Florida Photography – Lobster Diving Video

As a Florida photographer I could not resist posting some vintage footage of some lobster diving trips. I shot these clips with the old Sony DCR TRV20 with a Dolphin Pro housing as my Photography Equipment. We always managed to get our limit of lobster on these dives. Maybe it was because I always paid my dues lugging all of the camera gear in and out of the water on every dive. While I typically do not shoot any video footage for my clients now I will shoot some short clips with my Canon 5D Mark II. I do animate the still photography pictures and put them to music for my clients and they seem to really enjoy the share the picture videos. More and more of my time is going towards promoting dog photography and horse photography events.   But for now enjoy some diving trip on the “Afternoon Delight” with “The Native Floridian” and don’t forget to bring along your camera so you too can “Preserve Your Adventure”.  Or you can bring me along, the ultimate Florida Photographer.

Florida Photography in Cancun – Who Would Know?

Florida Photography in CancunAs a Florida Photographer sometimes I actually get to leave Florida.  This time I took a trip to Cancun, Mexico and got married!  So while I was there getting married to the love of my life I managed to take some pictures. There was a beautiful old lighthouse complete with a shipwrecked little boat on this jagged rock filled peninsula.  This made for some beautiful pictures.  It took several trips to the lighthouse to get the shot I was looking for. I wanted to show a sense of remote and ruggedness of this rocky terrain.  I imagined what it was like before all of the commercialization and tourism came to Cancun. Florida Photography in Cancun Wood Boat

The old boat had been there for years and really started to settle into the sand.  It made for a great foreground object adding some depth to the picture.  The sunrise, well it speaks for itself.  It’s not really spectacular but I never get tired of a beautiful sunrise picture.  I thing the most enjoyable part of the picture was taking it. I packed all of my gear, slung it over my back and headed out.  It was a quiet cool walk along the beach from the hotel to the lighthouse point.  I had to duck under docks, climb over rocks, walk through water and sometimes sneaked through the vacant tiki hut bars.  When I arrived at the rocky point the wind was in my face and the sun was just poking its head up from the horizon.  As I unpacked my camera gear I realized I had made an almost fatal mistake.  My camera equipment and most importantly my lens fogged up instantly.   With the extreme humidity and the sub zero temperature of the hotel room, I think our thermostat was broken, my dry lens cloth did not stand a chance.  So after the longest few minutes of hugging my camera very closely in an attempt to warm it up enough so the condensation would stop, I was finally able to start capturing some images.  The sunrise was one of those pictures that reminded me of Florida Photography.

Once again, if you put the pictures to music and animate them and something magical happens.

Dog Photography Animoto Style

Dog Photography is one of my favorite types of Florida Photography to take.  You never quite know what your four-legged subject is going to do.  So get the camera setting right, the correct lighting and shoot, shoot, shoot.  I am a little biased about dog photography because I have a dog of my own.  Nothing against cat owners but dogs are just more photogenic.  I’m sure that can be argued and I will take a little flack from some of the cat lovers out there.  Back to my dog.  His name is Taz and he is a 6 year old Pudelpointer.  A Poodle What!?  Yes, a Pudelpointer.  This is a German Versatile Hunting dog breed that has been around for over 100 years.  He is very easy to photograph as long as he is distracted.  However if you point the camera at him he gets camera shy and looks away.

With all of these pictures of dogs that I have taken over the years, I found a great way to show them off.  Animoto, the quick and easy way to put together a professional video bringing your still images to live.  Enjoy some of my dog photography.

Animated Horse Photography – Reining Fun

This was a fun little trip over to Mims for the North Brevard Horseman’s Club’s reining event, where I engaged in some Horse Photography. With all of the horse photography that I take you have to find different ways of displaying the pictures. I was introduced to Animoto about 6 months ago. What an awesome web based program where you can put your pictures to music for free! However the free version is just a short clip and only a few pictures but for $30 a year you can make much longer videos. They have other upgrade options that get even better for the professional. That reminds me, I will have to post my high resolution version of my wedding that my wife and I put together. Squirrel. (If you have seen the movie UP, then you will know what that means.)

