The Guilty Photographer, an inspirational post by @nicolesy —

We have all lived this moment in our lives. When the dust starts to settle on your camera, or you haven’t even unpacked your gear from that photo-shoot you did one month ago. And don’t think the “pros” are immune to these feelings of inadequacy. Being a…

Should Photographers Keep Locations Secret? by @nicolesy —

Photographers love to create beautiful, interesting, and unique photographs. We carry several pounds of gear on our backs through forests and mountains to find beautiful and sought-after scenes. When we finally find something amazing and photograph it,…

If you use Lightroom, you may be aware that Lightroom was updated a few months (Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6). One of the standout features in this new version is the ability to quickly merge HDR images inside of Lightroom without having to use Photoshop or…

Thanks for this!  I don't really do HDR in Lightroom (not impressed yet), but I have been using it to create panoramas.

The Lofoten Islands

+Brian Matiash and I have spent the last week here on the Lofoten Islands in Norway. We've had some iffy weather, but the rain finally let up and gave us a beautiful sky.

This time of year the sun never sets, and as I am posting this image it is nearly 1:30 am and it's bright and beautiful outside! We have been on a completely opposite sleep schedule to accomodate our photography with the beautiful light, so we are getting ready to head out again with the cameras before checking out of our cabin and heading up North for a day. After Lofoten, we head to Iceland, and I am super excited!

Spring is back, and in Oregon that means epic waterfall adventures! This is +Brian Bonham photographing Emerald Falls, a beautiful and giant waterfall at the top of a pretty daring hike along the side of yet another waterfall.

Underexposing Dark Scenes for Proper Exposure by @nicolesy

The internal meter in your camera is always trying to balance your settings to create what it thinks is a proper exposure. In the “mind” of the camera meter, it thinks that everything is balanced if it is gray. For most subjects, such as light skintone…

Direction of Light for Food Photography from @nicolesy

When photographing food, the direction of your light is very important. Certain angles of light will help shape the scene and can also be the difference between a successful image, and one that is just “meh”. In this article I will be sharing examples of…
