Under the Neon Lights by LiiLiiFish

I love the colors in this image. The reflection is very cool, I thought that it was some water with ripples in it at first, then I real...

Drop II by RobinHedberg

Excellent use of your depth of field. Noting that a 5.6 aperture was used to bring our attention to the water drop on the chain link. I...

Summer Sun and Fun on the Drums

Journal Entry: Thu May 29, 2014, 1:26 PM
Well it is a lovely Thursday here in good old Iowa! The sun is out and the temps are up in the high 80's so it is wonderful outside. Me I am working indoors as always, but I will be outside later on this afternoon to enjoy what is left of the daylight.  The sun has been staying out until around 8:30 or so at night and it gets up before I do at 5:30 in the morning, so lots of sun for me!

Lets see, I have been drawing, working on my designs and some actual drawings in Illustrator for a change. It is fun to get back into things that have been set aside for the time being. I am also working on some new projects for work as well. Mostly IT stuff but it is fun for me anyways. I have been invited to attend a free baseball game in the boxes by one of the local radio stations. It should be fun and free food and beer for all who show up.  Now just to act civilized when I am in attendance!

TV shows... lets see I haven't watched any in over a month, so nothing there.. :D I am looking forward to some of the newer movies that are showing up soon to a theater near me. I don't know if any of you attend the theater so I won't bore you with show names. :D

Other than these things just biking and playing the drums as usual. I have been working on some of the finer pieces created by Megadeath and Judas Priest as well as several other metal selections. The drum patterns are complex and a bit tiring after a couple of hours but I am getting them together slowly but surely. 

I hope all of you are well and I look forward to chatting with more of you online as the summer progresses!  Have a lovely weekend!

Well where to start....
Well, lets see, first My father met my mother then the stork dropped me down in the cabbage patch. But my father being a busy farmer did not notice me for a couple of months, during that time I was raised by wild boars... Then the Ufo's came and here I am..... Wait, that's not correct...

Okay, lets try I grew up on a rural farm in Iowa, joined the army, traveled the world for 12 years then ended right back in Iowa. I currently reside in Hiawatha, Iowa where I work full time at the Ottsen Oil Company and write on the weekends.

I like photography, painting, writing, hanging out at the coffee shops and my friends. I never seem to have any down time as I always have projects in the works. Even now I am writing one novel and two short stories at the same time whilst playing my drums and guitar.

Life is for the living and I am getting some living done!

I have several years photography experience. I started taking photos when I was seven with my grandmothers old brownie camera. I bought my first camera of my own when I was 12 and have never looked back. I also love to work with 3D programs and photoshop. I have used Illustrator and several other graphic programs as well. As always if you have a specific question on any techniques that I may use please send me a note or leave a message and I will get back to you with the answer if I know it.

Currently I am still using a Cannon 30D (one tough camera!) Digital camera and I am planning on purchasing the 50D later on for my work.
