Exhibit in Annapolis

EXHIBIT IN ANNAPOLIS

I have a small but very nice exhibit at the House of Delegates office building.  It is on the 3rd floor of the building in Delegate Adrienne Jones’ office,  who is the Speaker Pro Tem of the House of Delegates.  The House Of Delegates Office building is open to the public.  You do need a photo ID if you want to visit.  If you do please stop in and see my photography and visit your representative. 

 Have a good visit to Historic Annapolis and have a great week!!

Tow Tank at USNA

WEEKLY PHOTO – FEBRUARY 11 – TOW TANK AT USNA

From Roger Miller, Photographer; Image Publishing, Ltd. and The Workshops in Digital Photography

This is a photo of the Tow Tank,  which is used for the classes in the Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering at the Naval Academy.  It is used to test how the hull of a ship will  react in different conditions before it is built.  I am working on a new Naval Academy book which will be like my first edition, an inside look at the Naval Academy.  You have probably not seen this lab in Rickover Hall because it is not open to the public.  I have been very privileged to be able to document the day to day life of midshipmen at the Naval Academy.  Tech data: Photo taken October 15, 2008, Nikon D700, Nikon f2.8 14mm lens, ISO 6400, exposure was 1/25 second at f11.0, Comment- should have brought ISO up to H3 brought the speed up a bit. 

 

Support the Naval Academy,  buy books and have a great week!!

Your questions and comments on this are welcome.

Jungle in the Rain

WEEKLY PHOTO – FEBRUARY 18 – RAIN IN THE JUNGLE
From Roger Miller, Photographer; Image Publishing, Ltd. and The Workshops in Digital Photography
I took this photo last year when I was in Cozumel, Mexico to photograph a wedding. I was exploring the island while everyone else was partying. I took this photo on a golf course cut out of the jungle. The jungle in Cozumel is low and dense. I had rented a golf cart with a roof and when it started to rain I just sat on the path and enjoyed the rain. It was quiet, warm and beautiful. I do not think I would like to live in a jungle. Besides the heat and the bugs they had crocodile warnings on all the greens. But, there was a certain sort of beauty in the jungle. It is important if you are doing photography to find beauty where ever you are. If you want to work on your photography join Jeffrey Wolk and me in our Digital Workshops. See our Website at The Website. Tech Data: Shot July 30, 2011, Nikon D700, used 28–300 mm f3.5 Tamron lens, ISO was 1250, exposure was 1/400 at f 5.6, comment- should have brought the ISO up to 2500 or 3200 and used a F stop of F8 or F11 to get more depth of field.

Keep away from the crocodiles and have a good week!!!
If you have any questions or comments please let me know!!

Paca Garden in Infrared

image002

Here is something warm and wonderful when the winter winds are blowing.  I took this photo of the Spring House at the Paca Garden with my digital camera modified for infrared images.  It has taken me awhile to find my “voice” with infrared photos.  I am still exploring.  I have found the best combination is in both the shooting and post processing of the images.  I love doing infrared images and creating photos with intense color.  If you want to learn some of the techniques I used enroll in our Workshop in Annapolis.  See the link for the Workshops below.  Tech Data: Image created April 27, 2012, Nikon D200, with a Tamron 18-250 mm f 3.5 lens, ISO of 200, exposure was 1/80 second at f 13.0.  Infrared does not expose the same as normal light.  You need to use your histogram to see if it is a good exposure. The best combination is a tungsten white balance, and a RAW file.  I processed the file first in Lightroom and then reversed my red and blue channels in Photoshop.  I then enhanced this image with a Topaz filter.

Enjoy something warm and wonderful and have a great week!

I welcome your comments.

Our Inner-Artist

 IMG_3312 Edit B&W 3

I am passionate about Igniting the“Inner-Artist Excitement Spark” we all have inside by using photography techniques. Most of us found tremendous joy while creating a variety of art as children, and then as we grew older, many of us lost that joy because we were encouraged to develop our logical left-brain more than our creative right-brain. Isn’t it ironic that in the business world we need to think “outside the box”? I know that we are all capable of producing beauty; it’s just a matter of re-awakening that creative spirit. Photography can be as exhilarating and fun as that new box of Crayola Crayons we got as a kid. For me, teaching others how to take their photographs from simple snapshots to works of art that they love is an awesome experience.
