Adding some color in post…changing the feel

I’ve been back and forth on this shot..open it, edit it, close it…then I come back another day and go through the same process. Often never finding a final option that I really enjoy. Removing the “normal” colors and going with an orange tone actually works for me. I’m sure on another day it may

Back to Africa…

I had the privilege of spending time with Crisis Aid International on my recent trip to East Africa. While it can be easy to dwell on the hopelessness and despair that are constant realities in this part of Africa, I didn’t want all of the photos I shared to only portray that part of life.

This is the final post in this series. You can click for Part 1  Part 2  and Part 3 I’ve written about Nick in the past.  Since we met via Twitter I thought it’d be appropriate to write and address if it was creepy or weird meeting someone via Twitter. Turns out in this case it wasn’t.

Change in altitude…Mountain bike photoshoot
