I've had other things on my mind the past few months, but I did manage to add a few portraits to the project last weekend. 11-16 are in the books now. As always, head over to 52.daniel.photo to see the full gallery, and get in touch if you're in Central Montana or Portland and want … Continue reading 52 Portraits Update
If you’ve spent any time in downtown Great Falls, you’ve probably seen Jenn and her laptop working on an article. She runs The Electric Great Falls, and she does a kick-ass job of reporting things that matter to Great Falls.
It's that time of year again. Breaking down a few stats from my Lightroom library to see what's what. I already know I took fewer photos this year--it's been a weird year for me photographically speaking. This is something I plan to change in 2020 Camera Use The first thing I always look at is … Continue reading A Year in Pictures: 2019
I've done the 52 week projects before. I've done the 365 projects. Most of the time, they were disappointing. I'd realize at the last moment that I hadn't shot a photo for the week or day and end up just grabbing some random emotionless shot to satisfy the requirements of the project. I'm not letting … Continue reading 52 Portraits

Eventually, I started making photos public, and discovered the Flickr community. I’ve had exactly one photo make it to Explore, and that was … Continue reading Flickr, SmugMug, and WordPress
I've always been a fan of constant lighting. Now that we can get LED light panels with adjustable color temperatures, I like it even more. I've been looking for some inexpensive LED panels for awhile, and of course Neewer came through. If you've never owned Neewer equipment, it's worth taking a look at. They're "good … Continue reading Neewer LED Lights
UPDATE 9/2019: The move from Squarespace to WordPress broke a few things. In this particular instance, the pretty graphs that Squarespace provides. I'm working on a solution, but until then, this post will not make a lot of sense. 🙂 It's that time of year again. Time to get geeky with the numbers from 2018. … Continue reading 2018 in Photos
I've had the Think Tank Retrospective 7 bag for over two years now, so I figured it was about time I wrote about it. Since I was taking pictures of the bag for this post, I decided I'd throw in the obligatory "What's in my bag" post, as well. My main problem with bags (other … Continue reading Think Tank Retrospective 7 / What’s In My Bag
I never have quite as much time as I'd like when I visit Portland. So instead of big shoots that require driving and setup and all that, we opted for something simple this time. Ava Roasteria has a great location in Progress Ridge next to a large pond. There are outdoor tables on the west … Continue reading Kayla and Coffee
The scaffolding is off the dome, and the light was outstanding tonight. New photos at the bottom of the project page.
