Thursday I left with my Dad for South Dakota. We traveled to a total of 5 states in 3 days. It was a lot of fun to spend that time with my Dad. He took me to the town of Sisseton, South Dakota. The population is a little over 2500 people. It was pretty cool to see where he came from. It was a fast, cold and long trip but I enjoyed it. Here are some of my favorite images from the drive up and back. They are a mix of camera and iPhone images editid with VSCO Film.
This is the house my dad grew up in with 8 brothers and sisters.

I've added 2 new prints to my store from Singer Island, Florida. They both are 24x16 printed on a matte fine art paper. Contact me if you would like a different size.

I finally finished my first attempt at creating a handmade portfollio. I got the idea from Chris Crisman's blog. There is a lot that goes into creating a book from scratch. I am pretty happy with this first book eventhough it's not perfect. I learned several things and the next one will hopefully be better. This one has a soft cover and the next one I will attempt to make a hard cover wrapped in fabric and have more pages.

A few weeks ago I printed a set of nine prints from my iPhone. I wanted to see how they would hold up when printed. I read that you can get a solid print up to 8x8. I tested these at 4x4. I used a few different apps to edit them and I couldn't be happier. This is going to be a lot of fun printing iPhone and Instagram photos.

I have been wanting to convert my site into a responsive site so that it works on computers and mobile devices. I have been working on it between projects and I finally got it finished. I am pretty happy with it. I tweaked the design a bit too. Creating a responsive design is pretty easy. I used a pre built framework called Skeleton and Fitvids for scaling YouTube and Vimeo Videos. To see it in action just resize your browser if you are on your computer. Hope you all like the new version of my site.

I am a big fan of blurry/abstract images. A while back, I picked up about 50-60 old 49mm filters and some old cameras from a friend of mine. When I was going through the filters, I found a few close up filters. I started to expirement with them. It's pretty cool what effect you can get with the filters without using Photoshop or a multiple exposure. These images were processed in Lightroom only. This is my first test and I'm pretty sure I want to try this effect on some abstract portraits. The teqnique is simple. I used a 50mm lens on a Canon 5D Mark III and then held the close up filter in front of the lens on the camera, then I moved it around until the image had the blur/abstract effect I wanted.
