Wild Models

Yesterday I found myself on a long pier stretching far out into the Atlantic Ocean. An aggressive group of large pelicans were hanging around the end of the pier to snatch leftover fresh bait.These birds were fairly unafraid of the bystanders but to get close-up images of wild birds or animals without an expensive long lens, can be a challenge.The images above illustrate two different styles of photographing animals. I especially... continue reading

Erin Go Bragh!

Erin Go Bragh translates to "Ireland Forever" and in the US where everyone claims to be Irish on St. Patrick's Day, it is often heard.
In parts of the world, March 17th is all about beer. Specifically, green beer. Very green beer tends to look like dish soap even under the best conditions. Better to concentrate on other Irish symbols that are more easily photographed or on only slightly tinted ale.... continue reading

What is She Wearing?

Wardrobe is key to a professional looking image. And the type of clothing that a model is wearing can enhance the salability of an image in more ways than one.Here is a terrific image of a teen writing on the board in her classroom. The model's top gives a clue to the season: it is clothing that would only be worn in very warm weather.And since school is usually associated with the cooler seasons in most parts of the Northern hemisphere at least, the image usage could be limited if... continue reading

Physics and photography - white balance

  Word photography is actually a combination of two words which have roots in Greek language. “Photon” which can be translated to light and “graphia” which means drawing. So, if you combine it together it sounds like “painting with light”. If we deep dive into the first word – photon, we are actually visiting the realm of physics because photon is an electromagnetic wave carrier, a single quantum of the electromagnetic wave. There are many types of electromagnetic (EM) waves which... continue reading

I am a Cachupin

I spend lots of time biking, traveling and commuting, and I wanted to share the story behind all of my dog photographs:Two months ago I left the United States to experience the mythic reality around the Andes Range and the cultures that call it home. I landed in Ushuaia and promptly assembled my bike and left the airport filled with enthusiasm for the act of discovery. Within minutes of leaving the airport I made my first foreign discovery; a pack of dishevelled stray dogs chased, barked, and... continue reading

Russia for stock photographers - part two

A few weeks ago, I published part 1 of my trip to Russia.Today, I'd like to share with you, the rest of my trip to Ufa, the capitol of Bashkiria, a semi-autonomous republic about 1000 miles east of Moscow on the western slopes of the Ural, the area around it.     To a foreigner, Ufa is not a particular tourist attraction.   It's an industrial 2,000,000 million inhabitants city, that seem to have frozen in time some 30 years ago. Since there aren't any... continue reading

Best Places to Photograph the Gorgeous Fall Foliage in Asia

Fall is one of the two seasons (the other is sprind) where shutterbugs go wild as nature bursts with vibrant colors from gold to red. The cue is to go where the trees are. But not just any trees. Oaks, maples, beeches, sweetgums, yellow-poplars, dogwoods, hickories, and some of the tree varieties with leaves changing colors are the fall season approaches.Takachiho Gorge, Miyazaki, Japan   Takachiho Gorge is a triangular gorge leading to a 17 meter high Minainotaki waterfall flowing... continue reading
