Lake Julian, WNC Nature Center followed by Biltmore.

I’m months late in posting, so I’m going with the better late than never idea.

My friend June had checked out Lake Julian and she was game to show me what she found. Looks like a neat place especially if you happen to catch a skull rowing race. I didn’t see anyone on the water but I did hear, then spot a Piliated woodpecker. The railroad trestle is neat too. Although last time June was there they told her it was nice to walk out on it. She didn’t and was grateful when a train when over it while she was still there. Continue reading

Tyler Turns Twelve

Happy birthday bad boy, happy birthday bad boy,

Pot Branch Falls in Bostic 04-03-2019  13.11.34-sm.jpgI didn’t carry the tripod so I didn’t capture my typical waterfall photos of Pot Branch Falls. Should’ve worn my rainboots so I could just walk through the 2 streams getting there. Maybe in several years after I wait for the tree to fall in the middle of the falls, I’ll go back, and the pretty Rotweiller is a friend’s girl. Continue reading

A glimpse behind the scenes of product photography sessions

P1430085-sm

Product photography and book cover photography are similar in that the product is what should stand out, just like a title and author name on a cover. The art should support it, and match the theme but not take away from the title or product. This is the same ideas I put into practice on my scripture photos too. Continue reading
