Since starting this blog in early January, much of my focus has been on writing; often sharing old stories, and with those, old photos. While that’s provided a great opportunity and the extra push needed to start writing again, I never meant for this to turn exclusively into an ongoing memoir. I also want to use this as a forum for sharing and gaining feedback on my developing work as a photographer. While I’ve been taking pictures all my life and have begun selling my work with professional aspirations, I am also the first to admit I am still learning and trying hard to improve. I’ve actually only been shooting with a DSLR for a little over a year, and while I am starting to see progress, I also realize there’s plenty of room to grow.
With that in mind, I’ve been anxious to get some new images out there (in this case, new means never before shown) and just kind of try to get a sense of what people think. What’s working, what’s not, that sort of thing. And with a little spare time these past few days, I’ve actually had the chance to go back and sort through some photos taken last fall. I’ll start with a few from an October trip to northern Wisconsin, and share some from California in a later post. Have a look, and please feel free to leave comments if anything catches your eye.
Additional photos from this shoot can be found in the “Northwoods to SoCal” album on my facebook page, linked at the top of the menu column to the right. There you can comment on individual images, view albums with samples of previous work, and if you choose to follow the page by hitting the “LIKE” button, you will receive updates on new blog posts, show appearances, and montly drawings.
