I spend a lot of time outdoors photographing. Sometimes driving for over an hour, then hiking deep into the forest to find that special image that every art director will want to buy (or at least that is my hope!).Lately, though, time and weather have not been cooperating with me.Because of this, I have found that I have been overlooking a treasure in my own backyard.Siting on my deck one evening I noticed all the activity on and around my deck.I grabbed my camera and started shooting.... continue reading

We’ve all been there- you’re going on a big trip to an exciting destination and you want to make sure you come back with some amazing photographs to document your trip and the locations you visited.However, despite your best intentions (and ambitions!), the reality is that 1) you’re going to a relatively unfamiliar place, and 2) your time and photo opportunities there are limited due to the length of your stay. As a result, yourphotography subjects and range of environments will be limited... continue reading
When you are into taking photos of places, buildings and nature as I am, then a trip to Florence, Italy, or Paris, France, provides perfect photo opportunities. It would seem that you are stumbling on perfect images with every step you take. But then comes winter, travel funds are depleted and you are stuck in Jutland, the so-called dark part of Denmark - what to do? A couple of years ago I heard a photographer explain that to be a good photographer you should be able to... continue reading

One easy technique to capture great flower pictures is to plant them in your yard.This will allow you to photograph the flowers when they are budding, to blooming, to losing their luster at anytime during the day without ever having to leave your yard.Having the ability to take the pictures from dusk to dawn allows you to capture interesting native insects that may be hiding among the petals or feeding on the nectar.All you have to do is walk outside and snap away.Heck, you can even take... continue reading
The other day, I felt like the weight of winter finally broke from my back! It was beautiful outside here in Northern Virginia! The birds started singing loudly and proudly and the small mammals started foraging for the goodies left behind.To push my advantages from my camera's perspective, I decided to take advantage of the natural landscape view from my backyard to entice the furry and feathered friends for photographic opportunities.With five very gigantic pine and spruce trees growing... continue reading
Fortunatly I don't live in a big city,or I should better say that I live in a small village on the North of Italy,so get to do some great walks around and not far from my house with my dog and obviously with my camera.So during one of the last ones,I focused on:1) a rose frozen in the snow:2) I started going after a track left by a tractor in the snow3) I ended finding out an ice slab with its curious texture... continue reading
You know you live in the right neighborhood/town/country when you pull the curtains in the morning, and you see a little rabbit in the backyard, nonchalantly taking his/her breakfast on the patch of clover that invaded a corner of your lawn.I managed to overcome my urge to run for the camera (low light, the previous batch of “rabbit in my backyard” still on my computer instead of DT, camera in the basement, etc.) and just sat there watching for a few seconds.Do you have stories of wild life... continue reading
