Of Fog and Sun

January 15, 2014 | One comment

It doesn’t happen often, but every once in awhile, I get the opportunity to go out and photograph, unfettered by job or child or worry. Free to focus on whatever I find, I can slowly suss out themes, motifs, and pay keener attention to the subtle changes of the landscape. For a normally extroverted person, […]

Winter Doldrums – Keeping on When There’s No Color & No Snow

December 30, 2013 | No comments yet

This blog is dedicated to my wife Hanna, who has to put up with my complaining and frustration every winter as I pass through these winter doldrums. It is also dedicated to Isaac, my intrepid companion on many of my excursions. He puts up with cold, rain, and boredom in exchange for the occasional ice […]

Adventures on the Olympic Peninsula

February 5, 2013 | No comments yet

For days I’ve been wringing my hands, starting and re-starting blog posts. Organizing thoughts, shuffling, organizing anew. There is a bigness to this trip I’ve just completed. There are a multitude of photos, of experiences, of personalities. I’ve decided to start with the Olympic Peninsula. It’s not chronological, and I don’t care. When I originally […]

It was unusually foggy yesterday afternoon and this morning, so I took the opportunity to get some ethereal photographs of the weather.

Photographing Things the Wrong Way

January 8, 2013 | No comments yet

There are some rules, written and unwritten, about photography. Longer focal lengths and wide apertures are for portraits, wide angles and small apertures are for landscapes. There are reasons for these rules, of course–with portraits you want to emphasize your subject and remove distraction, and with landscapes you want everything in focus and often want […]

Not Everything Needs to be “Beautiful”

December 11, 2012 | No comments yet

The wintertime is a favorite time for me to photograph. You have to dig a little deeper, you have to work a little harder. The days are short, the nights long. In North Carolina, the heat and humidity are gone and I feel like I can breathe, that I can move around comfortably. The colors […]

Month of Monochrome: Progress Report

June 13, 2012 | No comments yet

Just wanted to report that my month+ of shooting black and white for all my personal work is still going strong, though I’ve snuck a color image or two in there because the colors were so epic and I couldn’t resist. I’ve also used black and white for some paid work, just not exclusively. Hope […]

Walk Along the Eno

June 4, 2012 | No comments yet

No musings today, just a monochrome from a walk along the Eno River in Durham. The colors were so pretty this day it was hard to shoot only in black and white, but I like the results. At least 94% of what I enjoy about this photo is that I took it as part of […]

A Month of Monochrome: First Impressions

May 30, 2012 | No comments yet

A little over two weeks ago, I declared that for all my personal work, I would shoot in black and white exclusively. So far, I’ve kept to it, for the most part. I have over a month to go, but have already taken a number of photos in various types of monochrome. So far, I’ll […]

Falls Lake Reflections

May 16, 2012 | No comments yet

I wish I had a better name for this photo, because it represents some of my favorite things about the South. I love the North Carolina clouds and spring thunderstorms. I’m not sure that I could live anywhere that didn’t have thunderstorms or, even though I swear I hate them, those muggy afternoons before the […]
