    Graveyard after Wedding

    Before working more on TJ and Jess’ wedding I took a break to work up some images I took after the wedding. These images are from a beautiful graveyard located next to Hale Farm and Village.

    Holga Reincarnation on a Canon

    Courtesy of my friend Cameron Davidson I have acquired a Holga lens in a Canon Lens mount (he sent it to me in exchange for the Community Coalition for Haiti which he supports).

    This post is the culmination of six months worth of research, experimentation, and refinement into high-magnification macro photography. Taking pictures of extremely small objects with extremely high resolution systems is an incredibly technical endeavor with great challenges and even greater rewards.

    Whitsundays: Underwater Plants

    To rest after chasing fish around, I tried to document the amazing variety of plants (and plant-like animals) that lay along the ocean floor.

    Whitsundays: Underwater Animals

    When you watch documentaries about the Great Barrier Reef there are fish everywhere. Schools of fish crash together and brightly colored fish hide behind every corner. It was perhaps my greatest surprise that the Great Barrier Reef was exactly like in documentaries. Here is just a sampling of the fish that stayed still long enough…
