I recently promised myself that I’d start shooting more video, so I went out and bought myself a DJI Osmo Pocket with the idea that I’d be able to shoot steady video with something that I could easily stash in my pocket. To that end, I put together this quick ambient film I shot last night at Erwin Park in McKinney, Texas.
To end the year, we made a video montage of every photo published on 75CentralPhotography in 2018. Thank you for a great year and best wishes in 2019. Enjoy!
Ten years ago, I started the 75Central.Com photoblog as a creative outlet to show my photography to the world. A lot has happened since that first photo went up on the Web on August 12, 2007. I met and married my wonderful wife. I adopted a dog. I’ve worked my way through five cars. I’ve been all over Texas, through the deserts of Nevada and California, to parts of Canada I’d never visited in the past, sailed to Alaska and the Caribbean, switched to Mac, partly switched back to Windows, loved and took care of my wife while she faced a life-changing illness, moved a couple of times, advanced both my photography and non-photography careers, made new friends, lost old friends and so much more. Most importantly, I learned to love life and not take it for granted. If an opportunity presents itself, take it. As I begin the second decade of sharing my work with the world, I want to take a moment to thank everyone who’s been a fan or a friend or just took a moment to admire on of my photos. It’s not always easy finding the motivation to select and post a photo every day, but I do it because I hope that at least one person appreciates it.
To celebrate this milestone anniversary, I put together the below video montage of every daily photo from the photoblog from the last ten years. Enjoy!
Here’s a nice ambient video of waves rolling onto a beach that I shot recently in Galveston, Texas, with a DJI Phantom drone.
I started photoblogging eight years ago today. That’s almost 3000 photos shared since I began on August 12, 2007. A lot has changed since then…I’ve gotten married, changed day jobs a couple of times, traveled a lot, got a dog, and countless other things. But one thing has stayed constant, and that’s that I’ve made sure to photograph my adventures and share the results every single day since I started. In celebration of this event, I’ve put together a short video that shows every single photo I’ve blogged since I started. It’s interesting to observe how much my technique and skills have changed while catching glimpses of Dallas, Las Vegas, Jamaica, Montreal, Alaska and all of the other many places I’ve had great times in since I started. Thank you for your support and I look forward to continuing to provide fine daily photos for your enjoyment for years to come.
