Environmental Portraiture – Final Portfolio

Thursday (Halloween) was my last day for one of my classes this semester, Environmental Portraiture. Short review with the instructor of my final portfolio of images and I was free to go. Overall it was a great class and I really enjoyed it. I’ve collected together all the images into a single gallery and I […]


A Strange(r) Problem

A couple Saturdays ago I did something very unusual; I went to the local farmer’s market. You’re probably thinking that’s not unusual at all, people do it all the time. Normally you’d be correct but this is me we’re talking about. Let me break it down for you: The Farmer’s Market is from 8 a.m. […]


Railroad Portraits

We’ll start with the boring bit first today: these photos were taken on assignment for my Environmental Portraiture class this semester. One had to be done using a reflector and the other with a pocket strobe (aka speedlight, speedlite, flashgun, or whatever you want to call it). Originally I had planned on shooting these assignments on location during our in-class […]

Sunset Day!

Happy Sunset Day! Everybody loves a good sunset, right? The brilliant color display, the happy ending to a long day, the warm fuzzy feeling you get deep inside watching the sun quietly slip below the horizon. Or maybe you experience a lonely, sobering feeling as another day passes away. Either way, sundown is a special […]


Nonstop: A Black & White Miniseries

When I took my  Black & White Digital Imaging class earlier this year one of the assignments we had was a personal project. Essentially, we had to create a miniseries of images centered around something of our choosing. Here’s what I came up with. The Idea(s) The idea I first had was to do daytime […]

Fluid Design Workshop Images

A few weeks back I went to a workshop for creating abstract-type fluid design photos. Here’s some of the images I’ve processed from that (you get to see just how unapologetic I sometimes am with processing).  The Workshop At the beginning of August friend and fellow photographer Katie Coulter gave a workshop about the technique […]

The Spirit of Summer Series

This summer I had to take a digital imaging course and part of what I had to do was create a theme-based series of images. The theme I decided to go with focuses on capturing the “spirit of summer”. There’s two parts to how I planned on achieving this. This first part was choosing content […]
