About Me

My photo
Long Beach, California, United States
Welcome to my blog. Looking through my posts you will find that I love and have a passion for photography and although my expertise so to speak is in Sports Action, I have been getting into wildlife and senior portraits. No matter what I'm shooting I want to bring my client the best possible shot I can and give them / you a photograph that you will cherish for a lifetime. If your looking for someone to capture your child in action, to show the intensity and emotion in which your child plays, look no further. Just drop me a line (e-mail) at homerkenpo@aol.com. I cover most areas in Southern Califoria.

Various Visits to the Wetlands

This will be a long one consisting of various shots from my recent visits to the wetlands, and yes I did say recent visits (plural).  I've been on vacation and haven't had much in sports to shoot so I've been hitting the wetlands very frequently.
Although I've been enjoying greatly my time in the wetlands I am so ready for some football, which will start just this next month.  So I hope all of you who visit my blog are ready for some football as well.
To start this entry I'll start with a shot of my dad, who I've gotten to come out with me on a couple occasions.  Ya know when they hit a certain age you just lose control :).
After going through these shots prior to uploading them here I was wondering what is my style if one was to ask.  I'm not sure how I would answer that because I don't think I really have a style.  I do so many different things to my sports, portraits, wildlife, and landscapes that I can't really say I have a style.  Maybe you can, and if so, what would you call my style.
When I head to shoot I have nothing specific in mind, especially when it comes to wildlife.  I know what I'd like to see, but I have no control over that, so I like to say I'll go and see what the wetlands has to offer me.  I think I use that same method with almost all I shoot.  I know what I would like to achieve, but that's not always what happens when I get where I want to go.  So I keep an open mind and my camera ready.
Now that is only part of it, because once I get home, well that's when the magic starts.  I have a standard editing process I use, but once I start to do my thing I will often think it has potential to go in another direction.  And that's my magic.
Now that we got that one out of the way lets start with what the wetlands presented to me during the last few trips.



In closing I want to leave you with a few sunset shots, ok their not sunsets, but they have that evening glow through the wildflowers.  Love shots like this.
