Slow and Steady Makes an Image

When I went to Africa I was thinking about two things, the people I would be working with and the critters. I’m often thinking about that experience especially now that it has been several months and certain details are starting to fade. That’s the reality of travel, these little nuisances get lost over time. One […]

The Cessna AT-17 Bobcat

The Cessna AT-17 Bobcat twin engine advanced trainer was one of the most utilized trainers used by the Army Corps, later the US Army Air Force, bridging the gap between single engine trainers like the T-6 Texan and multi-engine aircraft.

Spring Shooting with Black Birds

While it is technically Spring it doesn’t feel that way yet. We had a good snow storm come through over the last couple of days which is great for water levels, as most states west of the rockies need the water, but it also brings along that grey sky. Well I wanted to go out […]

The Inner Scene Becomes the Whole Scene

When it comes to landscape photography I was taught a long time ago that taking in everything in your scope, while good, is not always the best way to go about it. If you go by the traditional rule of thirds then you have to take everything into effect but if you are trying to […]

The Fabulous Spring Sunsets Have Returned

I’ve spent most of my life living in the mountains and it still amazes me how much the landscape can change. For a couple of years now I have gone to one spot just south of town for sunset shoots of the Bridger Mountains. The main reason is an obvious one, it’s a really good […]

When to Change the White Balance

The White Balance is a very important feature with our digital cameras and is one that is often underutilized. It’s very simple these days to shoot RAW format and then in post make the changes that the White Balance could’ve have done in the camera. While there is nothing wrong with this if you’re shooting […]

The Spring migration is starting to happen in certain areas, granted the weather throughout the country is making time tables a little off, but birds are moving through. With rainy days this whole past week, […]
