  • My Pentax ME is back from being overhauled!

    My Pentax ME is back from its CLA. It felt great to use, and it performed well.

  • Three ways to take better photographs when you’re tired and stressed

    We knew it would be crowded and loud and bright. We expected to be overwhelmed. Yet when we arrived there, we were disappointed. It was just giant televisions. And it was exhausting. You’ve seen vintage photos of Times Square, I’m sure: neon and incandescent signs lining Broadway, lighting the street as if it were daytime. Coca-Cola! […]

We spent most of our time on Monument Circle, the heart of our city. We both photographed plenty of Downtown’s architecture, but I also photographed people on the busy Circle. I shot my tiny Canon PowerShot S95.

  • Hiding in a crowd

    I have a deep desire to become good at street photography. But I’m such an introvert.
