Donated Art To Local Public Television Station

Here is my donation this year to Think TV’s auction. Many businesses from the Dayton area donate products and services for them to auction as a fundraiser. I donate a family portrait and wall portrait every year. The family portrait can be on location at a park, or at the winner’s house. It’s a great time to get the whole family together, all the aunts and uncles, all the cousins, all your brothers and sisters together for a portrait. Go to my family portrait page to see more samples, ClearyCreativePhoto.com/family_portraits.

I also donate a piece of art. This winter I created a photograph of Downtown Dayton after sunset. In winter the Miami River is usually higher because the ground is frozen and all the water runs into the river. The higher river creates a beautiful reflection of the downtown buildings.  Go to my fine arts photography page to see more Downtown Dayton images.

High School Senior Portraits

Dalton from Stebbins high school in Dayton, Ohio came in for his high school senior portraits. We did studio portraits as well as casual outdoor high school senior photographs. Dalton was great to work with. His mother wanted black & white photographs as well as color. Dalton did have some of the normal teenage acne and because we do retouching on every image the portraits really turned out perfect.

Black & White photograph of snow on Wolf Creek at Wesleyan MetroPark

Black & White photograph at Weslyan Dayton Metro Park, Dayton, Ohio

Day four of my black & white photo challenge. I made this photograph two years ago right after Christmas. We had about eight inches of snow and then a high pressure system came in so there was a beautiful blue sky. Normally in Ohio in the winter the sky is a gloomy sort of gray. I went to Wesleyan MetroPark which is small park close to downtown Dayton. There are three small rivers that converge at downtown Dayton and the river that goes through Weslyan MetroPark is called the Wolf Creek. I made many really good photographs that day but this is the best black & white photograph.
