The magic lens.

The other day I was engaged in a conversation on Twitter with another photographer. What prompted the conversation was a tweet he’d written directed towards new photographers in the process of buying their first camera. In the tweet he suggested that when looking to buy their first camera, new photographers should forego the kit zoom… Read More

So. Much. Color!

When the White Mountains aren’t so white. It’s pretty obvious that when the early European settlers who arrived in New Hampshire first laid eyes on what are now known as the White Mountains, it wasn’t during the fall. Had they arrived during late September or early October, they would probably have been named the Red,… Read More

Inspiration in the Darkness.

Inspiration Lost. For some time now I’ve been uninspired to write and photograph. I don’t know if it’s the pandemic, a lack of imagination, or even the possibility that I’ve become bored with all of the things I used to photograph? Even now, as the explosion of color that is Autumn takes over the mountains… Read More

Speaking of Black & White.

Seeing in black and white. For reasons I can’t explain, I’ve been on a black and white kick lately. The problem is that I don’t “see” in black and white, never. Rarely am I able to look at a scene and recognize its potential as a black and white image. Sometimes I get lucky and… Read More

Pulled Pork Ruined My Sunset!

Especially if it’s predicted that any type of storm or cloudy skies will be clearing out so as the tail end of the… Read More

12, Give Or Take, From The Fire.

2020, a year in through the lens. I know I’m not the only one who’s happy we’re finally putting the dumpster fire that was 2020 behind us. It was a year that started out strong for many of us, then cratered miserably for far too many. Coming through the last year unscathed creatively was no… Read More

Stupid Virus.

This stupid pandemic has really kicked me in the ass. Initially it wasn’t all that bad, in fact I started out highly motivated. Some of you may remember my Isolation Project* series really giving my creativity a boost and, dare I say, (hopefully) inspiring others with the idea that one doesn’t need beautiful and dramatic… Read More

Isolation Project, Day 30.

(3 days late). In the immortal words of Mr. Porky Pig, “That’s all folks!” This project has been quite an adventure. I never would have imagined that for over a month I’d be venturing no further than my own back yard, or into the woods beyond in order to photograph. When I took on this… Read More
