A couple supermoon facts from NASA. Supermoon is the term for when the moon comes closest to earth in its orbit while in the full moon phase. A supermoon appears 7% larger and 30% brighter than a full moon that is at it's furthest from the earth (called a micromoon). This means that a supermoon appears about 3.5% larger and 15% brighter than an average full moon. Not a lot, but still cool.

I have been having the best time going though photos from a recent trip to the Palouse with good friend, , and 15 other talented photographers. Every time I go to the Palouse I see new things. This is dust and chaff from harvest equipment left hanging in the air. At sunset, the back lit dust burns with a bright red glow for a few moments before the land fades into darkness.
Looking right into the sun the dynamic range of this scene was high and the developing was a challenge. I blended four exposures to contain the contrast using various luminosity masking techniques. Canon 5D III. 226mm focal length (70-200mm lens + 2x extender). Settings were f/20 (for enough depth at the long focal length) and ISO 400 (to combat wind shake with the long lens). Shutter speeds for the four exposures varied between 1/8 and 1/160 seconds.

Just back from a workshop in the Palouse with . Speaking of David, he announced his 2016 workshops yesterday and I understand they are already filling up. If you are hoping to do a workshop with him in 2016, best register soon at http://dmcobbphoto.com/workshops. If next year is anything like this year he could completely fill up before the end of the week.
I'll be co-leading two workshops with David in 2016: Bandon and Bend. Bandon only has 4 spots remaining. Bend is through the Cascade Center of Photography and can be found on their website here: http://www.ccophoto.com/capture-the-light/
Are you a compact camera enthusiast? In this podcast with Pocket Lenses we talk about using small, high quality cameras, including one that will fit in my bike jersey pocket when riding 110 miles per day down the Oregon coast next week: http://www.pocketlenses.com/023/
I had a great time traveling with the NEX-7 in Croatia last summer. Light weight and great image quality and resolution=sweet! More and more great compact cameras coming out all the time.
Here is an excerpt from the ArtistInfo alert: "[Wallpart's] "Report Violation" link is actually a 100% phishing form. If you fill it out, no matter what you put there, you will be sending them a LOT more than you anticipated. This is actually the main purpose for the site's existence -- they completely anticipate artists being upset about their work supposedly being sold, so they developed a system to exploit those who complain."
From a recent Sierra backpacking trip with three dads and six kids ages 12 to 15. I took this photo with my iPhone and the soon to release DxO One. Still learning with it. I made a 12x18 print just as a test and the detail and clarity is impressive. It will be interesting to compare with similar photos from my 5DIII.
We found this timeless setting during the Palouse workshop, arriving at the the perfect moment. Land, barn, fence, sky and light existing in a delicate and fleeting balance that is difficult to find and wonderful to behold.
Settings: 1/4 second at f/20, ISO 100, 67 mm focal length. Polarizer.
Just back from a re-energizing three weeks, mostly vacation with a little photography on the side. Here are some highlights. Biked the Oregon Coast in three days (120 miles per day:-O) with a buddy and took along the 20mp Lumix CM1 micro camera/phone in my jersey pocket to see how it performed. Spent a week at Lake Tahoe with my wonderful family and did some epic mountain biking with my boys. Finished up with a week of backpacking in the Ansel Adams Wilderness with two other dads and six of our kids. I packed in the soon to be released DxO One 20mp iPhone camera to give it a try. I'll be sharing photos from both the CM1 and the DxO One soon.
On the Backpacking trip I wasn't willing to forego the SLR, so this moonlight image of Shadow Creek was taken with my Canon 5D MKIII, 16-35mm f/2.8 L MKII lens and my Gitzo mountaineer tripod. Settings were 35mm, 30 seconds, f/9, ISO 640. I took a second exposure for the sky at 13 seconds to minimize star trailing. 30 seconds at 35mm produces very visible star trails instead of pinpoints.
