    Just use it on my MySpace page I guess. I had my lights set up to do another shoot for a client and I figured I would take some of me and my guitar while my stuff was up. Why do you ask?

    I dont drive 20,000 miles a year to see thunderstorms because I think they are so so. :)

    See my site for weather pics including tornados and lightning...

    This is off topic too, but I never looked at your website until now. Those storm and weather pics are just absolutely un-f'in-believable! Have you sold any prints of those? What is your secret, just long exposures and a really sharp lens?

    Btw, I think the guitar collage is great, although I think the web size pic could be a little sharper. Nice job though. :)

    my degree is in meteorology so i get really excited to see weather photography!!!!!!!

    that picture is absolutely amazing! the supercell that has the tornado is so low topped! and is that a second cell behind it developing? the tilt on it is crazy intense.

    did you photoshop those storms together or was that taken in real time? the rest of the pictures are amazing too, but this one really captures me!

    Actually the main storm tower goes up to the anvil. Thats just new growth / back building closest to the camera. The only photoshopping is to adjust contrast and such. I was pretty excited when I got that. I knew it was something special.

    Pretty much. I have a rough formula for lightning photography. I have sold some stuff here and there but just enough to help pay for the gas that it takes to travel the country looking for storms like that.

    What do you mean the web sized pic? Maybe its not sharp cause I added some Gaussian blur to myself. Plus I blurred the outside of me after I cut and pasted it.
