The Camera Goes Everywhere!

When you are out and about you never know where that next great image will be and that’s why it is important to have your camera with you. If you saw my post yesterday then you know I had my camera with me while fishing. I have spent a lot of time on the Gallatin […]

It’s Good to be Out on the Water

I’ve started to really enjoy branching out in my photography into areas I never thought I would go. One of those areas is outdoor sports, like fly fishing. We’re starting to get back into the season where the rivers aren’t quite so high or muddy from the Spring runoff. The insects hatches are starting to […]

One Quick Spring Storm

I love Spring weather in the Rockies. Bozeman has always been a great place for landscape photography since we usually get some great clouds moving through. Yesterday was one of those days where I really wasn’t sure if anything was going to happen since nothing did all day. It wasn’t until about 5pm that the […]

Loving that ACR Pano Feature

Ever since Adobe added the merge to HDR and merge to Pano options in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom CC, I have truly been enjoying the capabilities of these features. Whenever I go out shooting, I take a few extra shots to see what kind of Pano I can create and sometimes they turn out […]

Why I Love the Mountains

Except for my travels, I have spent my whole life in the mountains. Whether it’s the Sierra’s or the Rockies there is just something about being up in gods country that just feels good, especially when those days come along that I’m glad I became a photographer. The Gallatin River is very swollen right now […]

Back to the Spring Showers

May has been one very interesting month flying across the country and the weather has been more then interesting over the last month. Spring time in Montana has always been one of my favorite times of the year because of the great thunderstorms we get. Memorial Weekend was very wet as we had rain throughout […]

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 multiple faces of Smoky Quartz

I love learning new things and each day there is the possibility for something. Last weekend for instance I learned that Montana is one of the largest producers of Smoky Quartz crystal, a rare crystal in other states. The Smoky quartz is the dark version of the white quartz that most people known about and […]

Making Pano’s in Adobe Camera Raw

With the launch last week of Lightroom CC there was also an update to Camera Raw 9.0. With this new update came the ability to merge images in ACR to create panos and HDR images. For those that have ever tried to make panos before, using ACR is so much nicer! It’s a very fast […]

Inspiration lead to a new Shot

A while back I saw an image on Google+ and it was a real nice basic landscape shot that was taken while laying down in the middle of the road. It really got my attention and made me want to go out and get a shot like it. Now I have always been an advocate […]
