Greetings. Thanks for visiting still harbor. Back in December 2005, I began thinking about starting a photoblog. My objective was to push myself to become a better photographer and fulfill my creative urges. I set down a personal challenge to shoot - shoot everyday (or as often as possible) and push myself creatively and technically so that the content is actually worth posting. I got the site up and running in January and posted the first image on January 28th. I just recently crossed the 50 image threshold. I must honestly say it has been a joy at times and a challenge at others... but never a burden. So far, I'm reasonably pleased with the images. I'm a bit surprised and quite pleased that I can detect a subtle improvement in the photography. The most dramatic change for me personally is the creativity I'm beginning to uncover in the post processing.
I live in the upper mid-west and work for an enterprise software company. I travel just about full time assisting customers around the world. At the age of six, my dad put a Voightlander ProminenT in my hands and spawned a lifelong interest in photography. I've shot mostly for fun and occasionally for money. I entered the digital darkroom world six or seven years ago and made the leap to shooting digital shortly afterwards. I still shoot film once in a while, but the digital body gets the lion share of the work today.
The images I post are what I humbly feel are worthy to be here. I hope you will find them interesting and maybe even inspiring, as I have found numerous other sites personally inspiring. I sincerely appreciate the time you might take to comment and critique.
It is my plan to evolve the site over time. I'm also experimenting with various web technologies in conjunction with the photography. As well, I plan to go back through the transparency archives and post select images from the analog days. As the content grows, the categories will as well.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to visit. I hope you find something interesting and will come back often.
