2015 Photo Project – August In Review

In July my wife and I were able to take a much needed vacation for our first anniversary, and we decided to go to Colorado for a little over a week. It was absolutely incredible! Colorado probably has the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen, and we did a lot of hiking where we were able to enjoy it. So far, most of these are some of my favorite images I’ve captured this year so far in this photo project.

2015 Photo Project – June In Review

This month I only had one good opportunity to take photos, and it was at a CrossFit competition that my wife and many of my friends were competing in.  I was not competing this year, plus I had injured my back the day before so it was a good thing I wasn’t competing!  I played my part in encouraging the teams where I knew people, and I was able to snap a few photos in the process.  Below are my favorite photos form the day.

By the way, if you have a camera and walk around confidently, most people will let you be anywhere you want and events like these!

2015 Photo Project – April In Review

I’m not as happy with my photos in April as I have been in the past, and it’s because I waited until the very last minute to take them. My wife and I were in the process of moving, and I realized around 9pm on the last day of April that hadn’t yet taken any photos! So, I grabbed my early used extension tube to give my camera a poor-man’s macro lens and shot some macro photos of keys and my iPhone.

They actually came out pretty good, but I wish I had used my month better.  Now we are moved, and I found a group of local photographers here that go out and shoot pretty regularly.  I hope to get plugged in with them soon.
