Usually, you see this type of shot with a wedding ring but I used a Kenko extension tube instead.

Yerba Mate Bag

This Yerba Mate is really good and 2.2 lbs are only $5!

There might not be any updates for the next few days because we are going on a short trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. You can expect photos of elk and fall foliage soon though.

Note to my parents: I will try to call you during the trip.

Yerba Mate

I received 3kg of Yerba Mate. I ordered it as a substitute for coffee since I drink way too much of it. This photo shows the leaves in my French Press. I do not really like this photo but I hardly had any time for photography today.

Another beautiful sunrise here in 'Colorful Colorado'.

Sunday, September 21, 2008


I found some red leaves to photograph. It is nice to see a little bit of red fall foliage around these parts where yellow is so predominant.

Fall Bokeh

A photo of fall foliage with a very dreamy background.

Rainbow Falls

I took this photo of Rainbow Falls in Manitou Springs while waiting for my car to be repaired. The 'artwork' seems to change every few months.

Another sunrise photo. That time of the day always provides some magical lighting.

The morning light was just starting to light up some of the leaves in the garden.

Some Black-eyed Susans in the garden. I added a texture in Photoshop.

Fall Foliage

We took a little drive in the afternoon to take photos of fall foliage. As it turned out we were a few weeks too early.

Rubber Bands

This photo shows rubber bands on top of plexi glass. One flash beneath the whole setup and another flash on top.

I have not updated this blog in days but I did continue to take photos. So today I will upload photos for the past few days. This photo shows the lockers at Safeway.

Washing Machine

This photo shows our washing machine. I put one flash inside and another flash behind it. Maybe I should have added some more lights or played around with the strobe placement but it was getting close to midnight already.

Get Well

This photo shows my pain killer and my penicillin. I am looking forward to feeling better again in a few days.

Foggy Gas Station

I took this photo around 2am. It was very foggy and everything looked very mysterious.

Break Time

I finished the first week of 'One Photo a Day' and now it is time to celebrate with coffee and a movie before I have to go to work.

Front Range Sunset

I only took four photos today. This image shows a Front Range sunset. I used my Sigma 150-500mm lens and zoomed-in all the way to get closer to this mountain.

A photo of a silhouette of leaves in front of a colorful sunset.

John Deere

A long-exposure night photo. The shutter was set to 15 seconds.

Thursday, September 4, 2008


A photo of roses. I used black paper taped to the wall as background. Lighting was provided by two flashes situated high to the right and left of the subject. Both flashes were set to low power to keep the scene somewhat dark.

Wednesday, September 3, 2008


I wanted to take photos of Daisy but she did not seem to like the flash today so I ended up with only a few snapshots.

Empty Bottle

The lighting for this photo of an empty cream soda bottle was provided by a Sunpak 383 flash. The bottle was placed on top of some plexiglass. The flash was placed beneath the plexiglass and bounced off the wall in the background.

About This Blog

This site is a 'one photo a day' photoblog. I take, edit, and post one new photo each day for as many days in a row as possible; hopefully reaching 365 consecutive days. The purpose is to improve my photography skills and to force myself to be more creative by coming up with something new every single day even when just staying around the house.

Thanks for visiting!

Your Own Photo Project

Here are some tips on how to get started with your own daily photography project.

Bring Your Camera Everywhere
You never know when a photography opportunity will present itself. Some great photos can be taken while going shopping or on your way to work so get in the habit of taking your camera with you whenever you can.

Make Posting Easy
Having an easy way to post and archive photos is very important. Flickr is good option or use blog software such as Wordpress or Blogger. Try to update your blog every day so that you do not get backlogged and start feeling overwhelmed.

The project is a great way to experiment and try something new. Never tried night photography? Never used off-camera flash? Do it now!

Mention a Few Words
Add a small description to your photos. It will help you remember down the road and it helps your project's followers as well.

Do not Stop
You will get tired of taking a photo every single day and you will feel like you ran out of ideas. Just stick to it. The end result will be worth it!
