Tide Pools

Tide Pools

Probably the most alien, yet accessible world available for one to photograph is the Pacific Tide Pool.  Every square inch of one of these little ecosystems brims with beautiful, indescribable treasures. Somewhere around 13 years ago, I started shooting underwater for my second time – This time with digital cameras.  I started with an Olympus …

Salad Days

Salad Days

What a wonderful, busy time of year. The colors are awesome and they’re just going to get better.  The Fuji XT-2 captures all of the shades and the light of late summer, without much need for pushing vibrance in Lightroom post production.  Anticipating the harvest time to come.

At the docks in Garibaldi, Oregon, after the fishing boats come in, I used a Fuji XT2 – the perfect travel system – to capture these stunning, back lit, dinner-to-be’s. …

Sure it’s snowing but… flowers!

I give thanks for any flower with the balls to come up after this long and snowy winter.  Bloom you bad-assed flowers, bloom like the fearless mad-dog maniacs you are!

Every Footstep Required the Faith to Fall Forward.

It’s The Dead of Winter and Even the Flowers are Blue

This photo uses a north-facing window for a flattering, diffuse light source, a wide aperture for a narrow, dramatic field of focus, and high ISO for a textured grainy effect.
