Autumn Still Life

Finally seeing evidence of the seasons changing


Finally, the weather has a hint of autumn in the air!  To recognize that we are actually in mid-October, I thought some images with a harvest theme made sense.  Pumkins and gourds are such a symbol of this time of year and have marvelous colors and textures.

I’m having lots of fun playing with arrangements and looking for the best lighting effects. Right now, my equipment is very basic.  Just something for a background and an LED light to get the highlights and shadows in the right spots.  If things go well, maybe I will start a legitimate studio set up later on.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
