Acadia National Park workshop review

Just finished my last workshop of the year! Time for me to think about my next great adventure (more on that very soon!). I had a very good group of participants who listened and tried new things and were fun to be around. We all had pretty good weather as well and the color was […]

Vermont Workshop Review

I have just finished my Santa Fe Workshop’s Vermont Fall Color workshop. We had exceptional weather and the season was better than it has been in several years. I think we actually caught the peak of the fall color! The workshop visited a beautiful beaver pond with multiple lodges, several streams with nice colorful reflections, […]

New Camera!!

Well, I’ve done it again! I’ve bought a new camera! This seems to be a growing trend with me- in a fruitless effort to find the perfect compact camera (that is made by Nikon) I have purchased a Coolpix A, a Coolpix 340 and a Coolpix 7800 in the last year and a half. Each […]

More Down and Dirty!

I’ll get right to the point here- follow these instructions. If you do your images will great and your self regard will be greater. 1. If it’s a blue sky day stay out of the forest. Photograph reflections, looking up shots and big, post card views of the landscape. Harbors are great, white steeples, sailboats, […]

Practical Phrase Photography

So in practical terms, how exactly do you photograph a phrase? It is fine and dandy to write about photographing a phrase but when you are out in the field taking pictures how do you actually photograph a phrase? The way I do photograph a phrase is to mutter to myself. That’s right, mutter, as […]

Photographing a Phrase

It’s fall photography season and it is therefore time to remind you all that composition- how you arrange the elements in your picture- actually makes a big difference. I know, the curmudgeon at it again- haven’t I heard of Lightroom or Photoshop?- but paying attention and taking your photo right is much better and much […]

Glacier Bay National Park

When I was 16 I got for my birthday a small photo book put out by the Sierra Club on Glacier Bay. I was entranced! The images of the glaciers and icebergs and wild animals could not have been more exotic to a boy from upstate New York but they resonated with me and stuck […]

Photo Gear for your Boat Trip

I am about to go off to Alaska on a small boat trip through Glacier Bay National Park with 8 other people. Glacier Bay is one of the very few National Parks that I have never been to and that I have always wanted to go. I can remember being 16 and getting a photo […]

Getting Ready for Fall

August is one of the slow months for photographers. Not much is going on in the US unless you go north and work the high mountains. Almost everywhere else the pretty green lushness of early summer has faded and the landscape looks more tattered than fantastic. Of course you could go to Africa and watch […]
