Live, learn, shoot, share.
Hello. My name is Tyson and I take pictures. Sometimes for money, but mostly just because I love to.
Here are 6 random things about me:
•I enjoy cooking. A lot.
•I graduated from a hippie college with a degree in political and economic policy in international business, but I prefer to play music and take pictures. I still to this day have a hard time with patchouli.
•I am 6’5″ tall, and yes, I do play basketball despite having a recurring back injury sustained from a failed attempt at a hit beyond my ability while snowboarding when I was 17. It sucks.
•I have one “good” eye, and another that suffers from lasting effects from a surgery. Oddly, I’ve decided to follow a passion and potential career opportunities that require me to use my eyes constantly for meticulous adjustment as well as stare at a computer screen for hours on end. Go figure.
•My favorite Now and Later flavor is and has always been mystery mix.
I’d like to share a few things that I’ve figured out, or continue to learn from. Making the switch over to digital photography has opened up so many tools and abilities that were otherwise tedious or unavailable in days past. I hope that my experience can help, or at least helps you open up a few doors to help explore beyond your current boundaries.
I am a (fairly) new family man. My wife and I have just welcomed our second son into this world, may I introduce, A’la Mode. His big brother, aka Little Baby What’s His Face (LBWHF) has adjusted to the transition seamlessly and loves his new responsibilities that come with having a sibling. Needless to say, I’ve not slept much in the last couple years which, while exhausting, allows a little extra time at odd hours to research and write. Sadly, very little of that makes it to print so to speak as I’ve found, just because I’m awake doesn’t mean I should write. Makes for a good laugh the next day though.
Please stop in and say hello, ask a question or contribute some insight that I may have overlooked. Stay tuned as I will be adding content regularly. I want to eventually provide photographers young and old with a good series of references from fundamentals to more advanced lighting and post processing techniques all the while adding to my skill set as I go. This is a site to collectively learn from, myself included. I love photography and enjoy learning through shared experience. Hopefully I’m able to provide you with something you did not already know.
