Weekly Wrap-Up: An Island Vacation

This week was pretty much a “week off” for me, as much as I’m ever “off” and still carrying my camera.  Marc took a week’s vacation this week, and since I wanted to enjoy this chance for us to have some quality time together, I pretty much wrote off getting anything done, work-wise.

It was nice to take a week off, even though I did manage to squeak in some processing of my shots from last weekend’s “Tank Farm” reenactment.  Marc and I went to Maryland’s Eastern Shore region on Tuesday, exploring Easton, Oxford, and Cambridge, as well as Assawoman  and Onancock (whose names still makes my inner 5 year old giggle).  On Wednesday we took a boat to Tangier Island, an extremely isolated island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay that is famous for its Restoration-era English accent.  We spent about four hours wandering around the island, exploring the sights and eating excellent seafood (order the soft-shell crab cakes!).  On Saturday, Marc and I took the car out Route 50 to explore part of Virginia’s “Hunt Country”, a region of fancypants horse farms punctuated by cute little historical towns.

You can see some of my photos from our trip to the Eastern Shore and Tangier Island here:


What do you want to see here?

Since this blog is by its very nature for my readers, it’s only natural that I should be asking you all what you want to see here.

Though I will be posting my photography here, the main purpose of this blog is to help educate other aspiring photographers, and to do that best, I need to know what you all need to know!

So, what kinds of things would you like to see here on the blog?  What sorts of tutorials?  What can I teach you that will help you most in your journey?  What sorts of questions would you like to see answered?

Let me know in the comments!


Welcome to Behind the Glass!

I’ve been meaning to get this blog up for quite awhile, but it seems that it was finally Tumblr, of all things, that has prompted me to get my butt in gear on having an actual photography blog.  After advising a few fellow Tumblrs on some photography-related topics, the cry went up for me to start a photography blog with an emphasis on advice and tutorials.

So, in addition to being where I post photos and projects I’m currently working on, this blog will contain photography advice, tutorials, how-tos, and even a members-only content section with more advanced, detailed tutorials and even downloads.  The member’s only section will be called “Ready, Set, Shoot” and will debut in a few weeks, so stay tuned!

I know that many of the readers of my other blogs really enjoy my photography work, so I hope that you all will enjoy this glimpse behind the lens! Read More »
