The Kingdom :: ME
I have so many entrepreneurial friends, as well as running my own photography business (our prints and books make great holiday gifts, guys!) so obviously I urge you to spend some time supporting local businesses this holiday season. #shopsmall #smallbusinesssaturday
If you run a small business – photography, musician, candles, bags, stationary, crocheting, whatever – leave your link below so people can find you. Let’s do our part to support each other’s dreams this year. 🙂
For those of you who made it this far down the post, the photo above was taken in the Schoodic Peninsula portion of Acadia National Park. It’s a simple focus stack, converted to black & white, edited with Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik Colorefex.
Tumultuous :: ME
Exactly one month ago, I drove up to Maine to find some fall colors. This scene, along the Jessup trail in Acadia, really spoke to me. There was so much chaos and transition and texture…it felt like it was telling a story of the passing of the seasons….all I had to do was capture it. 🙂
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!

New Beginnings :: ME
The weekend of Oct 1 & 2, David Pasillas and I are going to be taking a photo walk around Acadia. If you’re interested in joining us to explore this wonderful national park, contact me so we can shoot you the details! seespotsphoto at yahoo dot com
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! 🙂
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
Sometimes I think that one of the hardest parts of releasing a photo is thinking of a name. Anyone have any good suggestions? I’m all ears! (I mean, not literally. I couldn’t type with just ears.)
Oh…and yes, this is a photo.
This image was a long exposure, of a stand of trees bathed in some tasty golden light, while moving the camera vertically. As you can tell by the silly-string looking wisps, I do not have the steadiest hand for slow-panning. In this case, it turned out alright though. haha
Interested in learning a bit more about the various techniques I use in the field and while editing? I teach! Email me for information. 🙂 seespotsphoto at yahoo dot com
The settings, for those who like that technical stuff: f/11, sec, 135mm, iso 100
