The Brilliant Walthamstow Wetlands

I was in great company Monday at the Walthamstow Wetlands! Along with my dear friend Michael Eleftheriades and the Nikon Owner gang, I got the privilege to explore the newly opened wetlands just north of London. This urban wildlife wonderland was simply spectacular that I so enjoyed. I had seen a European Robin in the past but never when I had a lens to capture it by. I was so hoping to have an opportunity this trip now that I was prepared and I wasn’t disappointed … and a lot more! Knowing I was going on this adventure and wanting to travel light, I brought the Nikkor 180-400VR / Nikkor TC-14eIII which turned out perfect. Using simple biology, the birds and the bees, I came across of pair of European Robins working on a nest. With sex in the air, getting close was easy. I just had to wait for the background I wanted. Another really cool bird (there were tons!) was the Great crested Grebe. It’s that time...

The Winter Palouse Photographic Workshop

Its rolling hills, vast vistas, carved grass fields, windswept snow ridges and stark white beauty with a sprinkling of Americana, The Palouse of Washington is a special place I’m so excited to be heading back to with my camera! There is no place like it and every season brings with it a new and unique beauty that is photographically a challenge. We’ve explored it in spring, fall and now want to bring back the memories from winter. And I’d love to explore it with you! Wanna see what we’ve photographed there before, here’s fall and here’s spring trips. There will be six shooters joining Sharon and me as we travel The Palouse. The light and weather will determine our direction each day (as well as great food and hot chocolate). Certain locations like the Palouse Falls are a given but the rest, well, that’s the fun of the adventure! The dates are 15-20 March 2020 flying in and out of Spokane, WA. The price is $1800 which included transportation...

Light’s Warmth

This is a real simple blog post, light and its emotional quality (warmth) has to be captured! This example shows what happens when lieing on the sand with a Sanderling when a cloud goes in front of the sun. The quality of light, both its quantity and its warmth disappears. The “blue” or cold tone brought by the cloud cover stops the photo from going out and grabbing heartstrings. With the sun out, that warmth opens the door letting the viewer quickly in to engage with the Sanderling. This is something that won’t improve with changing the WB in the camera or in post. It only comes from the sun and you must look for and embrace it when it...
