I was getting pretty nervous about this shoot as we ran into some traffic problems and it was scheduled for late in the day to get some sunset and twilight pictures. But as it turns out, my anxiety (as usual) was a big waste of time. These might be some of my favorite engagement shots […]
Rachel (and her now husband, Willie) and I swam together in high school! So this bridal shoot involved a little trip down memory lane in addition to being a challenge weather wise. It rained most of the morning I was there for the shoot so we improvised. Fortunately many of the pictures turned out and […]
A couple weekends ago I went to a bluegrass festival in Gold Hill, NC. Now Gold Hill, NC is a TINY town. TINY TINY TINY. It’s steeped in history, has bluegrass at the ‘general store’ every friday and is a great little place to escape the world for a few hours. They don’t even have […]
So more shots using my macro filters. Macro filters are WAY cheaper than a macro lens. 😉 Do you have a macro lens? Do you like it? Have you used macro filters? Which do you prefer? I’m fine using the filters for now.
I had off good Friday and had heard this was the last weekend for the Mummies show down at Discovery Place in Charlotte. I think everyone else in the world heard too, because the place was packed. Nonetheless, Emily, Starling and I went. I was so excited to go see the IMAX movie and exhibit […]
Got a new toy this morning! A tilt-shift lens! Took Daisy downtown and went exploring for a couple hours. What a beautiful day it was for a walk & shoot… I took about 150 shot and here are my favorites.
I’m participating in the Leadership Rowan program this year. Several weeks ago we had a kick off weekend retreat at the Catholic Conference Center in Hickory, NC. I spent some time walking around and snapping some shots in my free time.
This show has been up at my high school all summer. A great success! The ability of Nature to demolish; to take over (and over take), reclaim what was originally Hers is readily apparent in images of abandoned & decaying buildings. Scant evidence of human interference, the obvious locale of a Friday night party, is an interesting contradiction […]
Pop Quiz! What’s the best way to spend a beautiful Sunday evening in May? If you guessed visiting a farm, sipping wine, listening to music, eating local delicious food & basking in the sun with friends ~ give yourself a gold star! Sunday night I went to the Bread Riot here in Rowan County. The […]
Often I find myself wanting to take my camera out and shoot on Friday afternoons when I get home from work, especially when it’s beautiful outside and especially since I’ve gotten my new cameras and some macro filters. So thats exactly what I did Friday night before heading out on the town for the evening. […]
