Ships Passing :: CT
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
New Beginnings :: ME

Into the Woods :: OR
“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 :: 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!
Dust in the Wind :: CT
Star trails over a still pond on a quiet summer night.
Nerdy stuff: About 5-6 stacked shots for the sky, one long exposure for the foreground. Foreground Image EXIF of 175 seconds, f/2.8, ISO 320, 11mm
Minim :: CT
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
Bask in the Glow :: OR
There is something pretty special about a field full of wildflowers at sunset.🙂 This was taken at the Tom McCall Preserve in the Columbia River Gorge last April. I have to say, Oregon really lives up to the hype. It’s a lovely state!
