Star-Way to Heaven :: UT

20 Jul

I’ve been thinking about this a lot since February, when we had the opportunity to visit Utah… After shooting spectacular night skies with minimal light pollution, how do you go back to shooting “normal New England” night skies? I mean look at those stars. LOOK AT THEM.

Last month, I put together a video tutorial for the first time. The topic was one I’m very familiar with — shooting waterfalls — and the waterfall itself was a pretty spot close to home. But talking to a camera was difficult. It wasn’t being in front of the camera that was intimidating… Just… Trying not to be an awkward mess while talking at an empty room felt impossible. Lol So big high five to all you content creators out there who do it everyday and make it look easy. And a huge thank you to Matt, the owner and video editor over at Light & Landscape, for making lemonade out of the lemons I gave him. 😅

If you want to see said video and be uncomfortable on my behalf, and maybe learn something about waterfalls, hop on over to the publication’s website and subscribe!

This is a photo from one of the stills I took at the river that day.

I have the feeling that most photographers will be able to relate to this: I’ve shot this location dozens of times, and never walked away with a photo I liked until now. The frustration and subsequent feeling of triumph IS REAL.

Two of the biggest skills a landscape photographer needs is patience and perseverance. In the end, they’ll pay off.

Light & Landscape put together a blue hour assignment and honestly, I needed the motivation to get off my couch. Winter is for hibernating, and dragging myself away from the blankets into the February cold was no easy task.

Thankfully, I managed it. This color lingered for an hour and a half after sunset. I’m not entirely sure I like the composition, but I really, really loved sitting there under the stars, enjoying the quiet.

I’m not sure I’ll ever do anything with this shot, but name suggestions are welcome.

Winter in Connecticut — AKA Dead Stick Season — can be uninspiring. Thankfully, I’ve got a few photos still hanging around in the archives waiting to be processed. I’ll tell you, winter is much warmer from my couch than it is outside. 😜

This is from a fun waterfall trip a few years back with the man, the myth, the legend, David Pasillas.

I keep telling myself I’m not just a waterfall photographer.. but here we are. lol

It’s hard to tell the scale of this waterfall, but by east coast standards, its actually pretty big. And messy. And beautiful. Just like life.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year! ❤

“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn, and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.” -John Muir

Now that the weather is warming up, I’ve been spending as much time hiking as I can. Saw this gem on a day trip to New Hampshire. ❤

“As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.” – John Muir
