    Affordable simple trivial tools like Instagram or Photoshop clones adopted by the masses lead to a massive sea of boring "unconventional wannabe photography". Just because your instagram picture looks like an LSD trip does not mean you are the new Warhol.

    I am thankful that there are still photographers who stick to their guns and whose work wins me with simplicity, ideas, emotions and technical brilliance rather than gimmicks and popular effects.

    This is one I got last night walking by the lake, snapped these two ducks just as they took off. Thought it was a cool picture.

    i agree there is a mass amount of boring photos out there, but photoshop is essential to photography these days. Im not talking about completely recreating photos, im talking simple adjustments just like the good ole film days did in the dark room. The difference is that now we have more opportunities and better gear (programs) to do it with.

    Sometimes I'll work the hell out of a photo to get it how I invisioned it, other times its simply one minor adjustment that some people wouldnt even notice.

    Here is a pic I took a couple of days ago on the way to work of a chickenhawk - here in Missouri every 3 - 5 telephone poles you can see them perched on there looking for lunch.

    Lawson R - here's one for you. From this past winter in Morro Bay, CA. This guy was standing on the sandy cliffs at the beach, we were only 15' from him. We shot him from both sides, he let us move around, and we left first! He was content to just model for us!

    Sitting in the shade at this remote natural lake when these four elk come trotting in. They played and splashed til a breeze swirled through.
