This image is pretty special to me. I (Shane) shot it about a year and a half ago when I was going through a deeply painful bout with anxiety/depression. Photography was a good therapy for me during that time. I am very thankful to no longer be in the place I was when I took this photo. But, odd as it may sound, I’m also so thankful for the experience. I’m much better for it. (Plus, I took several photos I still like during that time smile emoticon Oh, by the way, this is one shot. No composite Long exposure + strobe.
I went on a photowalk in downtown Fargo a couple of Sunday’s ago. Here are some of the photos I captured during the shoot. See tons more of my photos from in and around Fargo on my website PicturesOfFargo.com.
I’ve launched a new photo website with the self-explanatory title “Pictures of Fargo.” It’s a website containing … well … pictures of Fargo and the surrounding area. Here are some examples.

I’ve always had great beard follicles (I mean, not as a baby … so, not always, I guess). My facial hair comes in dark and thick. But, up to this point, I’ve just gone with some thin manscaping. That’s all changing. Today I have made the life-altering decision to grow a real truck-driving, lumber-jacking, old-school beard! I’ll be posting regular updates on my progress right here on my blog. Below is a picture from this morning — Day #1.
Japanese lens-maker Tamron has announced a zoom lens covering a whopping 16-300mm! (You can order it at Adorama.) Tamron is producing the unit for Nikon, Canon, and Sony, Maxxum cameras. Aperature range for the lens is f3.5-6.3 (minimum range is f22-40).
I’m curious to see a review or two on this product to get a feel for what the performance is like. I don’t see one on DP Review yet, but I assume there will be one there soon. You can read the company’s press release about the product here.
This winter in Fargo was brutal! So if you hear anyone complaining about it being too hot at any point this spring, here’s what to do. (If you can’t hear the audio click the Speaker symbol in the upper righthand corner of the video)
This photobomb by my friend Jeff Meyer is so amazing, that I’m jealous. I can only tip my hat to it’s awesomeness. It happened at Bowl for Kids’ Sake, an event that benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters in Fargo-Moorhead. Enjoy!
