Welcome, Pat!

Glad you found us. I enjoyed visiting your site and seeing the night "light painting". It's impressive!

Best to post several select pictures at a time so we can comment on them. An introduction would be great, as most of us have had little to no experience in light-painting. Certainly, using red and green as you do is a powerful technique for transforming the ordinary composition into something fresh and conceived in a new manner.

Hi,
I finally was able to log back in........ The process involves putting theatrical gels in front of flashlights, and take a shutter controlled picture.......15 seconds and ten second timed delay to go inside the structure............ I will try to add some picture here but believe I cannot....... to get a good review Mouse Click all the pictures to really get fine detail........ Pat

THE PAST COMES BACK TO LIFE ON MY SITE........

Your login issue likely is because our "software" splits your name to First and Surname. Once you get used to that it will work every time!

Folk love to check through links to dig deeper but we need the beauty of the pictures here to really make the thread work and attract eyeballs! That's how it works.

With actual Pictures posted here you will get more interest and more click-through a to our website.

Anyway, we live by the pictures posted here!

Asher

Pat,

It's simple. Get the URL of you image and place it between [IMG]and{\Img}

Just use only square brackets!

You seem to be a bit obsessed with Troy, Paul.
I hope this is a healthy relationship.

Perhaps it might be of value to you and us if you professed your own methods, intentions and ideals.
That way we can hone a clearer image of Paul Dyer.

I'm not that drawn to Troy's photos, nor yours at the moment, but I'm open to discussion from you as to your intent beyond what you have gleaned from your beloved Troy.

Perhaps it's possible you take photographs in a different style. Family shots, a bit of travel or trivia, some soft porn, a newer building lit differently.
I'd be happy to see what you can do when not under the charismatic influence of the lesser known Troy

Old ads that were never super popular or just faded due to a lack of popularity are fun to browse.........

Well, I recognize a Westinghouse Laundromat laundry washer (on the left).

Not sure what make the top-load laundry washer on the right is.

Not sure about the cabinet to the right of the door - I have to ponder on that some more.

And of course I recognize the broken sheetrock.

Best regards,

Doug
