Mini-Thoughts' subject matter is my awesome little nephew! Love how the two speedlites show up in his eyes.

004 Thoughts

004 Thoughts. Photograph by Nick Schale
This self portrait is heavily cropped. The 7D was held by me (wide angle) and triggering a flash I had off to my right. Like how sharp the image came out.

003 Watching for Spring

003 Watching for Spring, photograph by Nick Schale. Fort Leavenworth, KS
I'd like to revisit this spot and get some more photos under different circumstances. Sunrise (as it faces the East) and maybe one with a real dense fog. But for now... with the sun almost at high noon, this is what I came up with. It is an HDR merge of three photos with a tad retouching in photoshop. f/13, 1/250th, ISO200 16-35mm

002 Half Hour

002 Half Hour photo by Nick Schale
Played a bit with some off camera flash. This shot has two speed lights hitting it, one with a few blue filters stacked on it (left flash). You can notice it a bit in the specular highlights.

001 This Just In

001 This Just In, photograph by Nick Schale
001 titled This Just In is me telling the world, I am going to give it another shot (multiple puns intended). I will probably be loosening up the rules for myself this go around. Mainly I will try and post daily, HOPEFULLY the shot will be taken that day. If I am unable, I will try and post a photo that has a lot of Photoshop work OR maybe I'll post a Photography tip! Either way, round two... here we go!

2011-01-17 Getting Ready

Bride getting ready for the big day. For the 365 project there are no rules... strict would be take a picture every day and post it. But what about 'post' work? I spend a lot of time retouching photos. So today, for the 365 Project I am going to post a photo I took a couple months ago, but am revisiting it in post production work today.

Intel's new i7-2600k chip!
So, yes. I know this isn't the most artistic photo I have uploaded. I'm just very excited to start building the my next work horse! *And it was NOT $369.99! Rest of the parts coming this week!

2011-01-05 Pearl's Guts

My lovely Pearl will turn 5 years old this year! She has had a few upgrades... more ram, more harddrives, different optical drives and graphics cards... but the brain is still the same. This year, she will retire.

2011-01-02 Generosity

Generosity is the habit of giving freely without expecting anything in return. Like how my good friend Bobby took some of the closest people to him to the KC vs Oakland game. OR how KC gave the game to Oakland!
