I have launched a website in which my prints can be purchased. I hope you check it out and let me know what you think!
Below are all of the pictures available on the website at the moment. HOWEVER, if you are from DeviantArt (which you are if you are reading this, lol) I will take requests for prints of almost every photo in my gallery.

New photos will be added to the website regularly.

I've seen countless amazing purple/peach/pink sunsets in my 25 years on this planet. Their beauty, to me, rivals that of the Aurora Borealis.  They cannot be described in words, but only through a photo.  I just watched one of these amazing sunsets from my yard at my house.  Never have I captured one of them on camera. Someday I will.

That is all.

Hope everyone is doing well, to anyone who might even be reading this.

just wanted to apologize to the people who view my photographs for not posting in awhile.  I got a bunch of new camera equipment and I can't wait to use it.  I guess I don't have much to say other than I will still be posting new photos at some point, so keep an eye out! :)

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 31, 2011, 10:56 AM


ok i just hit 10,000 pageviews.  not as excited or as cool as i thought itd be, no explosions or cakes or alien invasions or anything...but anyways, if you want to be featured just leave a comment on this journal, say anything at all! :D  i'll feature somewhere between 5-10 people maybe more depending on how many comments i get on the journal.  but the more people i feature the smaller amount of deviations per person will be featured! K GO and thanks for enjoying my photos!!!

=========================================================================

for some reason i've been in a funk lately with photography, havent had much motivation, dont know why. that will change though i promise.  i've been skateboarding a lot lately which i was unable to do all winter so that may be part of the reason, its been hovering around 40 degrees the last two weeks and i've been lovin it.  thanks again see ya'll later!

56 degrees!

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 16, 2011, 9:01 PM


I went out shooting today and for the first time in a looong time i actually had feeling in my fingers for more than 10 minutes! :D  thank you 50 degree weather!  no more frostbite.  it feels so good to be able to take your camera out, sit at a spot and be able to reeellaaaxx.  in the winter i feel like i am constantly rushing to get out of the cold, but i love spring, i can just sit back relax and take everything in. :)


i also discovered a new spot for a sunset type photo.  i uploaded a pic from this spot, but i got there late cuz i was still in winter picture taking mode, but im going back tomorrow and im going to get there real early and just reeellaaaxxx in my t-shirt and hopefully come out with a top notch photo!

*******************************************************************************

im also considering updating this shot to a 3.0 version  i originally shot this photo about 2 years ago with a nikon d70, the version you see now i did about a year after that with my nikon d90 hence version 2.0, and since i just got a nikon D7000 i am considering doing a version 3.0 of this shot...which would be much better, but this shot requires aaa lllooott of work and i think im too lazy at the moment to do it...what do you think?!

10,000 pageview feature/other random things.

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 3, 2011, 5:58 PM


when i hit 10,000 pageviews i will do a feature for the first 5 people to comment the journal.  i will update 1 or 2 more times as i get closer to 10,000, there will be more details as well.  I dont really care so much about the 10,000 views, although i am glad that it shows people are enjoying (hopefully) my photos, but rather its just an excuse to do something nice and interactive, so watch out for 10,000!!!
____________________________________________________________________________________

im pretty satisfied with my most recent pictures i have captured.   I absolutely love the Nikon D7000 and would recommend it to anybody!  best camera i have ever touched.  when i got this camera i kinda looked at it as a representation of a new era for me as a photographer, a new chapter of progression, and i believe i am headed down that road, nowhere near where I hope to get.  i've got a lot more to learn and experience in order to reach my ultimate goal, i am excited to see where i end up on this journey.

i've been goin out this weekend on some nice sunny days testing out my new filter kit on some sunsets, friday was more of a test day, today i may have gotten some nice shots...i really hope so but im still getting used to exposures using a GND filter.  i MIGHT have photoshop on my computer tomorrow (speaking of which, i got my laptop back and its fixed nicely, but unfortunately everything remained on my compute) but if i do end up getting photoshop tomorrow, i may upload a picture or two for the first time in months! (it feels like).  friday it was 15°F and today i was taking pictures in 8°F weather, i cannot wait till winter passes!!!!

