This red rose evokes an entirely different feeling when presented in a monochrome tone.

This started as a color image and I spent a lot of time trying to get this just right. I like it better than the image I started with.

Woodland Floor Decor
Nature photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This was a delightful find on an autumn walk through the woods in northeast Wisconsin. The tallest of these tiny red mushrooms was about 2 inches.

We stumbled upon these while trekking to some waterfall site in Marinette County, Wisconsin. We found a number of colorful mushrooms on that trip.

Serious Sunrise
Lighthouse photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

There was a very serious mood to this morning’s sky as the sun breached the horizon behind the lighthouse and pier at Algoma, Wisconsin. It was a good morning to be on Lake Michigan’s western shore.

I was up early to make my way to Algoma, hoping for a worthwhile sunrise. I was not disappointed. The temperatures were cool but the sky had a warming effect…at least on the psyche. This shot was taken from the harbor embankment at the marina.

I’ve got a few other good shots from this vantage point that I’ll be working on when time allows. Watch for a wide, panorama shot of this morning’s sunrise in the future.

Carnival of Autumn Colors
Fall foliage photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The wide variety of hues in this patch of sumac reminded me of the bright colors you might find at an autumn carnival.

I had a few minutes before I had to be an an appointment so I thought I would make a quick stop at a local waterfall to, hopefully, catch a beautiful fall scene. Well, the waterfall didn’t have much water falling; barely a trickle. Even if it were flowing, there wasn’t much color in the foliage surrounding it. However, there was a small patch of sumac in the area that was bursting with color. Normally the sumac turns a bright red. I’ve not encountered sumac in transition with such a wide range of colors before. It made my stop worthwhile.

October Surprise
Sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I encountered a number of surprises on this early morning visit to the lake shore at Kewaunee, Wisconsin.

The morning light was a very pleasant surprise. The variations of color in the sky, from yellow to blue with a hint of purple on the fringes, was another welcome surprise. The rough water was an exciting surprise – normally the lake is pretty calm in the early morning hours.

The overall result of this image was a very nice surprise. I didn’t think I’d be able to capture as much of the dynamic range as I did. As bright as the sky looked and as dark as the water looked, I thought it would be difficult to see much of the detail in this image.

American Beauty

This male American Goldfinch was kind enough to pose for a portrait shot. This is an image I found in my archive; something I took a few years ago. It must of gotten lost in the shuffle.

Shuttlecock
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The shape of this cosmos, in the processes of opening up, reminded me of a badminton shuttlecock. Of course, it’s the back-lighting that brings a richness to the color and texture of this simple wildflower.

The Autumn Heart
Fall foliage photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

An early morning sunrise, shining behind this leaf on one of our lilac bushes, brought out the brilliant fall color and intricate detail.

This is one of those times where something just caught my eye. I was walking by a window, just about sunrise, when I noticed this bright leaf on a bush. I quickly grabbed my camera, hoping to catch the beauty before the shaft of light piercing the bush moved off this leaf. I was there in time.

I love big landscape vistas. I also love the smaller vistas. As I always say – whatever catches my eye.

Caged Competitor
Sports Portrait photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The season may be over, but this is one baseball player who remains serious about his game.

This is one of my favorites from a recent “senior portrait” shoot. Baseball was an important part of this young man’s high school career so they wanted some photos of him in his uniform.

The basic idea for this shot (ball player looking through the fence) was brought to me by the subject’s parent who saw a similar shot on Pinterest and wanted us to try it. During the shoot, we made a quick trip to a nearby, small town ball field to grab a few shots. I believe the version she showed me was in color but, while I was working on it, I thought a gritty, monochrome style would best suit the players mood.

There are a lot of things that make this a favorite for me. First, the general mood of the shot. You can easily imagine a story behind this image. (In fact, several stories.)

I also like the detail of the ball, glove and uniform. Don’t miss other interesting touches…like the bruises on the player’s elbow (An element that adds to the story), the tufts of grass on the unkempt infield, the way the light poles and the wisps of clouds frame the photo. (I wish I would have thought to throw a bat on the field in the background.)

The one aspect I question… Is the fence too distracting? Of course, it’s important to this scene, but I think it is almost too symmetrical around the facial features. I didn’t try to get it that way, it’s just the stance he took. I think it might seem more natural if the fence didn’t intersect right on the bridge of the nose and chin. If it was just offset a little to one side or another it might seem more natural, less posed. Of course, now I might be just nit-picking. What do you think? (If it didn’t occur to you before I mentioned it, than it is just me the nit-picky perfectionist.)

Ladies Dancing
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

In my mind, the blooms of this fuchsia plant remind me of beautiful ladies dancing – arms raised, skirts twirling and a wry smile on their faces.

I discovered this fuchsia plant (and a few other varieties) at the West of the Lake Gardens in Manitowoc, WI. The fuchsia is a very unique plant species.

According to Wikipedia…

Fuchsia /ˈfjuːʃə/ is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of shrubs or small trees. The first, Fuchsia triphylla, was discovered on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola (present day Dominican Republic and Haiti) about 1696–1697 by the French Minim monk and botanist, Charles Plumier during his third expedition to the Greater Antilles. He named the new genus after the renowned German botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501–1566).

There are currently almost 110 recognized species of Fuchsia. The vast majority are native to South America. The fruit of all fuchsia species and cultivars is edible, with the berry of F. splendens reportedly among the best-tasting. Its flavor is reminiscent of citrus and pepper, and it can be made into jam. The fruits of some other fuchsias are flavorless or leave a bad aftertaste.

Deeply Devoted to Love
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

A closeup view of the delicate, and often emotional, beauty of the red rose.

On occasion, I’ve picked up a few long-stem flowers from a local florist for the main purpose of photographing them. Photographing flowers in the wild is a seasonal sport. Photographing flowers purchased from the florist can be a year-round activity.

If I remember correctly, I set this one in a vase on my kitchen table. I used the normal overhead and ambient light available in our kitchen. The drops you see are not water. (Though I’ll also use water in some shots.) These drops are glycerin – looks like water but holds better to the petals.

The Fall Bloom
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

One of the favorite flowers of autumn are now in bloom. Mums are colorful, prolific and as popular as pumpkin spice and apple orchards in the fall. In fact, these mums were photographed on a recent visit to an apple orchard in central Ohio. These were one of many colorful varieties of potted mums they had on sale. I selected these beauties because of their fall-like colors and the various stages of blooms in this bunch; from buds to the full flowers.
