Story
Introduction
I'm a photographer living on the Colorado Plateau in the American Southwest.  My website shows images from the surrounding area.  I really love sandstone--its colors, shapes, textures, and glow--and many of my images are different takes on this theme.  I also like the creative aspects that Photoshop brings to photography, and have posted a number of tutorials describing techniques that I use in developing my images.

While it's relatively new, WhyTake.net is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to view nature photography. Large images, clean layout, and some truly excellent photographs. Click the EXPLORE link at the top and enjoy!

I found this site a month ago Tony and i got blown away with the quality of nature's vision through many creative photographers over there. I love how they only accept nature and landscape and totally refuse any man-made structure within the shot.

I’ve been learning more about luminance (or luminosity) masking, and wanted to share some tutorials I have found useful. What’s so powerful about these techniques is that they allow you to make precise selections and masks, a...

This is an image of sandstone. I always like it when I find areas that have these varied hues. The colors here are a combination of the natural color in the stone, light reflected from a nearby mesa, and a clear blue sky overhead. Information on the Photoshopping for this image is found on a new entry in my blog: http://tonykuyper.wordpress.com/2011/12/02/listening-to-the-light-examples-in-image-development-part-2/
