Fathers ⋆ Lindsay Docherty Photography

Fathers

Personal

About this time last year I learned how to develop film and print my own images in the darkroom. I wanted to give my first finished picture to my dad for his birthday on June 23rd. I agonized over which image to choose. I finally decided on this iris and spent weeks perfecting my chemical baths, lights, and dodging and burning to create a portrait I was proud to give him.

He was the one who gave me my first camera and encouraged my love of photography. He has been proud of me every step of the way through all trials and tribulations.

I have just experienced my first Father’s Day without my father. He passed away July 7th, 2006 from lung cancer at age 60. I miss him immensely and wish I could share many more pictures with him.

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” Jim Valvano

p.s. I wish I had more pictures of my Dad – take your camera with you every single time you see your parents. You won’t regret it.

In this area it seems we get a few glorious days of fall before we all have to break out our parkas an ...

RARE Behind the Scenes Pictures of Clinton and Trump
Considering the Republican Party candidate is a reality TV star and the Democratic candidate has been in the public eye for decades, it’s remarkable how little we know about who they really are.  That’s why it was so gratifying that Lindsay Docherty Photography was granted special access to the candidates while they did something unusual – spent the morning together.  Scroll down to see how well red and blue played with one another. The action between the camera takes is where the punches are thrown.  Trump berated Clinton for being a “Liar, liar, pants on fire!!” and insisted that he would put her in time out if elected.  Clinton held her ...

Every month I feature a new image for download for you to use as your desktop background. Click to download it and see it at its huge size and resolution.Wow, I can't believe that I've already been here for 5 months. I still feel like I'm getting used to everything. The weather is still nutty but oh how I love Springtime in Pennsylvania. The past few weeks everything has just opened up. I've been driving all over the Main Line for photo sessions and have seen all this lushness everywhere. Happiness is having the doors and windows open and a light breeze blowing through the house. Add my new flowers (pansies, daffodils) right out my win ...
