The Fall Run is Almost Over

There are a number of ways to mark the fall season whether it’s Football, Baseball, Halloween or even Mid terms, but my favorite for the last couple of years has been Brown Trout. Fall is when the bigs boys move back into the streams and big their spawn and for any angler it’s the one […]

Personal Projects are Important!

Photography is filled with ups and downs as we are forced to create more content. It never gets easier but every now and then it can be rewarding. No matter what field you work in there is going to be those lows and highs. The question becomes how do you get past those lows when […]

Is There To Much Flare?

I always wonder about flare because I often include starbursts in my landscape shots when it is appealing to do so. It’s a simple and old technique to use a starburst. Simply close down and you should be able to get a result. Depending on if there is something between the sun and the camera, […]

Crazy Can Be Good

Not everyone fishes during or after a snow storm let alone when it’s below freezing but sometimes it yields rewards. For a photographer the reward is that freshly fallen snow, add in a great mountain range and top it off with a little spot lighting and boom you got something to work with. I talked […]

Fall Color isn’t Just in the Trees

If there isn’t enough reasons to be out everyday you can in the Fall then here’s another one.

Plastic and Water Don’t Mix

This is something I’ve only seen in photos but finally saw firsthand this past weekend. I don’t often talk about pollution or conservation on my blog beyond the importance of telling the stories with our cameras but I kind of had too on this one. This 12″ Brown Trout was caught by my buddy and […]

Size and Color

Size is a hard element to communicate in a photograph but it’s very important to the subject to have some idea of the scale of that subject to the rest of the world. Size helps our brains connect with the subject. We are programmed to want to know that size is just like we are […]

First Snow Has Come!

This past week we saw our first snow fall of this upcoming winter. Every year we usually get some snow on the ground in the beginning of September and right on cue after a few days of rain that snow showed up. It was a welcome sight to help deal with the many fires in […]

Working Flare

It’s interesting how photography keeps changing. For a long time flare was very popular and then it slowly started to die out and with nano coating on the lenses it’s even harder to get flare. But now it’s making a slow emergence and while I can’t say I embrace it, at times it can be […]
