Colorado sunset, Best Camera #14

I find that springtime produces the most beautiful sunsets. And that Colorado is the best state for them, you can’t beat the Rocky Mountains for a more epic backdrop. Oh, and you can’t argue that God isn’t a huge fan of our state (orange and blue)!

It was extremely hot today, and very dry. So the evening set up a perfect scene for tired Coloradans across the state.




Best Camera #13

While traveling to Estes Park last weekend for a photo adventure , I whipped out my trusty iPod. It’s amazing the image quality that you can get out of mobile multi media devices these days.
Rumor has it the next iPhone will have a12mega pixel camera! Image that! What innovations will that bring about, no one knows.
Anyway, here are the shots that were captured. I especially love the one of the dog sitting in front of the restaurant we ate breakfast at! It’s very fitting seeing that the name is the barking dog!





Best camera #11


I have recently been reading about several different styles of photography, and even moving pictures (cinematography).

But my favorites have been between Henri Cartier Bresson and Ansel Adams. Both photographers have very unique styles; one street photos, the other landscapes. The both are very inspiring. Just like this sunset, I saw after exiting the public library.

Enjoy and always remember to stay inspired, and constantly perfect your craft every second that you can.

The Best Camera Challenge #10

It has been a while since I uploaded some photos from my faithful little Ipod. I have been exploring a lot of various tools for capturing images, mainly sticking to more technical devices ( analog and digital slr’s). I find that they are easier to rely on, especially when a split second is all that matters. So whenever I find myself in pickle and in need of camera I turn to old faithful(ipod). So here are a few that I have captured, spur of the moment and edited after the fact. Enjoy!


Best camera day 8

Snow snow and more snow! It was another bone chilling day, with spurts of snow showers and wild winds.
Though the weather was dreary, I made the best of it by getting my hair trimmed, in preparation for tomorrow’s job interview. I’m ecstatic, and ready to give her all I got.
Tomorrow’s plans aside I snapped a few shots of today’s chilly atmosphere. I was hopping to capture the warmth of inside, contrasted to the icy weather outdoors. Enjoy!

-the apps I use to edit my iPod photos are; snapseed, camera+, wood camera, and my favorite slow shutter camera.
Snapseed is strictly a dumbed down version of photoshop for free. While slow shutter allows one to leave the shutter open for extended periods of time. With this app, light paintings and long exposures are only a snap away.




Belated day 7 of the best camera.

So the weather out here has be oh so frightful, but my bloggers the fire was so delightful(cheesy, yes I know). The snow was pounding Denver all weekend long. I was feeling very lethargic, and caught up on some great movie relaxation time.
Therefore I have only one photo to show you all.
This is a strobes photo of my new baby, a Konica auto reflex tc. A beautiful analog SLR , that I picked up from my favorite coworker. I love this new toy and got it for an unbelievable price more on that later.


The Best Camera Challenge: day 5

I woke today to find a good Six inches of fresh powder coating everything outside. If only I didn’t have work, would be able to enjoy the serene silence.
If you have never experienced snow, let me tell you… Your missing out in something great. Snow is natures white out. It covers all the garbage, and provides a wonderful calm.

Well as calm as snow is, it can also be a real nuisance for those of us in the rat race. So today most if my pics are of my morning drive, and a nice warm reward for my hard labor.




The Best Camera Challenge: day three.

So today was very long, overcast and chilly. I felt very unmotivated to shoot today. Probably a combination of cruddy weather, poor lighting, and overall fatigue. Well I still got out there and snapped a few on the good ol iPod . I find that shooting in b&w on overcast days is the best way for success.

Oh , forgot to add, it is snowing like crazy here in Colorado. I’m loving it.

Best Camera Challenge: Day 2


So after a hellacious day at work, a photo-walk was in desperate need. The thing that I love about photography is the opportunity to meet interesting people.

Badass Biker

I met this shady character when I turned into boding alley. At first I was nervous approaching this badass dude, but he turned out to be really nice. After a friendly introduction I asked him if I could take a photo of him. To much of my surprise he said yes and proceeded to look as serious as possible. To cool, way to cool.


Moving on I explored every  corner hoping to find some inspiration. I ran across some graffiti in both spray paint form and typography (pictured first). I couldn’t pass up this raw adulterated art slapped on the ragged walls.

Rising to the Challange 

My journey ended at the St. Anne’s Catholic Church as the sun began to set. Legs tired and body achy, I took a moment to relax and rejuvenate the wary spirit. One word sums up this trip:Inspirational



-All these photos were shot and edited on the 4th generation Ipod touch.

-If anyone would like to know what apps I use to edit this photos, just leave a comment/like and I’ll write a post about it.
