End of Another Show Season

Last Sunday marked the end of the 2019 Mariah Meadows Horse Show Season.  Yes, other shows do continue on through out the entire year at various locations, but for me, after shooting through the winter months for one season, I decided to take winters off for a break from it all.

2018 Horse Show Review

I’ve been messing around with video hosting services as of late. Self hosting on Zenfolio, Youtube, and Vimeo.

The self hosted solution would be ideal, simple because I’m already paying for the service to host my photos. The problem there however, it that the interface is a bit wonky – I.E. I don’t like it!

Photography as Art…

Disclaimer: This post is just my opinion, and in no way is it meant to be offensive, critical, or authoritative.

Something that I have discovered about myself when it comes to nude photography, is just how much of it I’m not really fond of. All to often I see photos that, to me, don’t really offer the viewer much – other than a naked female. In other words, if the model had been fully clothed, the photo wouldn’t be much of anything to look at.

I realize that art is extremely subjective, and one person’s masterpiece, is just another photo to someone else. In other words – “to each their own”

My Interview with model, Jenifer Sutter

During my short time on MeWe, I have joined a few photography groups, and have started sharing some of my work. MeWe really is a great social network, especially for those of us who are photography oriented, and it has allowed me to meet some really great people  – photographers and models – during my short time there! 

A couple of the photography groups that I am a member of, “IFD MeWe”, and “IFD Non-Nude Model Photography” were created by a young lady, and model, Jenifer Sutter.

Mariah Meadows Horse Show Season Finale (sort of)

This past Saturday (Sept 22nd) marked the successful conclusion of the 2018 Mariah Meadows Fun Show series season.  Technically, there is still one more show to go – the awards / fun game show, where they present the awards for this seasons winners, plus a series of “just for fun” patterns for the riders to compete in.  Hence the use of the words “sort of” in the title.  😊

Cosplay? What the heck is that?

You’ve perhaps heard the word used before, and you might even have a general idea of what it is all about. Most people see it as simply dressing up and walking around as their favorite TV or movie character – and to be perfectly honest – that’s pretty much it!  😂

Nikon Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras The Nikon Z7 & Nikon Z6

I’ve been anxiously awaiting for news on Nikon’s new full frame mirrorless cameras!  I love the idea of mirrorless – less moving parts to wear out, but because the view you seen in the viewfinder is now on a tiny LCD display, I wonder how “responsive” it is for fast action photography?
