Street Photos

It’s been a bit since my last post again. I’ve been pretty busy, and not much to say about it really. I did get a new gallery posted, though, which you may have already noticed. It’s a gallery of some curated street photos I’ve taken here in Minneapolis. These photos are mostly a few years old now, as most of the street photography I’ve done since has been on my smartphone and posted straight to Instagram on my “Streets of Minneapolis” account, which you can check out here. I really do need to get out on the streets with a proper camera again, though, as I enjoyed going through these images, and the quality is definitely a bit higher than what I get on my phone, even with phone cameras being as good as they are these days.

Anyway, the slideshow should be playing at the top of this post, but to get a better look at this full gallery, click here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Updating and backlog...

Upper Falls on the Brule River in Judge C.R. Magney State Park in Northern MN

I'm finally getting around to updating my image content in the photo galleries.  I realized just recently that I hadn't updated the website in some time, even as I've processed and posted images to other image hosting sites I use (Flickr, Instagram, 500px, etc.).  If you look now, you'll already see some new images posted in the galleries, and I'll be posting some more over the next few days.

I've also come to realize that I really have quite a backlog of photos to edit.  I've been kind of down on myself lately for not getting out for proper photo outings nearly enough, but honestly, with all the photos I still haven't edited from various trips over the past 5 years, I could probably be busy with my existing stock of unedited photos for some time.  For instance, I only had one new (edited) photo to drop in my Nightscapes gallery right now, but I also have folders of images from night photo outings back in 2013 and 2014 that I still haven't touched to date!  I really need to get on it! :)

Anyway, just checking in, as I haven't blogged in a while again, and just wanted to let you know to keep checking the galleries, as they are finally getting updated with some fresh content.

Galleries slowly growing...

Hey All,

Hope you're doing well out there in Internet Land...  I'm slowly, but surely, expanding the gallery content on the site.  If you were already familiar with my professional photography site, much of the content will look familiar, but there is some new content here, especially all the Minnesota stuff.  The Colorado landscape gallery I'm adding to more slowly, as I'm trying to be very judicious about what I add, filtering out old works that I no longer feel pass muster. We all grow as artists as we go along, and what might have seemed great a couple years ago can now leave us scratching our heads, wondering how we ever thought a particular work(s) was worthy of publishing.  So it goes...  So anyway, I'm working at culling pretty hard as I move that gallery over here.  I have added some new images, though, as well as new images in the Cityscapes gallery (including one from my days back in Colorado Springs that I really like).  I've also added the Nightscapes gallery, which I hope you'll enjoy.  Hopefully I'll be able to make some fresh images for that gallery this coming Spring/Summer, as I'm kinda anxious to get out to some dark skies areas (outside the city) again and do some Milky Way shooting.  I've also got some night images in my files from the past couple of years that I haven't even processed yet, so will try to get some of those done soon, too.

Beyond that, I'm planning to get a couple/few more galleries up in the coming weeks that showcase my portrait and conceptual work.  Stay tuned for those to show up over the next week or two.

Anyway, just checking in and updating you all on progress of site.  I hope you're all doing well.

 

Cheers,

Ryan
