I’ve been shooting with Nikon cameras for as long as I can remember. I know every curve, button and dial like it was an extension of my body. My current cameras, a pair of D800’s, have produced higher quality images than I ever imagined possible. They are rock solid performers and there is very little they can’t do. Why then, was I feeling restless to try something new?
The gloomy skies and heavy rain outside my window right now has me thinking of sunnier times. Here in Northwest Ohio, we’ve had some pretty amazing sunsets in recent weeks. I found myself occasionally pulling off the side of the road just to grab an image or two.
And now for something completely different. A few months ago I was talking with friend of mine who is also a photographer. We were discussing ways to get out of the rut that we all find ourselves in occasionally as photographers. A project to jump start our creativity and force us to get out and shoot. Without further ado, I give you the GOYR Photography Challenge.
I recently stumbled across a photographer, Patrick La Roque, that just completely captivated me. I loved the look of his images and his very simple, yet engaging style. I found myself going through blog post after blog post to find out more about this guy and his art. Just insanely good work.
I love fall. Probably my favorite time of year. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take a beach any day of the week, but there’s just something about the changing of the seasons here in Northwest Ohio.
