Testing a New Camera

January 18, 2011

The last two posts represent some of the first photos I’ve taken with the new Nikon D7000, Nikon’s newest DSLR. I’ll be shooting The Other Fredericksburg with this camera from now on, with the hopes that the additional Megapixels will lead to some gorgeous wall-sized prints in the near future. I’m in the beginning phases of shopping around for a gallery show in Fredericksburg…so stay tuned!

On The Grid

January 9, 2011

While down at the river, Geoff and I were trying to capture some light trails of the cars coming down Fall Hill Ave. No such luck, so I started looking around for something else to shoot. Glad I did. This is one of my favorites of the project so far. I think it’s got a kinda surreal graphic quality to it.

The River

January 7, 2011

I’ve been meaning to get a shot of the river for some time now, so I called Geoff up and convinced him to trek down to the river with me in the freezing cold, in the middle of the night. It actually wasn’t that hard of a sell, to be honest. Right up Geoff’s proverbial ally. I didn’t want to shoot the river as it’s traditionally shot: picturesque, gorgeous late evening light, idyllic. I hoped to tell a different story, a quieter story, if that makes sense. I’d love to wax philosophical about the importance of the river to a community like Fredericksburg, but you’re here for the pictures, right? Thanks for stopping by!

Took a photowalk in the rain testing out a new lens. Happy New Year!
