It’s Website Time!!

It’s official! After a couple of years of knowing that I should set up an actual website for my photography, I have finally done it. is up and running. It’s still in the baby stages right now, as I add photo galleries from this year’s events and fine-tune exactly how I’m going to run the site on a day-to-day basis. I would love to have you stop by and see what I have done so far. Hopefully this will be a next step towards my world-wide takeover of the motorsports world!

And here’s a photo that I took last night of the amazing lightning storm that we were having 🙂

Lightning Storm

Tonight was an amazing lightning storm around town. Naturally I got out my camera and went for a little drive. Naturally, as well, the lightning portion of the storm peaked just as I was in the car driving to my favorite overlook. I managed to expose a few frames before the downpour and hail started. Back at home I went out to the back field to see if I could catch some more lightning before the storm rolled out of town. I didn’t capture very much lightning, but the storm was really cool anyway.

Lightning, Finally!

A few years ago I got the chance to photograph my very first lightning storm. Not my first time seeing one, of course, but the first time I had a camera capable of taking pictures of such an event. I was happy with the results, for a first try. My old camera didn’t have manual focus and the auto-focus didn’t particularly like focusing at night. So I ended up with a few cool pictures and several more that would have been cool if they had been anywhere close to focused.

Enter: New Camera! Since I got my new T2i back in June, I have been waiting for a good storm to come up at night so I could try my hand at lightning pictures again. Friday night was just such a night! The spot I picked was a little more lit up than it should have been and I learned a few other little things for next time, but all in all I’m pretty stoked that I got to go out lightning shooting again!
