You’re Worried About the Bear, but…

Have you ever been so afraid of trying that every time you think about just going for it, you choke?  Like, you have these ideas swirling around in your head, every waking moment.  You diligently jot them down.  You promise yourself you’re going to act.  You even plan it out, set a schedule, and plug…

The Most Inspirational Post You Will Ever Read (but not really)

You know what I’ve discovered in the past few months? Love. I’m not talking about the love between a man and a woman. I’m not talking about the love a parent has for a child.  I’m not even talking about the love good people have for the whole of humanity. I’m talking about the love…

So, I’m Really Excited about Lightroom CC…

Good morning everyone! I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to the weekend.  Then again, I probably don’t have to because many of you are looking forward to the same weekend.  And I’m being wordy for no reason. I want to share something with you.  I’ve learned over the past week that a…

Love taking pictures?  Don’t want to lose them?  Read This

Hey all!  So I decided it might be a great idea to incorporate how-tos into my blog.  Why?  Because I have a wealth of knowledge, courtesy of my familiarity with the digital world, telecom, and various OS’s.  For my day job, I work as a tech support rep for a major telecom.  What I’ve learned…

Monochrome Madness: OKC Womb Gallery

Hey everyone. If you’re like me, you sometimes feel like you’re running low on inspiration. We all have these things–responsibilities, demands on our time, plots to discover and unleash the anti-life equation, which is not what its name suggests–that take our heads out of the game, distracting us from our passions and our goals.

SEO and You (or Working at Owning the Internet)

How you going, everybody? Okay, so in no way, shape, or form do I intend this site to have any kind of focus mastering traffic building, search engine optimization (SEO), or the importance of community building (even though learning about all of those things would definitely be beneficial to you).  I mean, this blog is…

Structure and the Beauty of Decay

You know what relaxes me? Decay. How is it possible to be so titillated by the dilapidation of man-made structures?  I don’t know.  The best answer I could give is that the inexorable wearing of structures sets my mind on mortality, and how things ultimately end.  In the right light, in the wrong light, decay…

Doing Black and White Photography

How goes it, friends? You ever get the impression that some things you might really love are kind of underrated?  That seems to be the way with black and white photography. Every week to two weeks from this point, I’m going to work at sharpening my black and white skills, just as I am with…

Macro Photography: ‘A’ is for Alarm Clock

How you going? So macro photography (or closeup photography) has always been one of my favorite forms of photography. While it’s a lot of work, the end product is usually pretty spectacular, depending on what you’re shooting. My problem today is, with my current camera kit (which consists of a Nikon D3400 and two lenses),…

Escape of the Inner Self

Hi, all! Alright, so one of my favorite bloggers, whom I’ve been following for years, is this photographer by the name of Leanne Cole. While I’ve been around these parts a lot less frequently than I used to be, her blog has continued to be one that inspires me. Recently, I saw a post where…

Welcome to My Object Affection!

Hi, all! Call me Ry.  I wanted to introduce myself, since I’ve decided to take this blog seriously.  I won’t go into too much about myself here (feel free to check out my bio here).  I’m a photographer, currently living in Oklahoma City.  How I ended up here, who knows?  Probably had something to do…
