How To Better Prepare For A Natural Setting Sunrise

As photographers, we all know that the sunrise action happens during a short period of time when the sun comes up. During the daylight hours, we scout what we think will be great locations.

Awwww, Snap!!!

On my drive home from work last month I pulled a Common Snapping Turtle out of the roadway. Thankfully I got to him before a large truck smashed him into turtle pie! He spent the night in the back of my pickup truck and got a photo session the next day. Taking him to a shallow mud puddle, I laid on my belly and got some shots at that low perspective. The eye-to-eye level made him look much bigger than he was in person. Although not as big as some snappers, he was just as feisty and snappy as the big... continue reading

Taking nature beyond time

1788/5000I am a time traveler.I have the art of registering and transporting from one date to another, images that can never be seen again, because in less than a minute everything can change.With that in mind, one of my great passions is to photograph nature.Relevance.With the constant action of humanity polluting, transforming and tracing the routes of urban evolution, much can be lost.Ecological awareness has been worked through organizations, initiatives and media, but the truth is that every... continue reading

Nature in Michigan

We are visual thinkers. Our primary sense is that of sight and there is an infinite universe of images in this; the 3rd dimension. However, actually "thinking" can get in the way of inspiration. Getting that "Feeling" often leads to a great image.I try to keep my camera with me at all times. It's not easy though; however, not having it when an inspirational image presents itself, is an uneasy feeling that is hard to shake. My focus is typically on fine detail in nature,... continue reading

Best road trip destinations around the world

This is my first time participating in a Dreamstime blog contest. I was intrigued by the subject as I am quite passionate about road trips. I just love road trips and usually tend to choose my travel destinations according to whether I can include at least a driving part. I love the sense of freedom and I love to open the window and breathe in the fresh air. I love everything about road trips, even the part when I get lost or get stuck in the snow. The beauty of road trips is that they always tend... continue reading

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

The Everglades Turns 70

Yesterday, Everglades National Park turned 70. It is the most surprisingly beautiful place I have ever had the pleasure of getting to know. I do not know about you, but when I think of a swamp, I think of being sweaty, itchy from bugs and wet from the mud. It did not seem a very inviting landscape. I was very wrong....its majestic. Many of my best photographs have been taken in the marshes behind my home in Florida. It is peaceful, strange and understated.... continue reading
