200, Sigma 18-50 f2.8 lens, (I bought just for this type of shooting.),ISO 400, 1/500 sec., f16 and a fish eye lens, ISO 400, f4, 1/400 sec. Some cropping.

In Popular Photography Magazine, I found a small article on shooting water drops. After borrowing a few things and getting my wife to help, we tried to capture a drop and splash of water. Never the same picture twice, like a snowflake. It worked well with water why not milk. To make it interesting, we added fruit loops. D200, 105mm macro lens and R1C1 wireless speedlight system, f5, 1/60 sec., ISO 200, spot metering.

I sometimes wonder who is the craziest, Jared or myself! I vote Jared because he has been hurt and I have been lucky, knock on wood, not to get run over while shooting in the bowl. This was early morning and we had the park all to ourselves. We get the best shots that way but it is usually 6 A.M. and I like to sleep in. D200, 50mm lens, f4.5, 1/160 sec., ISO 800
LINES, LINES, LINES, I know they are all around but I do not always see them or incorporate them into a picture. I have very few pictures with leading lines in them. It is time for a photo assignment, nothing but lines.
I spotted these at a water park. I used a Pentax W60 to get these shots. In or out of the water I get great pictures. Later, I will post some of the under water pictures.
