Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

January 6, 2016 | 5 comments

And scenery flies when you’re moving quickly. I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I posted last on this blog. 2015 proved a transformative year, and when I look back through my photos over the last twelve months, there are far fewer than in years past. The focus seems more inward, more intimate, […]

Big Images and Small Cameras in the City

September 8, 2014 | 2 comments

I’m not sure I need too many reminders about why I have enjoyed the switch to a Fuji system so much. I have outlined many of the reasons in previous posts, and now I find myself in Brooklyn to shoot a wedding, and I am reminded once again of why I wax so poetic about […]

Life, Sadness, Photography

August 26, 2014 | 5 comments

It’s been awhile, I know. A few weeks ago, a photographer friend of mine passed away, having fought melanoma for the last few years. He’d started new treatments, seemed to be doing well. I hadn’t heard from him much, hadn’t seen much activity on Facebook, and knew he wasn’t traveling and photographing as much as […]

More Thoughts on the Fuji X-E1

June 27, 2014 | 11 comments

A little while ago, I spent some quality time comparing the Fuji X-E1 to the newer X-E2. I tried to give an honest appraisal of both cameras, pointing out where the X-E2 had leapt forward, and where it still fell short. In that comparison, I praised the X-E1 for its excellent value, image quality, and […]

Broken Record, Needle Stuck

June 19, 2014 | One comment

In my last blog post, I went back through some ~2 megapixel photos from my honeymoon in 2004. Since then, I have continued to mine older photographs from my hard drive, and they have continued to make me think about the relationships between our equipment and our creativity. It is a fascinating process to see […]

#TBT: A Journey Into the Early Days of Digital

June 5, 2014 | No comments yet

#TBT… Throw Back Thursday, the internet hashtag event where you post a photo from recent or more distant past. I haven’t participated much before, as all my¬†really old photos worth sharing are actually my dad’s, and he has them filed away somewhere on strips of this stuff called¬†film. I didn’t take many photos myself in […]

The Story

May 19, 2014 | No comments yet

I have many favorite images taken at many weddings–staged moments, candid moments, cheesy moments and serious moments. Black and white, color, raucous or quiet, the only constant of these photos, other than the photographer behind the camera–is that all of these images tell a story. Some of the stories are small, and some are big, […]

Unplugged… ish

April 22, 2014 | No comments yet

Obviously I’m not totally unplugged, since I’m taking a quiet moment to blog from the beach. But I’ll keep it short, and feature the photos more than the words. For whatever reason, most of the photos I’m taking at the beach I’m manipulating heavily in post process to fit various aesthetics. I am working towards […]

The Best Camera

April 8, 2014 | No comments yet

Here’s the scenario: off and on rain all day, Durham Bulls game moved up half an hour because of more rain coming later, constant threat of rain delay or cancellation. Bulls tickets aren’t expensive, but neither are they cheap. Our seats were out in the open, uncovered, where we can be close to the action. […]

We Have it So Good, and We Don’t Even Know It

April 2, 2014 | One comment

I spent a couple of hours this weekend photographing the 2014 Ninth Street Derby and having a blast. In years past, I have learned that manual focusing is often the only way to go for some of the shots I get, even with the most sophisticated cameras on the market (last year I shot with […]
