New Photography Workflow E-Book ….Coming Atcha!

21 Oct


Want to know more about the basics of a landscape photography workflow??  Yeah, so did our students!  So we put together a little (almost 90 page, comprehensive, step-by-step) write up.

You can grab your e-copy over at our online store or, in a few days, through the Light & Landscape Magazine for just $5.99.  If you become a student in our growing Member’s Area through the magazine, all of this information is available as part of your monthly tuition in our resources section.🙂

Want a little taste of what you’ll be getting?  See the included pages below!

Sometimes, to make a photo outing work with the conditions you’re given, you have to think outside of the box a bit.  I hit the road thinking I’d create a wide-angle landscape shot and ended up striking gold with this intimate landscape instead.

Last month our students focused on minimalism, so the idea of simplifying has been on my mind. This particular sunset, the sky was sort’ve “blah” but the reflecting color was so damn purty.❤

Settings: 75 mm, f/8, 30 sec, ISO 100

Into the Woods

“The way is clear,
The light is good,
I have no fear,
Nor no one should.
The woods are just trees,
The trees are just wood.”

This image is from Opal Creek Wilderness in Oregon. Where I come from, we just dont have these sort of old growth forests.  They have a completely different character than the trees I’m used to.  Older, more magical, peaceful and man, oh man, that light was lovely.

The Nerdy stuff: f/9, 1/4 sec, 33mm, iso 100

If you have any questions about my images, never hesitate to ask!🙂

Summer Nights & Lightning Strikes

Summer Nights :: CT


These last few weeks have been full of pretty incredible storms.  It has been a great learning experience for me.  Obviously, safety is the number one concern with lightning shows.  Once you take the basic precautions, though, it’s interesting to focus on the absolute beauty that comes along with this powerful display.

This shot was taken in Bolton, CT at the heritage farm. f/2.8, 137 sec, ISO 100, 11 mm

Want to learn more about these sort of shots?  We teach both in the field technique, editing techniques, and run a structured, customized online lesson program.  Ask us for more details!

This month we are talking about minimalism with our students. I figured I can’t ask them to do something I’m not willing to do myself, right?🙂

Believe it or not, this was a sunrise but it seemed like it translated better as a monochrome!

We are reaching the 6 month mark for this new teaching program over at L&L and to celebrate, I think I’ll probably give something away.  A print maybe?  Yeah…an 11×16 print!  Want a shot to win?  Sign up for the newsletter and boom!  Your name will be entered in the drawing.

Name will be picked on September 1, so don’t wait.  Maybe I’ll even announce it in the next newsletter. :-p
