Welcome, I first wish to hope everyone is having a great week!
I have allot to share this week. first growth in my own photographic ventures, second a shout out for a friends new phonebook. And lastly some quick observations on the Sony 6300 camera.
While I've always felt comfortable photographing wildlife, landscapes and classic aircraft. The one thing I have never felt comfortable with his photographing people. So one of my goals this last summer has been to take on that challenge. I tried this in a few different ways. One is the photographing friends of mine playing baseball at area Park. The other was what occurred this weekend. I had the opportunity to expand my photographic horizons, was more model type shoot. Teaming up with my good friend Gur on this endeavor we we had chatted about often in the last couple years. That of her in traditional dress which we would then photographed in various areas of the city.
Number One, a huge shout out to my friend all Gur, both for taking the time to do this with me and all that all she added to the shoot that day. And and also to her fiancé Chris for letting me borrow his wife to be for a couple hours. The day went amazing getting some wonderful shots of my friend which in turn helps me in developing my photographic skills. So my last thoughts in regards to this our relation to my title of my post. I know you all have subjects that we like to shoot. Never be afraid to try out something you you might surprise yourself! And also learn something in the process both, which of course is enriching. What will be the technical aspect of the shoot. Camera was made on the D750, with the Nikon AF-S 24 to 85 mm zoom. As it was just the two of us I did not use any fill flash or reflectors. You'll see some of the pictures below.
My second share today is for my photography friend Scott Engel who just published a new book on the iTunes store. Scott has published other book's, if you not had a chance to check out his work I highly suggest you take a few moments to do so. Link at: https://itun.es/us/eowOdb.l
Lastly, I'm nearing the end of my time at EAA Air Venture in Oshkosh Wisconsin. If your into planes or aviation in any way this is a one stop shop of all types of aircraft covering pretty much all the years of flight!

Themba, Long Winter Nap. At The Milwaukee County Zoo
Hi all, I thought this week I'd share a short video taken at the Milwaukee County Zoo. When I saw Themba, the Zoo male lion sleeping on his heated rock. My first thought where of the movie, The Witch, The Lion and The Wardrobe. I hope you enjoy. You can see the rest of my work at my sites. imagesbylemke.org

Hi all, Just returned from a fun weekend. How was it made fun you ask. Well I was able to combine two loves of mine. Fishing and photography. The trip was organized by my good friend Keith, and included a number of folks that we fished with last summer in Canada, as well as some new folks. We're planned on Ice Fishing on the Pettenwell Flowage near Friendship, Wi. Fishing while slow, was made fun by the great group of guys I was with.
The photography part came in before and After. I was able to take off early and stay another day for the trip. So going up I drove through Sauk City, Wi to see what Eagle action could be had. Did not see many at that time, so I decided to drive up some side road up to Pettenwell Flowage looking on any options along the way. I was very please to find a large amount of Eagles around Pettenwell which I was able to photograph on Friday afternoon and Sunday.
I will be posting more, but here's one for you to start with. Please note my Web site has changed www.imagesbylemke.org. Do you want to see how a picture with look in a room, now you can! Including your room paint options etc.
Hope you enjoy the Eagle image as much as I enjoyed getting it!
Till next time
I'm a photographer who loves animal photography. Trying to capture that perfect moment is a passion of mine.
