I am a 42-year old husband and father. I was an avid computer gamer and DOF, F-stops and the like were foreign to me until my wife introduced me to photography.

I began shooting during the latter part of March 2010 and quickly became addicted to it. I started this blog to share my journey and to learn along the way. Special thanks to my wife Eng who encouraged me and to all my friends in Blogosphere who shared their knowledge and taught me to further this craft.

Nice truck :) And very cool effect!

That is one serious looking truck!!


Too cool. When are you going to open a photography school?

Thanks for the idea on burning. I tried some darkening of clouds on my Kathy Goes a Ramblin site. Will try a black and white tomorrow perhaps.

I really like when you do before and after photos, so neat to see what you did to make such magnificant images.


Oh wow, needless to say, I am fascinated, Dave! Brilliant effect! Amazing! :)


It's amazing! Two completely different moods...

Sooo Cool - love the red color !


Both the images are cool!


I love when you do this

the sense of motion is so fantastic


I love seeing these before-after shots. And you're truly a photoshop genius Dave! :)


You certainly succeeded in creating the speeding truck illusion. Wow!


Killer work!


dear Dave, both versions are simply great! would like to drive such a nice pickup! did you make two independant shots or did you prepare just one? greetings from kri


Although I love that effect, and I've just registered for a Photoshop course to learn how to do cool stuff like that, somehow it makes me doubt every photo I see now ;-)


I love that one Dave. Just plain COOL!


Very very cool effect! How do you do this?


WOW, what a great after photo,love it and love the truck :)


That is GENIUS....... Great job! Love the edit!
