I’ve always been intimidated to write drum parts, but now I’ve been growing much more comfortable with it. Usually I write guitar first and then add drums, but this time I went with the other route. I sat…

Understanding Light – A free guide to empower your photography.

This is something I’ve been wanting to create and share for a while. Since I was asked to lead a small photo workshop recently, I figured it was a good time to make it happen.

Aimed toward beginners, this guide is a quick and easy look at basic facts about light and how you can use different types of light sources to change your images.It’s not super in depth, but just enough to get your cogs…

My first photography workshop - Showing others the way.

My first photography workshop – Showing others the way.

Recently I was asked to do candid and open ended photography workshop for folks at my church for this saturday.

I’m a bit nervous, but I think my excitement to show others how I work and the ways I have learned from others is invigorating to me.

This is a joy that I encourage you to seek when at all possible. I know it can be hard to give up your free time to help others,…

Organizing your life.

While chaos is beautiful and can bring great creativity into your life, so can an organized space.

It’s been a work in progress for me that I’ve been thoroughly enjoying in my life. One step at a time lets you feel things out and make each next step a better one.

What one thing in your life could be more organized? I bet you’ll love the change.

Looking for it.

I haven’t been shooting many photos lately.

It’s almost like I’ve lost my groove.

Then again I’ve been investing time in other things. You can only give to do much in a day.

What do you choose to invest in?

Why? Is it worth the investment?
