Tierra Del Mar | Oregon Coast

In the falling sun
where lively wings stand still
melts the colour of an enchanted day

Found a little something to edit & share while sifting through the archives. One of the best things about photography is the ability to pay a virtual visit to moments, places and faces after the time has marched on.  Especially when, for whatever reason, you can't get out to shoot!

Cheers to you!
Wherever you are today~

ARTIST TALK   
7-8 pm TONIGHT!

Join me at Gallery  Art Est for a quick chat about my perspective behind the lens and the reasoning for many of my aesthetic choices. I’ll give a few insights into the way my techniques have developed over time and share stories about the people, locations and adventures beyond the frame. Not one to ramble on, should be plenty of time for Q&A. 

If you're coming along, dress warm!  It's a big space and a little off the beaten track. Hot tea, cocoa & Champange for those who make the effort ;)

Here's the  map.
If you're arriving via the Rozelle side turn RT on Kegworth (Lords Rd is one way). http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&source=embed&hl=en&geocode=&q=Art+Est.&aq=&sll=-33.888444,151.145697&sspn=0.009708,0.022638&vpsrc=0&gl=au&ie=UTF8&hq=Art+Est.&hnear=&t=m&z=15&iwloc=A

Unfortunately that is now in the hands of Head On. Hopefully given the show is only on during the month of May it will be understood - I may see if it can be altered. Fortunately my own marketing material is quite clear. Thx for the feedback :)

Remembering Last Summer ...

Just south of the Canadian border are pockets of water surrounded by low mountains, pine forests and wildlife. Last year I spent a few days with family on the shores of Garfield Bay. It's just one of the many beautiful locations nestled around Lake Pend Oreille.

Free Star Photography Tutorial + Scouting & Planning for Star, Milky Way and Night Sky Photography Video Series

I just arrived in Death Valley, California to shoot the Milky Way & scout for some new Night Skies Photography Workshops & Tours for early 2016.

During the next 10 days the moon phase is perfect for shooting the Milky Way, night sky & stars.

If you're interested in learning how to plan for your next shoot under the stars check out my free tutorial linked below. I've also included a link to my free star photography tutorial which teaches all the basics of shooting:)

This was actually my first Milky Way photo from way back in the day.  It was taken in the North Cascades of Washington State near Picture Lake. Shooting with a Nikon D800 + Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8 the settings were f/2.8, ISO5000, 30 seconds.

Enjoy,
Dave

Story
Tagline
outward expressions of the inward soul~
Introduction
I'm a creative artist/singer-songwriter who makes music, writes poetry, paints, captures images & occasionally makes movies. I enjoy the process of creativity in it's many and varied forms. I'm also a mother of two who teaches & coaches people of all ages to embrace their own unique talents & express them freely.


Bragging rights
The only thing I'm better at than anyone else is being myself - it's not always easy! I think bragging is a dangerous sport... what I will say is: I'm lucky to be alive... survived some outrageous extremes. I have great kids & once upon a time I won an award for film-making. I feel my greatest accomplishments happen when I live in the moment free of any expected outcome.
