Shooting on the California Coast

I recently went to San Diego, California for a seminar.  The timing was tight, with travel on two of the three days I was there, and attendance at the seminar for large portions of the day.  The only real time to get out and take a few pictures was the afternoon of the day I …

Shooting in the Cold

Well, as we near the end of the winter months, many of us in the northern parts of the world are experiencing some final punches from mother nature, with cold temperatures and heavy snowfalls for many.

I had a chance this past Friday to head down to Hocking Hills State Park here in Ohio, and was pleasantly surprised to see that the waterfalls were in full bloom.  I didn’t expect there to be much water flowing, as we haven’t had much rain or snow in the past few weeks, but was …

Capturing the Postcard Photo

With Cologne’s great cathedral stretching high into the sky, any shot that represents the city typically features this well-known (and quite beautiful) landmark.  There is, however, one spot where the ‘quintessential’ photo of Cologne is typically made: across the river to the left of the bridge at sunset. There have been tens of thousands of …

Alone in the Great Cathedral

Praying in the Cathedral, Cologne, Germany - Fujifilm X-T1 with Fujinon XF 35mm f/1.4 @ f/1.4

Just a quick post with one of my favorite personal pictures from yesterday here in Cologne.  On the way back to my hotel, I popped my head in the giant Cologne Cathedral, which I have visited several times in my life, but I’d never been inside at night.  I managed to snag this capture.  I …
