Somewhere in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Water Flows

Maybe I'm in a dark mood today, because every photo I'm editing or re-editing is taking on a dark tone.  I'm sure if I redid these a week from now, they would be completely different.  The beauty of photography, a digital world and an ever-changing mind.

+George Fletcher - This is the 3rd time I've edited this photo. Each one is completely different. First time I've done it in mono.

Ready for Takeoff

I shot this photo 6 days ago while waiting for my flight to take off.  It was one of those "Oh, this looks like it would be a cool shot.. Quick turn the camera on!" types of shots.  I really like how it turned out.  

On another note, I used to love flying, but my last flight home on Sunday night was the worst flight ever.  I think the whole plane thought we were going to crash.  Glad to be back home!

An Afternoon Twirl

I decided to make a little art today and mash up some textures with a photo of this bamboo that's in my kitchen.  It's been a really long time since I blended a bunch of textures.  Had to relearn a little in the process!

Oh, how I miss NYC!  

I was just playing around with Lightroom CC!  Loving that you can merge pano's right in the program now and it creates a raw file from them.  This image was all done straight in LR, 5 image pano from the Top of the Rock. I can't find any faults with the merging at all.  Love it.

I got my copy of the #plusonecollection today and I am blown away

Everything about the book is fantastic! I'm in sheer awe of the photos and I haven't even looked through half the book yet. Also, seeing my photo printed is pretty exciting as well.

I'm so glad I could be a part of this and help raise money for Eliza.

Are You Ready?

Spring Training is finally here!  I'm hoping my boss will let me leave early on Wednesday to see the home opener for the Rangers/Royals.  I live right by their stadium, so that's who we most frequently see.

Settling in for the night with a good read. Just got back from Michigan late last night to find +Vivienne Gucwa's book in my mailbox! I've been wanting this book ever since it was released. Glad I have it now! Only problem is that it's gonna make me want to go back to NYC way sooner than I can.

Keeping the Desert on My Mind

I don't really know what cold weather is anymore.  It's been 4 years since I've seen winter/snow.  That's about to change in a couple days.  On Thursday I'm flying to Milwaukee and then going to Green Bay and the UP.  I get scared every time I look at the forecast.  They sure like to use the words Bitterly Cold and Frigid.  Thank goodness I didn't get rid of my winter gear when I moved to AZ!!!

Introduction
Photography enthusiast based in Phoenix, AZ.  I studied photography for 7 years while in college and secondary school, mostly processing film back in those days and working in a darkroom.  I hesitated to adapt to new digital technologies, but have started to embrace it in the past year.  Now I couldn't imagine going back to using film.
