Three weeks sounds like a long time. It isn't. In September, I traveled to Portland for my buddy's wedding and my daughter's birthday. I had grand plans to see a lot of people, but after three weeks, there were still a handful of people I didn't have time to visit. I'll catch them next time. … Continue reading 17-26/52

Group photo walks rock. This is the first time I've done one at night, though. I left my tripod in the car, so high ISOs and a wide aperture were required. If you're looking for an excuse to go shoot, find a group of people and organize a photo walk. Not only is it more … Continue reading Night-time Photo Walk
