Accent lighting in outdoor photography

In one of my past blogs I mentioned that I was experimenting with an off camera flash in nature detail images. I used a radio remote trigger to fire the flash from different angles off camera axis. The results have been interesting and I find myself shooting a lot of detail images on my hiking trips to improve on the technique. To achieve the results I have been looking for, I set my tripod mounted camera on automatic (not program) and mount a radio slave trigger to the hot shoe mount. I... continue reading

Devil can be in the detail

When I saw these gulls sat along the cross bar I thought it was a vaguely interesting image. It wasn't until i enlarged the image and scanned along the row of gulls, who at first glance were just perched there, that the image got more interesting. Each Gull doing its own thing and I have no idea exactly what the Gull on the left hand end is doing! Sometimes the devil can be in the detail.  continue reading

I hope to move forward in this direction and that my efforts would... continue reading

My friend told me about Twin Peaks. Why I had not heard of this before, I'm not sure but, I was so glad I listened to her because I was able to get a whole view of the city from above. There is so much detail in this one photo that I'm sure it would take days to actually visit each and every special place that SF has to offer in a city that is only 7 miles long.   continue reading

Little Things Mean Alot!

'Vision is the art of seeing something that is invisible to others' Jonathan SwiftThis blog is about the little things that alot of people don't ever see when looking at a subject.When alot of people look at a subject and take a photograph they focus on getting the whole of that subject in the shot, whereas sometimes just a small detail of that subject can look absolutely amazing and say more than if they shot it the conventional way.I must admit, this happens to very much be a love of mine... continue reading
