Every day in my house starts out with my morning cup of joe. It’s what gets me going. I’ll typically drink my coffee (always iced) while the kids sleep in or watch cartoons. The dogs just kind of hang around, waiting for someone to drop some food or open the door.

11 questions with photographer Bob Weil

11 questions with photographer Bob Weil

During a business trip to St. Petersburg, Russia in Winter 2010, I found that I used my iPhone camera more often than my conventional DSLR to take pictures. I proceeded to edit several of them on the phone during the trip, and was impressed with what I could do with the few apps I had at hand. I realized that mobile had become a legitimate platform for image capture and editing – but had still not attracted serious attention from the media or the arts world. I was validated in my thinking when one of the photos I took during the trip won an IPPA iPhone Photographer of the Year Award in 2013.

4 creative ways to add impact when taking photos outside

At the start of this year, my family and I began taking hikes every weekend as a means to get more exercise, spend more time together, and just explore.

The exploring part is what excites me the most, photography-wise. I love not knowing what to expect because it means less planning. I’m not one for scouting locations and planning an entire photo session around it. More often than not, my family and I would do our hikes in the afternoons. It’s not the most ideal time for photography but that time is the most convenient for my family so I go with the flow. But that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve interesting images. The lighting might not be optimal, but there are other techniques that I look for to make my images intriguing such as perspective and scaling, framing, textures, and just experimenting.

Hi guys! Here’s a quick peek into our crazy life! When I took this DITL, our youngest wasn’t even two weeks old yet. So things were a bit more crazy than usual. And it was one of the dreariest days so far this fall, so my usual light filled home was a complete cave! I’m not a fan of the dark and gloomy winters! Anyways, here’s a look at a “typical” day as we figure out life with 5 kids!
