Pet Adoption Photography - Barking Beagle

 “Lucy” was a happy senior Beagle that was picked up by one of the animal control officers on August 18, 2017. We were hopeful to find her home right away because she had a microchip. However, hopes dropped as we traced the unregistered microchip that was administered in 2008. Lucy would have to wait and hope her owner came forward. By August 23rd, no call. Lacy would need a photoshoot.I often receive email requests for more photos of a particular dog, or to post some “glamour shots.... continue reading

Perseids Meteor Shower in Washington DC

On August 12-13 I made an attempt at photographing the Perseids Meteor shower just outside my condominium home in Washington DC.The Perseids Meteor shower is created by the earth's atmosphere colliding with ice and or dust particles from the comet Tuttle.Fortunately where I live it is fairly dark with limited lighting though better places to photograph the meteor shower are outside the city.My results were modest at best.I set up on the lawn outside my condo at about 3:00 AM or later... continue reading

Going Small

Well I wanted to share a couple of things with you all. First off I have broke the 200 images and am well on my way to breaking 300!Secondly I wanted to share a little bit about the use of extenders and turning your regular lenses into macro lenses for 5$ All these images of bees and bugs where taken with a 18-55mm lens and a 5$ attachment on amazon. However the trick is in lighting your subjects with flash. Using no more than a white piece of paper and a speed light flash on... continue reading

Mostly, it's a shutter thing

With many years of photography under my belt now, and several years as a wildlife photographer, I can honestly say that shutter speed will make you or break you in this genre. In this post I will examine why the shutter is so crucial in wildlife as well as other action photography disciplines.The shutter in your camera is quite a powerful and useful tool. From a technical perspective, the shutter mechanism is simply a set curtains that open and close for a certain period of time. This action allows... continue reading

Shoreham airshow crash

Readers of my previous blog on airshow photography will know that I enjoy photographing aviation subjects and always try and get to an airshow each year. This year I was set to go to the Airbourne airshow at Eastbourne but bad weather on the day I was going led to the cancellation of all flying. The excellent Dunsfold airshow which I attended last year was out as I wasn't free to go that weekend. This really only left the annual airshow at Shoreham-on-Sea in my area. This became a must see event when... continue reading

Our Obsession with Noise

When I started in photography back in the mid 1990s we were all shooting film and film that was manufactured for higher light sensitivity caused the silver halide to clump together causing a phenomenon we termed "grainy." Some photographers actually liked the look produced by this high speed film and a whole art subculture was born around it.Even today, in what can be called the digital age, these same individuals still practice their craft with high speed film.Even though the "we love grain"... continue reading
