… I was going through several folders tonight, reviewing, judging and deleting photos as I went and then I came on a folder of “Innovator Spuria Iris” that we have growing in our yard thanks to friends, Allan and Marge, who planted them for Corky during the summer of 2013. They have bloomed brilliantly many years and I have a feeling that this will be a good year for them … plans are to feed them this year too. The website for the Spuria Iris is: https://spuriairissociety.org/
A very long time ago I did charcoal drawings and it was easy to depart from reality and create something new and exciting … today I have fun using the tools available to me in Photoshop to take the same liberties with my photos … photography is an art not just of a straight photograph, but a creation through the lens, eye and mind of the artist … the freedom is unlimited and the results can be amazing … reality can be over rated sometimes.
The snow on the ground is beautiful and it is cold … for here. Plans to shoot some snow scenes tomorrow and share one of them tomorrow night.
Have a beautiful day and keep your mind open for beauty and be willing to visualize it and play with the image in your mind. Keep breathing, keep smiling … life is great … we get to choose how we perceive it.

In addition to sales of photographs already taken Ted does special shoots for patrons on request and also does air-to-air photography for those who want photographs of their airplanes in flight. All special photographic sessions are billed on an hourly basis.
Ted also does one-on-one workshops for those interested in learning the techniques he uses. By special arrangement Ted will do one-on-one aerial photography workshops which will include actual photo sessions in the air.
