Fantasy

It was raining hard outside so I decided to sit down with photoshop and see what I can accomplish with some of my older images. The idea I had was to create artwork in the fantasy genre. After the dust settled this was my first attempt and I really like it. I’m currently working with a cosplay model so more artwork is on the horizon.

Serena Williams is in town

Its that time of year professional tennis is back in Cincinnati (for the next week at least) and I was lucky enough to get invited back as a photographer for the Western Southern tournament. I took this shot last night of Serena Williams in her easy (for her at least) win over Daria Gavrilova. Serena has to be the most successful pro athlete of all time.

I'm still here.

My latest upload to my print for sale site, http://ed-taylor.pixels.com/

Its a digital charcoal drawing of Jomo.  A male silverback gorilla living at the Cincinnati Zoo.

Pet Portraits

I was able to do some pet portraits last week and learned that some pets pose better than some humans.  Nice job Sam and Chloe.

The Banks

The Banks here in Cincinnati runs between the entertainment district and Ohio River.  Its become the place to visit here in Cincinnati.  I found out in late May that, yes, you are able to get married on The Banks.  I shot this for Maxim Photo Studio.

Nicole & Tony's Wedding Day

It was as if mother nature knew Nicole and Tony were getting married and stopped raining during the important parts of the day.  Lake Lyndsay was the perfect venue for the happy couple.

Gotham Soccer

To keep myself busy during the weekdays I picked up a small sports job shooting for Gotham Soccer.   Their spring league started last Sunday and I was asked to cover the opening.

Lost in Technology

I am a big fan of technology and follow advancements being made some of the tech giants.  However, sometimes I think technology is taking us in the wrong direction.  While visiting my son in Florida my wife and I decided to soak up the warmth of the beach.  Back home it was snowing and ice covered the streets.  Yet, in southern Florida it was warm and beautiful.  While my wife was taking in some sun (even on overcast days the sun peaks through on a beach), I was people watching and noticed almost everyone was on their cellphones. Gone are the footballs, Frisbees and frolicking in the sand of yesteryear.  And before you ask, yes, I took the picture with a cellphone.

Merry Christmas

I'd like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas season and happy New Year.  I'm looking forward to the 2018 photography year.

Where did the summer go?

I can't believe it is almost Christmas.  I stayed pretty busy for 2017 and looking to repeat in 2018.  I hope everyone has a great and family time Christmas. 

Logan

Maybe its just me, but I've found it is harder to capture good images of a guy than a girl.  Logan was different.  He never stopped smiling and was easy to pose.  Logan made is senior portrait session very easy.

Ben & Shelby's Engagement

A cute couple, a beautiful farm and a gorgeous fall day made my job as a photographer a lot easier.  This past Sunday, I was able to capture a few images of Ben & Shelby while walking around a local Indiana farm.

Walnut Hills High School Reunion

40 years ago Walnut Hills graduated the class of 1977.  On Saturday they met again for some celebration and I was lucky enough to be asked to come by and take a few pictures.  Reunion coordinators paid for the images to be available to the attendees.  <your pictures>.  To download an image just click on the image and under that image is a small down arrow.   The images will remain up for approximately 60 days. 

Thank you for letting me be part of your festivities.
