Invisible Sun - Infrared Photography by TheGreatPhotoGuy.com


Invisible Sun actually becomes visible through the cast Chicago sky with the use of infrared camera.

McDonald's #1 - TheGreatPhotoGuy.com


I think this is one of the coolest Americana things in Illinois.
When you compare how things were in 1955 and today, it is amazing that it is the same reality.
This is one of my favorite things to do when you can't think of something to do.
If you look at the picture, you can see the McDonald's family crest to the left.
Not much of a menu by today's standards.

Wikipedia has a very detailed write up on Store #1. I was unaware that this was a replica and only the sign is original.

Statue of Liberty in the Amber Waves - TheGreatPhotoGuy.com


American Treasure
Statue of Liberty from the perspective that TheGreatPhotoGuy sees.
Beauty is more beautiful when surrounded by beauty.
We need to look outside what we see to sometimes see the remarkable.
Sometimes just turning the bend and looking up will show you a world you have never noticed.
People walk through life only seeing what they are exposed to rather than exposing themselves to their surroundings with awareness.

Make America EAT Again


More signs of stupidity....literally appear in the least expected places.
This picture was taken from the street outside the Northfield Republicans Campaign Office.
This really shows the mental capacity of the inner workings of the GOP in the North Shore region of Chicago.
Out of curiosity, I looked at their facebook page which lead me to their website.
http://www.northfieldgop.com/
It consists of a tipsy kitten falling over....and over....and over...
I truly feel sorry for people that are so stupid that they don't even know it. They are the butt of their own joke.
Honestly, you can't expect people to like or embrace you when your heart is filled with such immense anger and hatred. We can only hope that karma and the good lord with treat them with a health dose of treating them just like they treat others. (Bible reference)

I think the message is confusing though.

Are you encouraging people to eat? Is there a FREE LUNCH?
Are you implying an eating disorder of some type? Force feeding perhaps?

Either way, it just shows that the uneducated seem to be at the driver seat of this campaign. Maybe they think they can find enough dumb people to vote for Trump. Somehow, I doubt this was a sinister plan to use reverse psychology...

Good luck with your EAT campaign. You will probably be eating something that rhymes with NO! Soon.

Learning how to use a camera - TheGreatPhotoGuy.com


When I started out on the path to professional photography, I KNEW NOTHING.

Sure, I would putter around with a camera in AUTO like the rest of the world.
Then one day I went for an interview with a company that does photography for little league teams. The woman asked me the following question. "If it is a sunny day and the clouds roll in while you are photographing the team, how would you change the shutter speed?" DOH!

Well, I watched all the YouTube videos and read tons of blogs about ISO, aperture and blah blah blah. Kinda made sense and it didn't. I was probably more confused and frustrated than ever before.

I saw an ad for photographers to shoot marathons. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! How could I goof this up? Looks like they were just looking for bodies to hold cameras.

When I got there, there were about 20 photographers. You went to the table, you picked up one of their cameras and you were assigned to a team. The team lead was an experienced photographer who was going to make sure you had everything set for you to make them tons of money.

I got an education on how to operate the camera in manual mode. The more marathons I did, the better I got. Then I was asked by a graduation company to do the same thing. I learned more and more with varying shots.

Now I know that if I am indoors and my presets are over or under exposed, how to adjust the camera to get the sharpest picture.

I guess my recommendation would be look for a meetup group for photography or look for one of these marathon graduation companies to gain exposure to professional photographers.

You will learn a ton, hopefully have fun and earn some money!
