Upright Silos
The Latest Lightroom CC update includes improvements in perspective controls.
http://bit.ly/290Ujy2
Among these is the Guided Upright Tool which allows better control of upright transformations to correct distortions, such as the "key-stoning which initially afflicted this image of silos in Jaffrey, New Hampshire. Check this weeks blog for more info and examples of this powerful tool.

Sugar Hill Dawn: Up-coming Photography Classes
Two weeks after my hip replacement I'm beginning to move better and I actually drove today!
http://bit.ly/1Oxuc2g
To stave off the boredom, I have been working on the plans for my up-coming digital photography courses, for this fall and winter. I'll be revisiting (and hopefully refining) my introduction to digital Photography course and my Lightroom classes. I'm also adding a fall foliage workshop for the weekend after the Columbus day, usually a prime time for foliage. Check out the schedule and let me know soon if you want to be on the list. I'm planning small classes for the best personal attention.

this is a lovely image.
I'm slightly odd but I think I would have levelled the floor? Small point though.

Catching the Wave AND the Light
Sometimes one image is not enough.

It can take many tries to get the perfect surf, but the light may be there for only a moment. It is where a blend of images can best capture the experience.

Marshall Point Glow
A client is looking for images from the Maine coast in autumn. Its a great excuse for a gimp to troll for unrealized images from my archive. I love the view through the columns of Marshall Point Light at sunset.

MANTEO BOAT HOUSE

I love black and white. Take the color out and an image takes on a totally different feel, more artistic, but somehow more real. I love black and white.

It's likely that all photographers have their favorite combinations of subjects and picture types, like urban exploration and HDR. The HDR just brings out the details and textures of decaying buildings better than any other method. For me, I'm not sure there's a better combination for long exposure than the bald cypress tree. Sure, with wind, they can create problems, but their natural posture just suits moving clouds and water about as good as anything can.

Now, I might be a bit bias as these trees have carved out their very own spot in my heart, and photographic eye. How about you be the judge.

FEELING CREATIVE

Thanks to Netflix, Team Denham was able to enjoy a couple of episodes of The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross tonight, circa 1990. Watching these old Ross episodes leaves me feeling two things: 1) Peaceful - what he says and how he says it just puts me at ease! 2) Creative - He makes the act of painting a beautiful nature scene so easy that you feel you should be doing it as well! Very inspirational!

Once the boy had had enough, I immediately retreated to the digital darkroom and revisited my flooded tree from last Sunday. This was the first image taken prior to slapping the ND filter on and going long exposure. Such a beautiful spot on a beautiful morning!

Fingal Head

I get up next to the ocean in Sydney, Australia, but since moving north To Queensland's away from the coast, I've had little opportunity to photograph the wonderful places on the water.

Located in far north NSW just before the Queensland border, this location brought back a lot of memories to me, fishing off the rocks, which kills more people in Australia than any other sport. The rewards can be fantastic however, as the guy pulling up 8lb blackish next to me can attest!
