an ongoing process

A photographer's education never ends. There're always more techniques to know and improve upon... more to learn. The images in this site capture a multitude of subject matter I consider interesting. Many of the images were taken while trying new techniques or working at master old ones. From general photography to specific topics, the camera settings and maybe something specific about the shots are provided for those interesed.

The last five images in the gallery on this page are my first attempt at creating "eerie" photos which require throwing some of the rules of "proper" photography out the window. Note the excessive noise from high ISO and lack of leveling the camera (pitch and roll axes) which results in vertical lines appearing as though they will converge at some point in space. The images did turn out looking somewhat eerie. And if you look close enough, two of the them have someone, or something, staring out of a window. Of course, I had nothing to do with that. :)
