Botox Advertisement It is such a cliche any more. The scams people pull to sell their "miracle elixirs". You see them all the time, but do you ever take a closer look? Notice the "hair triangle" in the woman's hair on her left side about an inch above her ear. There is no way that hair formation could happen twice! The photo is obviously completely Photoshopped! There are many other signs of this. Maybe the next time you are thinking of buying a "Miracle Elixir" you'll take a closer look!

Suzie Tremmel Student Picture Edits Education Example
Suzie Tremmel said she would like my advice on her recent picture she posted on my Facebook Student Page. Below is her original image and then my suggested image. A couple things about my suggestions first. I was working from a very small JPEG so quality is lost especially in the sky. I also left the spot in the sky area of the water to show what dust on the sensor can do in an image. I teach how to see dust on the sensor and cleaning in my Intermediate class.
First, I cropped off some of the rocks/gravel on the right. There's just to much of it in the image. It makes it look like an unnatural road. It also keeps my eye from appreciating the leading lines and details of the mountains. My eye hangs on the rock area which isn't the most interesting part. I enhanced the lines and color a bit to make the picture pop a bit more. I increased the blue reflection a bit to reflect the blue sky more and balance out the sky color. I worked to also bring out the various different shades of green in the trees and land. I brightened the mountain rock to make it feel more like the morning/evening sun caressing the earth. I also dropped the horizon line a little bit out of the center. This was a quick edit. Could have done a little more with a full res. image.
These are some of the things I teach in my Lightroom, Fine Art and Photoshop classes. I hope this helps!

First ever Mirrorless Global Shutter Camera Global Shutter is not new, but new to mirrorless. It is great for any photography dealing with motion. It freezes the image rather than showing motion. It can also capture images much faster for a higher Frames/sec. It's biggest advantage to me is that it can sync a flash at shutter speeds up to 1/80,000 of a second! Some disadvantages are that it can increase read noise, somewhat eliminate motion blur when you want it and often needs a reduces pixel count.

Covid-19 Effects of Thailand's Tourist Industry
Hi All, I have just premiered my photo documentary on YouTube. This is a documentary that I produced which illustrates a very unique period in Thailand's history. A great amount of income comes from Thailand's tourist industry. This is a short 11 minute slide show that not only documents the severe lack of tourism during the height of Covid's effects, but at the same time I try to demonstrate the beauty of Thailand.
If you like the slide show, I hope you will be kind and subscribe to my channel. Here is the link:

20 Years of Durham Tech. Photography Students This year I am celebrating my 20th year anniversary of teaching students photography at Durham Tech. College! The photo below represents the over 2000 students I have taught at Durham Tech. and a project I have been working on for all those years. Yeah...that was one long photo project! LOL. Took a very very long time just to put all the photos together for this one picture alone. In my first course, Photography: The Basics, I had the students do a self-portrait as their first assignment in order to start educating the students on camera controls and composition. I have collected these portraits for the past 20 years to ultimately make this one image. I am very proud of my students and how well they have done. I have taught photography since the fifth grade to my peers in school and have taught at many colleges, schools, organizations, and businesses. Durham Tech. College has been the longest. When I first started teaching at Durham Tech. most students had a film camera. Now most students use digital cameras. The students and myself have volunteered to help many local community projects in the past relative to photography. My students have always rated my classes as the best around. The students have been from ages 16 to 83 years of age, from all walks of life, and from many counties and countries. I not only teach photography, I am very good at photography and have won many International, national and local awards as well.

The Mystery Cave - My Story - Thailand, Phang-Nga These days everything is turning to video. We watch TV and movies, people are always posting video they took on YouTube and the like from their phones. TikTok even has promoted short video's. However, sadly, this leaves out very important qualities that come from reading and still photography. With reading a story we have to use our imagination. An imagination that builds upon itself as we read. Still photography, does the opposite and the same. With a photograph, we have time to inspect all the elements included in the photo. We get time to learn more about the surroundings or elements included within the frame. We can gain more insight to a specific area or location, for example. Within one frame a whole story can be told. A photograph can also accompany writing which can help us to more understand the story with specifics and still allow us to use our imagination. Photo's have a certain "je ne sais quoi" that video doesn't have. Below is a slide show that I hope you will enjoy. It is a moment of life that I hope will entertain and educate. ***Since I have no control over how long it might take you to read certain slides, nor have control of how long you want to look at a photo, I have set the slide view time to 30 seconds, but you have control to make the time shorter (or longer) by clicking on the next slide showed below with thumbnails. Click the start Arrow on the lower right to start the slide show or just manually click thumbnails***

Moray eel This eel was not happy I was there. This isn't a great shot, but considering I got one was a plus. As I tried to get closer for the shot, so did he, but not in a good way. He would like jut out of his hidey hole. I figured I had better quickly move on.

