This Unsettling Thought Might Bring Some Comfort

We’re sitting at our favorite coffee shop in Bozeman taking care of some work before heading out to the airport. In between emails and blog posts, we stop to sip our coffee and reflect on our weeks up in Yellowstone. It is such a grand place, and we’re so lucky that in the past, others have thought so much of it to preserve it just for us to enjoy. I always take comfort in knowing that it was a photographer, WM Henry Jackson who came, shot and shared his images with congress that got protection for Yellowstone in the first place. It’s with that thought that I’m often saddened when I see the actions of other photographers.

Light & Exposure, light & dark

When I blogged about my minor discovery of how Vivid in Picture Control helped with contrast in a flat lighting situation, all sorts of emails, tweets and wallpostings came in. Then when I blogged about Exp Comp, even more showed up. Understandably, there is a lot of confusion in these regards stemming I think from a “Post Fix Generation” and general lack of understanding light.

The Log and the Coyote

Have you done much Coyote photography? If you have and spent time with them in a forested area, you know that if there is a log, a Coyote will most often jump up on it. The problem is at least for me is even though you know that, I don’t always prepare for it. I’m just slow sometimes, the obvious just ain’t obvious. Well, this time I thought about it.

So Close….but

There’s this shot I’ve wanted for a long, long, long time. I saw it in my minds eye once, back in the days of film and traipsing around in the Bitteroots. It’s a shot in the perfect light of just a Bighorn ram’s eye and a little bit of its curl. I had the light and had a ram approaching me to where I thought I might get the shot. But no, it wasn’t to happen right this moment.
