A Little Organization

I have never been a really good furniture buyer. my home is full of mismatched furniture, some of it hand-me-down or second-hand, some of it was new, but they all lacked a bit of cohesion. it’s something I’m slowly working on. my friend over at swalrus.org is moving and had a set of Ikea Pax […]

Steel Wool Spinning

I have always been interested in long exposures. there is a certain appeal to getting the shot just right and having to really plan ahead and make sure you get everything looking how you want it to. I think for most people, it starts with the simplest thing: a flashlight.

2011 in One Photo

This is easily my favorite photo of 2011. The morning newspaper had a section on the top photos of 2011, and although there were plenty of memorable and tragic moments captured throughout the world, this one of Scott Jones and Alexandra Thomas was one of the viral photos of the year.

Since the weddings and engagement surprise this year, I have been reading about ways to help improve my photography skills. one exercise I read about was a 50-50-50 project. the idea is you shoot at 50mm, walk around taking photos every 50 feet (15-20 steps), and take 50 photos. the idea is to force yourself […]
