    Still Life Practice

    One happy side effect of practicing still-life shots is that you then get to enjoy the subject matter afterward. This mum, for example, has lasted all week. I called this “You CAN Do Something with a Flower” as that was my youngest’s reaction when she saw the photo on my monitor. Eaves, Chris (March 21,…

    Ghost Pumpkin rising

    My adventures in 4×5 homemade pinhole photography continue, this time with Rollei APX 25 film. Exposure time was ~55 minutes. The collage photo used two continuous dish lights, as my LED lights’ batteries drained about 20 minutes into the second shot.

    Frozen Seed

    The creamy bokeh on this Canon lens just melts away the background. I also like how the dark background and white horizon roughly match the snow and seed pods.

    Gnome Knoll

    Another in my skiing Santa gnome series. I was taking a continuing education photography course at the time and didn’t have any studio lights. Still, this little guy never fails to bring a smile to my face. Eaves, Chris (Nov. 7, 2008). Gnome Knoll [Photograph]. Schaumburg, Illinois. Shot on a Canon Digital Rebel XTi at…
