South Carolina – Sunset Photoshoot

On one of the first evenings in South Carolina, I was on the balcony of the hotel looking down the beach. The sun was setting inland and the beach in the far distance had that hazy orange light being cast over the blowing sand and shadowed hotels. I didn’t have the option to go out and shoot, but had two opportunities later in the week. The first evening I went out, I took my 6yr old son out with me. […]

It is probably a little of both, but I […]

First Nights in Ontario – Night Photoshoot

On a trip to Ontario with the kids, I really wanted to do some night photography. Landscape & Night Photography is where I really want to shine as a photographer. I had done a few tests with 2-3min exposures off my front balcony, but I really don’t have much of view and there is an orange hazy everywhere. On the first night in Ontario, I set up a lawn chair and my tripod and ran through a couple of 3-5min […]
