Shooting in Hawaii

I have a lot of photos I’ve taken over the last 8 years that I’ve never shared anywhere. This has partly been due to a lack of a good library system, and partly due to not wanting to publish my favorite photos to someone else’s website. Lightroom1 has addressed the former, and as I’ve been writing more regularly here on my own website, I realized I had a solution to the latter.

My plan is to post the photos periodically, but in no particular order. I actually posted the first one a few weeks ago: Warning. Initially most of them will probably be shots that I’m happy with exactly as they came out of the camera with almost no post-processing. This is not because I have something against post-processing. It is because I don’t really know what I’m doing when it comes to post-processing, so if the photo didn’t look pretty good to me raw out of the camera, it probably didn’t get flagged to be shared. My hope is to learn more about post-processing and start to do some of that as well. I’ve already learned about correcting white-balance and I’m shooting in RAW to maximize the potential changes I can make.

Some of the photos might make for good desktop backgrounds so please feel free to send me a message on Facebook, Twitter, or via email if you’re interested in that. Also, I’m looking to improve, so if you have any feedback, please feel free to let me know that as well. Ultimately though I’m posting these for myself more than anyone else.

I want to spend more time creating and less time consuming.
