David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

    +April L Hill Thanks. You use whatever lighting you can get. The full moon at night is bright (full sunlight) and everything else is dark. I had her stand in front of a deck railing light and hoped for the best for the longest exposure I could get away with handheld. I didn't know that the magician would be standing behind her…

    +David Mathre Wow! I'm even more impressed. I assumed you used a speedlite for the front lighting.
