Just recently got a new Nikon D750. Along with a new lens and a Lens Baby Muse.  I'm completely blown away by this upgrade. For years I've been shooting with a D80 and then a D5000 and for awhile there I was getting really good results with those camera's. I still think the D5000 is a great camera with a good lens. But, after awhile I was noticing a lack of quality that I just wasn't getting with my gear. I'm so thankful this new stuff and it's going to be such a huge help with getting better images. I can't wait to share all the awesome stuff I plan on shooting. 

The only thing I'd like to point out about the camera is the wi-fi...It's so awesome to have that instant access to transfer images from the camera to my phone. But, I noticed (as seen in these photos when zoomed in) that after I make my edits in VSCO (which is the iPhone editing app I use the most) that it completely depletes the quality and causes the little vertical lines all over the images.  So far I've only noticed it with certain VSCO presets, not every preset caused this to happen. So, I'll continue to upload my images & make all my edits on my desktop computer with Lightroom/Photoshop to avoid any of that nonsense.

Road Trip 2017 - Part One

Road Trip 2017
Alpine, TX

Just recently, my other half and I took a much needed, long over due road trip from NJ to TN to West TX and back. We took well over 4,000 photos, 1,000 videos+ with our phones and camera's and the amount of images to organize now has been a bit overwhelming. I'm uploading the whole trip to my Flickr in stages (unedited and edited) so if you want to see the photos check out the album HERE.  I'll be posting tons more over the next few weeks and hopefully will get some time to maybe post about individual locations.

New Prints on Etsy

New Print on Etsy

In 2010 I started an Etsy shop where I began selling prints of my photography. Around that time people were asking for prints, and I had done a few small exhibitions so I figured I'd make some of my images available.  Just as it started picking up...I was making sales and getting good reviews...It was a small start, but it was a start. Then, life happened and I just didn't put the time into keeping it going, regretfully.  In fact, I stopped being active with social media all together.  Who knows how well my shop might have done if I had just kept it going?

Well, I'm giving it another shot. Although my personal photography has been sparse over the years, I've built up a collection of photographs and have had a few requests.  I'm in full swing photography mode whether it's shooting, planning shoots, exploring for locations, finding frames, altering and painting frames, printing my photographs, editing, retouching and adding new and framed images to my Etsy shop. I'm eager to make it happen. :)

Please visit my Shop HERE

Any requests or suggestions? I'd love to hear them
