I have gotten into the habit of always having my camera with me since I never know what will inspire me.


I’ve been taking pictures for about eight years now and have recently discovered my passion for low light photography of course I will never give up my love for capturing sunrises and sunsets and almost anything interesting near or on a body of water.

As my skills have improved I’ve started applying HDR treatments to some of my captures not just for the effect but to have my composition more closely reflect the scene! I kicked off the New Year correctly this morning by graduating to the Manual program mode on my Rebel. I was very pleased with Firework show I captured for the most part.

New Years Fireworks 2008 033

A year and a half later I still enjoy capturing fireworks with my camera.

This has been a hectic year and I have been finding hard to get out with my cameras due to work but I'm hopeful I can strike the balance again.
