My 2021 In Photos
Wander: Richmond’s Forest Hill Park
I think it’s a good exercise to go through the year’s photos and flag the images that I think were my best. It’s a nice way to gauge progress over the year, and to see what worked best for me photographically. Also interesting to see my choice of gear and settings–of the 95 non-drone photos […]
Wander: Dutch Gap Conservation Area

Many of the photos I post here are HDR images–HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. In a nutshell, HDR combines several exposures of the same scene in order to give photographs more oomph, by making them more like what the human eye can see in terms of detail across a range of light levels. That’s […]
