Retired all-time top photos

The goal of this website is to improve my photography. As I improve,, my gallery will change and evolve. I wanted a place to honor the photos which were inevitably bumped . In this collect, we’ll review photos bumped off of my all-time top five list.

Final touches to Bun Thit Nuong

O-MD E-M5 Mk. II, Olympus 12-40mm | Taken on December 15, 2017

This is probably one of the first intentional photographs I’ve taken. In the past, most of the photographs I candidly took were to capture memories, rather than to cultivate my photography skills. Below is the original text

This is a photo that combines my wife’s love of cooking with my love of photography. Bún Thịt Nướng is a traditional Vietnamese dish. It is a rice-noodle dish, topped with grilled pork and accented with fragrant herbs such as basil and mint. These ingredients make it a colorful dish and helped my understand how to compose food stills. I’ve never really shot other food in the same way since this photography – but I’m really interested in recreating that interesting look.

This was shot using my E-M5 II & the Olympus 12-40mm. A Godox flash was used and the light was bounced off the ceiling.
