I Feel Like Buzzing

I took a few minutes, to just snap some shots… Buzzing bees, are a great subject, and a great way to pass some time while waiting. Keeping it short this week, LOTS TO DO, and LOTS OF FUTURE PLANS.

Haters be Hating


Just a very quick follow-up. Recently I have taken some crap for my next project regarding the archery shoot. Someone even posted on my fb wall,,, They hoped that I would take an arrow to the head or neck to teach me a lesson. They quickly removed the post before I could screen capture and show the world what kind of dink bag this guy is. Look its real simple I choose to do things because I can. People may not like everything I do, but it is my choice. Wishing me harm shows some character, and simply put. Just because some will never get off the couch and step outside the comfort zone is not my problem. If hating on me gives your life a sense of satisfaction, well who am I to deny you that brief moment of enjoyment…. I know the risks and will do what I have to do to achieve my goal. That is the difference between me and the haters… I do while they sit. I have not the time nor the dedication to involve myself into an argument with people of this nature. My summary Screw them.. It is all about the photograph. When I post my final composition, then all will be forgotten about how I captured it. Because in reality no one cares anything about the hows they just want to see the image…

The Archer/ My Dedication


I will start off saying, don’t try this at home. Some have said I am crazy for doing this and maybe I am. It is in fact research, I am studying arrow flight for a concept photo I am working on. The shot I am envisioning is what I am calling The ARCHERS ZENITH.

We are also filming all of this activity for or next production of Shoot 2 Thrill.

I can tell you that my initial photos proved a few points to me. I can capture an arrow while in flight, and I can capture this with incredible sharpness. On to the next phase of the project. The Shots.

THE CAST / a Photo shoot / a Video Shoot


Having a concept in my head, I decided to bring a thought to reality. Thus The Cast was born. In planning this I knew that to achieve a final composition one of two paths would have to be chosen. I could position myself and hope that the caster would hit my focal plane during his cast and I would have the proper focus and depth of field at the exact moment to capture the image. This option left a lot to chance. Knowing exactly what I was looking for, I choose the best method to achieve the composition. First I assembled a crew, ( My Family). Which I will add performed better than a group of set managers. My kids know how important photography is to me and they performed at such a high level during this shoot I was proud that once explained to them, they carried out the tasks with little to no instruction. This is one of the big deals during a photo shoot and I am extremely proud of my children and how well they performed.

In a quick summary and with time being a factor, as always, I want to apologize for my lack of posts as of late. Here is the reason and I hope it is a good enough excuse to get me off the hook…. PUN INTENDED!
