SOOC (Straight Out Of the Camera)


A Flamingo

Flamingo from the Nashville Zoo

Straight from the camera.  Unaltered.  Pure photography?  Well there is software in the camera that adjusts color so how pure are we talking?  We see the photographs on a computer before printing, there is all kinds of color adjustments, color look up tables, differences in screens….  Hard to see the purity here.




Painted Peach


Peaches from Forgie’s Fruit Farm near Lewisbug, TN.


There is something about a peach orchard.  I lived near some large ones in the San Joaquin valley. I was 14 and living on my grandparents’ vineyard.  When the peaches ripened you could smell them for nearly a month baking in the dessert of the valley.
