My name is Ray,
Thanks for visiting my site.

“Get the shot and capture the moment.  Leave room to be creative, and be inspired by the results.  Learn from the experience, and refine your skills.  There are no limits… experiment, and take risks in trying something new.” 

This is my mindset when I do a photoshoot.  Before I picked up a camera, my interest was playing in Photoshop and Lightroom.   Did a few photo edits for friends, and started to realize how powerful these tools were in enhancing photographs.   My style is to get the shot, capture a moment, and with a little creativity in Lightroom and Photoshop, it can become something special.

My goal is to improve my craft and skills.  As I learn something new, I will try to blog and document what I did on the shoot, how I edited the photo, and what I’ve learned from the project.  Join me on this journey of photography and editing.
