Can an old man come out to play?


Back in 03 I had my first hard drive failure, and 5 years of work lost
What a learning experience that was. Well long story short, I was
able to recover some of my fav. in an odd way. Back in the
day I printed a lot, mostly 8x10. Now that I shoot mostly film I do more scanning.
Well you can see where this is going. Oh what a happy day. So over next couple of days
or so I will be posting some shots.
Some will be favorites ,others just showing some of early begins in to my macro adventure. Camera used was my D30( 3.4 MP) 70 -200 and my 100-300 with the 500D diopter. I will post more in this thread , so check back. I know they are really nothing special, just some of my better work in the early years. My macro adventure started for me in 2003, as far as really trying to improve on the past images that at that time had to be posted in the nature wildlife forum. (No macro forum at that time )

Here are more from the lost files. I have long been a proponent of getting it RIGHT in camera, to where you have little or no PS required ; other than little sharping, and or contrast. If all is right you don't need all the extra software out there like, ( noise software for example). you don't even have to crop an image and loose all that info. It also make you a better photographer. All these things I have been preaching here for going on 10 years. We have many good photographer come through the macro forum since it's inception back in 03 . Every few years we get another new group of people coming here to learn from the many here that truly know what they are doing . Many ,like myself are not as active as we have been in the past, with ever changing life challenges. That being said, we always have some that take up the slack when needed and become the new leaders of the pack so to speak.

Enjoy, From my cattail and reed series

Back in the early days of 03 before we had the macro forum we all ( maybe ten or so of us at the most ) had to post our shots in the nature wildlife forum . As my learning of the macro arts grew over time, there was one individual that would just wear me out over my poor use of or lack of knowledge of the use of flash . Thanks John for the constant nipping at my heals. Others are Steve (Smug) and Gary S. (If he see this he will know who he is ) other very fine macro and wildlife photographer. And lastly there is Mr Trey. All four Long and lifetime friends made right here at Fred's. All good teachers, these are just a few that pass by now and again . Whats my point in all of this Like my parent use to say ( figure out who the good teacher are and listen to them) .


Here are a few more that went with my cattail or reeds series

Good to see your work back on the boards Tom. Been too long since you've posted. As always and as these were originally - excellent work.

Here are a couple more dragon fly shots . Tell me that dragon fly in the second shot was not made to rest on Willow Trees. Perfect camo.

Here I was thinkin' Texas had swallowed you two fellas' up. Glad to see that's not the case!

Tom, these scans turned out really great! I remember when you lost all those many wonderful images, what a heart break that was. Glad you were able to recover some of them.

Love the darners, Tom. Don't often see them perched unless it's early or late. Nice.
