Eagle at Sunrise – Bosque Del Apache
BOSQUE 2013 WITH Keith Bauer, Doug Brown and Greg Basco
Join BPN avian moderator Doug Brown, NSN avian moderator Greg Basco, and NPN avian moderator Keith Bauer for a 3 1/2 day workshop at the Bosque del Apache this November! The workshop experience will be broad-based, emphasizing manual exposure for long lens flight photography (either hand held or with a tripod). The other major emphasis will be on image optimization with Lightroom and Photoshop. All 3 instructors are well versed in image processing, but Keith is a true expert who teaches classes on both Lightroom and Photoshop. We’ll be doing formal and informal computer sessions every day. Additional workshop highlights will include environmental avian photography (one of Greg’s specialties), landscapes (including sunrises and sunsets), long exposures, and silhouettes. We’ll also devote some time to captive raptor photography with a fantastic collection of birds from a local raptor education and rehabilitation center.
** Sold Out** for 2013
I’m excited to announce my 2013 Costa Rica Landscape Workshop. The workshop will be May 16-27, 2013.
I’ll be co-leading this tour with Greg Basco. For those who haven’t met Greg, here is a link to his website at Deep Green Photography
We’ll be taking you to some great places in Costa Rica for Landscape opportunities. We’ll be working on grand landscape opportunities, as well as on intimate landscapes in the rain forests, how to “see” these gems, how to capture them to match your vision and effective use of flash in these situations. We’ll be working with you on strong compositions to create order out of chaos. We’ll also have opportunities to work on HDR images and focus stacking if that is something you are interested in.
Highlights include two of the most photogenic waterfalls in Costa Rica, a stunning sapphire blue cloud forest river, and epiphyte-laden cloud forests.
The workshop will be limited to 8 participants so you will have plenty of individual attention.
I also have a few images posted on my website from my trip in March representing places we will visit on the workshop.
Here are a few images to wet your appetite from some of the amazing locations we’ll visit on this workshop!
Costa Rica – Landscapes
Albuquerque New Mexico was directly in the middle of the path for the full annular eclipse on May 20th. Had a great view and clear skies. This is an in camera multiple exposure using the Canon 5D Mark III. Knowing this event was coming, I planned out this shot in my head and did my best to execute it as the event unfolded. This has no post processing at all. This is simply a jpeg export from the original RAW image capture. A truly amazing sight to see!!
This is an intentional blur of an Native American Dancer in the plaza. The colors were fantastic so I decided to try a longer shutter speed to create an abstract blur. I’d be interested in hearing if you think this kind of an image works for you. Thanks!
This refuge in south central New Mexico offers wonderful photo opportunities. In the winter months, the refuge is famous for huge flocks of cranes and geese. It is also famous for amazing light at sunrise and sunset. Here’s an example. I’m only about an hour and a half from the refuge so I have the opportunity to photograph there on a regular basis.. Ahh…
Last fall I had the opportunity to spend time photographing the beautiful coast of Maine. The fall colors were less than cooperative in Maine, but were fantastic in New Hampshire. Decided to spend more time focusing on lighthouses in Maine as a result.
This is the Curtis Point lighthouse at Camden Maine. Early morning light provided a wonderful scene. The challenge was trying to balance the sky, the darker foreground and provide a pleasing overall image with the lighthouse receiving prominence in the image.
I’m sure many photographers around the world enjoyed capturing their unique view of the super moon of 2012.
I ended up in Old Town Albuquerque using the old church as a foreground.
Once again, I found the Canon 5D Mark III to be a joy to use and play with in camera multiple exposures. This is an image that started as in camera multiple exposure, then some post processing of the church in Photoshop.