Animoto recently introduced video clips into their software. Before you could only upload pictures and now you can share both still pictures and video clips in their program! So this was my first attempt at putting both still pics and video clips together and I think it came out quite well. A little video add a little twist and really livens up the slide show. Plus the music, the music is great and there is a wide selection.

So sit back, kick your spurs off and enjoy a little horse photography called Reining Fun.

Horse Photography at the Najorka Performance Horses

Horse Photography Colorful BallYou never really know what king of horse photography you are in for when you head to the Najorka Performance Horses where they have riding, training, reining, and ranch horse versatility.  My wife leases a horse from Ken so I am always being asked to got to the barn.  I think everybody knows I usually bring my camera and sometimes I even get some good pictures.  Today was no exception.   The sun was finally getting low in the west and the golden light was fast approaching.  To make matters even better the horses were playing ball today with a very colorful sphere to say the least!  I stayed outside of the training area and used my 100-400 lens at first.  The pictures were ok but as a friend of mine always said, “If your pictures are good enough, you are not close enough.”  So I opted for my 24-70mm 2.8 and got in close.

Roseate Spoonbill – Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

Florida Photography Roseate SpoonbillIt was a beautiful fall morning with the temperature a cool 59 degrees and the wind blowing in from the southeast at about ten miles per hour.  There was some blue sky peaking through and the clouds were a fluffy white on top with a gray underside.  The perfect cold front weather for shooting ducks or shooting Florida Photography style for that matter.

I had hunted ducks in this location for the last two years.  You have to enter a lottery to have a limited chance to be drawn for a special permit.  If lucky enough to be drawn,  you and up to three guest are allowed to hunt one Saturday and Sunday morning only.    I believe there are more species of duck found on the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge than in any other location in Florida.  In the past I have seen Hooded Merganser, Lesser Scaup, Coot, American Wigeon, Northern Shoveler, Blue-Wing Teal, Green-Wing Teal, Northern Pintail, Gadwall, and Florida Mottled Duck here.  Other ducks, that I have heard sitings of, but have not seen them at this location myself, are the Canvas Back, Wood Duck, Mallard, American Black Duck, and Ring-necked duck.  Florida Photography - Wood Stork

Over the last couple of years with extremes in the weather, including record amounts of rainfall or even the opposite, some of the man made dikes and levy’s have been unable to unnaturally adjust the water conditions to the ducks liking.  Therefore the ducks have opted to find some other place to stay for the winter.  This year was no exception.
Florida Photography - Annual Precipitation
We were not hit with a hurricane or a heavy tropical storm this year.  So too much water flooding the impoundment and upsetting the vegetation growth should not have been an issue.  Year to Date Rainfall:  Florida Department of Aggriculture and Consumer Services – Division of Forestry There are many theories, including the construction work on the new bridge, as to what is affecting the population of the ducks on the refuge.  There may not have been enough cold weather yet to drive the ducks further south.  We may never know what really affects these environmentally sensitive creatures.

I scouted this area for ducks for the first time this year about a week ago.  I was truly disappointed.  With my trusty binoculars and camera, I circled the area by driving on the levy searching for ducks.  I only saw a few Coots, a couple of Hooded Merganser, and four Blue-wing Teal.  This was not what I was hoping for.  Last year I saw hundreds of Coots feeding in this area with many other species of ducks mixed in.  What happened to all of the ducks that were constantly in the air and on the water including the flocks of Pintails that were whistling as they circled the open water?

A cold front was going to be moving through later on in the week but I had not seen enough ducks to inspire me to get up at 3 A.M.  Even though it is only a short drive of 35 minutes to Titusville, you have to wait in the line until 4 am when all of the hunters are released into the refuge.  I would have loved to have bagged a duck or two for my bird dog, but I decided to sleep in getting up about 7am.

I grabbed my camera, the bird dog, my jacket and headed out the door to see how the hunters did this morning and speak with the biologist.  Florida Photography - Roseate SpoonbillAs I circled the area of the refuge that usually is home to lots of ducks, especially after a cold front, I noticed that there were not any hunters nor ducks in this location.   As I was finishing up my drive along the levy loop, I took a few pictures of some Wood Storks, White Ibis and then what to my wondering eyes should appear….a Roseate Spoonbill!

