A green leaf partially eaten by bugs with water drops on it.

This is one of my first photos with my new Tamron 18-200mm lens from Amazon.com. I like the telescopic range, even though the optics and speed are below most Canon lenses.

For editing, I added a lot of contrast in Adobe Camera Raw 5.0 and Photoshop CS5, and cloned or spot healed many specks of dirt on the leaf.

I’m going to start doing a series of “behind the photo” articles in summer 2011 detailing the methodology behind the composition, editing, and presentation of select photos. If you would like to vote for a particular photo for me to prioritize, say so in a comment on this blog post or the associated blog post for said photo. :)

It’s a glass laser block! I used my green laser pointer on glass blocks in the lobby at building 100 at Daytona State College. This was a lot of fun and I enjoy effects like these. I used a six-second exposure and positioned my Canon Rebel XTi on a makeshift tripod and used the 10 sec. timer to avoid jostling it.

These lasers were made for pointing, and that’s just what they’ll do. One of these days these lasers are going to point all over you.

Stamp collecting is so much fun. :) This is a package Dad and I were mailing to Polyester Books in Fitzroy, Australia. It would have been more economical to mail a bigger package because 8 oz. cost us $7.32 to mail.
