Changes

Hello, everyone!

As y’all might have noticed, things have been pretty quiet around here and my Facebook Page lately.  Life has been busy, priorities are shifting, and things are changing.

I’ve decided to take a break from updating my photography website and Facebook Page.  I will still continue doing photography (and will still be available for hire, *hint hint*) but I would rather expend my energy honing my craft than by trying to keep up with the past-faced business and self-marketing side of things.  There are also other areas of my life I would like to focus on.  Like I said, priorities are shifting.

You will still be able to access this website.  Feel free to browse the galleries and my Facebook Page to see some of my past work.  (I might update my galleries occasionally, so keep an eye out.)  Also, don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in scheduling a photo shoot, purchasing prints, commissioning a project, etc..

Thank you everyone for all of the love and support you’ve given me so freely.  It has meant so much to me.  I hope to see y’all here again someday.  :)

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial

As I said in a previous post, we had some family visit over Thanksgiving and we took them to the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, also known as the St. Louis Arch.  I’ve been there several times before but this was my first time back since purchasing my new lens earlier this year.  I was really looking forward to photographing the memorial grounds in ways I hadn’t thought of before.  When you’re a photographer it seems like over time your “eye” (how you envision a photograph before you take it) becomes less conventional and starts to see things in a more creative light.  Or at least that’s what my photographer eye has been doing.

Self-portrait 35

Not really much context to this photo, but I do love the perspective and depth of field.  Have I said recently how much I enjoy going all the way down to 1.4 with my 50mm lens?  It’s pretty spectacular.  And this isn’t even all the way to 1.4!  This is only 3.5 but the focusing is still so beautiful.  :)