"Moray eel bites are infamously painful and can cause extensive bleeding. This is because they have teeth that jut backwards so that prey cannot easily escape. Moray eels also have a second set of jaws known as pharyngeal jaws that help them hold on to prey. Moray eel bites can range from minor to serious." “Moray eels are poisonous. Among all moray eels five species even can give a deadly bite."

New Fern Restaurant Panyee Island, Thailand Lots of interesting thing on Panyee Island. It is a very small "floating" island. Originally a fishing village, but now I think more dedicated to being a place where all the many tours can take the customers for lunch by boat. Most of the island is dilapidated. However two things stand out, one is the temple in very good condition and two is this restaurant in excellent condition. Accept for the hand rail, LOL. I think that mainly right handed people go to this restaurant.

Nature's Organ I love this photo. It's so much fun. If you've ever stared at the clouds to try and see things in the cloud's shapes, this is a ton better.  If the picture could be presented larger, you would see more shapes that take your imagination in every part you look. The textures, colors and shapes alone are really interesting. How did nature create so many different shaped and colored strands all in the same place. Warning: If you stare at one spot in the picture to long you will go blind! Ok, well, it all depends on your definition of to long and imagination.

Curious in This Day and Age Does Reality follow Video or Does Video follow Reality?

1. Plot Line: People are to self-absorbed to realize they are making the Pandemic worse. They're just hangin out like normal till they make the big one come.

2. Plot Line: Traitors to the Constitution. Enemies within the ranks. Tyranny's attempt. Will the good guys win?

3. Godzilla vs. King Kong.

4. Avengers: Infinity War

5. Abbott and Costello Go to Mars (1953)

6. The Love Bug (1968)

7. The Men Who Awoke: 1933 series of short stories

Did we make it into a future for ourselves because of video or did video just predict the future? Many movies have been made with these same themes as above. My personal favorite type of movies for this purpose is zombie movies. History movies are forgotten.

Cool Wall Paper The longer I stare at this the more I see. I like the flow of the flower's lines. The blurry leaves on the left side keep changing images that I see. I see an Asian Panda sitting with a skinny head and right arm pointing away. I see a man or monkey with a big mouth and his nose is almost touching the left edge of the photo. I could go on. It's fun when images do that. Kinda like looking up at puffy clouds. I could easily turn this picture into a border runner along the wall. I applied artistic brushes to the image which can be seen more the larger the image.

Hoover Dam 1 and 2 Through the years there have been many pictures taken of the Hoover Dam. I wanted to try getting a different angle than had been done before. As far as I can initially tell, this was a unique angle. I just can't decide which one I like better. One has the road as the dominant feature in the picture. The other splits the dominance with the river and bottom of the dam. Visually I like the vertical one better, but as documentary, the horizontal Illustrates the dam better. Sooo...please tell me which one you think is better? Thanks!

People in Upper Antelope Canyon I'm posting this pic to demonstrate my previous comments and help give a perspective on the photos posted from Upper Antelope Canyon. You have groups coming in and then turning around to go back out. The shots I got, I consider lucky. Tight spaces, no tripod, sloooow shutter speeds, high ISO and people bumping into you all the way.

Upper Antelope Canyon Very cool place to see, but seriously not at all photographer friendly. Was actually very disappointed. The Indian Reservation is only concerned about cash. There are apparently at least 5 tour companies running people through this small channel. There are so many groups being pushed through there that it is hard to even stop much less take pictures. Add this with the low light changing constantly, and your lucky to get any shots at all. I was not able to take the "photographers tour", which costs extra, due to time and tour transportation, but apparently that tour is also slaved to the masses going through the Canyon. By the way, I was told they are dropping the photographers tour in about a's hindering them from pushing more people through the Canyon. Beautiful light comes through the Canyon, even though I was not there at the right time of year.

