As you may have guessed, images like these require more than a single shot. If you want to capture ALL the needed details, you’ll have to bracket your exposures. Here is how we do it.

Nothing like a little perspective to remind us how extraordinary and vast our world is! Why does the human element draw our eye so intently? Check out this article for the answer- and for a few more striking examples.

It used to be that I would call my day job (the one that made money) a rat race whereas photography was something I enjoyed.....until I turned into a Social Media Photographer.

New Bracketing and Blending Collaboration With Visual Wilderness.

I often mention bracketing and blending exposures to capture high dynamic range light such as in this photo. When a camera can't record all of the light in a single exposure, one solution is to take bracketed exposures and blend the best parts of each one to create a natural and complete final image. I have been teaching these skills in classes and video tutorials for several years now.

Expanding on that I'm excited to announce a collaboration with photography educators, Varina and Jay Patel from Visual Wilderness. Together we have created a comprehensive Bracketing and Blending course for folks who want to learn how to photograph and develop natural looking high dynamic range images.

You can find out more about it at the link below.

"You're not a pro photographer if you use Photoshop." Have you ever heard comments like this one? For Leigh Diprose, how you remember an image is more important than how you capture it. Check out this article to hear his argument - and learn the story of this purple-skied image of Maya Beach.
