It’s that time of year again. 2022 was an odd year in photography for me. I was less than inspired most of the time. My 52 project fell short, and I can’t blame Covid this time. I’m really not looking to blame anything—2022 was what it was. It was great in so many ways, and... Continue Reading →
We were just sitting in the office and decided the light was good enough for a shoot. I miss shoots like this. No planning or preparation--just grab the camera and try to avoid traffic. I'm hoping we can do more this winter.
I realize this has nothing to do with photography, but I had to share. To those of you who have heard of these before, you already know what I’m going to say. To the rest of you, try these now. I went to a new bar in town last weekend, and one of the menu... Continue Reading →
Lily and I have been talking about shooting for half a year. We finally found the time (and weather!) to squeeze in a quick test shoot. She’s an amazing photographer herself, so she was basically reading my mind while we wandered around this spot on a dirt road in Central Montana. We already have plans... Continue Reading →

Better late than never, right? I kinda knew I wanted to shoot this year's photos with the Canon M6, so I had to wait until I picked it up. But, we're off and running. Here's the obligatory self portrait, and 1 of 52. As always, the full gallery can be found at 52.daniel.photo. Let's get... Continue Reading →
When I moved back to Montana, I really only had one viable source for internet. It’s a local ISP, and it was awesome to be able to deal with real people face to face, rather than a call center far away. They didn’t have the best speeds, but it was enough to get work done.... Continue Reading →
In my 20s, I had one of those daily planner notebooks. If you’re over 40, you probably remember them—one page per day to jot down your tasks and appointments. It worked pretty well. Then I got my first Palm Pilot, and made the transition over to a digital task list. Palm Tungsten E Back then,... Continue Reading →
