This time of the year is tough for me…narrowing down over 100 days of shooting into 13 images that sum up the year. This difficulty is compounded by the never ending picking apart I do of each picture. I’m never happy with the processing completely, and never happy with ultimately how the finished piece looks.

(The above photo is NOT real, I made it in Photoshop, to help demonstrate a concept…I know your first thought was, IT’S ABOUT TIME!!!)

Thoughts on Photography Competitions…

I hate photography contests. A lot. The number one reason I hate them is because I’m hyper competitive, and I HATE losing. I hate it so much that when I lose (and that’s normally the case) I pout for a week, sometimes (most times) longer. Losing is most commonly the outcome for all of us More »

I’m in the process of putting up some changes to the website. That all seems fine and dandy, but the real test will be to see if I ACTUALLY DO. I need to update my gallery, badly. I need to update the intro-slide show, badly. I need to update the ordering procedure as well, badly. More »
