Here's Beaux in San Francisco last summer - I look back on that trip with a big Beaux smile. 

 I think good photography is kind of like what my dad said about good writing - if it's only about one thing, (i.e. here's a photo of a thing), it's not really about anything. So I hope my photos of faces also get across a bit of the individual's personality - hopefully what I like about him or her - or the time I took the picture. No pressure. I know a lot of these photos are merely a photo of the thing in the photo, but I hope at least one or two show more than that.

Close-ups of Objects

I used a fixed lens, i.e. no zoom, and I highly recommend it. I sacrificed some technical abilities, because there are certain things I just can't really do the way I want or the way that would be the easiest, but in turn I've gained in confidence and creativity, because I have to find new ways to do things.  

Close-ups can be hard with my camera, so whenever some come out remotely well I'm really happy. Here are some of them.

Art Jamz

Art Jamz = painting + wine-ing. Perfect combo. Karen and I went in to do pictures (photographs) for her new website.
