Rare Sun on a Snowy Day

If you have followed my page for any amount of time, you will notice one thing about my work… I am barely in it! Meaning I have, probably, around three headshots. Which, isn’t good since I have been doing this since…well… about 2012.

Anyways, today was a strange day. A rare day of sun with a side of snow. So I decided to take advantage of it, and turn around the camera for once.

Now I can finally update LinkedIn.

Behind The Scenes Of A Photobox

Sometimes, the best subject of something is a little broader.

The evening I took this photo, I was having trouble coming up with something to take a photo of. I was trying new techniques with my lenses, settings, and subjects. But no matter what I did, I just wasn’t getting what I wanted – which happens from time to time. No matter what you do, you just can’t get what you want.

I was wrapping everything up, when I took just one last shot of the photobox itself. My house was dark other than this setup, and it created a scene that almost told a story of that evening.

The night itself was the subject.

Beach Solitude

A few years ago, I took a beautiful trip to South Carolina, the first time I had ever been to the Eastern Seaboard, unless you count NYC?

One of the best things I did on this trip was get up early, and check out a sunrise on a brisk summer morning.

Now that I have more experience, I would love to return and experience even more. It’s truly amazing what you can see in your own backyard.

Penny For Your Thoughts

Sometimes I really do think of the most random things to take photos of. Tonight? Some change I had been saving for about a year.

I have been super into macro-photography lately, and what I have found out is that involves a LOT of dusting…

Evening Sunrise

Every once in a while, I will be doing something along my day and suddenly think of something I would like to create as a vector. I am not even sure why or where it comes from. Sometimes, the results aren’t that good – sometimes I am a fan of them.

This one? Not sure. But I am happy that I made it.

Retouching An Old Favorite

Over the years, I have done a lot of things in the creative field. I have done photography, writing, digital imaging, and even painting (that was a short-lived adventure).

I really am happy that I have gotten to do and try so many things. The only issue is that when I move onto another medium, I tend to forget about the others for some time – minus photography. And one of those was my first love of digital imaging.

Thankfully, I have decided to get back into it, and I have started just throwing out whatever I can think of.

This was based on a project, kind of a combo, of some work I did way back in 2009. I really think it’s a good showing of how I have gained skills, but also still have the same feel.

NEW BOOK – Out Now!

Hey, everyone!

You read that right, my new book is out NOW! Only a year after my first publication. This was something that I knew immediately I wanted to write, and I am really happy with how it came out.

Available now on Amazon.

It’s a great tale about a young kid from a small hometown, who wants nothing more than to make something of himself, and do something no one ever thought was possible.

Thank you for all of your support, let me know what you think!

Used Deck of Cards

One thing I think that every home should have, a good deck of cards and a poker set. It really is something that can be busted out any time there are some good friends over. Just a way to break the tension of life and to relax a little bit.

This is my deck, and it has seen a lot of play, a lot of memories, and a lot of laughs.

Gotta love it.

Totally NOT Photoshopped…

I was just thinking today about how I needed to get more into composite images.

For a while, I was one of the “purists” and thought it was kind of a cop-out to make clearly fake images like the one above.

Then I realized I didn’t care, and they’re fun to make! So I am going to keep doing them whenever I come with an idea. Which happens from time to time.

Confused Little Flower

We all get confused from time to time – apparently flowers have those days too.
