Northern Cardinal

The backyard studio is in full swing now. We got some snow and wind with lots of birds looking to my feeder. This cardinal turned away from the wind so his crown is even more upright.

A colleague gave me an old Singer (yes Singer the sewing machine company) flash this week so I put it in a homemade softbox. It's AC powered so I won't burn through batteries and it happens to have a flash trigger so I don't need wires.

My softbox is a simple cardboard box lined with tinfoil with a white cloth in front. Works pretty well, I'd say.

My Latest Exhibitions

Horse Family

Two of my works are showing at the Ramsey Country Library in Shoreview for the next several weeks.  Gallery96 Art Center sponsors a number of exhibitions throughout the year.  The theme for this exhibition is "A Story Told."  I picked a couple horse photos I made at Theodore Roosevelt National park.  My exhibits are 8x12 prints.

I have two other works showing at the Shoreview Community Center for the Gallery96 "What you did or made this summer" exhibition.  This one runs through December 31st.  

Here is one of my submissions at the Shoreview Community Center:
