I was pretty tired today, but I really didn’t want to miss the golden hour. So, I headed over to my favorite park. As always, some are okay, some made me pleasantly surprised.

Also, I noticed a few black spot on the photos. I’ve never known how to clean a camera sensor but I think it’s time to learn.

I Won 2nd Place in the "Capturing Nacogdoches" Photography Contest!

The title pretty much says it all. The contest was hosted by the Nacogdoches CVB. Interestingly, I’m more proud of myself than I would’ve guessed. The $100 cash prize is nice too! ☺️

I look forward to competing next year.

It's been a long time since I've pursued photography, but I'm ready to pick it up again.

It's always interesting to come back to something, especially a hobby, and see how it's changed and how you've changed. One difference I've noticed is that I used to shoot JPGs. I was just using the built in photo editor on our Windows XP desktop, so RAWs were literally useless to me at the time. Now I shoot in JPG and RAW, and it's already making a big difference. If you look at the last couple of photos, you can see the ducks were fairly backlit, so I had to make some adjustments to correct the problem. I don't know that it was 100% successful, but it's an improvement.

Also, big shoutout to Grandma, Dan Dan, and Uncle Jim for gifting me a Nikon D60 when I was in high school! I'm sure I didn't write a thank you note, or even send photos, but it did make a big impact on my life.

Also also, note that one of the ducks is not like the others...(living)
