ShutoCon 2015 – after con report

April 18, 2015

Normally we go to ShutoCon as artists – selling our usual array of buttons. This year however due to conflicting schedules I missed out on alley registration and decided to just buy a normal badge. It’s been YEARS since we’ve hit a convention as regular run-of-the-mill attendees. I’m always either working a table or official press. So it was very weird and kind of lost-feeling to not have a “purpose” each day. I had a work commitment in the morning so couldn’t roll in until the afternoon. Lunch per usual was at El Azteco. It may not be the most…

Roaming Night Photography in Detroit

October 18, 2014

If you ask what the best way to get better at your craft is, no matter what the craft, you’ll hear ‘practice’. A photowalk is one of the best ways to do this as it often can take you out of your normal shooting area, introduce you to photographers with a variety of shooting skill levels and styles, and force you to think differently and quickly about what you’re capturing. There are a number of ways that a photowalk stands out above just walking around on your own and can make you a better photographer: You don’t want to get…

My Photography Workflow

August 13, 2014

I was talking with a friend about how so many sites focus on the stuff of photography and not as much on the process behind it, and it occurred to me that I’d never really written up how I go about processing my images from the memory card to final product. So, here it is. Let’s start with the camera. Hard to have photographs without one. If we want to go WAY back, my first personal camera I remember owning was a Vivtar 110 point and shoot. That was in the late 80’s, and it was sold only through Avon…

July 14, 2013

Grabbed a shot of this pup (a boxer I think?) as we walked around the city before the Detroit Ford Fireworks.  He was very well behaved considering all the activity going on and my camera/attention making him excited. This is one of the reasons I ADORE the live view on my camera.  It's something I didn't think I'd get much use from (I never wanted to be that person holding their camera a foot from their face to take the picture) but things like this – odd angles and perspectives – have added a level of creativity. #photography #detroit View post…

After Report – Penguicon 2013

May 3, 2013

Hold on to your keyboards folks, this one is going to be lengthy! I have ton of photos to share, along with summaries and thoughts on the convention and panels. So just what is Penguicon? First, let me tell you what it isn’t: it isn’t just one thing, one genre. I mention this because when I talked about Penguicon to friends I heard “Oh, but I don’t really know Linux.” Let me stop you guys right now, because it is WAY more than a Linux con. It is everything geeky, nerdy, open-source, Sci-Fi, and a bit of things in between.…

Project 52 B&W

April 7, 2013

Week 14: Transportation #P52BW13 | +Project 52 B&W Curated by +Tisha Craw , +David Bowden , & +Susan Porter A little late – as I've been in Lansing working a convention but here we go: As a means of getting something or someone from one place to another, rappelling down a building might not be the first choice when you think of types of transportation, but that's how this guy gets things done. Taken downtown Detroit from the roof of the Hockeytown Cafe.  While I could have just shot him as it was, I really liked the framing of the fence that was in…