Las Vegas Strip I was pretty happy with this shot. Considering it's at ISO 6400, while moving....did I mention how many drinks I had in a half hour? This shot basically has most of the primary hotels on the strip, The Flamingo, Bellagio, The Mirage, Harrah's, Bally's, Caesar's Palace, Paris, The Cosmopolitan, The Linq, Linq Promenade, High Roller, etc. I stayed at the Linq's. Wasn't bad, but watch out for the bate and switch! What ever you are getting, make sure they give you the price in writing. I was told $30 for an upgrade and they ended up charging $49/night. Not to mention the daily $40 "Resort Fee" for nothing at all. Did enjoy the business trip. I did gamble way to much. I placed my whole two dollars in the slot machine and lost it in 20 seconds or less. Did have some interesting experiences.

Mother Natures' Collage Yeah, first glance you'd probably pass this by. Heck you're probably ready to do that to this photo. That is one of the problems in today's digital age. People have been sensitized to react to only certain kinds of photos. Some examples, ones with lots of color or pretty butterflies or subject. With billions of photos out on the web, TV and in hard copy... people only take time to glimpse a photo. What if there was more to see than what a quick glimpse can give you. What if you took the time to look a little harder. The way I look at it...I think interesting things can sometimes be found.

I'm going to use this picture as an example. It's a picture I like, but many will not. Don't care, I'm posting it cause I personally like it. I see many things and relationships in this image. I decided to call it Mother Natures Collage. To me there are several things going on in here. First, the obvious, new life springing from old. I liked the pattern of the leaves in the frame. Just enough Green to give the eye a place to rest. Normally, I would think sticks running through my whole picture was a terrible look. However, these tree limbs were Red and Blue, they sort of framed the picture, they make a letter and add a second level to looking down. Not sure how they got their color, but then again....mother nature (with just an admitted little saturation). Turning up saturation to much could have started putting unwanted color in the dead leaves and flowers. Then there are the leaves themselves. Besides the interesting geometrical and abstract forms they make, the textures are interesting in themselves. Then there is the fun part for me, just like looking up at clouds, taking a closer look at the leaves' figures can start to look like faces, animals and things. Looking at the image in a small screen obviously makes this difficult to see. I will give an example, I see a bright punk rock hair-do on a guy that has a bird talking into his ear and just above him is a hillbilly. They are to the right of the middle green leaf towards the right edge on the lower part of the picture. The hillbilly has a hillbilly hat, a beard and shaggy bangs. Yeah yeah, yeah...I know what your saying. If I get enough request I'll post a close up of it so you can see for yourself. Each segment of the picture makes a new collage/abstract with new potential figures to discern. If you see anything yourself...please do tell!

MERRY CHRISTMAS Have a Holly Jolly Christmas! Holly is a genus of about 480 species of flowering plants in the family Aquifoliaceae, and the only living genus in that family. The prickly leaves represent the crown of thorns that Jesus wore when he was crucified. The berries are the drops of blood that were shed by Jesus because of the thorns. In Scandinavia it is known as the Christ Thorn. Hope your Holidays are wonderful and thanks to all those that have appreciated my photos and the subtle nuances in them.

Myrtle Beach, SC Sans Pavilion This isn't meant to be a pretty picture. I took it more for documentary purposes. This is the original MB area. It used to have a fairly famous Pavilion in the grass area displayed. At least the "Gay Dolphin" novelty store is still there. This image was shot very soon just after Hurricane Florence past through. Enlarged, you can read the names on the buildings. Not bad for a cellphone camera.

Tranquility Thought I'd save a special one for a special day. Imagine this view. The calmness of the water. The moon and sun creating light. There was a haze off in the distance over the sea. The haze tinted the colors of the clear sky and there was a tropical breeze blowing which I think added in the look of the water. Then there's the Pelicans gliding in the breeze.  Hence...tranquil.  ....and yes the moon was that orange.

Birds Comedy A few interesting things about this shot. Normally, I do not take many pictures of Sea Gulls and Pigeons. The interesting thing at Myrtle Beach was that there were very few Sea Gulls and a lot of pigeons. It used to be greatly reversed. The other reason I liked this image was the comedy that is displayed. I could tell a story based on faces, but I think it becomes obvious if you pay attention.

Fairy Bluebird In this case, I felt the best angle was from the back of the bird. Pic was shot at ISO 3200.

Wild Sweet Pea This flower was about a 1/4" to 1/2" big and easy to pass hiking through the woods. Saw this while hiking through the Eno River.

Sun Lines I could have just taken a normal picture of the boat on the blue ocean, but I wanted a more dramatic light for not only the boat, but the water as well. I waited until the boat was directly in front of the light which not only silhouetted the boat giving it nice shadows, but also made the water sparkle and the sky flat. This can only happen during a certain time of day.
