These represent some of my better digital images with or without just an on-camera flash for portability sake. There are not any long exposure shots on a tripod, since people cannot hold very still. I've spent countless hours to capture and enhance this collection of sights over the last few years, which I thought were interesting and perhaps more on the artistic side of life, or images of other people's artistic expressions. A little about my gear: I had finally invested in a 16M crop-sensor Nikon D7000 in 2012. In 2013 I started getting into some studio lighting work. In mid 2014 I got a more expensive 36M full-frame Nikon D810 w/Nikkor 28mm to 300mm zoom lens, and gradually started learning how to use this equipment properly. Then in early 2018 I also added a 45M full-frame Nikon D850 w/Nikkor 24mm to 120mm lens to my gear. I still use all 3 cameras on a regular basis. The D7000 stays in my workshop to capture images of our projects to share with our many out of State clients. I try to shoot at the lowest possible ISO setting with a higher than normal aperture for better color saturation, clarity, and focal depth than you normally see even with many other 'professional photographers', who it appears still do not know how to use their equipment. I have to use a flash for most hand held shots, which is not the most flattering light, compared to when I can use my studio lighting. If you like some of these images they can be used for your computer's wallpaper if you save them off, crop, and resize them to fit your monitor's resolution. Just please respect my copy-right of these images and do not claim they were your own. You have my permission to alter, share, and print these images, just as long as they are not for sale. I am not looking to make $ off these images, since I make a decent living designing and making custom copper creations for our clients, which I have used my better than standard photography to promote on-line. This is more just my passion. We all need a hobby, and I would like to share a little beauty within our otherwise dismal existence. Many of my posted images off the full resolusion image file download to be able to see the amazing clarity most of these images have. In most cases I've only just asked for the minimum 10 points download fee, which is equal to 10 cents each. This is just your way to gift me a tiny 'thank you' for sharing these thousands of images here. Although, don't feel bad if you cannot afford this, since I seem to get very few downloads or donations to my pool. This hobby has cost me around $50,000, yet I have not made back even 1% of that. Other than with the sale of my copper sheet metal creations, which has made it possible to afford this gear and pay some models. If you like photography, but have a hard time finding inspiration; it has helped me to connect with some Meetup Photography groups to explore some of the better photo ops in your area at the right seasons. It will help get you out of the house and see the amazing in what you may have otherwise taken for granted. If you have a decent DSLR camera I highly advise you to shoot in 'Manual' Mode as much as possible to help train yourself to understand photography in ways you did not imagine possible. Try to set your camera at the lowest ISO setting it has, which is usually 100. Otherwise you are literally blindfolding your camera sensor and wasting the potential image quality of your camera.
