Under a Night Sky

Originally posted on Dan Jurak's Alberta Landscape Photo Blog:
For whatever reason my interest in the night sky has returned. I have dabbled off and on with it for a little while but it was more out of trying something new and seeing what I could make of it. The past couple of weeks has had me watching aurora forecasts on the internet.…

No Rules In Art

Originally posted on Denise Bush's Photo Blog:
Comments at a recent art show referring to the ‘rule of thirds’ have me thinking a lot about composition.

Photography is about feeling and sharing

Look up When I was around 8, my parents bought me my first camera. It was a disposable camera, that I used to take photos of my little brother, my grandparents, and also on a trip to the Alps. Back then, you had to develop the films before enjoying the results of your efforts. Then, later, I was…

“Got Bugs?”   I spent some time at the American Redstart nest yesterday morning after the rain stopped. Lighting under a canopy of trees on a cloudy day can be a challenge, but it can also offer nice lower contrast light. In order to maintain a decent shutter speed over 1/250th of a second for stopping action and…
