Laurie used to help me with testing light, years ago and later hired me to document her nuptials with Jason. So, it’s an honor that they asked that I document their growing family. Here’s a glimpse . . .
If you’ve been keeping track, I lost Lightroom edits a couple of years ago which means I lost all of the manipulations short of retouching on all of my workup until that point. And as I’ve only had access to the massive archive of imagery I’ve accumulated since I switched over to digital (entirely late-summer of 2003), I’ve been spending days in-between client work catching up on all of those lost photo edits (nearly 300k!). This is mostly a good thing as I can imagine the work with “present-day” tools; images are all the better for it. I bring this up as, in my attempt to catch the social media train when it’s already left the station, that I’ve found a voice in my work. And I’m seeing where I’ve been more clearly than ever. Not to mention, I’m discovering imagery I passed on before; anything worth remembering goes into my wallpaper folder (which switches out every minute). Eventually, I’ll put together a few books of imagery for publication.
Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae). They’re feeding now, and so close to shore. Amazing. Recent shots:
