A Photo a Day

Posted by Mike Voss on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, In : events 
Back in August I got the bright idea to post "an interesting" photo everyday for a year to my facebook page. Now I know it's not an original idea, but I thought it would be fun. Well I was wrong. It's not fun. It's been a huge challenge, and I admit there have been days when I was really straining to find a photograph to upload but today is the 101st day and this is the 101st photograph. You can see more by searching Mike Voss on facebook. My feed is public so you can hang around if you like.

Ice cream

For some reason this photo makes me want ice cream. Maybe it's just ice cream, or maybe it's having nothing more to worry about than when the next spoonful will arrive. Nice hat too!

Blue Moon

Posted by Mike Voss on Thursday, August 22, 2013, In : events 


One lunar cycle) is 29.53 days. There are about 365.25 days in a solar
year. Therefore, about 12.37 cycles (365.25 days divided by 29.53 days)
occur in a solar year. In the Gregorian calendar, there are 12 months
(derived from the word moon) in a year, and normally there is one full
moon each month. Each calendar year contains roughly 11 days more than the
number of days in 12 lunar cycles. The extra days accumulate, so every two
or three years there is an extra full moon. The extra moon necessaril...

Chicago Color Run

Posted by Mike Voss on Monday, July 8, 2013, In : events 

This image was shot at the Color Run in Chicago as participants threw colored corn starch over their heads. I worked my way around them until they were backlit and I was upwind. Even so I used a vacuum cleaner to remove all the fine dust particles from two camera bodies and lenses. It was shot at ISO 200 with a 70-200mm zoom lens

We were searching for eagles on the banks of Oil Creek near Titusville, PA when we saw this bird at about the same time it saw us. While we were trying to decide if this was a juvenile eagle it was deciding we were too big for lunch.

Shooting for a magazine

Posted by Mike Voss on Wednesday, July 4, 2012, In : events 
Recently I shot a story for a consumer magazine. It's not the first time, and I hope it won't
be the last, because the pay is pretty good. Non-photographer friends think this, "is cool".
They are impressed, and they think this must be fun. Photographers, on the other hand
ask with some trepidation, "How did that go?". Those who have done this sort of shoot
before know how stressful these can be.

There's a sort of stage fright involved. Thinking that millions of readers will see
your images with...
