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.

How to shoot urban landscape

I personally love empty car parks, empty shops, empty streets. It’s like the world was struck by an apocalypse and nobody is on earth, only a human being with a camera.

SEO and You (or Working at Owning the Internet)

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 about photography, not an appeal to the apathy many of us feel when reading about how to become the next Perez Hilton (though, are any of us going to argue that we don’t really want at least a six figure monthly income?).

That said, I do like to share things that I’ve learned over the years.  Disclaimer: I am not a marketing professional, so don’t just take me at my word on any of this.  The keyword today is RESEARCH. (more…)

Structure and the Beauty of Decay

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 is a beautiful thing, and endings can be a good thing.

The Daily Post’s Photo Challenge for this week is to share a photograph of something that is deeply loved.

Doing Black and White Photography

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.  I think this will end up being a pretty exciting adventure, especially after getting to see the end results.

My Love Affair with Photography

My Love Affair with Photography

I didn’t always want to be a photographer.

When I was seventeen, and realizing that I was going to be entering into the US Air Force, I took the ASVAB and passed with a high enough score that I qualified to train in any career the Air Force had available for non-commissioned enlistees. I’d always had an affinity for the arts, so imagine my surprise when I discover the US Air Force had graphic designers. (more…)

Macro Photography: ‘A’ is for Alarm Clock

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), I don’t have a macro lens. Turns out that macros are terribly expensive, and I’m a broke artist on a pretty much non-existent budget.
