  • Beautiful cold sunset

    Sunset was beautiful this cold 49°F evening

  • Lightroom Classic

    I’ve been having a disconnect between the storage of my photographs and the editing process for several months. I’ve used Affinity Photo for the longest time and creating individual files for each edit. Somehow I happened on Lightroom Classic (LrC) after trying numerous other tools and this time around something was different with the interface […]

  • My favorite moments from 2022

    Here’s a selection of mostly unedited photos from different events over the course of this year. This year I developed an interest in the Fujifilm X100S camera and in living history photography. I took several trips to see reenactments, friends, and family. I’ve posted more of these on Instagram. Find that link on the Follow […]

  • Air Ride

    I was passing through an intersection heading towards Peak, South Carolina, with two other photographers when we looked up and saw this across the road. Pulled this Sony raw image into the RNI Films app and applied their vintage film preset, Kodachrome Generic v.6, followed by some light editing. It’s on Instagram too.

    My perspective on photography has started to shift. When I first started in photography with a Sony a6000 in 2015, I was drawn to that camera by sunsets and eventually made many time-lapses. Abandoned buildings and rusted cars drew my attention for the next several years and new friends as a result. A year ago […]

  • SOOC: 2022 The Battle of Charlotte

    On Saturday, September 3, 2022, I visited Rural Hill in Huntersville, North Carolina, to see the reenactment of this year’s Battle of Charlotte. Tickets were purchased online in advance. The day was mostly cloudy with lots of heat (88–91ºF) from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. I dropped the exposure on my camera because of the […]

    Single frame: Jeff Dworek at 2022 Battle of Huck’s Defeat

    Jeff Dworek sat on a scissor stool handmade by a mutual friend, hands clasping a tin cup filled with cold water. It was 104ºF that day, and Jeff was trying to stay cool in his thick Revolutionary War clothing at Historic Brattonsville in McConnells, South Carolina. He had a soaked towel wrapped around his neck […]

  • Single frame: Rusty Robinson at 2022 Battle of Huck’s Defeat

    Rusty Robinson was standing behind a wooden workbench in a cabin at Brattonsville when I walked in. Two small doors and a gap behind the bench dimly lit the cabin. A young man was engaging Rusty in a conversation while I stood off to the side in the shadows to take pictures. Here he pulls […]

    Single frame: Sunset in Wesley Chapel

    A friend and I went to an amateur radio club meeting and after it was over we both saw this beautiful sunset outside. I happened to have my Fujifilm X100S and this is a straight out of camera shot. Sunset in Wesley Chapel
