    Back again. (Briefly)
    It is has been a wild and busy few years. Spring of 2015 we moved, welcomed our 3rd child into the world, and a few months later I switched jobs. Incidentally, that job venture dried up forcing me into something temporary. Looks like I have a good steady job opportunity coming up but we shall see. Life has been busy. Some Misc. thoughts on photography and improving the game. After putting it aside for awhile I have been looking at the archives and critiquing my work. If you aren't sure about a photo you took, chances are you'll come back and delete it in two years. I've often struggle with deleting photos, but I've found if it didn't make the grade the first time it probably won't in the future. Some of my favorites are also the simplest compositions. Don't complicate a photo with to many themes. It is easier to forgive and enjoy a simple chord with a few notes than a full fledged orchestra with a squeaking violin. Someday you'll find your orchestra. The famous maestros didn't start big. I do keep personal interest things that are simply to record an event and not to be this awesome photo. Photography isn't just art, but a method to record things. If all those birthday pictures of your kid you took flopped, keep them anyway. You'll be glad 30 years from now and your children will thank you. Thanks!! Clark

    Some Changes
    Hello, I hid a bunch of pages and posts that I had on this blog. You'll need to visit My Website to find all the pictures I had on here. I hope to be able to bring all the old posts that were on here back again, but that will take some time. Thanks!!

    Hi,

             I added a March 2013 gallery to my smugmug page. I'll probably add to it seeing the the month is not yet out.

    Thanks!!

    An Update
    Hello,

            I haven't posted to this blog for awhile, but I haven't died. Most of you have seen this, but for those you who have not, here is a link.

    http://clarkgraber.smugmug.com/
          
           I am just trying it out to see if I like it and so it could disappear. I am also trying decide what to do with this blog. I may link to it from smugmug, but due to the publicity I hope to get, I may turn off comments so that some of you that wish to remain private can do so. (I would have to get rid of all the comments on previous posts also) I believe when you comment it leaves a link to you and your information.

    Not sure if this gonna happen yet, but thought I would let you know.

    Photos for the Month of September 2012
    Hello,
           The colors are back!! Enjoy it very much!!

    I think it is Milkweed. Used a long lens to make the setting sun larger.Chippy just got done washing his hands from a snacking on a nacho chip. We won't bother saying how he got it because my wife just told me there was a sign that we were not supposed to feed the animals. It grabbed me. I took it. This one and the two before were from the same day. Took my family for a picnic and then a slow drive through the country taking photos along the way. Anyway that is all for now.

    Till later!!

    Photo of the Week (September 5, 2010)
    Camera: Nikon D5000
    Lens: 70-300 Sigma 
    Shutter Speed: 1/25th Second
    Aperture: F22
    ISO:400
    Focal Length:195mm
    Exposure Bias: None
    White Balance: Cloudy
               The sun was on the other side of these grasses and it helped make a really cool play on light and shadow. I have another of the same thing with flash but it doesn't have the same effect as this one. God's lighting so much better than our wimpy little flashes. I am not sure how I managed to actually get this clear of a shot at that slow of a shutter. I guess I was supposed to have this picture.
