Here is a selection of some of my past work:
In this shot I used two off camera flashes. One was up and to the left of the subject and the other was behind the sheet in the background to brighten it up. In Photoshop I smoothed out his skin and used a black and white adjustment layer. I used a layer mask on the black and white layer and painted with black to reveal color in his eyes.
Mother & Child
I used a remotely triggered flash through an umbrella in order to be softer diffused light. In Photoshop I was able to make the background solid black and then converted it to black and white.
I shot this in my apartment while trying out my new extension tubes. I had the flash under the flower to give it a glowing look.
I saw the sunset reflecting off this pond in Driggs on our drive home from Jackson and I had to stop. I use a tripod with long exposure to capture the fading colors of the sunset. I boosted the saturation and vibrance some in Photoshop.
My dad has had this old truck sitting out in the trees for years. He always says he is going to fix it up but hasn’t got around to it yet. I figured it might as well be used as art if nothing else. I took three different exposures and use HDR photo merge in Photoshop. I then increased the saturation, vibrance, and contrast. I also added a vignette.
To get this shot I set up my tripod on a rock in the river. I almost fell in getting there. I used a neutral density filter that allowed me to use a longer exposure to give the water a ribbony effect. There are three photos stitched together for a vertical panorama.
Mormon Row Barn
The barns on Mormon Row are special to my family because that is where my Great Great Grandparents settled. It probably can’t be proven but they probably helped the Moltens build the barns. This photo is multiple photos stitched together in Photoshop. Minimal edits to levels and saturation.
Lodge Pole Forrest
Shot this while hiking in Yellow Stone National Park near Cave Falls. I thought this was an interesting combination of texture and lines. I particularly like it in black and white.
I found these berries in my in-laws front yard while we were there visiting for Christmas. This shot was hand held and I used a wide aperture to get good bokeh in the background. In Photoshop I increased the saturation then applied a black and white adjustment layer. I then used a layer mask and painted with black to reveal the red in the berries.
An interesting combination between a brush fire and a thunderstorm. Adjusted levels and saturation in Photoshop.
