More photographs from the lighting/strobist workshop conducted by Flickr and Facebook buddy, Allan Delos Reyes. Learned a lot of basics (you would think I already know how to do this, but I don’t – many of the workshops I have attended on strobes and flashes just went over my head. I always have the default [...]

Photographers and spectators just before the finish line at today’s Chicago Marathon The eventual winner in the men’s division, just about a few seconds going into the finish line.
There were no more lines at the Apple store but the inside was packed with people checking out the iPad some of whom were posing with their boxes. I wasn’t able to take pictures of them, but I think this photographer with a high end DSLR camera suffices. I got mine delivered, it arrived on [...]
Recently, I had the pleasure of shooting American Bald Eagles in LeClaire, Iowa organized by members of the Chicago Flickr Meet Up Club. You’ve seen some of my shots of the shoot here: Photographing in the cold and Mississippi River I didn’t realize though that I have actually met some of the members of the [...]
Monday’s post: The two guys are indeed posing … for another photographer. The lone photographer is shooting structures on the river. Heh heh.
Somewhere in Davenport, Iowa.
I just love this guy!
I would too, if my subject is something as magnificent as this: The American Bald Eagle, the national bird and symbol of the United States of America

You get cramps holding a big lens like that. I used to bring my big lenses with me all the time too (as if carrying equipment with me would make my photos great) … but they’re just damn too heavy and I get cramps. So now, I just carry one or two lenses with me [...]
Here’s another one from last New Year’s Day Polar Bear Swim on Lake Michigan.
I am not about to venture out there and hunt for photographers photographing. Here’s how it looked out there on the lake this morning: It’s even worse just now, with wind and snow billowing … here is an unretouched photo I took a few minutes ago: And to think it was so beautiful out there [...]
Photographers braving the cold at the Jasper-Pulaski Wildlife Area in Medaryville, Indiana taking photographs of the thousands and thousands of Greater Sandhill Cranes that gather on a field during their fall migration to warmer climes. On Nov. 18, the count was 14,158 cranes. Thousands of sandhill cranes flying just before sunset into a field (called [...]
… for him to shoot the wonderful glass architecture that he was looking at for a long time but he never did.
At the Rubber Ducky Derby yesterday. They dumped about 30,000 rubber duckies on the Chicago River for a race. Each duck was adopted by an individual or corporation … and the one that finishes first downstream at a certain mark wins something for the adopter. This annual Chicago race is for the benefit of Special [...]
Approaching downtown Chicago from the south branch of the Chicago River. Summer is phenomenal in Chicago. We have water taxis plying the Chicago River that bring you to different neighborhoods. Riding one of these taxis is a pleasant way to spend a week-end afternoon. For example, you can hop on one of these crafts from [...]
Held at Chinatown last week-end. For more pictures, please go to my Chicago Photography Examiner page.
