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

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

Bokeh - behind the lens

So wikipedia says: "In photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens" ...that was a part of the article and I believe everyone can find and read it :)I won't write here about usual bokeh without the main object in focus. And I won't write about simple blurs that can make everyone at every time. No one wants to have portfolio with thousands of such images with a few sells, right?I want to write about three related... continue reading

How I fell in love with photography

My name is David Cutts and I was born and raised in the great state of Texas.As a child, I spent many hours hunting and fishing with my father.Over the years I grew to have a deep appreciation for the outdoors and a love for nature and wildlife.As an adult, I’ve had the privilege and honor of being able to teach my kids some of the same things my father taught me.     As I’ve grown older and wiser (mostly older!), I’ve realized that what I enjoyed the most about hunting... continue reading

Fine furry friends

As I told in a previous blog, I'm an eager bird watcher / photographer. Birds are perfect targets for nature photographers, you can find them almost everywhere. Even in big cities, in the closest parks, even in winter (unlike butterflies!) and they are comfortable size - you dont need a macro lense.This time however, I'd like to show you a few furry friends. Some of my successfull wild mammal portraits.This fluffy bunny (Eastern cottontail - Sylvilagus floridanus) was a pro model, eating a... continue reading

Rural Hungarian landscapes

I'd like to show you a few less known but beautiful places in rural Hungary.You might heard about Hortobágy and the Puszta. We skip that for now. First lets take a look at the hills just north of Lake Balaton. Not high, but the climate is excellent for wine making. The Káli-Basin is known of the cute little villages and picturesque vineyards. One of the most romantic places in Hungary is the Bakony in autumn. The gold and copper leaves, the fog, the layers of hills, curve after curve on... continue reading

Trekking in the wild forest

I really love nature and often go far from the city and for a few days I go into the forest. Now it's time to mushroom and migrate snakes for hibernation, and the season of forest berries has also started. This beauty is often found along the route and leaves no one indifferent.   This is a small diamond viper. She behaved quite calmly, she even managed to hang her on a branch and take some pictures.   At that moment, the shooting was a bit scary, I had an 18-135 mm lens and had... continue reading
