1 year with 500px +41,000 Views

I am very happy to announce that I have been with 500px for one year now and am loving it. I've uploaded 310 photos so far with many more to come this year, Stay Tuned for photos from Washington DC, The Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and more! In this first year I have received over 41,000 views, 2,600 Likes and 780 Favs! I recommend 500px to any art and travel photographer.

composition in mind

I have always found it the most difficult to photograph the city I live in. I become so accustomed to the sights, the happenings and the little things; without practice my photographic eye can easily become disillusioned in a subconscious effort to normalize my surroundings. I must be a travel photographer at heart because now that I've lived in DC for 10 months I can see that my best photos were taken in the two times I visited last year! Sometimes the beauty that surrounds you becomes a background. I have to work to push my mind to see my surroundings like I would through a lens: always in context and always with composition in mind.
