A Year in Pictures: 2019

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

52 Portraits

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, SmugMug, and WordPress

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

They're "good … Continue reading Neewer LED Lights

2018 in Photos

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

Think Tank Retrospective 7 / What’s In My Bag

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

Kayla and Coffee

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

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.
