Gaberial Knows Photography, Knows Fun!

So I’m holding my book on Night Photography (You should have been sent a copy a long time ago – please advise if you didn’t get it) and the other book is Brian Smith’s book on the Sony A7/A7r. The Night Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots is THE book to get you successfully shooting once the sun goes down. It is aimed at newbies to the night but definitely has advanced techniques as well as tons of inspiring images. It is co-written by Tim Cooper and covers: Focusing in the dark Composition – knowing the rules and when to break them. How to successfully figure out exposures for seconds, minutes, and even hours! Color – dialing in the right white balance for tricky night scenes – adding flash, slow sync, and using gels. Light painting – adding new light and color to the scene. Lightroom and Photoshop techniques for the night owl – star stacking, HDR, and blending. Gear – breaking down the essential tools you need to...

Life of an Editorial Photographer

My good pal and former partner in crime Joe McNally just wrote as only as he can what it is like being an editorial photographer. He sums it pretty damn succinctly and while it is the reality, there is one other aspect of the post you might not grasp at first. And that is, we wouldn’t have it any other way because in the end, whenever that does come, we will be ahead! You need to read it, a couple of...

Moose’s Updates

Back in the old days, prior to the blog, we had Moose News, an email blast we’d send out with Moose news. Once the blog went live, Moose News went away. Recently, a bunch of folks have called the office asking how folks are able to sign up for our workshops before they are announced on the blog. It’s because folks who have already attended our workshop be emailed when we have new offerings. With so many receiving their emails on their smart device, many of asked why not bring back Moose News. Well, we came up with a simple email list using MailChimp. So, fill out the form below and when we have something like a new workshop (have two news ones coming in 2014) you’ll receive an email and be the first to know. No, you won’t receive a ton of emails from us so you will have to watch for those that come. We’re keeping it simple, hope to stay in touch with a whole bunch...

Keepin It in the Family

One of the GREATEST joys photography has brought comes from the family affair. Many know about our son Jake and all the great stuff he’s doing in the industry like the articles in Dispatch and Plane & Pilot just this month. And I personally enjoy his product reviews like today’s, he does a great job covering all the angles. But I get a kick out of how he has mom with “her” Nikon V2 (don’t even try to get that away from her) shooting the “action” shots (she and that camera do a great job!). It truly is one of the hidden blessings of photography since all four of us (plus one very significant other, Katt) come together to tell the story through photography. Give it a try, get your kids involved, you will find that not only does your photography improve, so does your...
