Requests

Apparently I’m taking requests now.

So my wife has developed quite the “photographer’s eye” these days.

Differences

Put aside your political views/opinions for about 45 minutes each day.  Enjoy the fact that there’s always this to look forward to.

It’s been a while since I shot anything and I know this is a similar composition, but it’s never really the same. | Order a print of this image.

Snow Haiku

I don’t like the cold
The sun looks great in Winter
I want some bacon

I really like the juxtaposition of the cool tones and the warm tones. | Order a print of this image.

Last Sunrise

I made it up for the last sunrise of 2016.  This is a photography blog so that’s enough words.

Jamestown Island

I’ve found that some of the best sunrises are during the winter months.  It’s tough, though, to get motivated to get out of a warm bed and subject myself to frozen hands, but the end result is usually well worth it.

Maiden Voyage

Well, So far so good.  I took the new Mavic Pro out for its first flight this morning and was impressed with everything about it.  It’s easy to set up, unassuming and is incredibly easy to fly (as I expected having used DJI products for almost 3 years now).  Its image quality is incredible for as unassuming as it is.  It’s ultra portable and the battery lasts forever.  It doesn’t take the place of my Inspire 1, but is simply another tool in the toolbox for this massive gear head.

Stubborn

Through some pretty intense back pain I still managed to get out on Saturday to shoot the Battlefield Half Marathon.  Although I wasn’t as mobile as I was the previoius two years, I still got some great Fall colors and an awesome sunrise.  I suppose I should have taken it easy, but I’m just stubborn that way I guess.  After all, I got the shot!

Absence

Has your heart grown fonder?  It seems like it’s getting longer between posts for me.  I suppose that means I’m busy these days with my studio work, which is good for me, but I need those days wheere I can just go out and shoot what moves me and just be creative.

Folgers

Waking up early is no big thing when you know it’s gonna look like this.  It doesn’t matter what brand of coffee you drink, I still think this is the best part of waking up.

I’m Back…

It felt like a surgical scene as I was reassembling the drone last night, but I’m back.  It’s back.  My nerves are going to really keep me in check for a while after that incident.  Perhaps that was a good thing.

I think I'll need to go through all the settings again.  The rebuild must have sent everything back to factory default.  I typically shoot at 100 ISO, but this one was shot @ 1600!

Cover

This one has cover photo written all over it.  Or I might hang it on the wall.  Either way I really like how it turned out.
