Here is a new image made in my studio using window light.  A direct beam of sun is striking the shell, which is placed on black velvet.  I spent about an hour photographing the shell, watching the light change and experimenting with various compositions.

I have an ongoing portfolio of pattern images that has been developing since I bought my first camera in 1974!

What portfolios have you been developing long term?

Here are links to my book and portfolio.  Enjoy!

    This is a great shot, keep up the good work

  12. Good to hear from you, Bob! The fire is not near here, but I do own a home in old El Portal, which was evacuated on Friday. We have been renting it since we moved here to Oakhurst in 2000.
    I bought this home in 1981 from The Ansel Adams Gallery when I worked there. Lived in it for 20 years! We are hoping our friends there will be back in their homes safely soon.

    Your project sounds great, and I know you have strong images from there already, yes? Keep me posted on your progress!

    Hi Bill, I hope the fires are staying away from you.

    I like the new image! It helps remind me that fine images can be made anywhere, we just have to do the work.

    In addition to my on-going design in nature series. I’m also continuing to photograph the changing character of a local creek, the St. Vrain, from the glacial headwaters above 13,000 feet, to confluence with the South Platte on the plains.

    I find the changes in geomorphology and context of this humble little creek to be interesting, magnified by the seasons. Looking forward to completing a series of images next year as a Blurb book, but I will never really be finished photographing the creek.


  14. Thanks for your kind words! Have a great trip to the East Side. Where will you be there? If in Bishop, be sure to get into the Mountain Light Gallery ( Tons of Galen’s images, plus a few of mine!

    Hi Bill!

    I’m still on a bit of a high after my experience with you at the On-on-one workshop Friday.

    I was out on my mountain bike yesterday scanning the landscape for photo ideas and came away with several that I believe came directly from that experience there.

    The time spent with you and with John gave me much in the ways of affirmation, motivation and a good sense of what makes my stronger images strong and why my weaker images are as such.

    My introduction to Adobe Light room as you guys are applying it was great and to see you process an image from camera to print was awesome. I truly had no idea what goes into a professional image.

    I’ve taken a number of classes from the better photo web site and have appreciated access to professional feedback, but I have to admit this was a big notch up for me!

    I’m headed for the Eastern Sierras this weekend and can’t wait to get back out and build on what I’ve learned.

    Thanks again

    My best

    Rick Hardt
