My shot of the weekend from Splitfest 2012. I was totally covered in snow after the rider passed me but it was totally worth it for a shot like this. Just an amazing weekend hiking in the Mt Baker backcountry!

I’m helping a friend out with his modeling headshots. This was taken with a rented Zeiss 85mm f1.4. What an amazing lens!

I shot this at the zoo a couple of months ago. The keepers were in the process of bathing an elephant and there were no good points of view to get a picture. But as I started looking more closly at the scene in front of me, I started to notice interesting abstract images in the window.

This was shot at Lake Washington today during lunch. I don’t know these people at all, I was just the creepy guy sitting at a table with a camera and a long lens.

He’s not actually jumping into the water, he’s actually just jumping onto some rocks. It’s just the way I cropped the frame that makes it look like he’s about to hit the water. Cameras lie, could be a photo series……

A row of pine trees at Steven’s Pass, WA. This was taken after a splitboard tour at the Yodelin trailhead.

I’m starting to build a library of images on SmugMug to sell as prints and this is my latest addition.

I’m trying to put things up there that I would like to have hanging on my wall. Couldn’t you see this in a large white matt framed in a light oak frame? Gorgeous, I tell you, gorgeous!A row of pine trees at Steven’s Pass, WA. This was taken after a splitboard tour at the Yodelin trailhead.

I was going really far back in the way-back machine tonight and found this oldie but goodie. This was shot the day after my 49th birthday, wow! I’m calling it the “Spirit of Flight” because I discovered a photo contest by that same that I’ll be entering this in. I’m sure they are looking for something more along the line of pretty planes but I really like this image. The slight blue tone and high contrast give it a 60’s feeling but still remains contemporary. It actually has a timeless quality that I’m always in search of.

I shot this with my first DSLR but before I was really serios about my photography. I was really more interested in seeing the planes at this flyby but I was aware of the scene around me. So either I’ve always had a good sense of composition or I got really lucky because the compo rocks in this photo.

Arg!……After I checked the EXIF I discovered I shot this in auto, so I go lucky, so what 🙂

This is an over-the-top processed image in Lightroom 4 but I love it. I saw this Jeep parked in a lot near work a couple of months ago and took a single shot of it for future reference. I developed it with a preset I’ve been working on called Medium Cool in Lightroom 4. I’ve actually developed an entire photo book using this preset called “Rain Shadows” which is why I haven’t been posting many pictures lately, busy on the book. I’ve come to a point where I really want the processing to show thru and I think this image has that feeling of being over-processed but still is accepted as real by the viewer.

Lake Effect Snow by Terry Schmidbauer

I took this photo such a long time ago that I almost forgot about it. When I took this I was thinking about the Gursky photo which is now the most expensive photo ever purchased. I was shooting and thinking only about composition in this shot. I really like the simplicity and mood. After shooting this and processing it I really feel I can understand more about Gursky’s work. It’s really hard to come to terms with shooting something so simplistic.
