Back on the farm

Monday morning greetings from somewhere in Texas!

Depending on when you read this, I’m on my way back from a weekend shoot in Houston, Tx. I drove down on Thursday and Friday, did the gig on Saturday and Sunday and will be back to Peoria on Monday night! I was shooting at the 40th annual International Quilt Festival and it was impressive to say the least! The other really fun thing is that I ran into a number of former PJS Publications (Peoria based national magazines) people that I haven’t seen for a number of years! In some ways, it was like old home week and that was very fun!!!!

One of the other fun gigs that I did a week ago was being able to get back to shooting some photos down on the farm with my friends from Case-IH. We ended up shooting some of their smaller utility tractors that are great for doing work around a farm or a country house. We had a two day shoot and for most of the first day, the weather was less then favorable! It was super foggy and misty and in my world that doesn’t make for great photography (at least how I view the world). We did have one shot though that first morning that I really ended up loving and this was the shot! We had a bunch of the golden fall leaves on the ground and there was a light mist in the air, so it really gave this shot a lot of mood!

Here’s my “not normal Kevin May” photo and I hope that you like it as much as I do!

Have a great week as always and thanks again for checking out my work!!!!

It’s planting time!!!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!

This year has been a very wacky year for weather and I’ve heard that we had the second coldest April since they have been keeping records! Besides being cold in April, it was also very wet with record flooding in parts of the Midwest. For our farming friends trying to get their crops planted in the fields, it means they are waiting for things to dry up and warm up. We’re now getting to a point where things are starting to look up for our farmers and the weather is getting a little better and they are getting out and getting their seed planted!

Here’s one of my snaps from last weeks first farming shoot of the year! This is always something that I really enjoy shooting and like the farmers wanting to plant their crops, I can’t wait to get out and do a little farming photography!!!!

Here’s a Facebook version of the photo as well!

I hope that you have a great week to come and thanks as always for checking out my work!!!!!

Harvesting season is here!

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!!!!

It’s that time of the year here in the Midwest when the farmers are out harvesting their crops. Here in the Peoria area they have gotten a lot done and when you drive around you’ll see how many fields have been harvested!

I was out shooting some harvesting shots with my friends at LG Seeds this past Thursday morning and it was one of those days that was just beautiful!!! It was a nice cool fall day and lots of sun and it sure made up for a long hot summer!!! We were able to get a number of great shots and I’ve got a couple that I’m sharing with you today!!!!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and I hope that you have a wonderful week to come!!!!!