i dont know why, but i feel like updating journals a lot more frequently, so please feel free to leave comments if you find it necessary haha, if not thats cool too, it just feels good to write shit down and this isnt normally the type of thing i like to do so thats why im gonna do it!  i also just feel like talking to people, SO LETS GET IT!

ok so my laptop has been broken for several months, nothing major.  Some water damage on the keyboard and screen, two separate and clumsy incidents.  after dreading to pay $800 to have it fixed I finally took my laptop into the apple store anyway to have it looked at.  I was honest and straight forward with the guy and told him the keyboard suffered a little water damage, and after inspection he agreed and to my surprise, offered to have it fixed FOR FREE.  apparently because i was honest about the problems.  I really thought nothing of being honest, it wasnt like i had planned to lie, and telling the truth was my back up plan.  but to me this shows that a lot of people must lie in order to have their things fixed for free (water damage and abuse is not covered).  In the past i would have been like most of those people, but honestly, telling the truth really does pay off, in some circumstances.  and this really puts into perspective how much people lie and try to get away with things.  I didnt expect to be rewarded for my honesty, and it wasnt some scheme to try and get something for free, but it had great rewards, over something so miniscule, its not like i was trying to get away with murder...although i probably could have.

"honestly, telling the truth really does pay off"
-steve carmickle-

anyways, all this means is that my picture taking has been delayed another 5-10 days.  and when i do get my laptop back, i need to find a way to get photoshop CS5 for free now too!!! haha.  During the repairing prcess there is a "50/50" chance i will lose everything i put on the computer...and i hope i DO lose everything too!  i will have a brand new computer all over again! i win...ok bye.

so everyone go check out Biozz www.biozz.deviantart.com/ and add him to your DevWatch.  he helped me resolve an issue with my D7000...which brings me to why i am retarded.  the problem was easily resolved by merely turning a dial about 1 millimeter to the left.   so to this point, the problem appears to be solved, and the photo shooting will commence ASAP.


but there is still a problem, i shoot primarily in RAW format, but CS4 is not recognizing RAW photos from my D7000. i read the only way to solve this is get CS5...but hopefully there is something i can do to change this and get my RAW photos up and goin!
anyone have solutions?

1. everything looks "blurry" or "soft" through the viewfinder when trying to focus.  i can make things really out of focus to just a little bit out of focus, can never get anything to look sharp through the viewfinder, but it seems to be better in the actual picture i take.  very odd, could be my eyes...

2.  photoshop is not recognizing my RAW files...
going to get my D7000 right now! finally!


...thats all...

I dont have a camera....and its a good thing?

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 27, 2010, 2:14 PM


ok so i guess i had 600 dollars just laying around...i knew i had some money laying around but when i counted it, it was 600 dollars!  thought it would be about 200.  sooo i came up with the great idea to just go to the camera store and see how much i could trade in my camera for...i got 350 dollars...not too bad for a trade in and more than i expected to get.  im getting some more money for watching my friends dogs this week and that'll get me rreeeaaalll close to 1200 dollars...   NIKON D7000 HERE I COME!  after i traded in my camera i placed an order for a D7000 body only, i have some nice lenses already waiting for it.  AAANNNDDD i bought a GND filter kit, it was just a cheap cokin kit but for the filter, holder, and adapter ring it only cost 35 dollars!!!  had to do it... so to summarize, FUCK YEAH!

i'll be without a camera for anywhere between a week to a month, hopefully no longer than a month, so for those of you who actually like and look at my pictures, i will not be uploading for awhile, but im going to come back better than ever when i do!  watch out!

i got a couple digital photography books recently, i guess i'll fill my time by reading them, hopefully learn something in the process.
