SOOC.

Confessions of a (former) die-hard RAW shooter. Day after day my Fujifilm X-T2 amazes me with the images I’m able to produce, especially the straight out of camera (SOOC) jpegs. Case in point, this wonderful winter scene captured using the wonderful film simulations built into the camera. With my camera set to capture both RAW… Read More

Tripods Need Love Too!

Considering how much it cost me, you’d think I might take better care of my tripod, you’d be wrong. Without question my tripod is the most abused piece of gear I own. That is except for the few times a year my tripod gets the love it deserves for serving me so faithfully all these… Read More

If The Picture Is So Boring You Notice The Noise…

My Thoughts On Noise. What’s the first thing you notice about the above image? Is it the wind blown snow, it’s seasonal quality with the holiday wreath? Or is the fact the image is a little bit grainy because it was shot at ISO 3200? How about this image of the Memorial Bridge linking downtown… Read More

Can You Buy Your Way To Better Photographs?

In this, the second in my series of (hopefully) thought provoking questions about landscape photography, I ask, do you think buying a more expensive, higher end camera will make you a better photographer?  Do you feel that in some meaningful way your current camera is holding you back in such a way that you’re unable… Read More

Waterfalls in Winter

Waterfalls, Not Just A Springtime Thing.   I like to photograph waterfalls. A lot! And while most of my waterfall photography takes place in the spring and early summer, some of my favorite waterfalls look just as beautiful, maybe more so when encased in ice. The most striking feature of many of these winter waterfalls… Read More

Waterfalls at Mid-Day?

Ideal Waterfall Light. If you’d ask me to describe my ideal weather and lighting conditions for photographing waterfalls I would tell you that I hope for an overcast day and with any luck a slight drizzle. I would also tell you that it is definitely not during the middle of the day under harsh sunlight.… Read More

WPC: Reflecting

Fujifilm X-T2, XF10-24, 10mm, f/11, ISO 200, 0.4 seconds. Additionally I used a Haida 3-stop neutral density filter to slow the shutter speed a bit in combination with a Singh Ray 2-stop reverse graduated neutral density filter to help balance the sky with the darker foreground. To keep the filters in place I used a… Read More
