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.

Dave, this is simply beautiful. Is it okay to use your photos for my desktop? I'll certainly understand if you say no.

That is beautiful Dave. Really nice job. I've played with water drop photography and know how hard it is and you've done an awesome job here.

Again Love it. Love it. I have an idea of how it works I think.


Fantastic! Very beautiful, and the first one too :)


I have no words left for you..........
I have already said it all, but you never stop to amaze me♥


The droplet itself looks incredible but with red and blue it is almost difficult to believe.

An unusual sight caught in mid-air it seems. Lovely reflections in that orb!


two thumbs up!

Oh. My. God!

Great colors, great light, incredible timing.

If I ever get around to doing 'studio' work I want you to be my teacher. Most of my pics are outside, natural light which is okay because that's generally where my favorite subjects are.

But the things you do here with the water, and with the smoke, I find them most impressive. I haven't got the bucks to invest in the props for now, but someday maybe.

Thanks for stopping by and explaining that btw, I've been sick and just now getting back.


classical picture where you did it very well :)


"ps, yes absolutely, you can use it..."

Many thanks, kind sir. I just love it.


Oh, wow! This is mind blowingly fabulous! Wow!


Very cool shot, Dave! Love the colors!

Greyscale Territory

O how pretty and romantic! The colours seem to glow with dark mystery!


This is my first visit to your blow and your have blown me out of the ballpark. Both photographs are fabulous...they really do resemble marbles to me. How in the world did you do it????
