Preparation, Patience and Persistence

I spend a lot of time of shooting in areas that I teach workshops. I find that an increased familiarity with a place gives my students-and myself a better chance at getting great photographs. Its not that we can't all go out and get lucky from time to time. Its just that your odds of getting the right light at the right time increase with every visit to a location. How many times do you think Ansel photographed Half Dome?

Using Extension Tubes to Shoot Wildflowers

July is wildflower season in the San Juan Mountains of South Western Colorado and I have had the pleasure of enjoying the area this time of year for nearly twenty years. The diversity of photographic options never ceases to amaze me. The world-renowned floral display is particularly beautiful. It’s an awesome place to dive into the world of both macro and landscape photography.
