Prints now available on FineArtAmerica

I've successfully set up the new print shop over on FineArtAmerica, so you can now buy prints and other gear including what I think is my new iPhone case. All of these images have been custom processed for printing and have been printed on my Epson p400 here before...

Getting from here to Launch

I have hit that point in my project where my inner voice starts telling me I’ve done enough research and now I’m avoiding moving the project forward — and it’s right. I’m also at that point where the Imposter’s Syndrome kicks in hard core and making progress becomes...

Some final thoughts on the Morro Bay trip

(Note: All of the images from this trip are available for viewing over on my SmugMug site) A short trip, basically 2 and a half days of shooting. Some nice food, a comfortable room, an area I knew fairly well so I didn't have to spend a lot of time scouting, and a...

Morro Bay Day 3: Another Sunrise, another walk, and then…

(Note: All of the images from this trip are available for viewing over on my SmugMug site) Second night in the field, I got to sleep earlier and slept better, plus I knew I could set the alarm a bit later and still get out to my shoot without rushing, so I was in a...

Morro Bay Day 2 (continued): Otters (you knew there’d be otters)

(Note: All of the images from this trip are available for viewing over on my SmugMug site) The glamorous life of a nature photographer on the road: the alarm goes off at way too early in the morning so you can shoot a pre-scouted location when the sun rises, breakfast...

Morro Bay Day 2 (continued): I go walkies

(Note: All of the images from this trip are available for viewing over on my SmugMug site) I have to admit that the lack of sleep left me feeling a big groggy and not even a hefty dose of caffeine really fixed it, so my first full day in Morro Bay was one of grinding...

Morro Bay Day 2: Dawn Patrol

(Note: All of the images from this trip are available for viewing over on my SmugMug site) As usual, the first night on the road it took a long time to get to sleep and I didn't sleep particularly well. Also as usual, my brain gets into the "OH MY GOD CAN'T SLEEP...

Morro Bay Day 1: Rediscovering Landscape Photography

(Note: All of the images from this trip are available for viewing over on my SmugMug site) As I’ve talked about before, I’ve been struggling to get my photography on track, and while I’m pretty happy with my bird/wildlife work these days, my landscape work has...

Oh no! Adobe changed things on me!

While I was in Morro Bay, Adobe made a bunch of announcements about Lightroom and Photoshop, and I first heard about them when Twitter exploded. I’ve been digging into this to try to make sense of it and how it impacts me, and let me try to summarize what I think...

Feral Pigs at Coyote Lake

I made a quick trip out to Coyote Lake in Morgan Hill, mostly to scout it to see what shape it was in going into fall. It's one of the reservoirs that feed water to the Silicon Valley area and it's used for recreational boating as well as day tripping and camping, and...

An early visit to the refuges

A couple of weeks ago I saw the first reports of sandhill cranes arriving at the refuges, so I decided to day trip out to Merced and see what I might find. This is about a month earlier than I typically visit the refuges for the first time, but I wanted to check out...

Snow Geese, Colusa National Wildlife Refuge

Ask any nature photographer about it, and they will tell you that one day, they wake up and look outside, and something about the air and the light tells them "fall is here". I had my "it's fall" moment this week, out doing some birdwatching with a group in Coyote...

Solar Eclipse Composite

I thought I would make this picture the latest Today's Photo image so I could talk a bit about how I created it. When I made the decision not to travel to an area where I could see totality, I started thinking about what I wanted to do to photograph (and watch) the...
