Walking Along the Huron River

One of the great things about Michigan is being in Michigan. Having spent so much time west of the rockies, it’s nice to be able to spend time east of the Rockies and walking along the Huron River seemed like a pretty good way to do just that. With the D4 and 24-70mm AF-S f/2.8, […]

The Hot Bird in Town

Warblers are constantly on the move and that makes for challenging photography. The plus side is it usually doesn’t take much to get a great gesture out of them because they are constantly hanging off of branches in interesting angles. This Bay Breasted Warbler winters in South America and then Summers in Canada. They can […]

From Warbirds to Warblers

It’s really been an interesting month so far and I’m very grateful for having this much work. I was only home for three days after flying with the Texas Flying Legends Museum for the 70th Anniversary of VE Day and that was one heck of a trip, so much so that I’m still working on […]

Merging HDR images in ACR

I’ve been using Adobe Camera Raw for years and I truly enjoy the flexibility and speed of the program. With Adobe’s latest update, the option to merge to HDR and make panos in ACR has allowed for a whole new aspect of speed and quality. Well I wrote about making Panos a couple weeks ago […]

Many were needed for the Flight

The Arsenal of Democracy couldn’t have happened without the support of many people. They said that 56 planes took part of the flyover on May 8th which is a lot when you think about it. Planes and Pilots came from all over the country to be a part of the event and many of those […]

The People Make it Worthwhile

I know today is Thursday and that usually means I talk about some unique aircraft but since this is a very special week where I am currently in the field working with some unique aircraft, I’m actually going to push my usual Thursday post to tomorrow when I can properly explain what makes this week […]

The Dream of Air to Air

This is the one area that has the most questions and the biggest draw. Air to Air photography is truly a thrill ride as there is nothing quite like being up in one aircraft and photographing another one. The work that goes into this kind of photography is more of a ballet then just a […]

Working with the subject as it Flies by

Only half of the fun is spent on the ground, but the real thrill comes when that plane comes roaring overhead going hundreds of miles an hour and are gone as fast as they are seen. This is the time when you have to have good panning technique because those planes move by way to […]
