In November I was able to shoot Sports Authority Field at Sunset while it was lit up for a #DenverBroncos game. This is a three image panorama processed in Lightroom and On1 10. #UnitedInOrange

I was able to get out last weekend with my new 7D Mark II (Thank you B&H for the killer deal). The area where I shot was covered in hoar frost the day before, but that was all gone when I got over to the river. All that was left were these puffy little ice mounds on top of the frozen water. I decided to try shooting some intimate little abstract scenes based on what I saw. This was my favorite image from the morning. There's more story on my blog at www.focustheframe.com.

Today on my blog, I shared how this is my favorite portrait I have ever taken. This man guided us on an Elephant tour through the jungle in Thailand back in 2006.

I made this image last night, and am hoping it can be the first I post in this community.   
 
I am so very glad I didn't watch yesterday's Broncos game. I was on the roof of a parking garage in downtown looking west. I have many images to process, but I like this one a lot. This one is going up on my wall.

If you want to read more about how this image came to be, it goes live on my blog (www.focustheframe.com) at 10:00 a.m.

This photo is from way back in my archives, taken in 2008 at my (then) companies summer picnic. It's just a bubble from one of those things that blows them into the air, but I love how you can see the reflection of the building in the bubble. And then there's those clouds...

Just wanted to quickly share this photo I processed after writing yesterday's blog post.  All the processing was done in +ON1 10.  Like it?  Don't like it?  I love feedback, so please check out the rest of my blog at the link below and let me know what you think.  Thanks.
While I was writing yesterdays post on my first impressions of On1 10, I came across this image from 2010 of a sunset rainbow down in Great Sand Dunes National Park near Alamosa, Colorado. This photo is significant to me, as it is one of the only times I have been able to get my wife to go hiking. Anyway, I started to play around with some of the filters and presets in the On1 Effects suite, and I really liked the end results that I ...

Story
Tagline
A photographer moonlighting as a Quality Assurance Specialist in the Biotech industry.
Introduction
I have been interested in photography since High School, but never wanted to pony up the cash for a camera.  Big mistake I know.  My father-in-law sold me his Canon D350 in 2006 while on a family trip to Thailand.  I have been shooting images ever since.

I am not a pro, but I'm not a beginner either.  There are many aspects of my photography that can improve, and I am humble enough to admit it and to ask for help where appropriate.

In February, 2012, I started my own website, www.focustheframe.com.  It is still a work in progress, but it will get there eventually.

My claim to fame is that I once won two airline tickets by guessing the distance of a Colorado Rockies home run hit in the bottom of the fifth inning to +/- five feet.  This radio contest had been going on for years, every season, with one random guesser chosen per game.  I submitted my guess at the beginning of the season.  After I won, the contest suddenly stopped.  I honestly think I am the only one who ever successfully pulled this off.

I live in Denver, with my wife and two daughters and I couldn't be happier.
