As has been the norm for me with photography, I set out to try an idea and end up with something different than I envisioned.
I haven't taken any new smoke pictures in over a year. There are ideas I have thought about how to capture a better smoke image to work with but life/work has sidelined my progress. I tend to fiddle with old shots and see how I can achieve something varied from the last smoke composition.
I usually use only one smoke plume and then copy and paste. This one was done with a shot that had some "technical problems". I had plenty of light spill over from colored lights and hot spots. Reverting back to my "why not" instead of "why" attitude, at At 2 A.M. I accepted I was not going to win the insomnia battle and started changing blending modes and settings. I figured this would be a dead end, but it opened the door wider. Unfortunately I still have the same work deadline as I did yesterday so it may be a bit before I can fully implement some of my new found knowledge on a fully realized piece.

Taken on a Mix Stage at Sony Pictures Studios a couple years ago. This week marks my 10th consecutive year working for them, but the big change is I'm working from home in another state.
When I took the picture it would have never been an option. It is incredible how fast things can evolve.

Had a couple days between projects. Too exhausted to go out and shoot so I played with some ideas I had using a single smoke plume. My Everest moment seeing how much patience I have. Lots of edits here, but other than curves, layers, blend modes and copy and paste nothing else was used. The shot was cropped and significantly down sized. Sort of smoke circle inception. You can endlessly zoom in on the full size version. Filling my 16 inch screen its at 1%. Obsessed, a little, crazy, ... a lot.

For someone that retired early a few months ago I have worked some long hours the past two weeks.
I received a few calls asking "if I could .... ". I had agreed to do projects with both parties last year and still feel the need to honor those commitments. So it looks like new photos are on hold once again.
Certain shots I vividly remember taking. This is one of those. I thought this image of the kids and thousands others had ended up in the abyss I call my office after the move last summer.
Organizational skills are not my strong suit. My system mainly consists of piles of stuff in boxes, newer stuff near the top. But today I found the drive.
Over the years Charlotte has become an easy subject , Sam on the other hand makes photography a challenge. Usually I get the "Wallace and Gromit" smile. But around his sister he lets his guard down.

A week after a record of 25 inches of snow the big melt off has begun. Goldwater Lake has a healthy population of ducks all year round, I did see a couple Blue Herron but were a little to distant, perhaps another day.
