Hello everyone! In a nutshell and not looking for sympathy really but Ive been dealing with 2 hip replacement surgeries over the past 2 years and it has definitely put a damper on my shooting and even my editing. I have shoots over 2 years old that I haven't done anything with yet! But, as I get better and look forward to no more surgeries in the future I hope I will have much more to show and I hope to get much better and improve. I hope you all like the new work but please feel free to critique as well. Im not sure anyone will be harder on me that I am to myself but I like to hear opinions and ideas. Thanks to all who have commented and bought prints and I look forward to this coming year :)

There is a nice public Japanese garden in my area that people rarely go to, I finally took advantage of that last year and it was wonderful to meet up with Theadina again and catch up and shoot with her new look. :)

Submitted by Brian taman88.deviantart.com/ this is a really cool take on a shot I did of Emily. I like how it is recognizable but it took a creative and artistic spin.. thanks Brian!
original Emily Wilderness 15 by DR0ck and new version Dryad by Taman88

On a side note, I get asked often if people can do drawings or edits and I almost always say yes if you show me the work, link it back to the original and its not for commercial purposes!
Sadly, 95% of people who I grant permission to I never hear from again which worries me almost to the point of not allowing it anymore but its things like this which make me glad I havent done that yet.
  • Listening to: The music in my head this morning
  • Reading: what Im writing
  • Watching: the clock until I go to shoot :)
  • Playing: with my mind
  • Eating: I wish!
  • Drinking: definitely need to!

I do not wish to seem irrational but it is unnerving to find your work edited and then posted somewhere else! I like to post my images at a nice resolution for all to enjoy and I do not want to be forced to re-think because of copyright violations.
On the other hand, if you are interested in owning a print just make a request and I will be happy to do what I can depending on the particular image. Thank you!

I use a Canon M2 or M3 and mostly I use the 24-70L. Other than that I just say experiment, practice and read all you can about the style you want to do. You dont have to have a very fancy camera to get great shots. Thanks for all the great comments! :)
