A Little About My Photography
My name is Jeremy and I enjoy taking a few photographs here and there. I prefer landscapes and other things in their natural settings, but I am learning a bit more about other aspects of photography, especially with taking photos of people. I have a Nikon D5200 (recently replaced a Nikon D80) and a few different Nikkor lenses that I have been using for a while, and it is an awesome camera, although I’m learning more about it all the time. Most of the photos on here are from this camera or my previous D80, but I’ve also got a bunch from my older digital camera and old 35mm camera that are great as well.
The main reason I started this photo-blog is because I had a photo website with more than 2000 photos (http://japgar.zoto.com – this site somewhat-mysteriously shut down and some linked photos in earlier entries are still missing on this blog…I’m working on updating all of them), and I figured a great way to showcase them would be to pick one a day to put on this site. I changed to a much better photo service at SmugMug (http://japgar.smugmug.com), so check out all the photos there. I’ll be adding a lot more photos to my SmugMug site, including older photos, so that collection will only grow. I try to mix up the photos as much as possible and add a little bit of background or interesting things, so I hope you enjoy the variety!
Since starting this site 6 years ago (11.15.2008 was my first entry), a lot has certainly changed in my life. Starting in 2012, I had a bit of difficulty posting a new photo every single day with both a new home and a pregnant wife, and there were multiple stretches of more than a couple weeks where I wasn’t able to post any photos. By the time 2013 rolled along and our son Nolan was born, I completely fell off the bandwagon! Time I might have spent picking a photo to post and write about was spent changing diapers or sleeping… By January 2014, I hadn’t posted anything in 9 months and I attempted to get back into regular monthly or weekly postings, but even that just didn’t happen. So now it is November 2014, and I’m giving it another go-around…the upshot of having not posted much of anything over the past 2 years is I definitely have plenty of great photos to share!
Anyway, thanks for coming to the site, and be sure to check back often for a new photo (just bookmark the main page or check out the Email Subscription feature found at the bottom of the page), and get on my case if you don’t see a new photo in a while! Any comments are greatly appreciated!
