Registration is now open for our Bosque Del Apache workshop that I co-lead with Greg Basco. The workshop dates are November 28, 2017 – December 1, 2017. For all the details visit this link: Bosque Del Apache 2017 Workshop. This is a great opportunity to work with all three of us on your photography skills. We will have many opportunities for birds in flight, increasing your creative vision, and post processing skills.
I’m pleased to announce that the e-Book and video series LightRoom for the Nature Photographer has been released. This endeavor by Gregory Basco and Keith Bauer is a great resource to help nature photographers just like you learn great techniques to process your nature images in LightRoom.
This product contains a PDF and nearly 3 1/2 hours of video tutorials on how to get the most of your images processing them in the LightRoom Develop module.
Here’s a link to YouTube to give you a better idea of what is in the e-Book and Video Series.
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.
