What’s the best decision you’ve ever made?

I asked this question of my Facebook friends last week. I got a variety of different answers, from finding their partner, to starting a project, going to a new place, to believing in a religion. At the beginning of 2019 I set the intention of creating more connection. I had always told myself the story that I was socially awkward and just “not good” at socializing. My relationship with my…

Hey Stranger~ I’ve been traveling a lot. I’ve been exploring, thinking, and brainstorming. I have been taking photos, but not as much.

Why you should care about composition.

You could have the best light, the best models, and the best location…and all of that would be for naught if you didn’t know how to compose the shot. So, what is composition? Composition is simply, how you choose to capture the scene you are photographing, and in what way. Everything you do when capturing an image, effects the mood and, in turn, the story you are telling with that…
