Solar Eclipse 2017

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Photography.

Last week I visited South Carolina to photograph the solar eclipse. In a word, it was: EPIC! The photos speak for themselves, but the process of capturing them is also exciting. My family planned the trip to Charleston about two months ago at which point I began seeking out tutorials for photographing the eclipse. I… Read more »

Rhode Island State House

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Bucket List, New England Outings, Photography, State Capitols.

Michelle and I spent Patriot’s Day 2017—it’s a Massachusetts thing—traveling to Providence, Rhode Island and Hartford, Connecticut to visit the state capitols there. I’m excited to present the Rhode Island photos, especially those of the rotunda! The rotunda photos are both HDR, and do a wonderful job of showing the details of the murals and… Read more »

Virginia State Capitol

Posted  by and filed under Blog, State Capitols.

Between work at edX and attempts to correct a messed up HDR panorama of the house chambers, it took way too long to publish these photos. However, here they are. I kinda want to return to Richmond to re-shoot these. I’m not happy with the rotunda shot, and I’d like to find a better vantage point to shoot the… Read more »

Pennsylvania State Capitol

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Bucket List, Photography, State Capitols.

I attended a conference Washington, D.C. about a month ago. Coincidently, I visited D.C. around the exact same dates last year. This time, however, I took a couple side trips to the Pennsylvania and Virginia state capitols in Harrisburg and Richmond, respectively. You may recall that one of the items on my bucket list is to visit all… Read more »

Loving

I saw the film Loving last month, and was inspired to recreate one of Grey Villet’s shots for LIFE. I also made a donation to the ACLU, which I encourage you to do, too. Enjoy!

State Capitols: Oregon and Washington

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Bucket List, Photography, State Capitols.

So…I took a trip to the Pacific Northwest, and completely forgot to post the photos! That trip was in May 2015! Nevertheless, here are photos of the two capitols I visited—Olympia, Washington and Salem, Oregon. Salem was unique because it marked my first viewing a legislative session.   Olympia, Washington Salem, Oregon

Lunar Eclipse + Supermoon

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Photography.

I have been an absentee blogger. As other aspects of my life have taken priority, photography has been pushed to the back burner. I still do a couple headshots each month; but, I’m not as active as I once was. Fortunately, that’s changing. I have a few projects in the works that I will share soon! However, before… Read more »

Prepping for the Lunar Eclipse and Supermoon

Posted  by and filed under Blog, Photography.

Sunday night will mark the first time in 33 years that a lunar eclipse will coincide with a supermoon. I’m hoping the sky isn’t so cloudy as to block the view of the moon. I enjoy astrophotography, although I don’t shoot enough to warrant buying a telescope and adapter. Getting such gear on short notice is pretty… Read more »
