Spent Sunday morning walking the streets of Philadelphia admiring the historical architecture and all the sites.  I never tire when walking with camera in hand.

Generative AI and the hype surrounding it reminds me of the dot com boom a few decades ago. It is impressive technology with far-reaching implications. But for now, let’s have fun with what it can do for us. With a few simple prompts you can get impressive results. Then a quick copy into Photoshop for adjustments and personal touches and… voilà!

It’s A Bucs Life!

I had the privilege of photographing the contents of the historic Betsy Ross House in Olde City, Philadelphia, PA.  What an amazing piece of the American history.  Tight quarters and difficult lighting made for the opportunity to stretch the capabilities of the wide angle prime and off-camera speedlights.

1. (foh-toh-waw-king) verb Therapeutic trek observing the beauty among the mundane for the art of producing images

Always an event walking the streets of Philadelphia to capture the beauty among the mundane.  This time in the Fishtown section of North Philly.  In early December you begin to see the many expressions of holiday decorations.

How I saw Philadelphia’s South Street this morning.  Architecture.  People.  Art.  Things.  It is not what you see, but how you see it.  

Note to fellow photogs:  Be careful when using Photoshop’s new Generative AI Fill…  It can become a dangerous tool if not used wisely.

Always fun to attend a Phillies game and The Bank.  While Bucs football is my sports passion, Phillies baseball holds a spot in my heart as well.  The Fightin’s didn’t put up a fight this day, but the drone and fireworks show afterwards did not disappoint!  Images taken from Section 320 Row 4.  (24mm – AV priority – -3 Exposure Comp – Handheld)
