Storm Brewing

Published by under Mountains

Went into my favorite place to go shoot and walked around Bear Lake and noticed that Hallet’s had some really nice clouds moving in over the ridge.  When I took it I knew it was going to be Black and White.

Looking at Landscapes in a Different Light

Published by under Uncategorized

I have been shooting landscapes for the last few years and thought I was getting fairly decent at it. Notice I did say “thought”. This last weekend, I attended a workshop led by Moose Peterson, a wildlife, aviation, and landscape photographer in Mammoth Lakes. It was to say the less, a blast and also an eye opener. So the big points I learned are these: when making the click, you want the viewer to say, I want to be there instead of saying, oh he (the shooter) was there. Use the lines to lead people to what you want them to see. Centering the subject is bad for the most part (something I am very guilty of). So now as I go back out and shoot more landscapes of places here in Colorado, I can take those new points and apply them, hopefully making better images for myself ad everyone that looks at my images. Oh, I got hooked on stars. Knowing what I know now and with the camera I have now, I am most definitely going to be shooting more night shoots of the stars. Libby Flats here I come (when the road is open)

Here He Comes

Published by under Mountains

Had our first really good blow last night, woke up this morning to the mountains with a nice white coat on some of them and Trail Ridge Road is now closed for the season. So it looks like winter is on the way. I hope we have a good winter this year with some really good snow. Last year was just too dry and mild. Need me some cold weather…..

Have a nice day.

LumiQuest UltraStrap Review

Published by under Photography,Reviews

Lumiquest is a manufacturer of light modifiers especially for small flashes such as a Nikon SB-800, 900, 910. I currently own a Lumiquest Softbox  for my flashes.  I have been looking for a Velcro strap that will securely hold the box as designed to the flash without it loosening up and the Softbox falling off the flash.  So I purchased the Ultrastrap and tested it.  Have to say, it works like a champ. Extremely easy to put on the flash, put the softbox on the strap, go shooting, remove the softbox, and then the strap.. Never did come of the flash while shooting. Great product and if you use their products or any other product that requires Velcro attached to the flash and do not want to have the stuff glued to your expensive flash gear, this is the strap you need.

 

Here is the link to the Ultrastrap and more info about from Lumiquest Ultrastrap

Yellowstone – Geyser Basin Day (Day 4)

Published by under Photography,Travel

Started the day from the top of the basin and worked the way down to the one of the main attractions of the park, Old Faithful. The water in the first two images was so clear that you could actually see the bubbles form and come to the surface. Great way to time the shots.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Old Faithful was having a hard day the day I shot it, I swear I saw the ranger go give it some fiber to help it out. You remember those commericals, right!!!!
