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 interfaceContinue reading “Lightroom Classic”

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 FollowContinue reading “My favorite moments from 2022”

Close up

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 agoContinue reading “Close up”

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 neckContinue reading “Single frame: Jeff Dworek at 2022 Battle of Huck’s Defeat”

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 pullsContinue reading “Single frame: Rusty Robinson at 2022 Battle of Huck’s Defeat”

Monroe Art Walk 2022

My friend Michael Hutchinson has started displaying his photography in the Dowd Center Theatre in Monroe, North Carolina. On the second day of a month’s-long gallery show at the theatre, I went up in the afternoon to support him. I met him outside after he had just finished a hot dog he had bought fromContinue reading “Monroe Art Walk 2022”
