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
Flickr Back in 2005, I signed up for an account on Flickr. I wanted to be able to share albums of photos with friends and family, and Flickr did that incredibly well. https://danielhedrick.smugmug.com/Personal-Galleries/Oregon/n-FfWd2Q/i-q4XM3wJ/A Very first photo uploaded to Flickr Eventually, I started making photos public, and discovered the Flickr community. I’ve had exactly one photo … 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
Apparently I never wrote about switching from Canon to Sony?! Let's fix that. I got my first Canon back in 1988. It was an AE-1 and I loved it. I shot through rolls and rolls of film. I took a class from a photo place in town and shot school sports, portraits, wildlife, weather--anything I … Continue reading Alpha
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
The scaffolding is off the dome, and the light was outstanding tonight. New photos at the bottom of the project page.
Remember My buddy Steve from the courthouse aerial footage? He’s back again for the Signature MT Winter 2018 edition. Signature Montana is a quarterly magazine for Montanans, by Montanans. Landing a cover is awesome, but check out the article inside featuring a collection of Steve’s photos. Especially the old combine silhouetted against an impressive aurora … Continue reading Steve Wolff – Signature MT Magazine
I love data. And photographic data is the best kind. The Lightroom Dashboard gives photographers an awesome look into their Lightroom catalogs. So every year, I take a look at what I did the year before.
