Surface Of a Wet Moon

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/21082372-surface-of-a-wet-moon
Maybe what the Moon would look like if it had an a breathable atmosphere, with trees camouflaging the sides of craters, and water pooling in it's pockmarked surface. No spacesuits needed for the explorers in the distance. Taughannock Falls State Park, New York-USA. This is part of my Monochromatic collection on RedBubble, available in print, Throw Pillows, laptop and Phone Cases, and Tote Bags.

Aurora In Micro

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/21031208-aurora-in-micro
My first series of attempts at decent smoke photography. Experimenting with some selective coloring via Photoshop.

Each Other

These two trees keep each other company in the early evening sun of late summer. There were some pretty nice clouds that day, and the long grass of the field really picked up some wonderful red tones from the sun that enhanced the golden color the grass takes on at this time of year. This photo is part of my Landscapes collection on RedBubble, available in print, Throw Pillows, laptop and Phone Cases, and Tote Bags.

Photonic Emission

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/11788404-photonic-emission?c=30606-abstract
This is a drop of water and glycerin on a CD, with natural light from the late afternoon sun shining through the window. I have always loved how light behaves when entering a drop of water, and the CD added some 'natural' lighting effects. I used a 44mm extension tube with my Sigma 17-70mm lens, @ 70mm. It is part of my Abstract  collection on RedBubble, available in print, Throw Pillows, laptop and Phone Cases, and Tote Bags.

It's All In Your Head

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/20957195-its-all-in-your-head
Multiple exposure photo using 3 photos combined. Processed in Photoshop CS5. Wanted to try out the multiple exposure photography craze for a while, but trying to see how far it could be pushed. This is a pretty standard attempt, just to get my feet wet, but I thought everything lined up in a interesting way.

Offerings

This was originally a well lit interior scene that needed a little something. It is a photo manipulation combining 3 of my photos:
1) The room which was lit by natural light, and of course the lamp. Taken at Mohonk Mountain House, NY
2) The portrait of my lovely girlfriend, who was lit from beneath by a living room lamp in the dark to get that eerie look (she is not eerie looking normally, but beautiful). A bit of masking and lowered the overall opacity to give it the slightly transparent look
3) Texture was added using a photo I took of a battered concrete basement floor, which I toned down quite a bit. I tried to keep it from being over done and let it be more on the subtle side.
I tried to not go too 'dark' with this piece, just wanted to keep the intention of the 'ghost' a bit mysterious by not going too obvious one direction or another.

Ignition

A studio light, with dimmer turned down, and shot in a dark room. A close up of the light showed some interesting lines, enhanced by their own shadows. Reminds me of a rocket engine warming up to lift off. It is part of my Abstract  collection on RedBubble,  available in print, Throw Pillows, laptop and Phone Cases, and Tote Bags.

Seedling

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/4865396-seedling?c=88759-still-life-portrait-and-manipulations
The hands that hold us back are often times our own.

A combination of several photos of myself. The initial shot was me kneeling (it was in a low ceiling basement) below a bright work lamp. I hung a black sheet from the ceiling next to the light, with it touching the outer bowl of the lamp to illuminate the details of the folds in the sheet. I used a 10 second timer since this was a solo project. I then took six photos of my hands, and added them in using the hand in the original shot as a guide for size. For the hand grabbing my arm, I was grabbing a rolled up black towel to try and realistically capture the hand muscles tensing as if squeezing. I added 2 faint textures using photos of a wall I took. Gave it a bit of a sepia tone, color corrected and a slight crop, all done in Photoshop.

The image represented some struggles at the time, and creating it helped sort those struggles out. Like a seedling, fighting it's way up through the dirt. Seedling is part of my Still Life, Portrait and Manipulations collection on RedBubble, available in print, Throw Pillows, laptop and Phone Cases, and Tote Bags.

Trajectory

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/20885188-trajectory
One of my first attempts at decent smoke photography. I used sage for lack of incense. This produced less orderly and more chaotic billows of smoke, which required me to break from the tripod and become mobile. I slaved a studio light to my on camera flash, and positioned the studio light nearly 40 degrees behind and to the right of the smoke.

Riptide

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/20862146-riptide
Ice formation on a window on a subzero winter morning. A macro shot in RAW, some color correcting and enhancement done in Photoshop CS5. Amazing how each morning's frost takes on a different visual characteristic, depending on temperature and humidity I suppose.

12:05:31 AM

Water drop photo that caught two drops stacked over the impact zone. I used a black container for the water, and off camera flash which gave it an oil like appearance. I manually released the water drop, which has some limitations compared to an auto system, but still provided results. Maybe I will invest in a timed dropper in the future.

Come Back Soon

3 photos- One of the hill, the woman (my soon to be wife, Lauren) and the interesting clouds (which were not manipulated). Another shot of the bird from the same day and place. And one more int he form of a slight texture I shot of a cracked ceiling. Added a slight blur to the edges, and converted to Montone. All done in Photoshop CS5.

Classic

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/6744132-classic?c=28113-monochromatic
A photo of an old carriage on a snowy, foggy day. Actually it had snowed the day before, and the fog was due to a quick warm up in temperatures. The ice still is clinging on, but by day's end most of the snow had melted, taking this scene with it.

Dream Vultures (Don't Let Them Burst Your Bubble)

One of my digital projects that I experimented with for a few weeks. Digital art comprised of around 10 of my own photographs. RAW images all processed and combined in Photoshop CS5.
- Base photo shot at Norristown Farm Park, Norristown, PA-US. Base photo is an HDR of three exposures which comprise of the field, sky, cornfield and birdhouse.
- Bubbles were shot in studio.
- Turkey Vultures were 5 separate shots of one bird at Windlestrae Park, North Wales PA.
- Stuffed rabbit shot in studio (I tried to match the lighting of the sunset in the base photo with studio lighting).

It is part of my Still Life, Portraits and Manipulations collection on RedBubble, available in print, Throw Pillows, laptop and Phone Cases, and Tote Bags.
