Wasn't Macro Photography supposed to be...easy? or easier? well..  IT SURE AS HECK ISN'T!

Who knew there are just as challenging conditions in macro photography as there are in daily photography? ... to capture a decent depth a field you still have to stop down (~5.6 - 8) a good bit! With the barrel open that wide, it calls for super steady hands, precision, and/or a tripod... if only the flowers and the bugs would stand still enough or follow directions.. lol  

You macro photographers have my utmost respect!

Talk about an inspiring shot... I don't know where to begin with this.. Yes, it's a wedding shot but.. it feels and looks like sooo much more... Kudos!

A wedding at the beautiful Bath Abbey, in the City of Bath, Somerset. I'm a newbie to using HDR, so any tips /critique would be appreciated! I'm using Photomatix Pro 4 then finishing in Photoshop. Thanks! :-)

The stonework looks like shiny pink resin. The picture did not pick up texture well at all OR it was processed. . While the surface of the stone is semi smooth the light diffuses more like from grey chalk or limestone. Also the wood of the pews looks over brown. Oh i know what it reminds me of... the hand tinted pictures from way back. FYI: been to Bath Abby.

Hey hey!  Say cheeese! ... No really.. do it!

How does one say that they love photography.... I mean, not in the conventional way? Photography is a passion of mine which I have no reservations about placing every extra bit of time I have, into.

I pretty much love to shoot anything that moves... or doesn't! My camera knows little boundaries. It's the "bad boy" on the block - so to speak... (saying that really makes me feel like a bad ass!)

Me... Well, I'm very light hearted and quick witted. I love humor and good times. Sarcasm is a button that I fused "on" several years back...before birth.. I sometimes think of it as Darwin's Payback - as there should only be one! *takes a bow*

I'm passionate about what I do and enthusiastic in my approach. I love people who live to live and love life!! Time is too relentless and passes by too quickly to not enjoy yourself. We owe it to ourselves.

Soooo, that's pretty much me. Questions? Answers? Tomatoes left un-thrown? 

Thanks for reading!

Love this place. The food is always made to order. The dinner portions are pretty large so I hope you bring your appetite with you. My favorite, Wonderful Chicken (sesame chicken), is always crispy but not dry and the sauce has a great subtle sweet and spicy flavor. The staff is VERY courteous and always attentive. You're greated with a smile at the door and for some reason they seem to always remember your face and suggest, to you, your usual order. It has a great mom and pops feel and certainly a diamond in the rough!

Debi is incredibly talented and creative. I've worked with her on several photo shoots and the outcome of her work makes my life all that much easier. Being the artist that she is, her work is more than just work - it's a manifestation of her ideas, her experience and her creativity. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for Bridal and Hair services.

been here a number of times for cd release parties. great place, a bit small and cramped at times but otherwise probably one of the best selections you'll find in austin.
