Happy BDay Nikon!

Happy Birthday, Nikon! In this day and age, it’s truly amazing a technology company has been around and moving forward for 100 years! They had to survive WWII and so much more to give us, whether you love or hate, the tools we can capture our amazing world and share it with others in our photographs. Thank you for that!

Warbird Fantasy Photography Workshop!

11-13 August 2017 at the historic Duxford Aerodrome, UK is going to be the most exciting photographic workshop we’ve ever presented, ever! Hosted by Historic Aircraft Collection, we will explore, imagine and immerse ourselves in the photography of WWII history! It all starts Friday evening the 11th with a presentation on basics to advanced techniques in photography and photographing aircraft. We have a block of rooms right off the Duxford Aerodrome so it’s convenient and close. We then start bright and early Saturday morning the 12th (before sunrise) on the field photographing some amazing aircraft: Spitfire, Hawker & Hurricane! We’ll then move into the digital darkroom to explore ways we can finish our static images. After all that, you’ll be served a great traditional English lunch and eat where the pilots ate during WWII Battle of Britain. Then we’ll really get busy with more classroom instruction, reenactor portraits and then planes turning props with ground-to-air and backfire at dusk photography. Saturday night we will gather again to continue on...
