What is it?

As you probably know by now, I like to shoot flowers. They’re beautiful and, as long as no wind is blowing, very willing subjects. So as with any subject, it’s only proper etiquette to know their name. I am, however, embarrassed to say, that I actually know very little about flowers and especially what types…

Sunrise in the Grass

This shot was taken in Hyde Park in London. I left the house relatively early in the morning and this particular morning was quite chilly. As I walked along the paths my breath was visible in the air and the layer of frost on the ground hadn’t started to melt just yet. The park is…

CamRanger – Conclusion

The CamRanger has been a lot of fun to test out over the last couple of weeks. As far as tethering goes, I think it does a good job. It’s portable, lightweight, creates its own wi-fi network and most importanly, it’s easy to use. All of which are key to ensuring continued usage. You can…

Give Me Some Sugar

This shot is from my early days with my macro lens. I thinks it’s because of shots like this that I really love macro. The detail that is invisible to the naked eye but captured by the camera is actually almost addictive. You want to keep taking more of these types of shots to see…

Reflections

One of my favorite images came from a bit of luck with the weather and taking an old idea and quite literally flipping it on its head. When I go out to shoot, I often try to think of different ways to capture ordinary scenes. For this shot, there had just been a flash rain…

Nantucket Summer

I was going back through my shots from my trip to Nantucket this summer. With the weather being so dreary and cold, it was incredibly warming and cheering to come across this one. This is taken at Madaket Beach. My wife and I had ridden our bikes to this beach from the main town on…

CamRanger Review – Moving Subjects

For this installment, I wanted to try the CamRanger out on moving subjects. It’s all well and good when things are stationary in front of the camera but what happens when there’s motion? I tried it out for 3 different scenarios: My cat lying on my bed, a ladybug in a couple of locations and…

Steam

I took this shot on my first trip to Iceland. Having never been there before, I didn’t know what to expect but what I found was incredibly cool. The trip from Keflavik airport to Rejkyavik is through old lava fields. These are fields of uneven black rock that stretch on for miles. And if you…

CamRanger Review – Night Shots

In this fifth installment of my CamRanger review, I’ll be discussing its use for night photography. The setup for this is the same as for everything else, tripod, iPad and camera. After my experience with this device for other types of shots, I had high hopes going into this. I was really looking forward to…

Liquid Lamp

For a while I was really into water drop photography. There are opposing dynamics with this type of work though which makes it both rewarding and extremely frustrating. To become good at creating these shapes there is a lot of technical stuff happening. Some of those are the equipment, the liquid you’re using, any additives…
