In the countless images I have made here this is the first time I have crawled out to this perch above the canyon to make an image. It is certainly not hard to get here but I often spend more time inside the gorge and forget to take advantage of the myriad other views. It is easy to get pulled into the short view with all of its details but sometimes getting up higher and taking the long view can achieve great results. There is probably a lesson in there somewhere.
Hi everyone. For the last few months I have been preparing for an upcoming trip to Iceland, in June, and working to hone in on the exact combination of gear to take. In anticipation of the trip I added a Sony a7RII to the kit and will be taking this along with my Fuji X-T2 and X-Pro 2 cameras. Hauling around two different camera systems is not a new concept for me, having shot Sony and Nikon at the same time, but it did present me with a lens dilemma that needed some resolution.
Hi everyone. Over the next few posts I will be presenting a series of new images shot with the Fuji X-Pro2 and the Fujinon 16-55mm, f2.8. I have begun to make a subtle move towards an all Fuji kit, some of which I will attempt to explain as I go through the images. Some of my initial thoughts can be found in my most recent Equipment Essay Post on the X-Pro2.
Hi everyone. I don't have a real editorial purpose in today's post, a dangerous concept I realize, but sometimes a little rambling is just fine. Let's just say the point is to show a few new images from a recent shoot. A lot of commitments have kept me from being behind the camera over the past few months, a situation it seems, that puts me in a state of anxiety. So when I can muster up an escape for a few hours I will take advantage of the opportunity.
Muddy Creek has featured prominently in my work over the last few years. This is largely due to it's location near my daughters college and the special permission I was granted to shoot here. Located on private land, Muddy Creek plunges through a gorge cut from the last glaciers to recede from Western Pennsylvania over 20,000 years ago.
Moving water – waterfalls, rivers, streams and surf – often presents unique challenges to the landscape photographer. The most common way to capture images of moving water is to use a slower shutter speed. But how slow should the shutter speed be? The answer largely depends on the effect you are looking for in the final image.
