Heading Home for Christmas by WatchTower513
Heading Home for Christmas
Every year I try to put together a Christmas scene with the Hogwarts express train set, and castle replica. This project took a few days to complete and is the first in a series this year. I don't know yet how many photos Ill manage to create but have at least two or three in mind in the next week.
StPetePier Lightning by WatchTower513
StPetePier Lightning
This was taken last year in St. Petersburg at Demens Landing Park. I was taking photos of the pier hoping to get a shot that stood out. As time went on a storm began to build so I tried adding lightning to the photo. I took over 170 shots and managed to get a few strikes but nothing outstanding. Taking two of the best photos, one with a sail boat and the other with a lightning bolt and merged in Photoshop CC, I added an extra layer to paint over the lightning bolt making it stand out more. After that I did some dodge and burning in Lightroom to help make the photo pop.
ISS and Orion by WatchTower513
ISS and Orion
I took this outside my house 0n 10/3/14 at 6:25 am. This is a composite of two photos taken within minutes of each other The line going down the center is the International space station which was taken at an exposure time of 2 minutes. Only problem was the rest of the stars were also moving and had an almost blurred effect so I combined it with one I took a few minutes earlier to make sure I was in focus.
It's been awhile since I last had any real photos to put up. This past week I finally got some shots I was looking for and will hopefully get more soon. For the next week or two I will be posting photos of lightning that I've taken. Let me know what you think.
Also about time to make more wands for this Halloween. I will start posting pics of their progress as soon as I start.

Thank you for checking out my page. I’m an amateur photographer with hopes of expanding my hobby into a small business, possibly portrait work.   I've been doing this as a hobby for about 6 years now taking pictures whenever I had a chance.  My main subjects were Space Shuttle launches,  air shows, anything nature related, friends and family outings. .  Lighthouses are one of my favorite photo subjects, as is wildlife. Favorite spot for photo opportunities  is Chesnut Park and Key Vista. 

   I've done a few jobs now, 2 weddings, and have a few more lined up. I'm also learning all I can and working hard to expand my portfolio. I see the works of other photographer on this site and it just shows I need to work harder to get that much better. 

I also enjoy drawing, and working with Photoshop. My art pad of choice is my iPad. 

If you Faved one of my pics, Thank you very much!
