My newest article, a basic guide to star trails came out in Light & Landscape Magazine . If you’ve ever thought you wanted to try to capture the movement between the planet and the stars (on purpose 😋), then you need to read this instructional guide! 📸🌠🌌 This photo is several exposures, stacked for the stars. Some friends and I went to Nubble lighthouse in Maine looking for northern lights , but the kp died down before we got there. Ah well…at least the stars were pretty. ❤️ Taken with a Nikon d810.

Access to clean water is something most Americans take for granted. However, globally there are approximately 783 million people without clean water and approximately 2.5 billion without adequate sanitation. This results in death and disease, impacts food yield, causes conflicts, reduces available time spent on education, promotes gender inequality and holds impoverished communities back. In other words, clean water is LIFE. What are you doing to protect it? 💦

Summer Nights & Lightning Strikes

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!

Name Suggestions Wanted

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

Wahclella Falls in Oregon is pretty nice. 🙂  In fact, the Columbia River Gorge in general is pretty nice!
