Loving Expectations
Using Dusk and Dawn I wanted to capture that very special time in a couple's life. Created in Daz Studio and rendered with iray.
I created this in Daz studio using iRay to render. The actors in this are Dawn and the Hivewire horse, both available over at Hivewire 3d.
I was happy with how this turned out so wanted to share it with you.
Spirits of the Dance

In this piece you will see an annual Halloween bash for all the ghostly beings. This year they actually were able to get "live" undead music. Belinda the banshee is belting out her best accompanied by Vitorio the vampire on his haunting violin.  Elmira, the witch and new to the ghostly community is playing the wallflower while awaiting her strapping date, Sven, who you can see just coming through the door.  This year even some phantom ghosts decided to join in the dance.

Using Daz Studio 4.9 pro, this took about 2 days total to create.  Of that 2 days, 8 hours was spent in rendering with 3dlight.  Those ghosts can sure make for long renders.

This was my 3d entry for Renderosity's Halloween contest, I always the challenge of ghosts in 3d. Will be glad when someone comes up with a convincing ghost shader for iray, everything I have seen so far has looked more like xrays.  Out of 120 entries this placed 4th.

Grave Confusion

While wandering through the local cemetary and shooting a few photos, I stumbled upon what appeared to be what could only be a confused spirit. As I watched through my camera's viewfinder, it looked as if this ghostly apparition couldn't find the grave he came from. He went from one grave to another looking at each gravestone closely.  I was able to track his movements with this photo.

This photo was taken with a Nikon d90

15 sec at f/13, focal length 66 mm, iso 200, no flash.It was taken at 8 pm

My husband played the ghost, he is such an accommodating subject. I was inspired by the adventure of "ghost hunting" with my camera to see what I could accomplish with just one exposure. Only postwork was adding a filter and resizing in Photoshop.

This was an entry for the Halloween Contest over at Renderosity Photography section. Although it didn't place, I wanted to share it with you

Dreams Of Travel
Even though this was shot in the afternoon, I was happy with how this turned out. The sun and shadows adds a great bit of character to this photo.  Another photo of my gorgeous.......

I Am Still Alive

Journal Entry: Sun Jun 26, 2016, 11:27 AM
Hello everyone,
I can't believe that it has been so long since my last journal. Well, I guess my life isn't all that exciting so you didn't miss much but I am sorry that I didn't get a few features done for all of your wonderful artwork.  My focus has been on 3d artwork in both Daz Studio and Poser 11 pro, I haven't been out on a photo safari in quite some time.  My model has been otherwise occupied with her life ( really need to get more models) so I miss taking portraits and such.  
The heat and humidity here in Kansas is horrendous right now so I don't get out much.  I have a garden planted and as you have seen in the few photos that I have posted, my flowers are thriving. Having a husband that loves to work in the yard (he must or we wouldn't have 3 pieces of property and he tends to the yards of 2 other people) really helps when I can't get out to pull weeds an such.  Got tomatoes setting on and some zucchini that will make some wonderful things (fried zucchini, Yum and some of my famous zucchini bread) once they get large enough.  Also have some different types of peppers to use in salsa.  Out by my arbor, I have some luffa gourds planted, will be working on custom sponges with them if I get a good crop.  
Well, just about run out of room so have to say goodbye for now, will try to get back to doing features in my next journal entry.
