Welcoming the Fall

The weather’s changin’ and the leaves will soon follow suit. Here are a few photos taken here and there to celebrate the coming change. Click on each for the larger version! This photograph was taken at ┬áMaymont Park in Richmond, Virginia, though it seems as if it could have been taken from the other side of the globe. Maymont is a 100-acre property that is open to the public and is incredibly beautiful. There are multiple personalities to the property […]

Point of Rocks, MF Style

My new favorite way to spend time alone is to throw my medium format gear into the car and drive until I figure out where I want to be. The next time you find yourself at home with nothing to do (or even worse… spending your time doing nothing worthwhile!) consider going for a drive with a camera. It is surprisingly liberating and I promise that you will rediscover your sense of adventure. Point of Rocks is a beautiful and […]

Annandale Community Park

As many of you may know, I have been doing a good amount of my time lately working on personal projects. On Monday I challenged myself to go out with a single roll of 120 for thirty minutes and to come back happy with all ten exposures. I went to Annandale Community Park in Annandale, Virginia. I chose this park because of its heavy tree cover, the direction of the sun in the afternoon, and because of its size. Though […]

Burke Lake, Medium Format

A few weeks ago I finally decided to indulge and buy a medium format kit. After careful consideration I decided to go with a Mamiya RB67 SD-Pro. With its rotating back, workhorse status, and inexpensive lenses this body really, truly delivers. I have spent a lot of my personal time walking and shooting in Burke Lake Park – it’s calm and peaceful and there are rarely any people who will question or interrupt you. Here are some images, scanned with […]

Fountainhead Regional Park

Marisa and I have been hiking every week for the past two months or so. It’s a great way to exercise, relieve stress, enjoy nature, bond, and find photo-ops! It is simply amazing the things you’d miss if you didn’t take the time to look around.

Photos in the Park :)

Went to Lake Accotink with Marisa today – all images straight OOC except for a bit of touch-up, WB and dodge/burn on the third one (a reflector would’ve helped!). It’s always humbling to find yourself in perfect natural light. Comparing the amount of money and time we spend on lighting equipment and the effortless way in which nature works really puts things into perspective.

DC Street Walk

Went into D.C. with my friend Jade and ended up having quite the journey. When we arrived at the Lincoln Memorial we found ourselves in the front row of a concert commemorating the 65th anniversary of Elbe Day, featuring members of the USMC Band and members of the Russian military band and choir. After the concert we made our way through the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Korean War Veterans Memorial. Ended up eating at Zed’s in D.C. After all […]
