During my latest art festival, patrons were looking at the man-made art while I was looking up at God's art.

This is called a sun dog (or par hellion).

This past weekend a mother and her son (probably around 8yrs old) were looking at art. He was in a booth across from me and his mother was in my booth. She called him over to look at some photographs. He slowly came over stating he doesn't like black and white photography and was hesitant to come over. Then one or more of my pictures caught his eye and he muttered, "Nevermind," as he straightened up and walked over to take a closer look.

I was recently asked if the development process was the most difficult part of making my photographs. Short answer - "No."

Long answer - There are several parts I take to make a photograph. It's not just clicking a shutter button and then printing the image. Before I can even get to the development phase (post-processing), I have to compose the shot, use the right focus point, set the right camera settings (ISO, shutter speed, aperture), and then I can click the button. But, what are those correct settings? It all depends on what I want the final result to be. You see, without a properly composed and exposed image to work with, I cannot achieve the final result through the development phase. If the focus is not right, there's no fix for that with computers. If there's not enough or too much motion in the subject, there's no fix for that. It's like building a house. If the foundation and walls are not built "square" then your trim pieces won't fit and look right. If what the camera captures is not right, then the small amount of development work I do will not yield the results I'm after.

So, I believe the most difficult part of making my photographs is capturing it correctly in-camera from the beginning.

We have a bit of a smoke problem at home from all of the fires in this state.

"Wide Riverbed" (2008) by Jon LaBass Photography.

With the snow runoff in the Spring, Medano Creek saturates the sand at the base of the dunes thus causing the water to flow on top rather than below like it does throughout the rest of the year. Also, because of the constantly shifting sand, the creek features waves which is very unique to this area.

"Lake Isabelle Fog" (2008) by Jon LaBass Photography.

Traditionally, Lake Isabelle has rough waters from the wind, but this June sunrise revealed a calmness at the lake giving a rather lovely reflection with some unique clouds.
