Christian Library Partner

I am honored that Terrence Lovett, CEO of Christian Library on Demand, asked Sullivan J Photography to partner with his organization. He stated that their EnLive Smart TV app on Google TV, Samsung Smart Hub, Yahoo TV and soon ROKU devices is available to 91 million Internet streaming devices. If you know SJP, you know that we typically work with interior designers and various art buyers for the hospitality industry and large corporate offices. When approached about this new opportunity, I thought it would be a great opportunity to offer Fine Art Photography to the public in a different way.

I love art, and to have my images offered to a variety of individuals who personally want them, is very exciting. All images will be signed by me with a certificate of authenticity. At this moment there is no limit on the number of times an image can be purchased, but I will remove an image if I feel too many have been ordered. These images are not snapshots. I work hard on my art, and want them to be special for each individual who purchases them. There will be no mass production here. :)

Christian Library on Demand wrote an amazing press release that I’d like to share with you all. You can read it here here or download the PDF here: Christian Library on Demand PartnerPR.
This is a small blurb on their website, but to read more about me and Christian Library on Demand, check out the link above or download the pdf.

Canon Lenses and Big Bear Lake

This is short and sweet! Sharing a bit of a sweetness here. Yep, I’m being corny but here you go…

Most of you know that I’m a Canon user. Canon reduced the price of some of their lenses and I wanted to share them with you. Click here or on the image to check out these and more. All I can say is sweet; thanks Canon!

My favorite reduction is the the 180mm Macro Lens and the 70-200 F2.8 lens.

Of course I have to share my latest adventure. Kevin and I had an amazing time hiking in Big Bear, California. This is our fast get away place when we need a break from the fast pace of Southern California. It’s awesome to smell the pine trees and fresh air up high on the mountain. Below is one of my sunset shots from the trip. :)

Where do you go when you need a break? I’d love to read about it in the comments.

Latest Macro Lens Paintings

Today I’d like to share my latest Macro Lens Paintings.  I was honored to have Popular Photography publish my fine art tips in their magazine.  If you would like to read more about this style of photographing click here.

Yellow Pop

With Yellow Pop I focused on the yellow daisy for 1 second and then did a bit of motion blur on the rest of the flowers.

Daisy Swirl

Daisy Swirl

With Daisy Swirl I focused on the back of the Gerber daisy and then did a motion blur with a bit of a swirl focus on the stem.   I just love making these images.  They are one of a kind and so much fun to process.

Hope you all have an amazing Labor Day!!

Cheers,

Gerber Daisies

Wow, it’s been a week already!  Time is just a flying…  :)

I just signed a nice contract with a company so I’ve been working on that but for now let’s show you some of my fun work with Gerber Daisies.  I always say when you start to photograph a subject stand back and shoot.  Pay attention to what you like within the subject and then start getting closer and closer.  Grab a Macro lens or add a filter lens.  If you’re really into it go for an extension tub or a reverse ring adapter.

I’m Back

We had an amazing 2 week vacation and now I’m back to reality.  It’s always fun enjoying our family vacations.  Even though I was on vacation,  I was still working with clients.  I understand time constraints that Art Buyers  & Creative Directors have when a proposal must be submitted.   I don’t mind and I’m grateful that I love what I do.

Ashley has been designing our next eBook.  I’m so excited for you all to see it!  I’m also excited to get back to networking and reading a variety of blogs I have signed up for.  I have met some really creative people on the net and miss reading blogs, viewing images and learning new ways to improve my work and business.

Just a quick image for fun!  I’m in the mood for B & W.  :)   This was shot using natural light.

Keep your Camera with You

Keep your camera with you all of the time. I say this because if you love photography like me and you don’t have your tripod or that perfect lens, it shouldn’t matter. Some people get all caught up on equipment and feel that their images won’t be worth anything because they don’t have the correct setup. Yes, when you plan a shoot it makes all the difference, but when you can’t it’s okay too.

Today, I’d like to show you a couple of fun pictures I made while the hubby and I were visiting my Aunt and Uncle. I didn’t have time for a tripod setup or wait for that perfect light and again that’s ok because I focused on composition and techniques.

After our visit, I’m always excited to add my photographs to Lightroom to white flag the photos that I like and when I have time, I go back to process my favorites.

This picture is from my Aunt’s yard. I really liked the repetitive feel, but wanted to add a bit of drama to the succulents so I increased the structure and vibrance. To take the shot I held my breath and put my elbows to my side.  I actually could have a full day of photographing my aunts garden. :) Wish I had her green thumb!

Succulent – 1/20 @ f13 ISO 100 Macro Lens 100mm

One of the places they took us was the Hearst’s pier. As we walked to the place where Hearst had to have ships come in to bring all his goodies for his Castle, there were some amazing eucalyptus trees. I knew I wanted to make a motion blur of the trees. I slowed the shutter speed and moved my camera vertically to get what I wanted as seen below. Minor adjustments were made in Photoshop.

They also took us to see Elephant Seals on the coast. I noticed this ladybug on a rail on the walkway. I liked the way the light was hitting her, so I handheld the shot with a shallow depth-of-field so she would be the focal point of the shot.

Ladybug 1/45 @f11 ISO 100 Macro lens 100mm

 

All of the photographs were handheld and shot on the fly as we enjoyed our mini vacation with family.  Since I’m on the subject of vacation…the hubby and I will be taking two weeks off to have some fun!  Yep, my camera will be with me.  ;)

So take your camera everywhere and shoot, shoot, shoot! I bet you’ll find something that will excite you. :)

Always feel free to add links to the comment section of your fun times shooting on the fly. I know others would love to see them as much as I would.

I’ll be back in a couple of weeks.  Happy vacation to me.  :)