At first I only saw the single and was really happy to see that bird.  But then, in the corner, I hit the mother load!  It was a flock of Roseate Spoonbills and White Ibis feeding!  I slipped out of the truck and put the Florida Cracker sneak on them.  I was able to get within 10 yards, keeping the mangroves between us so as not to alarm the birds.  I took pictures of the birds feeding for about fifteen minutes, playing peek-a-boo with the morning sunlight, when all of a sudden it happened.  The birds erupted in flight!   Florida Photography - Roseate Spoonbill

My timing could not have been more perfect.  The morning glow lit up the birds perfectly against the gray clouds in the background.  My shutter speed was fast enough to freeze the action and my depth of field captured everything back to the telephone poles.  I could have photoshopped out the poles in the background but I decided to leave them in because without it the picture almost doesn’t look real.

Out of all of the bird pictures that I have taken over the years, I like this one the best.  I took this picture on December 19th, 2009.  I have blown up sections of the picture below to give the viewer a sense of what the picture will look like at full size.  I know this will make a beautiful picture hanging from my wall.

While I do not always bring my shotgun with me I always bring my camera.  You just never know when you are going to be presented with that picture opportunity of a life time.  This time everything worked out perfectly and I was extremely with the results even if the ducks did not want to cooperate.

Florida Cracker Cast Iron Eggs – AKA Eggs Frittata

You never know when inspiration hits.  It was a lazy Sunday morning and the tummy was a rumbling because I was watching the Food Network.  Then I saw one of the chefs take some kind or an egg casserole looking dish out of the oven.  Inspiration just hit.  This is the first time I have ever made anything like this and it came out fantastic!  It was even better cold.

Cornbread

There are so many variations of this I do not know where to start.  So let’s start with the cast iron skillet.  The best corn bread is made in a cast iron skillet that has been preheated to 425 degrees for at least 10 minutes.  This allows the cornbread batter to start cooking and even fry a little when it is poured into the very hot skillet.

Ingredients

  • 1/8″ olive oil or vegetable oil or crisco or good ole fashioned lard
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 Cups Martha Whites Self Rising corn meal (sometimes I use 1 cup cornmeal and 1/2 cup self rising flour for a different texture)
  • 1 cup milk or almond breeze or buttermilk
  • 1/4 – 3/4 cup minced sweet onion (optional but I rarely leave this out! It really makes it sweet and moist)
  • 1/2 cup creamed corn (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon surgar (optional if I want it a little sweet and if I did not have any onions for the mix)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with a cast iron skillet containing 1/8″ of oil for 10-12 minutes.  (Reduce preheat time if grease start smoking)
  2. Mix all ingredients.  Keep in mind that these are guidelines and just modify up or down to get a consistency that can be poured like thick pancake batter.
  3. Batter should sizzle a little when poured in oil just like frying a piece of chicken on low heat.
  4. It takes about 20 minutes depending on how large the mixture, and how much cream corn and onions you put in the mix.  Just poke a round in the middle to make sure it has cooked through and you are done.

Florida Cracker Venison Chili

I was sittin on the front porch whittlin on a stick the other day and I was just thinkin away.  You know that’s what us Florida Crackers do.  We not exactly,  but I was thinking about all of these recipes that I have in a drawer in the kitchen. The first thought is to put them in a 3 ring binder and alphabetize them.  Imagine that.  The second thought was to post them on my blog so that anybody could access them and they would be in a central location for the family.  Plus the search feature on the website would allow me to find any recipe immediately.  So here goes my first entry in the category of Florida Cracker Recipes.

This is a recipe that I came up with by comparing recipes on the internet and modifying them to fit my taste.  Plus I switched the hamburger to ground venison being a Florida Cracker and all.  People seemed to love this version of chili when I served it at our bonfire and at a Christmas party.

Florida Cracker Venison Chili

2 pounds ground venison
2 (15 ounce) Cans Kidney Beans
1 Small Jar of Ragu Traditional Pizza Sauce
1 (32 ounce) Can crushed tomatoes

¼ cup chili powder
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (Use ½ teaspoon for mild to medium)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon white sugar

Directions

  1. Brown the meat then add all ingredients into a large crock pot.
  2. After about 2 hours, taste the chili and adjust salt, pepper and chili powder if necessary.  It takes about 4 hours in the crock pot but the longer the better.
