Expect more Political Post Going Forward

Sometime it is necessary to take a stand for what you believe....today's political environment that divides us and makes us questions the values America was build on makes it impossible for me to remain on the sidelines.

So if you do not wish to see political posts in your stream feel free to "UnFollow Me" and follow Landscape Photography Collection instead. You will not see any political posts in this collection.

Imagine you are walking through a forest. You spot a really cool boulder that you want to photograph. You take a few shots but notice that something is missing, so you decide to add a leaf for a pop of color. Now this may not seem like a big deal to most people, but to nature photographers, it can be controversial. Technically, this scene is staged.

You don't always have to travel to distant, exotic locations to capture beautiful images. Sometimes all you have to do is venture as far as your backyard! Before you book your next trip, take Denis Grenier's advice and spend some time exploring locally.

Several years ago I flew into Kodiak Alaska to co-lead a Coastal Brown Bear photography workshop in Katmai NP. Since my return I have received a lot of emails asking me what gear I brought, if I was nervous being so close to the bears, did I get sea sick, what camera settings, etc… So I want to address some of those questions in this article.

Have you ever heard of a period known as astronomical twilight? During this time, the sky will appear almost completely dark to the human eye, but there will still be some light from the sun refracted through the atmosphere that can be picked up by a camera. This is a great time to capture photos of the night sky. Learn more in this article from Grant Collier.
