Blah Blah, I’m Tired of Hearing About the 5D!

April 11, 2012 | No comments yet

I realize a lot of posts recently have been very gear-centric. I also realize that I have a tendency to go down that path, especially when I have something new to write about and talk about and generally annoy people about. I just wanted to say, rest assured, I have been out shooting as much […]

Vacation or Photo Expedition? Balancing Photography and Family

March 27, 2012 | One comment

If you are like me, any time you take a trip somewhere, you get excited about opportunities to see new things with fresh eyes. Not only do you have some time away from the daily grind, but you have some time away from the familiar, and you can recharge your creative batteries. Every time I […]

Taking a Step Back

March 19, 2012 | No comments yet

Today is going to be a little bit of a continuation of what I wrote after Tracy Turpen’s death a few months ago. I realize that was the moment when my renewed initiative to post regularly went by the wayside. I don’t think it’s cause and effect, exactly, but it gave me some perspective, and […]

Of course I haven’t, but I feel […]

Egrets! An Essay on How to Be Prepared and Unprepared for a Shoot

September 13, 2011 | No comments yet

Those that know me know that above all, I am a portrait shooter–I like photographing people. However, as I’ve mentioned before in this blog, when I’m not photographing people, I push myself to photograph other things–landscapes, wildlife, skateboarding, whatever. Whether the photographic results are good or bad, they always teach me something, usually useful, about […]

Spain and the Panasonic GF1 Revisited

June 3, 2011 | No comments yet

I have been back from Spain for a little over a week now, and in that time I have shot a wedding and gotten back into the swing of things. Of course for the wedding, I used my usual Canon gear, and it was a great juxtaposition after having used just the GF1 for a […]
