Spring Cleaning (in the Fall.)

Happy Saturday to all! Hope you’ve all been able to survive the experience that is 2020 with a bit of equanimity. I’ve personally been in a minor slump over the past six months (like most of the World) and have willfully neglected to finish vetting and uploading my photos from this May past. However, today I am happy to announce that I finally dusted off my camera and cleared out the SD card *pats self on back.* The additions from May 2020 can be found in the Harford Album under the Gallery Link.

Fall is fully upon us and I am aspiring to capture some of my favorite locations painted in Fall colors- and am working towards uploading more frequently at least via Instagram if nothing else. Thank you as always for your kindness and support as I continue to add to this collection of short but sweet moments in nature. Stay safe, and remember to be kind to yourselves.

Springtime in HarCo.

Like most people these days, I’ve been less busy than usual lately, thanks in-part to the significant lack of structure that comes with a reduced work schedule (grateful to still be working/essential, though.) The good part is that I’ve had more time to devote towards experimenting with new recipes, studying for my Green Belt and capturing a little bit of beauty along the way.

This past week my mask, camera and I returned to the Ma & Pa trail in Bel Air, Maryland- this time venturing down the half that crosses over Winters Run. The weather was perfect (low 70’s) and despite having a few more people than usual on a weekday, it was still rather peaceful and certainly spacious and private enough to shoot without feeling like a spectacle! As good of a time as I had, this most recent “photo-expedition” has solidified my resolve to find some “Corona-friendly” subject matter outside of my locale, and to invest in a macro lens and a 70mm-300mm lens as well (pretty sure my wallet just cringed…)

I hope to have everything from this week uploaded by the end of the weekend; keep an eye on the Harford gallery for new content, and follow on Instagram for a sneak-peek and future updates. Hope you are staying positive, healthy and safe!

Hello and welcome to my latest adventure! As very few of you may know, I’ve been “officially” dabbling with photography more-and-more lately. I’ve always had an interest in fine arts in the past, but it wasn’t until I completed an academic photography course this past Fall that I came to have a real appreciation and passion for photography in-and-of-itself. ⁣
⁣While I am finally feeling brave enough to feature some of my favorite images and explore new paths, I’d like it to be clear that my style does not currently include portrait or event photography. As far as style or genre is concerned, I primarily shoot still-life, landscape, macro, and architectural scenery, and I’m also working on improving my long-exposure and astro-photography skills!⁣
⁣Please circle back for updates and feel free to take a peek at my Instagram as well. Thank you for all of the love and support!!⁣
