Betsy

The other day, I tossed my 50mm 1.2 lens on and had some fun with my girl. She never sits for too long so the razor thin depth of field makes getting a crisp shot of her more of a game for the both of us. I like playing…and sincerely believe that she does too! Recently, I’ve been making some changes and updates to my WhiskerDo site. I love animals, particularly pets, so back in 2011 I launched this site in hopes that I could surround myself with all sorts of critters and capture them for their humans to enjoy! With the mobile age that’s upon us, it was time to make the site more mobile friendly! You can reach me through that site if you have any questions or simply wish to have your furkid captured!

Black & White

In a world brimming over with color I often wonder what it is about black and white images that seem to stop time. I recently found…and I wish I could remember who said it…a quote that went something like this….”In a color portrait you see the person, in a black and white portrait you see the soul.” Palpable, isn’t it?

Well…I’ve noticed, lately, that I seem to leave many of my images in color…I haven’t been converting many. I guess living in Minnesota with so many colorless months I’ve simply gravitated towards colored images. They’re happy. Color images smile.

So I asked myself…do you only want to capture time? OR, would you like to make an impact with those very same images and stop time? Hmmmm. I think it’s high time I select the latter.  Now, I’m not saying that I’m leaping off the color wagon but perhaps I’ll dabble with sitting on the running board and drag my boots a bit. Here are some recent captures of mine…thanks for checking in…
