Good morning, happy Sunday, and greetings from the Palouse in Washington state! The last few few weeks have been a whirlwind with rare moments of sleep coming from teaching two weeks of photography in Italy, and then straight to the Palouse in Washington to teach another photo group. I loved every moment, but I'm ready for a little break. 😉 I finally had a chance to use my color flashlight for light painting, stopping during blue hour at Union Town to light paint this fascinating wheel fence. I can't wait to do more light painting at night, it was a blast! Have a wonderful day!

Glass House....
Tom Fruin’s colorful #Kolonihavehus, a stained glass looking plexiglass installation at #BrooklynBridgePark, #NYC. I totally loved the magic of this wonderfully colored building with a deep violet and yellow sky.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
~ Rabindranath Tagore

Clouds bring out the dreamer in me... Santorini is one of the most magical places on earth to watch sunset, but it's the blue hour I fall in love with. The sky deepens in color, and the lights begin to glow within the city. You might even see a star or two.That's the moment it steals my heart.

Photographed with the Nikon D3s, Nikkor 24-70mm lens, 10 seconds at f/11overlooking beautiful Oia, Santorini.

Cloud Gate
This is my favorite artwork in Chicago, it's just so much fun to photograph! Last week I had the opportunity to do a lot of shooting in the Chicago area with so many parks, public art and stunning architecture! How do you get the best shots without people? Get up before dawn, the world is gorgeous at the blue hour. Have a great weekend!

Good morning friends, Happy Friday, and greetings from Chicago's Cloudgate. I've been teaching a workshop here this week with co leader Jason Odell. All of our workshop participants are coming away with great photos, and we are excited about shooting new locations tonight. Photographed with a Nikon D810, Induro tripod, Nikkor 14-24mm lens, f/11, 30 seconds to show movement in the clouds. Shot during the magical light of the morning blue hour, a specialty of our workshop events. I hope everyone has a great weekend! — at Cloud Gate.

We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost.

Happy Friday, I hope you have a wonderful weekend! This is one of my favorite travel photographs, one and only Eiffel Tower in Paris. One of the most beautiful places on earth. I can't wait to get back to Paris!

Tips for the Creative Photographer

The key to being a good photographer is learning to visualize potential opportunities that will make a great photograph. You can find endless sources of inspiration and ideas from from any searchable source such as Google Earth, Google images, Flickr, travel websites, travel apps, and even postcards. You can expand your creativity with new options, and fresh opportunities, making the photo uniquely yours. Here are few tips and techniques that you can use with your own photography.

·      Tilt the camera for a creative composition.  
·      Shoot both vertical and horizontal composition for the same shot.
·      Look up, look down, and behind you; don’t miss outstanding alternative photo compositions.
·      Change your perspective; try a ground level shot, or high vantage point shot.
·      Look for diagonal rhythm throughout the composition.
·      Seek patterns and repetition in shape, color, light and shadow for one-of-a-kind shots.
