Lesson #2: Balance

Balancing photos is an essential part of composition. Often in photography forums people ask what’s the best camera to get for the best photos. Or ask for critique on photos that were taken with top of the line equipment. When people talk to me about my photos they’ll ask me what kind of camera I…

Kennedy Space Center

On the last weekend in January, Jorge and I went to the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL. He had never been there, and I think I had been one time when I was like 11. Being the nerds that we are, we decided to visit before leaving Florida for good. It was a…

Chinatown, LA and Solvang, CA

On Christmas Day, we went to Chinatown. It was quite empty. Had late lunch at the most delicious ramen place in Little Tokyo, then walked around Chinatown and had dinner. The next day, the extended family went to Solvang, CA. The drive up the Pacific Coast Highway was amazing.

The Ringling

Living in Sarasota, you can’t not go to the Ringling Museum of Art. It has a great history and beautiful landscape. They have free admission on Mondays to anyone, so we went! Charlotte and Paige, my cousins, were staying with my parents at the time. And after much convincing, my brother Nate came too. I…
