Introduction

I'm a professional photographer, web designer, computer guru, video producer and artist of sorts. I enjoy taking candid photos of people and places. I love a good thunderstorm. You might find me out chasing tornados or capturing lightning on film. I'm working on several website projects, trying to find the next big thing. I enjoy learning anything I can, you can never have enough knowledge.

Lately I've been doing a lot of HDR photography. HDR opens up a whole new world of creativity, a lot of people don't care for the HDR look but there are many situations HDR is the only usable option and many times it turns an ordinary photo into pure art. I also write articles on photography, Photoshop and technology. Lately a lot of my articles have focused on Social Networking and Google+.

To put an end to the rumors that my lack of posting for the past week or so means I'm dead. Let me put those rumors to rest.

I've had what may be the worst week of my life. Not so much as hurting myself but letting the most important people in my life down. Add to it, getting into an accident in the off ramp lane in the rain, receiving $150 citation, having someone decide to smash my tail light and being on the verge of being unable to pay the bills to keep my business alive. Letting people I care about down is the biggest issue for me. It's time for me to evaluate my negative habits and thinking and realize it doesn't just hurt me but those around me too. I also have to come up with some great marketing fast or I could lose my chance at fulfilling my dream. It's time for me to grow up and be a man.

Founder of Newsboys Comes Out As An Atheist

He makes some good points about the Christian rock scene. I think I would have more respect for them if they preached what they practice.

I remember some Christian rock band member (Don't remember the group name off hand but they were very popular and I believe based in Tulsa) who raped a girl who was around 13-14 years old. Instead of getting charges pressed he was "forgiven". Maybe it's just me but I don't think that holds moral weight and was likely more to do with avoiding headlines and moving past the negative light than anything to do with being righteous.

With exception of people with serious mental conditions we all have a built in moral compass regardless of following a religion or not but it seems that in any kind of group it becomes easier for people to make immoral choices because as others in the group agree, the more acceptable it is to them.

What do you think?

Photography during the Blue Hour.
If you are a photographer you are probably familiar with the "golden hours" after sunrise and before sunset to get a nice warm tone.
While I've occasionally done night shots here and there making sure the keep the shutter open long enough to get the blue sky at night background, this is the first time I've heard of the actual term "blue hour" and learned it also has optimal times. Should be cool to check out.

Have you ever wanted to create beautiful night photos but it was completely dark when you found the right spot and subject? Well the bluehoursite.com web site will help you by calculating the best time frame for taking stunning blue hour pictures. If you don't know what is "blue hour" then ...

Now You Can Turn Any Large Prop / Small Jet Into a VTOL Hover Lander!

It's not so much the crosswind but the headwind that catches my attention on this one. As a pilot it's not often you get to land vertically. I'd love to try it once if I weren't concerned about downdrafts.

Innocent or Guilty?

I had a pain pill out on my desk this morning, toward the back off course. When I came home from getting food it was missing. The only one in the house who had access to my bedroom briefly while I went to get a Voltage to drink was Eddy.

I just took this photo of him. Does he look innocent or guilty?

Strangest Nightmare Ever?

I just woke up from a pretty bad nightmare. There was a restaurant and pub located next to one of my fishing spots at the Arkansas River. Would be between Washington Irving Park and the river itself. I remember this location from past dreams, looks different than the actual place but it's that area. Anyway apparently I hang out there and brought my mom for some reason and during the dream I really needed to pee (in the dream and real life) so I find the bathroom, instead of urinals it's filled with nothing but open toilets, fine whatever. But they are surrounded by (if you are eating breakfast stop reading now). Surrounded by vast amounts of diarrhea, including the floor and walls  and I'm barefoot but really have to pee. A worker is in there to do clean up. For me to stay out of the diarrhea  I have to stand way back and when I start to pee it sprays all over including on the worker so I have to stop (everyone knows that's the worst feeling ever when you REALLY have to go). I'm instructed to go find something to help increase my aim and I end up in the restaurant looking for it and of course for no reason I'm naked at this point but really don't care. Then I start to become conscious and realize that I need to wake myself up to go pee and wake up.

Someone want to analyze that dream for me? Or better yet, one up it!

An amateur stab at analysis:

You feel surrounded by the world's troubles (and the lack of good people working on them), including your own pressing immediate needs. You sense there might be a better, smarter way to solve both your own problems and address the world's troubles, but you feel ill-prepared in figuring that out, let alone starting.

This guy has very awesome work and one hell of an offer. If you need a good video intro check him out!
 
I Need Your Help: An Experiment In Asking And Trusting Via Amanda Palmer: I Will Create A Motion Graphic Opening For You, Your Company, Product, Podcast or Family Videos And You Pay What You Want.

I posted this a while ago but I'm posting it again because I need your help. 

I read (actually listened to the audiobook) Amanda Palmer's incredible book THE ART OF ASKING  (buy it! Buy it here: http://amzn.to/1s0Ztd5 It will change your life ) and in it Amanda talks about not being afraid to ask people for things and trusting that people are worth trusting.  So here goes;

I do motion graphics and from the video below you can kind of get the feel for what I do. This is the sort of stuff that would be great for company logos, openings of podcasts, Hangouts On Air or even family videos. The average length and the length I think works great is about 10-15 seconds. I just did an original one for +Ryan M. Danks and his production company. 

This can be a video opening for a YouTube video, a YouTube Channel, a company video, a training video or just your family videos. 

Normally I charge anywhere from $75 to $300-400.00 for this kind of work and I want to do it for you. I'm asking you to let me do this for you and I'm asking you to pay me for it.

That's the asking, here comes the trust part: You pay what you want to pay. 

Along the lines of many artists like Radiohead or other musicians who trust people to be fair, I am trusting you. Pay what you want.

Here's the Help part: I would appreciate you resharing this (and if you know me I really don't like asking people to reshare ever) and if you have a need, help me by asking me (and paying me) to do a video for you. I need to bring in some money to help with family, bills and all that. I'll give you a great video!

Here's the ins and outs: I have the right to refuse a commission (unlikely but this is the internet so you got to say stuff like that), depending on what you want or need it could take a week or two to produce - I will try and give you a time table at time of commission and acceptance, I'll work with you as much as possible and I can do some basic logo work but hopefully you've got your own logo. (if you need a logo designed or developed I've got a fantastic graphic designer for you)  If this turns into a lot of commissions and I'm swamped I'll let you know immediately and I will ask you to wait or forgive. I want to deliver in a timely manner any I accept. 

I will deliver to you an HD version of the final product in 720p (1280 x 720) or the resolution of your choice.

Again, I'll do this for you and you pay what you want (paypal is best) because I am developing my trust of the internet and her citizens. 

You can message me directly here on Google+ (I'm here all the time so it's an easy place for me) or email me at the email in the end of the video. Best thing is if you want something in the video (but with your logo) or some variation on it. If not, describe to me what you've got in mind and I'll tell you if that's possible. Making 3D versions of logos and words is almost always doable.  I can also do your end credits or a lower-third for your name to animate onto the screen. 

Totally serious about this and hoping to do +Amanda Palmer    proud even though she never comes around here any more. I want to start my business again after being away for so long (damn day job and responsibilities) plus I love doing this sort of thing plus I need the extra money. 

 I want to love what I'm doing again... don't we all?

Let's have some fun and create some cool stuff. Please tell your friends that might be interested.

Best Part?

Best part of an ice cream cone is the chocolaty richness at the bottom. Agree?
