Triptych Photography 101

SC Boneyard

In photography, there are lots of crazy semantics to understand!  Everything from ISO’s and apertures, to shutters, diopters and f-stops, ASA’s and guide numbers are all part of the craft.  Heck, there’s even one called the “circle of confusion” – and you can quickly get lost in the sea of words and acronyms in photography. One that I can’t believe I’ve not talked about here before is a triptych!  It’s pretty simple actually when you break it down really though, so fear not.  Here’s your beginner’s guide to triptych photography!

New Family Member

It’s with a certain bit of trepidation that I make this next announcement on the blog.  As you know, I have been somewhat blase for the last 9 months or so.  I think a good portion of my mental attitude is attributed to the loss of our beloved pet of a dozen years.  Her eulogy is here.

With the melancholy having been predominant, we’ve finally decided that this is not how Maggie would have wanted us to continue on, so we are going to welcome a new family member here soon.  A name has not been picked out yet (suggestions are welcome), but I do have a pic.  Here’s our next family member!

Fox Red Lab

The next year or so will be challenging with accidents, yipping, chewing, and other traumas I am sure. But it really is time to step into a new chapter here.  It also likely means that this dog will be quite famous over the next 12 years as she will undoubtedly make several appearances here.  I’ll try to keep things as photographically relevant as possible!

The Final Push

Living Room

Very exciting news in my little corner of the globe as we’ve finally closed escrow on our new digs!  It happened Friday, so naturally Saturday and Sunday were spent college-style, huddled around boxes and crates eating take-out while we move our grips into the house.  I’ve now done 3 moves since starting this website:

1.  South Carolina to Colorado

2.  Colorado to Ohio apartment

3.  Ohio apartment to Ohio house

Now, some of you may not count the apartment, but when there’s physical exertion involved, I count it and there was substantial sweat equity this last weekend to complete our portion of Phase 3!  Now, granted, we are still sleeping on an air mattress since the remainder of our stuff is in storage (due in this coming weekend where I play the role of supervisor rather than the manual labor for a change!), but I count us as moved in.  Nothing amazing photographically to speak of here, just a few documentary photos to share the experience, lest ye all think I’ve forgotten photography!
