If you’ve spent any time in downtown Great Falls, you’ve probably seen Jenn and her laptop working on an article. She runs The Electric Great Falls, and she does a kick-ass job of reporting things that matter to Great Falls.
Flickr Back in 2005, I signed up for an account on Flickr. I wanted to be able to share albums of photos with friends and family, and Flickr did that incredibly well. https://danielhedrick.smugmug.com/Personal-Galleries/Oregon/n-FfWd2Q/i-q4XM3wJ/A Very first photo uploaded to Flickr Eventually, I started making photos public, and discovered the Flickr community.

I've been trying to come up with a metal-themed print for the wall of my buddy's office building. I shot trains, random abstract metal, and anything else I could think of, but none of them really impressed me. Then I realized it needed to be a portrait. Luckily, I have friends with kids who thought … Continue reading Metal Portraits with Mya and Kaylee

Now that summer is (more or less) here in the Pacific Northwest, I'm trying to get in as many fun photo sessions as possible. A few weekends ago, Kanchan joined Kayla, Ashlee, and I on a trip out to the Coast Range of Oregon for an afternoon shoot.

Even if you don’t blog, it’s fun to run back through the memories … Continue reading 2013: A year in review
Auto-upload I’ve posted before about the best ways to get photos from your iPhone to your computer if you don’t use iPhoto or Aperture. Dropbox’s auto-upload feature is still my favorite method of doing that. But what if I want to skip the computer altogether? I use the Flickr app’s auto-upload feature. Honestly, I can’t … Continue reading Flickr for iOS: Auto Upload
Three or four times a year, I assist with various company meetings around the country. I'm the AV guy and the photographer at these meetings, and even though it can be a lot of work, (and semi-stressful,) I love it. This week I'm in Scottsdale for a site visit--the actual meeting isn't for a couple … Continue reading TUESDAY TIPS: Evernote for Site Visits
I've been messing around with Google Chrome themes lately, so I thought I'd share. If you run the Chrome browser (and really, you should be,) feel free to use one of these themes. (If I remember correctly, you have to install the theming component from the Chrome store.) Flower Attitude View Hot Air Balloon Beer
