And that's all, folks. Won't be looking forward to this again next year.
Jay and I went to check out the Hoh Rainforest and added a stop for Rialto Beach. We left at 8am and spent over 4 hours on the road. As we got to Forks, we realized we hadn't given ourselves enough time to get anything done. So instead of doing everything half-assed, we limited the... Continue Reading →
The weather today was gray. At least there was enough texture and movement to create an interesting photo, so I went to Myrtle Edwards Park to get some water shots. My route took me through the Olympic Sculpture Park, so I took a few photos there, too. Ultimately, this was an exercise in composition. It's... Continue Reading →
Are you confused as to why the foreground is so dark when you shoot straight into the sun? Are you unable to make the backgrounds in your photos all "blurry" on demand? Did you buy a Canon DSLR because it's a "professional camera?" Maybe you have no idea what the exposure triangle is or how... Continue Reading →
Caught this view while setting up to shoot at Volunteer Park. A beautiful crescent moon rising as the sun's light peeks above the horizon.
I've decided, based on some of my recent photos, to continue shooting from the most played out locations around Seattle. My original goal when I bought this camera was to find locations that local "photographers" haven't already oversaturated on social media, or to photograph those views in ways others haven't yet done, or can't, with...

The view of Seattle from Rizal Bridge is probably the most shared photo of the city and rivals only the view from Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill. I figured I'd give it my take since the weather cleared out a bit and I wasn't willing to take a chance to go any further in... Continue Reading →
Location scouting in preparation for the lunar eclipse to happen early next morning. Settled on the roof of my condo as my goal is to capture the eclipse with a recognizable landmark in the foreground. My desire is to compress the perspective to make the blood red moon look much larger in relation to the foreground elements.
Yes, you've seen this before. There was a break in the rain after a week so I took advantage. This shot is so overplayed, it's ridiculous, but I decided to use it as a learning moment.
The plan was to take photographs predawn and during blue hour. I got out the door really late after instinctively grabbing the wrong bag the first time I left and didn't notice until I got to the pier. Ultimately, I took the water taxi to West Seattle and decided to shoot like I'd planned, just... Continue Reading →
Went for a hike up to Twin Falls with a friend to take some photos. The goal was to use our filters to take slow shutter shots of the landscape. Our original plan was to do this at Keekwulee Falls above Denny Creek Campground but weather and an impassable road forced us to use our... Continue Reading →
