iPhone 13 Pro Max Macro Mode

I love macro photography. True marco 1:1 magnification (or greater) has been a long time favorite of mine for many years. The butterfly in this post was one such shot I took a while back with a Nikon 105mm Macro lens. When Apple announced the new iPhone 13 received a "close focus" lens i was…

A Photo Day at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

Delta Airlines on Arrival

Like most people in my surrounding area, I have been to this airport so many times, but most of the time it’s been rushed and hectic. I finally had a day planned to just go and do some photography in and around the airport. If you are new to this site or my photography, I…

That On Again Romance with Photography

One of the first pictures created was said to have been taken in 1838 by Louis Daguerre, which shows Boulevard du Temple, in Paris. Susan Sontag in her classic 1977 criticism On Photography said “to collect photographs is to collect the world,” and as a photographer I often ask myself, hasn’t the entire world been…

A Photographer’s 10 Year Journey From DSLR to iPhone

Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, 2016 With the pending announcement and release of the iPhone 8, or the iPhone Pro, iPhone X or whatever the new flagship iPhone is going to be called, the photography industry as a whole is once again going to be forced to advance to places it perhaps never considered 10 years…

How to Find the Best Photographic Vantage Point

Isn’t this an amazing time to be interested in photography. Whether you're a fan of the hype or not, the announcements of new tech are almost never ending.

M25 Mission Camp in Atlanta

There are several entries that have been sitting in my drafts for a while that I've trying to get posted, and this happens to be one of them. M25 Mission Camp is a youth missional organization in Atlanta that works with the homeless in a way I've rarely seen over the years. It wasn't the…

An Auburn Alley or Two

As of late I seem to be going from one day shooting thousands of images of an event to shooting almost nothing. Shooting nothing serious for days drives me nuts. But those are the times I try to get out of my comfort zone, slow down, and tackle subjects that have no deadlines, that interest…

The Rural Decay Photo Ops in the South

I have a few projects I'm kicking off on my blog and one of them is The Rural Decay Project. I've been interested in this topic for a while now, and have made some loose attempts at photographically capturing these images but until recently without much cohesiveness that one needs to tell a story. One…

Toomer’s Drugs and the Streets of Auburn

This week I finally had a few spare minutes to get downtown to take some street shots. I've been wanting to practice up on my black and white technique and revisit street photography for a long time but just never made time to do it. Auburn is generally a fantastic place for street photography for…

Don’t Include Power Lines in Your Photography

Since January I've spent a good bit of time reading and re-reading all of Eric Kim's books on street photography. There is so much practical real world advise in each one of his books that they are probably the few collection of books I've read multiple times. While we share different philosophies on life, we…
