National Moth Week: Cool Pics Wrap-Up

29 Jul

Okay, this is it for the moth photo posts (for a while, anyway). I usually do a Single Image Sundays post right about now, but I’m supersizing it for you with a bonus slide show of  select photos I’ve taken & shared in support of National Moth Week, which ends today. Here ’tis:

This project motivated me to expand on the moth photography I was already doing, and I’m happy to report the results have been totally worthwhile. I’ve also enjoyed viewing a ton of interesting moth photos from around the country and have discovered the world of nature photography over at Project Noah (find me there as rsmithing).

Just in case the slide show up top doesn’t render, here’s my favorite image with a link to the whole set on Flickr:

Triple Image Sundays: The Arteest At Work

15 Apr

This space is usually reserved for single image Sundays/Saturdays, but this week, it’s bonus time with a look both behind the scenes and close-up.

Sometimes, the moment presents itself to you and it’s just your job to step up and be a part of it. Awesome when that happens. Bonus: a behind the scenes view of what goes into a shot like this. Not very glamorous, but interesting, perhaps.

Like this? Do me a favor & share it on Twitter — thanks!

What do you think? Have you ever had a photo opportunity present itself to you, and were you ready to get the shot? Do you make a special effort to have your mobile phone ready just in case? Let us hear from you in the comments!
