From the Sky

A few things have changed my life the last year. We moved to California, I began working from home, and for reasons I am still trying to fathom, I stopped writing this blog. Its not for lack of creative fodder, we've traveled more than we ever have, and captured more...

In my last post I mentioned Fireworks and it seemed like a good segway into this post. Fireworks are a budding photographer's real test. Its technically challenging and needs patience. With July 4th just around the corner it doesn't hurt to brush over the basics of...
