The Plotaverse You’ve probably seen posts especially on Instagram that have some cool special effects bringing motion to a still image. This is created by this really very creative app called Plotaverse. It’s been around for a while and when I was at Brent’s over Thanksgiving, I asked him to give me a lesson. Kuna posted a great KelbyOne class on it but Brent, well he knows dad’s learning shortcomings and quickly had me up to speed on it, but I’m still really new to it all. What you see here is my first attempt. I did it on the iPad which for me was much easier cause of the Apple Pen. But you can do it on your phone as well. And it’s not really meant to be a blog post kinda image because it doesn’t loop as it does on IG. I just wanted to pass it along to you because I’ve seen some incredibly creative things done with Plotaverse, it’s just another way to tell your story...

Yellowstone Wolves 2020 Adventure

Yellowstone Wolf & Big Game Photographic Workshop 09-14 Nov, 2020 Our Yellowstone Wolves was an amazing trip this fall, so I’m going to offer the same adventure fall of 2020. The critters know that and come out to play, the wolf especially. While there are zero guarantees you’ll photograph them, exploring the vast Lamar Valley and more is our best bet to getting glass on this amazing creature. Wolves, grizzlies, bighorn sheep, pronghorn, coyote, badger and just a few of the targeted critters during our week! Oh yeah, a landscape or two :-) If you’d like to get an idea of the photos our wildlife photography workshop produces, check out my critters. I work very hard to not only share and inspire you with my decades of biological knowledge but use it to get you the photograph. Come join me and six other shooters for a great week in the beauty of Yellowstone! We’ll be based out of Livingston, MT (flying into Bozeman, MT) and for $1900, you’ll be...

Osmo Pocket – Pro Fun We have fallen in love with Osmo Pocket / Controller Wheel for its fun and quality. As you can see above, it’s really, really tiny which is great but its quality is huge! Because it has 4k quality and can literally fit in your pocket, you can shoot in tight places you might have not attempted before. Brent is up in a Cessna 140 shooting the sample video below. Ever been in a 140, tight quarters! When didn’t have the filter set when we shot this, but do now and that takes care of the prop slop. It’s so much fun, it’s a great tool to add to your...

Big, Wide World … The Two Click Pano

We are so fortunate to experience a big, grand world and in this case, a Sierra Wave over Walker Lake! The new Nikkor Z14-30 does a beautiful job of bringing that all in and with its wide angle of view and ability to accept an 82mm filter. The possibilities are nearly endless. It’s a favorite lens of mine now because of this. With that said, I have had the good fortune to witness a few sunrises/sunsets that 14mm alone wasn’t able to capture it all. I turned to a simple, two-click pano to bring those moments home. No tripod, just hand-hold, click with about a 20-30% overlap and then simple assembly in ACR using its Panorama function. It brings the memory home and that’s what it’s all...

Amazing New Nikkor Z85f1.8

I had the good fortune to spend the morning at the Combat Air Museum shooting with the new Nikkor Nikon Z85f1.8 and man, was it fun! I shot the entire time at f/1.8 cause, way buy a fast lens if you’re not going to shoot fast?! It’s small, lightweight and a blast to shoot with cause of its very narrow DoF with it’s very crispy sharpness, it makes things snap in the viewfinder. All the great detail at the Combat Air Museum was the perfect proving grounds for me to determine real fast this is one helluva lens! The Nikon Z85f1.8 is a lens most think of as a portrait lens (though it’s much, much more) so I wanted to shoot a portrait or two with it. At the Combat Air Museum there is Stu, a great model, reenactor who looks like an Air Force General so I placed him in front of the museum’s F-84 Thunderstreak for his portrait. Because I was shooting with the Z6 I could...
