Does a Roof Make the Home?
Growing up I used to think "home" was... seeing mom's smile in the pick up line after school... coming home to family talking about their day, watching TV, or redecorating with their latest house decor finds... a tidy and well kept space... a space that looked like the next Home & Garden magazine cover... family visits in a college dorm room... a roof to lay my head under at night...
Is This The Ultimate Restorative Yoga Video For Sleepy Glutes?
If you work behind a desk for more than 30 or 60 minutes a day, who doesn't? You might notice a limited range of movement available when you get up to do something else. For me this took the form of stiffness from the lower to the upper body. It felt like I was wrapped in shrink wrap 24/7. Not very efficient when you want to work well, sitting, standing, moving, and breathing with full breaths that nourish the body in the process - aka being upright.
The Computer Upgrade That Doesn't Always Cost A Thing
Yes, you read that title right but there is nothing to download here. Relieved yet? What I'm talking about is the computer that is inside all of us, our heart and brain that is like the motherboard that paves the way for us to do what we do everyday.
The Non-Verbal Observation That is Positively Changing My Life
They say history repeats itself until the lesson is learned. Have you ever looked through personal historic records like the baby book your mom assembled for you and realized there are lessons hidden just outside the frames of the cute and funny baby moments?
Infusing Visual Storytelling into Car Reviews
If you love cars, trucks, and overlanding on an open road you’ll love the story that I can’t wait to share about a vehicle that is staying true to its original purpose while keeping up with modern technological innovations!
Making Non-Judgement a mainstay in my Coziest Place
I love cozy corners you can settle into with a good book. I don't even mind the cleaning and tidying up, most of the time. The feeling you get when a space is cleaned out after spending weeks with it in disarray is like walking outside for a breath of fresh air after a rainstorm... But as wonderful as these outer world moments are, there is still something missing that feels in disarray (even after multiple rounds of cleaning or tidying). This brings me to one of my favorite cozy corners ever whether it's moving or reading...
2020: the rough draft for 2021
Dear 2021… It’s going to be a tough year to be a photographer. But not impossible. Thanks to one big lesson the chaos of 2020 illuminated, the lost art of preparation and vision setting. What used to feel like the only thing to take photos of were spontaneous moments of beautiful landscapes, dressed up portraits, or highly stylized food is now a distant memory in a digital album. I’ve learned that it’s not about the object in front of the camera as it is about what you use to shape the light that hits the narrow frame of space in front of the lens. While complying to social distancing I spent hours at home experimenting with lighting and later thinking about how the colors, angle, and composition affect not only the image but the viewer. Before 2020 this is something I sort of took for granted and didn’t spend much time learning to be intentional with. The more I photographed the less I wanted to review on the computer afterward because while the results always had certain areas I loved I could hardly put my finger on what was working or what was missing… But when I started to experiment with short video scenes and sketching out a storyboard beforehand I recognized that it helped improve my still photography and efficiency sorting and editing through them on the computer. This is one of, if not the biggest lesson I learned and always a win worth dancing to because who wants to spend all day hunched over a screen?
