Hometown: Colorado Springs, CO
February 7, 2012
Photographically speaking, I started shooting in a serious way just in the past two years. I upgraded to a Nikon D7000 and a kit[masked]mm kit lens back in March, 2011 from my old Sony DSC-828, which I had for several years (and barely knew how to use in retrospect). I've recently upgraded to the Nikon D800 and FX lenses. I am constantly trying to expand my horizons for photos, which means I take some pretty lousy shots sometimes. Every once in awhile I switch back to my bread and butter (landscapes) to keep my self-esteeem intact... Of late, I have been experimenting with long exposures, portraits, smoke, reflections, depth of field, composites, texture-blending and other wild concepts.
