How To Speak Photo-geeze

your word for today is...

ABERRATION (ab-er-ay-shun)

(1) Something that prevents light from being brought into sharp focus, dis-enabling the formation of a clear image.

(2) Lens flaw - the inability of a lens to reproduce an accurate, focused, sharp image. Aberration in simple lenses is sub-categorized into seven types:

  • Astigmatism - lines in some directions are focused less sharply than lines in other directions,
  • Chromatic aberration or Axial chromatic aberration - different wavelengths of light coming into focus in front of and behind the film plane, resulting in points of light exhibiting a rainbow-like halo and reduction in sharpness,
  • Coma - the image of a point source of light cannot be brought into focus, but has instead a comet shape,
  • Curvilinear distortion - distortion consisting of curved lines,
  • Field curvature - the image is incorrectly curved,
  • Lateral chromatic aberration also known as Transverse chromatic aberration - variation in the magnification at the sides of a lens (this aberration type used to be termed “lateral color”),
  • Spherical aberration - variation in focal length of a lens from center to edge due to its spherical shape - generally all parts of the image, including its center

    Past Photography...

    All of these older photograph's were taken with my little 4.0 megapixel Nikon pocket sized digital camera.

    All you need to know about me, as a photographer, is this; I am in love with this art. It is my passion. With a unique approach to my composition, I make every effort to capture moments that are worth a thousand words, yet leave you speechless.

    I hope you will take time and enjoy a sample of some recent work.

    Beauty in Simplicity...

    A small drop of rain or morning dew accumulated on a leaf or a blade of grass can be so captivating.

    I love capturing all that nature affords.

    Oldies, but still awesome...

    It was fun to come across some of my earlier studio work and thought I would share some of it with you. I had a great time working with all of the families. Hope you enjoy...
