latest digital painting

Still working at learning Corel Painter. I love digital painting because I can work on it without getting stuff out each time and I can do a little here and a little there. I really love analog painting too, although I need a lot more practice (as I do with Corel Painter). But I do […]

two dog sessions in the last week

Still working on getting everything going for my photography business, which means dog sessions! They are so much fun. Two pugs and a Weimaraner! The two pugs are familiar, because one of them is an Alabama Pug Rescue alum who I was lucky enough to do the home visit for about 10 years ago. It […]

easter puggy

I know, I know. But he’s so CUTE. These are available in my Etsy shop.

some test shots of Buddy and Munchkin

And news! I am preparing to start a very small photography business! (I know…I’m all over the place.) I am pretty excited though! I’d like to photograph mostly dogs and adults. Let’s face it, we have plenty of excellent photographers around here to do weddings, seniors, families, babies and maternity. Not that I would turn […]

dodie’s 15!

She made it to 15! She had her birthday photo taken, had a cake and was queen for the day. OK, she’s queen everyday. But we happily celebrated her turning 15 on Wednesday (I’m a little late, I know).

from from the mamiya afd

My friend, Lea, has loaned me her Mamiya AFD. It’s a big, awesome camera. The only problem is that it has a line going across some of the negatives. So I looked at the film back, in particular the film insert, and found a metal piece that was slightly bent. I straightened it out and […]

some thoughts on digital film simulation and stuff

I’m still trying to figure out the whole digital simulation of the film shooting process. Not just the post-process with the Alien Skin Exposure 7 Tri-X preset, which I adore. I want to simulate the whole thing as much as possible  – the limitation of exposures, the way you have to think when you shoot […]

photos around the house – tri-x simulation

I love film. I don’t love the cost and inconvenience though, and the fact that no one local carries the film I like (unless I go up to Atlanta to Showcase but that’s a whole afternoon of sitting in the car in Atlanta traffic). Despite the inconveniences, I do still use film, and I do still […]
