When to go Black and White

When to convert an image to black and white? This has always been a question that I have asked and is often answered during the moment of capture. Sometimes it’s the subject or sometimes it’s the mood of the moment, but something about the moment it clicks that makes you think, “hey that will be […]

The Curtiss P-40

When I decided to do a weekly post about different aircraft, I was having an issue with how to accurately tell the story of certain planes that have very diverse and unique histories. The only conclusion is that with certain aircraft multiple posts would have to be made. This weeks topic is a great example […]

He Really wasn’t so Hungry

While not considered one of the big five, the Hippopotamus is still considered one of the most dangerous creatures in Africa. While surprisingly fast for it’s size the hippo’s main strength lies with its shear size. Of course the five inch front teeth on it’s lower jaw make a big difference also. Despite this female […]

The Rainbird

While in Africa I had the chance to photograph some great critters. While I came back with more species of birds then mammals the number of images kept for mammals was far higher. Then again one normally goes to Africa to see the big four legged mammals that inhabit the continent. One of the joys […]

Recycling

Photography is an interesting industry. It has challenges and let downs like any other business but it also has its own rewards. Since it is such a technology rich business it requires a constant upkeep. Those upkeeps tend to lead a lot left over. That’s where everyone can pitch in. Over the last few years […]

The Sikorsky Flying Boat

This is one of those planes that I can’t explain why but it just got stuck in my head and I felt it would be a good one to talk about this week. It’s actually one of my favorite planes and is one that if you’re not an aviation enthusiast you probably don’t know a […]

Those Rainy Day Projects

I can’t believe I’m actually saying this in February but we’ve had so many rainy days over the last few weeks that it has made shooting rather difficult. I truly don’t like it when the skies are grey as I have talked about so often but it does provide a silver lining. The one major […]

Those are Great Clouds

Over Christmas break, I had the great fortune of being able to go through some of Grandpa’s slides from his military days. While I was doing this I learned two very important things that make a lot more sense about my family; first my Grandpa would take a camera everywhere. While he was in the […]

Same Mountain Different Days

This is the part about photography that I always love, photographing the same subject on different days, and seeing the change. These two shots of the Bridger Mountains were taken off of my kitchen deck with the D4 and 200-400 VR. Absolutely nothing special about them except that they have two very different tones even […]
