I’m proud to announce the opening of my Storenvy shop! Here you can order prints of photos that I’ve made. Currently I only have 8x12 prints available to order, but expect to see more sizes in the near future!

And the final part of my West Coast Roadtrip photos!

These were taken off of Highway 84. The last two photos were taken in Idaho as the sun was setting, and directly east a huge thunderhead was starting to form up. With the way the sun was hitting the clouds, I knew that if I didn’t pull off and take some photos I would hate myself forever. 

All photos taken with a Canon 6D and a 24-105 f/4L lens.

Part five of my West Coast Roadtrip photos!

This post is made up of some duplicates, simply because they look great in b+w as well as color.

Part four of my West Coast Roadtrip photos!

Ironically enough, despite being the main reason why I went out there, I feel like I didn’t get anywhere near as many photos of the Oregon coastline as I had expected. That being said, I think this was mostly because I was driving slack-jawed down the road in awe at how gorgeous it was and forgot to pull over at a bunch of places that I’m sure would have made great photo stops. (Planning for next time, then!)

Seriously though, if you ever get the chance, drive down Oregon route 101. It is breathtaking.

Part three and a half! 

This is a minor break in the five-photo sets, because these two kind of mark the switch from Utah to Oregon. These were taken about 6-7 in the evening on Oregon Highway 20, and it was really something to see. 

Funny story - these photos cost me a light meter. I had mine out to use with my 4x5 camera, which I took some shots with here, and when I went to go back on the road, I pulled a photo equivalent of leaving your coffee cup on the rear bumper and my light meter fell off. It now lies forlorn somewhere on the side of this stretch of road, and I had to order a replacement when I got to the hotel. (It was an older model, so it’s not like I lost anything huge, but still…)

Both photos were taken with a Canon 6D and 24-105 f/4L lens.

Uploading Salt Lake/Oregon trip photos! So far these are all just digital photos, no 4x5 shots yet. I’m dropping the film off tomorrow so hopefully by next week I’ll have the negatives and can start scanning!

Most of the photos I’ll be uploading are HDR shots; this was my first time experimenting with HDR photography and I’m exceptionally pleased with the results.

All photos were taken with a Canon 6D and a 24-105 f/4L lens and edited in Adobe Lightroom 5. 

I’ll be uploading in batches of five; here’s part one, from down in Moab, Utah! 

(The little dude in the bottom photo is from what I can tell a common side-blotched lizard. It was very polite and held still for a decent bit while I got pretty close to take the photo!)

I’ve just returned from a 2 1/2 week long road trip cross-country! I’ve got a ton of photos to go through, but I decided to get a head start on them and get a couple up tonight as a preview of sorts. I’m really excited to see how they turn out - these are my first major forays into HDR photography, and I’m extremely pleased with how they seem to be turning out! 

Keep an eye on the blog over the next few weeks, as I’ll be steadily editing and uploading photos from the trip.

So, it’s been a long time since I’ve updated this blog, and while I’m planning on going on a major road trip in the next couple of weeks out west and hopefully be coming back with lots of new materiel for it, I figured I’d upload some interesting shots that I did back in 2012. These are all shot on Kodak TMax 400 speed 120 film, using a 1916 Kodak Brownie box camera that originally belonged to my great-grandmother and then my grandmother. 

I’ve always been pleased with how they’ve turned out. That little box camera is pretty astounding in what it can do. 

I didn’t add my watermark to these because it just detracted from the image.
