Just Duckie

Well, arrived in Orlando at 01:30 this AM, checked in 1 hotel and then changed to another by 11:00 (long story). I went to class today to learn some new stuff and when it was all done, I totally forgot what room I was in. As in, I wondered the halls looking until running into my good friend RC (of NAPP fame) & Joe. After a little consoling, I found my room but Sharon was missing. I called her to find out she was watching the ducks walk the red carpet. “What did you say?”  That’s right, ducks walk the red carpet here at The Peabody. So naturally being a wildlife photographer, I grabbed my camera and headed down. All I can say…what a Duckie way to start Photoshop World.

When was that first click?

I’m a very firm believer that we need to know where we came from to have an idea where we’re heading. This is very true for photography! Now, since we don’t all have access to Joe McNally to ask him personally how it was way back when, Natl G has been good enough to put up this very cool timeline you can find here. Did you know the first wildlife photographer to use flash was a Natl G shooter back in the 1890s named George. The same guy helped get this little bill in congress passed called the Migratory Bird Act. It’s just dang amazing what photography and wildlife photography has brought to this world! Check it out, it might just help your...

Moab #3pm

Our last shoot of the Moab 2008 DLWS event found us back at Cisco. It is truly a treasure chest made up of old junk just crying to be photographed. The “Thelma & Louis” car was quite a popular prop for folks. Few found this cool, old, rusty coke machine and lastly is my favorite, Sharon looking out through that killer homemade screen door at sunset.

Moab #3am

We ventured out to Dead Horse Point…wow! First, with the 200VR I went after locale color and design (finished with Nik ColorEfex 3.0). Then, Kevin thought of and executed this killer flash shot of the Juniper (seen early this week on the blog). Kevin wanted to shoot before the sun came up so he gelled a flash, dialed in some comp and made magic. Now, thirty minutes later he showed me the image so I had to go and give it a shot. Hopefully Kevin will blog his, it’s MUCH better then mine. Much! Now, after Joe & I messed with the tree with flash, sunrise occurred and nature took over. Wrapping up the morning was one of our students taking in the grandeur. Photos captured by D3, 200VR & 14-24AFS on Lexar UDMA digital...

Moab #2pm

After a great Highnoon session with our own Josh presenting Vivesa as a highlight, we headed out to the Colorado River gorge. After the sun had set, it’s last rays bounced off a couple of clouds and gave us one heck of a color for just a heartbeat. Using the 200-400VR at 400mm, a few sections with killer color could be immortalized. We have a great group of photographers here at DLWS and they are making this one fun week!
