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.

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 […]
