Art I’ve Been Making

March Was All About the Art Show

  I spent pretty much all of March working on something I’d be willing to show in an art gallery, because that’s what was going on in March. My friends are crafty, artsy people. We like to get together, but we also like to feel intellectual while...

Pop-Up Sessions in February

Spring started in February, and I was itching to get outside. I made a trip out to Annapolis on my own one afternoon to simply shoot whatever. It was fun interacting with the random people on the street, and I quickly got into a “pop-up session” groove....

Infinitely Looping Video Clips in January

  January was a lot of things. “productive”, “comfortable” and “optimistic”, didn’t describe any of them. However, “busy”, “distracting”, and “motivating” were somewhere on the list. After taking a break from the monthly project in December, I wanted to get onto...

The Art I Puked Up in 2016

2016 was a difficult year. This was the first time in my life that politics had any kind of real emotional impact.  It was also the first time in my life that I nailed down some bad habits that have haunted me forever. So it was a mixed bag, but personally, a net...

Taking to the Skies in November

A drone is a purchase I’ve been dancing around for the better part of a year now, and in November, I decided to take the plunge. My interest in drones is twofold. First, as a photographer I crave new vantage points and new ways to capture the images in my head. From...

I Spent October Shooting My First Roll of Film in 15 Years

I’ve been a professional photographer for about 10 years. I’m sorry, I should clarify, I’ve been a professional digital photographer for about 10 years. Maybe going on 12 years now. I’m losing track.  Before I was a photographer, I was a kid with a variety of cameras....

No Vacations in September, Except This Rendition of One

This has been a tough one. This post comes reluctantly, with a plethora of second guesses. My commitment to myself is to invest energy every month in an art project and post it when the clock says it’s done. I’ve posted some somewhat incomplete projects in the past....

Editing Ryan & Leah’s Engagement Video in August

  August was an incredibly busy month for me, and September is shaping up to be even more intense. Hence this post coming almost halfway through September. Nevertheless, I’ve committed myself to working on and publishing something creatively challenging...

Holding Out For a Hero in July

July was a fun month for artwork. Around July 2nd or 3rd, I started working on a cover of a song I’ve long thought would be fun to do: Holding Out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler. The original is over-the-top enthusiastic about itself in all of the right ways, so...
