Wow, it’s been a while since I last put a post up on this site. My apologies. Life seems to have gotten the better of me. We needed to move our studio, which we did, and to a new space in the same building. We have changed the direction of the business to more of teaching than gallery sales. In short, we are adapting to the new times we seem to be in and continue to evolve with the changing and somewhat challenging times.
You can view our new studio and the direction we are heading HERE.
This image was made a few weeks ago while I was walking my dog. I was looking for color and patterns. It’s amazing what you can find if you just look down at the ground. I shot it with the iPhone 13 MAX Pro and find the camera in this camera to be a big step up from the iPhone 12.
Taking a walk in the woods is always a nice thing to do, but with a camera it turns into an adventure. This was made while walking through Algonquin NP in Canada. As a photographer you train yourself to see the world in frames. You look around at the surrounding environment and try to see things as if they were framed in the viewfinder of a camera. You look, up, down, left, right and behind you. And, if you are lucky you see a shot. This one caught my attention and had all the elements of a defining image of fall. Color, a fallen birch tree, mushrooms, pine needles and color. I was dubious of such a strong horizontal of the tree going through the image but in the end I think it worked.
I thought I had scheduled my trip to shoot Fall Colors this year at the right time. However, because it has been so warm and dry this year the peak fall colors were about two weeks late. This meant I had to hunt for color. Or, as in this shot embrace the color as it changes. This image celebrates the color change.
This is another images made driving the back roads of Vermont near Stowe. Typically I really dislike blue skies. But, sometime you have to work with them. This image is a tough call because I made a choice to put the tree in the center of the image. I balanced it with two barns. I had a polarizer on my 35mm lens on the Sony A7R II to depend the color of the sky.
Part of the fun of shooting landscapes is doing your best not to shoot what everyone else shoots. So, I tend to wander off the neaten path and drive back roads. I use the GPS on my iPad to help me navigate. This is an image from a pond on one of the backroads of Vermont.
