You Got To Work The Crowds

The one thing that there is more of at Oshkosh then planes is people. It’s really a pretty amazing place to have thousands of aviation enthusiasts show up for the week. Not just fans but pilots, historians, re-enactors, and of course veterans. They all have stories and it’s impossible to hear them all. When it […]

Oshkosh is Here!

Today is the first official day of EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, WI! For many people this airhsow started much earlier as planes arrive early as do the people. When I tell people about Oshkosh, the informal nickname of the airshow, it’s fair to say that it is like no other event. In many ways it […]

Photographing Planes

Ah aviation, the one area that you never have to worry about finding a subject. It’s the one truth to aviation that isn’t in Wildlife photography, you can always find a subject and it will be there. It may not be flying and it may not get pulled out of the hangar, but every running […]

Photographing Birds

Since yesterday I talked about Mammals today seemed perfect for birds. I truly love photographing birds because they provided a unique challenge that Mammals don’t. Birds don’t hold still. Granted most mammals tend to move around a lot but not like birds. Birds seem to be notorious for going to the one branch you don’t […]

Photographing Mammals

I’m very fortunate to be back at Photoshop World teaching again on the Expo floor. My class is Thursday and it covers a multitude of things including Wildlife, Landscape, Aviation and if there’s time a little bit more. Why so much in one class? Well I’ve done a lot and thus can talk about a […]

Precon at Red Rock

Yesterday’s Precon was at Red Rock National Park and it was one of the best we had in Las Vegas. While landscape photography can always be a challenge, especially when it comes to getting up at 4am, the benefits of beating the heat made it worthwhile for everyone. Now Red Rock is a really cool […]

Happy 100th Birthday to Boeing

The tittle says it all, Happy Centennial to Boeing. That truly is an impressive feat to have changed the world of aviation for one hundred years. Boeing has produced many memorable and important aircraft since 1916. One of my favorite is, you guessed it, the B-17 Flying Fortress. Probably one of the largest and most […]

The Moose Thinktank v2 has arrived!

Dad’s new Thinktank V2 bags are out and they are great! I’ve been very fortunate to have these bags as well as the originals to use over the years and I truly love them. They are comfortable, well protected, fit easily in the overheads of planes and all around rugged. I’ve been using the MP1v2 […]

Scale is Important in Landscapes

When working with landscapes the scale of the river, the mountains, the clouds or the visual plain are all very important. If you have a massive cloud bank and you’re trying to emphasize those clouds then you need to have less foreground. If the field in front of you is so massive, getting low and […]
