Jrdpa's Generic and Whatever Posts

IMO; I sometimes feel frustrated by the traditionalist and derivative nature of so much of photography. In The-Old-Days, what a camera could produce was…

Unfortunately, this is not uploading to PhotoBlog at full-res for some reason, so you’ll have to live with a smaller size. I was 18-years-old when I took…

A while ago, someone commented that most female portraits were in soft-light, and wondered why. I opined that it was because soft-light is considered…

Here are a few more shots from the photo-walk I took last Sunday. This fellow was sitting on a bench taking in the sights of the main-drag, and we had a…

Yesterday was beautiful here, so I decided to go into the Big Town (it has traffic-lights and everything), and shoot whatever I happened to see. There were…

I’m taking a break from working outside today and I’ve gone back to develop some images that I had taken a few days ago, but not gotten to yet.

This is the last set from my Monday walk through the Big-City. I’ll have to do that again sometime. One thing that I often have trouble doing for B&W images is…
