I have so many entrepreneurial friends, as well as running my own photography business (our prints and books make great holiday gifts, guys!) so obviously I urge you to spend some time supporting local businesses this holiday season. #shopsmall #smallbusinesssaturday

If you run a small business – photography, musician, candles, bags, stationary, crocheting, whatever – leave your link below so people can find you.  Let’s do our part to support each other’s dreams this year.🙂

 

For those of you who made it this far down the post, the photo above was taken in the Schoodic Peninsula portion of Acadia National Park.  It’s a simple focus stack, converted to black & white, edited with Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Colorefex.

Exactly one month ago, I drove up to Maine to find some fall colors. This scene, along the Jessup trail in Acadia, really spoke to me. There was so much chaos and transition and texture…it felt like it was telling a story of the passing of the seasons….all I had to do was capture it.🙂

Sometimes, to make a photo outing work with the conditions you’re given, you have to think outside of the box a bit.  I hit the road thinking I’d create a wide-angle landscape shot and ended up striking gold with this intimate landscape instead.

Last month our students focused on minimalism, so the idea of simplifying has been on my mind. This particular sunset, the sky was sort’ve “blah” but the reflecting color was so damn purty.❤
