It has been said that the state motto of Montana could be, "If you don't like the weather, wait a minute." I took some photos which show just how variable our weather can be - even on a mild fall day....more

Film Photography - San Antonio

The Alamo - That's what most people think of when they hear San Antonio, but did you know there are four other historic missions within about a 9 mile radius? The missions, apart from The Alamo, are part of a National Historical Park worthy of a trip. They are not only less crowded, but much more interesting in my opinion.

3 Ways to Improve Your DSLR Photography

I learned a few things right off the bat in my time with Loretta. (That's my camera's name, after Loretta Lynn.) I thought I'd share, so you can enter into DSLR World with a head full of knowledge! It can be rough, turning on the camera for the first time, seeing all those buttons and thinking, but I just wanna take photos! ...more
