Finished up a menu shoot last month and had a handful of questions, so I answered them for everyone in a blog post.

Details about how I lit and plated the food.

It kind of goes with out saying that you can't control the weather. So to get a great landscape you've got to be ready for the light and you have to be a little lucky.

The key though is to actually get the shot when luck turns in your favor. 

Are you ready?

Lightroom CC 2015.2

There's a lot of negative feedback running around about the latest update. It's very scorched earth type stuff. 

I have had a rather positive experience, so I want to throw that into the public record so you can make up your own mind.

+Eric Leslie & +John Getchel, I'd agree with both of you on those points. There was a period of time where I would simply ignore updates when I was content with what I had. What I found, was that over time, my software began to become less and less usable as the outside software that was designed to communicate with it updated as well. At some point, they would stop communicating. Eventually, I'd have to upgrade across the board and in some cases, lost information because it couldn't be converted or translated anymore since I missed so many updates in between. It's a bit of a lose/lose situation in the long term. You sometimes have to be amenable to the short term annoyances to avoid the long term headaches.

In Landscape photography, one of the tenets is to find your subject and then eliminate other objects from the frame that don't contribute to it. In the case of this water fall that is nearly 300 feet tall over 6 big drops through a deep heavily wooded canyon, you just can't get it all in a single shot. Maybe from the air it's possible, but ain't nobody got time for that.

When you follow me or anyone for that matter on Google+, what do you expect to see?

The vibe here today is so much different than when it launched back in 2011. Can you believe it's 4 years old?

The Magic of Still

There is real magic at when you're walking through the forest at dusk and with fresh snow on the ground. The silence literally pierces your soul. It's really hard to describe in words.

That all came together here at Lassen one evening. Have you ever been out in the snowy woods as the sun drifts below the horizon?

What starts as a spark of imagination, mixed in with a little motivation and you can create something new.

Turn off the outside world and find inspiration in the quiet place of your personal thoughts.

Creativity is the will to act on that spark of inspiration. #hustle

Do you consume video on Google+?

Not a single bit of interaction after 3 hours on my last post, a time-lapse. Lesson learned... Sheesh 😎😎

I missed the "official" post of the video, but I saw this on mobile while sipping my coffee this morning. I'll put my video comments in the appropriate place (on the video post).

I've read all comments here and understand what everyone else is saying. However, I love watching video of places as much as stills. In fact, you see far more that way than with a still. I've been known to go on Google Earth after seeing a still because I want to see more of a place. I'm inquisitive that way. (Google Earth can hook me far too long!)

So, yes, I will watch video unless it's poorly done, then I won't last more than a few seconds.

Engineer Mountain Timelapse

This summer when I was out in Durango, I got the chance to climb Engineer. Having never shot a lick of time-lapse video, I just decided it was time while I was up there on the mountain.

So this is my first foray into shooting a lapse. I used Premiere to put this together. Next time I'll probably use LRTimelapse so I can de-flicker the footage.

What do you guys use?

I threw on my designer hat today, a hat that has never fit well. Despite my best efforts to screw this up, I managed to do something out of the ordinary. I made something decent. 

You know it's okay when your wife asks, "You made that?" Why yes honey, I did!

Stay tuned for the time-lapse that this accompanies :D #visitdurango

Why would I go and shoot #AcroYoga  pictures someplace normal like the gym or the beach? That would just be too easy. You can tell here, but they are perched up at the top of a small waterfall. It was so fun getting to shoot them.

I used an #Einsten640  for the key light on the right and a speed light on the left. It was super tricky getting the lights dialed into the right position because the ground was anything but flat. 

1/80th sec to get a as much ambient light as possible. f/8.0 at ISO 400.

Yeah, many use a narrow depth of field to separate the subject from the background. Using light really make it feel 3d :D

We got our first real rain of the season today. It was the first time I've worn pants and a sweat shirt in ages. I couldn't help but think of fall color. I cannot wait!

It's great for Landscapes. It's great for Portraits!
