Photography for the Greater Good talk

Earlier this summer I did a presentation in New York City at the Optic 15 photo conference sponsored by B&H Photo. The topic of my talk was Photography for the Greater Good- making a difference. I tried to illustrate ways that we all can use our photography to help image poor non-profit organizations further their […]

Inside Wood

Just in case you were wondering what I have been doing these last few weeks I will let you in on my activities- I’ve been putting up my firewood. Yup, that’s about it. I’ve done 12 cords so far- cut, hauled, split,  stacked and admired- that’s a pile of stacked wood 24′ deep, 16 feet […]

Photography according to Thoreau

Photography according to Thoreau

Who knew that Henry David Thoreau would be the author of the best photography advice you would ever get? I didn’t until I read it on an old t-shirt, the one I’m wearing right now, in fact. Yet I have been following this advice for many years. “Simplify, Simplify, Simplify” is what Henry David wrote. I have to admit […]

Wish you weren’t there

That’s right. I wish you weren’t there- right smack dab in the middle of the picture, your ugly mug  smiling at me  blocking all the neat stuff beyond. Your nose is blown all out of proportion, your cheeks look like you just ate two squirrels and your head looks like a pimple that should have been lanced […]

Getting to the Point

I was going to continue with my weather/photography related posts hitting bright sun, heavy overcast, etc. but even I got bored with the thought of reading them. So I’ll get right to the point.

Back to the Barn!

I was nosing around this morning at the farm and came upon these two gear still lifes. There are at least a dozen old barns on the farm and each one has stuff hanging on the inside walls- many have stuff hanging on the outside walls as well. The top photo is of a favorite […]

Fog 2

Ok, I seem to be on a roll, a weather roll. Here are some of my favorite fog photos…I couldn’t resist. I love to photograph in the fog because fog wipes out the background replacing any annoying or distracting elements with a magical soft white gauze. Photographing in fog is fabulous. And it’s fun too! Here […]
