The magic lens.

The other day I was engaged in a conversation on Twitter with another photographer. What prompted the conversation was a tweet he’d written directed towards new photographers in the process of buying their first camera. In the tweet he suggested that when looking to buy their first camera, new photographers should forego the kit zoom… Read More

So. Much. Color!

When the White Mountains aren’t so white. It’s pretty obvious that when the early European settlers who arrived in New Hampshire first laid eyes on what are now known as the White Mountains, it wasn’t during the fall.

In his tweet he shared a link to his Instagram and a series of images he had made over the last 20 years. What was unique about these photographs was that all of the images had been made… Read More

Isolation Project, Day 6.
