Apparently all I needed was a firmware update to give me a little motivation to spend more time playing with my camera! Every couple of months, hang out on the couch and check out your settings, do another walk through the menu, and maybe even change up your custom buttons to better fit your shooting! When is the last time you truly went through the menu and explored every feature your camera had to offer??? Be honest lol

My little boy just turned 5 today!!! Anyone who has spent even a day with him knows he will gladly follow you on any adventure just to have another moment with you. Whether I’ve been gone an hour or a week, I always look forward to him running to the door the moment I walk in to give me a hug and announce to the world that “daddy’s home!” as if it was the best part of his day

I’m often guilty of junking a few images just because I wasn’t blown away with them out of camera. But sometimes a fresh edit can bring life to an image that otherwise would have been lost forever. This is one of those images that I found in my rejected images while cleaning up some storage! Threw it into @skylum_global Luminar 3 and went to work. What do you think of the end result??? Maybe a little editing time is all an image needs!

What’s the newest piece of gear on your desk? Buying and opening that new camera or lens can be an emotional experience for most of us and I got to witness it personally this week as my cousin hit that buy button on her dream lens. There have been SOOO many amazing gear announcements and killer sales these past few weeks, I’m willing to bet more than a few of you got to experience that unboxing moment!!! Let me know if you picked up something recently that really made a difference for you or maybe you are currently stalking the @bhphoto sales right now lol...guilty

Being a few feet from a crazy drop is probably about as risky as I'll ever get lol. Those of you who jump out of planes, dangle from ropes, and walk on the edge of buildings are absolutely crazy to a person like me and I'll just continue to admire and judge you from far away. Though I'm sure a few of you would gladly take me a bit closer to the edge! I am always amazed at how many risks photographers have to take to capture amazing images

For every one of these moments I get to spend out in these amazing scenes, capturing some awesome content, and testing out cool gear, there is usually a week (or two in this case!) spent in the office doing backups, building a new PC, painting walls, and spending way too much time assembling Ikea furniture lol. This has absolutely been one of those weeks for me and I know you can relate! POLL: how many of you got to spend the week doing something awesome and how many of you were project bound at home or in the office??? Either way the end result has been AMAZING and I have a ton of new stuff I am so crazy excited to share really soon!

What better way to celebrate #internationalwomensday than with an image of this amazing, strong, and absolutely talented woman who also happens to be my freaking awesome wife!!! @mrssallywatson, you are an inspiration to me in so many ways!

It’s absolutely crazy just how busy NYC is even late at night. Hand held at 1/10 sec thanks to that good old in body stabilization on my Sony A7III. And you know it’s good if I can pull off an image like this with my coffee infused hands!!!

Had to throw on my @polarpro quartzline ND and pull out the tripod for this! But it was all worth it for a 5 sec exposure of the last bit of light overlooking the Potomac River in DC.

BOKEH!!! Using some lights and snow to show off the extremely shallow DOF and compression from a lens like this 135mm 1.8. I absolutely love these longer focal lengths when you have the room. Still dreaming for a Sony 105mm F1.4 though!

First time shooting in the snow and it was absolutely EPIC!!! And in case you missed it, this is the intro from the newest video and you know how I love these! Everything was shot on the new Sony 135mm 1.8 GM with the A7RIII. Oh, and if you want to see what my camera looked like after just 5 minutes in the snow, check out my last image...which is why weather sealing is a must
