A couple different takes on a shot I took at the Trinity College Library while visiting Dublin in October. This shot of “The Long Room” is a wide angle image of the library with a Laowa 15mm f/2 lens with multiple brackets and processed the HDR in On1 Photo Raw. I’ve been working on this […]

Last fall I spent about a week in Lisbon, Portugal on business. While walking around to and from the office my camera never left my hand. There was so much to see and shoot, but I had a limited time and caught what I could. Mostly, I walked aimlessly around the city at night, and […]

Earlier this week someone contacted me on Instagram to purchase this photo I took at Bear Creek Falls in White Haven, Pennsylvania in 2018. While the Instagram image was fine, I did need to adjust it for printing. To be honest, it wasn’t one of my favorite shots from this location, but after reworking it […]

Last fall I took a trip to Dublin, Ireland and spent a day in Book Heaven – Trinity College Library. While there, I visited the Book of Kells exhibit. Unfortunately (but understandably) the library did not allow photography inside the exhibit at all. After spending some time in the exhibit, I ended up hanging out […]

Rejiggering the site (a.k.a. virtual house cleaning 101). Now that I’ve gone and changed a ton of crap on the website, go the start of an online shop going for my photos, and did it all without pulling out my hair, it is about time that I go through the hard parts of this process… […]

Going through some shots I took over the past year or so and realizing a few things. Firstly holy hell I took a metric crap-ton of photos, and secondly, I really have progressed a lot in my photography skills. I have always been a good hack, but I am impressed that I have improved so […]

So, first of all, Happy New Year! I took a fairly long break from blogging in 2019 … it was a hellacious year for me personally and professionally. Lets just leave it at that. I was quite bored with the old theme, the layout, the hassle of keeping it functional, and it completely turned me […]

So, its been a bit crazy work-wise so I haven’t had a lot of time to post anything as of late. I did manage to upgrade WordPress to 5.1 and trying out the new Gutenberg editor as I put this post together. The one thing I’ve found ways to find time for is photography and […]

London Calling?  In October I had a business trip over to London to attend the Payment Card Industry Community Meeting as well as a visit to our European HQ offices. While there was a ton of work to do in the ten days I spent there, I did have a number of opportunities to get out […]
