As I fall further behind on some post-processing, I will be embarking on a 6 day trip to Maui (staying in Kaanapali) starting tomorrow.  No doubt, I’ll come back with more pictures to add to my pile, but I’m really looking forward to getting away for a few days.  During this time, though I will […]

Prints for Sale (Coming Soon)

I’ve been a bit busy lately planning and figuring out how I am going to offer prints to those that are interested in buying them.  I am enjoying the pictures on my walls, so why shouldn’t I allow my fans to enjoy them as well, right? After reading and rereading Brian Auer’s Series on Making […]

Turn to Clear

Description:   I actually pulled this one up through a random page in my Flickr stream and was surprised to see I had not posted it on this blog yet.  A year after I’ve taken this shot and I think it is one of my favorites.  Funny enough, it apparently did not make my Top 10 […]

Becky and Chris’s Wedding

A bit late getting this post up, but better late than never, right? Over the weekend of May 30th, I captured my first solo wedding assignment in Davis, California.  Following Becky and Chris’s Engagement session, it was obvious that Chris and Becky had a great connection, and that connection continued to shine through their wedding.  […]

The Creation of Adam II

Description:  Taken looking straight up at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel during my latest travels to Italy, I decided to process this photo in black and white to accent the contrast presented in the painting.  This crop and final photo really presents a different feel and emotion than the one I processed in color […]

Dorothy – BW$P

Meet Dorothy. As I headed to the bus stop from work today, I bumped into Dorothy on the corner of Pine and Montgomery asking for change.  I approached her and explained my BW$P Project.  She didn’t agree right away, but rather stated, “I’ve been sitting on this corner since 6am this morning and all I’ve […]
