14-24mm to 18mm

For many years now I have had the 14-24mm AF-S f/2.8 lens in my camera bag. When it comes to landscape photography you really want to be able to go wide at times. Not every shot, but there are those occasions where the wide shot can tell a more complete story. That range of the […]

The In Between Time

While I love going out fishing and equally going out shooting other people fishing, I have to admit that there is some down time. The main subject when out fishing is of course the fish, when none are being pulled you have to wait. If you love being outdoors then it really isn’t a problem […]

The Great Outdoors

I love combining my passions. If you’re truly passionate about something then normally you want to do that one thing all the time. The problem is usually there isn’t enough time to do everything that you’re passionate about. When I was growing up I was always outdoors. Golfing, Fishing, Bicycling were all in a normal […]

The Consolidated PBY Catalina

When I first saw this plane it was in a black and white photo much like the one below. Many famous black and white photographs were taken after the Japanese strike on Pearl Harbor, December 7th 1941, of the ships and planes that were destroyed at the base. Amongst those photographs was a shot of […]

It’s all about the Perspective

While I was out light painting I thought of a couple of other ideas that I wanted to try. One was including my friend Alex as he is an actual cowboy. At the corner of their property is a great Oak tree that has made a great subject several times in the past, it seemed […]

The mid fifty temperatures just begs to get outdoors but I couldn’t think of anywhere really wanting to go out shooting so I thought why not do some late night shooting. After all the time I have spent shooting […]

The Stinson L-5 Sentinel

There are thousands of aircraft that have been built over the years in order to perform certain tasks. Some of the planes have become famous by them men and women that have flown them. Others remain famous only amongst the true diehard aviation crowd. The Stinson L-5 Sentinel is one of those aircraft that served […]

Barns Barns Barns

Every photographer has different opportunities present to them everyday of their lives as each are immersed in the environment that he or she lives in. If I were to be living by the ocean, I would be photographing shore birds and the waves all the time. If I was in a city it would be […]

All Roads Lead Somewhere

I’ve always been an advocate for using man made roads or any other form of roadways when photographing landscapes. Like any other photograph there has to be a way for your eye to move through the image. While this can be done with many tools, using a road is certainly one of the most obvious. […]

The Other Reason to Keep Shooting

Last week I talked about one of the most important reasons to be constantly shooting, to preserve history while it’s still around. There are many reasons to shoot all the time, one of which that happens more often then not, is the one reason that we all hate. Getting skunked. It really sucks but it […]
