The past 10 years our family has been camping at Shaver Lake, California in the summer. The last two years I've been taking my landscape photography a bit more seriously, so this year, I sacrificed my sleep and woke up at 5AM to get the good light on the lake and avoid the boats.

Upon the end of my ten hours walk in the green forests today, it was still raining, no hard downpour, just that silent rain that everything gets wet of -- I met this lovely couple. Aint they sweet, sharing some heather flowers!

These were shot with the Nikon D4s and Nikon 24-120 F4
Had to include the last one as I was grinning like a Cheshire cat when I took it.
The two young boys looking so intense, but then the lovely little girl popped in, and errrrrr
I don't think she was that impressed lol :)

For quite a few years I've been working on a project that I'm now preparing into a photo book. The story of the development of the series of photographs parallels my personal path back to my religious heritage. This blogpost and others to follow will be a draft for the text of the book and the photographs I hope to include.
This photo was taken with my X-Pro2. The earlier images on the blogpost were shot with my Leica M6 and Fuji Neopan 400/1600 film. They can be viewed Please login or register to view links.

That's what my late brother called it. He lived in Winnipeg which is as flat as a pancake. It seems over-sharpened but I blame it on my old Nikon D70.

I'm back on holiday in the Sibillini National Park in Italy. The clear skies after London are astounding so I like to try some nighttime photography. Tonight I'll try my hand at the Perseids and if I can pluck up the nerve to wild camp I'll try some Milky Ways too.

fireworks season is here and i'm getting bored with the traditional shots so i decided to experiment...
- usually i'm not a fan of lens flare but decided it might work so i tried it in this shot...and kept it :)
these were the hi-fliers...big (8inch) mortar shots and i finally got the small rim bursts. my Japanese friends liked it because it reminded them of what they call "senko hanabi" (small firework sticks that drip these kind of bursts)

Hi,
I was recently scrolling through some files and revisited a photo I took back in Mar of 2017.
Back then, I was having a heck of a time editing the raw file to make it look satisfactory.
I tried it in Lightroom and also with a combination of LR and Silver Efex, either of which usually works for me, but in this case I just sort of gave up on it.
But this time I started messing with the jpeg. I think it worked like a charm, and easily. Better depth and sharpness.
Once in a while the original jpeg can't be beat.

She works in a store in Vancouver called The Regional Assembly of Text. They design and make very clever greeting cards, journals, notebooks and such. The store is filled with vintage typewriters, cabinets etc. Great place.

L'aérodrome de la Baie de Somme, France. Lots of little 'planes here, coming and going much of the time. There is a pilot's club and a flying school, plus restaurant, bar, and accomodation for travellers. Like me! The French Mig (I think) I posted in the photo association thread is situated in front of the "accomodation block" The image below was taken through our bedroom window.

long winded so if you’re not in a “read mode”, please scroll on //LOL//
i’ve read and heard more than a few times that one is good and the other is not
anyway, please bear with me on this “background” story to read my perspective on both and why i decided on this version
was having a stroll with my buddy and my dog and saw a cool looking set of old stone steps, so of course i said let’s shoot a few shots there. they were the typical chiseled steps with lots of texture and a bit of moss….the kind we see in a lot of shots.
- so i positioned the ‘couple’ on camera left with the edge of the steps on camera right since there was a cool post at the base and the leading lines made a nice right side edge. wanted to set a DOF to get both of them sharp but lose some of the background details. overall, a typical rule of thirds composition with some OOF background elements….shot a few shots and we moved on
later when i was finishing the shots in LR and deciding how to trim, i couldn’t help but notice that even though the shots looked nice and tidy from a technical aspect, what really struck me was how happy the two of them looked, and how, with more elements in the shot, the LESS obvious that would be to a viewer.
- my result……lose the ‘tidy’ composition and simply show the emotion … aka; ‘crop it’ :)
- or, using one of my rules : “fill the frame with the image you want to show"
- i showed this to her a few days later and she really liked it. even printed it large and hung it in the studio and it gets immediate smiles and comments whenever people pass by
since i am overly picky with portraits, one downside was that they weren’t looking in the same drection; which, to me, would have made it spot on :)
- my excuse is that it’s hard to direct two subjects to look in the same direction when one is a dog :) to me, that would have made it even nicer, so i think i’ll try the mirror approach next time to help her out and re-shoot this type of shot again.
- for me, expression in the eyes is a primaryobjective in any portrait, so i’m happy with both of theirs. not looking in the same direction stands out to me, no one has commented they weren’t looking in the same direction. for me it’s the kind of thing that photgraphers notice, but viewers won’t notice unless it WAS shot that way, and then they would have liked it even better //LOL//
yes,this thought process might apply more to people shots, but i often apply the same philosophy often when shooting landscapes/nature/architecture, etc
- there is a time and place for wide angle shots to capture magnificent expanses of beauty. especially when magnificent light is adding even more elements to that already beautiful scenery….but not always. in the same ways extreme macro can capture beauty, or just be a technically perfect ‘close up shot’
- if you don’t feel this applies universally in photography, feel free to jump in with your perspective on how you balance the technical with the aesthetic
- all this is another reason why i often don’t understand ‘street shots’. i really want to dig into this subject deeper sometime, but that’s a subject for another thread. it came to mind recently on a ‘well liked’ thread where a responder suggested cropping a light out. but it also came up again in a well liked street shot.
anyway …enuff writing and ranting //lol// … here’s the shot i liked a LOT :…
Just a simple snap taken at Dungeness Kent UK of an old Discarded Winch Assembly that looks like it was powered by an old four pot side vent gasoline engine with the cog box & shift stick still attached, possibly used for hauling fishing boats or catch up the beach from the sea.
In the background you can see one of the many old boats scattered about on the beach that have just been Left Behind.
I'm also working on a personal project called Things Left Behind and this will be one of the shots included.
X-T2, 10-24mm Lens, 1/420th @ F8, ISO-200, Monopod.

Since I was destined to not be able to obtain a decent XF18, I decided to try a WCL for my X100F. This is my first shot with it. Nothing special, just from the back yard. Used a CPL and only raised the shadows in PS Express. I think this might be a workable solution.

Hey, I'm photographing concerts for about 4 months now. I've shot some more interesting stages and bands last weekend. One of them was Judas Priest. I have one photo of the guitarplayer (Richie Faulkner) from which I like the colors, but not totally sure about the composition.
I like to have your feedback/critique on this image (may be on every aspect of the photo).
