Info on the paynage

Howdy the names Aaron, and this is my attempt at taking a photo a day and posting it here for everyone to see starting january 1st 2010. I know, I know it’s not original.

UPDATE: Ok, so I'm not getting one out everyday anymore. But hey at least I'm still working at it!

Bit about me and my life of creating images... I’ve been taking photos well back into the days of film. I’ve spent a couple years shooting only black and white and developing in the dark room and loved it. Fast forwarding to the days of the pixel I’ve since abondoned film and have gone all digital (Sorry film! I will always love you, I’ve been seduced by the instant gradification).

Recently I’ve been becoming obsessed with studio and strobist lighting.

cooking on a wood stove

Cooking on a wood stove is great. Makes food taste really good because it takes forever, so by the time it's ready you are starving.

Up at the cabin this weekend. This photo was a 30 second exposure.

I get so excited about studio lighting! Go beauty dish! Here's a quick photo I took just playing around with stuff.

studio photography setup

Here's some photography equipment porn for you. I'm pretty happy with the new seamless background system. Haven't tried the 10 foot backgrounds yet!

Hokey Croquis Travel pad

Did a photoshoot today with my new seamless backdrop setup. The product is a Fashion Sketch Pad by Hokey Croquis and is awesome.

After a year of watching my hair grow I figured it was time to cut it all off. Feels Awesome!

camping in our VW

Went out in the woods this weekend with the VW and the wife for our 1st anniversary. Good times.

paint by number

This is a painting that's been valued to be 540 grand and painted by Rudolph De'wurst the 3rd, and had been in our family for 40 years... Ok, so it's actually a paint by number that my grandma made years ago. Had you going though huh?! Makes you kind of question the value of an art piece.

Good view of some mountains in the Olympics... with some funky post processing.
