I really like its beautiful simplicity, and what may appear to be massive – is actually just a single grain of sand. I photographed it with a microscope using a method known as “focus stacking” in order to achieve greater detail. This is when you take multiple exposures with different focus points and then blend them together.

Sometimes curiosity makes me impulsive. While grocery shopping this strange spiky fruit caught my eye and I had to purchase it. Apparently it is called a Horned Mellon or African Cucumber or better yet Blowfish Fruit. I cut it in half and grabbed my macro lens… To me it looks like the mountainous desert landscape of a strange alien planet. I envision some fantasy-like fuzzy creatures migrating across the surface.

While staying in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I dragged the large format camera and some 4×5 color film down to catch the sunrise. It was perfect. The final image titled “Transcendence” involved taking a fast exposure to catch the sunrise, a slow exposure to blur the ocean waves, and then blending the two into one photograph.

I was chosen to create a piece to be hung at the City Center Gallery in Ohio for an event sponsored by The Arts Initiative of Columbus. Each artist was assigned a plant that grows on their green rooftop. I was assigned Sedum, a plant known as the Stone Crop… I decided to break the plant into it’s 3 main parts and create a psychedelic triptych using a combination of photography and digital manipulation. From the bottom up: The roots, the stems, and the flowers – each framed separately.

“Fairy Rings” of mushrooms are just not as magical when they happen to surround a tipped over garbage can. The juxtaposition of the two elements, however, does make for a great photograph.

I blended a few images together and designed my own custom yoga mat. I also sewed a bag for it with zipper pockets and a little mushroom… Namaste.

My lionhead bunny’s hair grows so much that she looks like just a ball of fur. Every so often she needs a major haircut. After trimming and buzzing I realize I had created an entirely new fuzzy creature on the floor. Beware.

Inside/Outside The Camera

The function of a camera is to create a representation of objects in reality. I began questioning why the objects are always outside of the camera. Can they not be inside? A view camera is very large, big enough to place objects inside of… On the left is an extension cord photographed outside of the camera. On the right is an extension cord photographed inside of the camera.
