Woods

No surprise, I’m depressed by the election result and think it portends terrible things for our country. There’s work to be done, art to be made, and a million tiny positive things we can do that will add up to repel darkness and hatred. “But the thing that got me through that moment, and any ...

Puget Sound Sunset

I live in an awfully beautiful place. On the way to my daughter’s piano practice the other day, the light was amazing. I dropped her and my wife off, then headed to Sunset Hill Park, a little grassy overlook that’s aptly named. I also took this opportunity to set up a 360-degree camera (the 360fly ...

Valley of Light

My wife and I spent the weekend near Leavenworth, Washington at a cozy cabin with this as the view. Although I didn’t know if there would be much of a sunset the first night, the sun shone horizontally down a nearby valley for a wonderful show. Having a glass of wine at hand didn’t hurt, ...

Sunflower Sunset

Usually when I visit my mom at the farm, I take it real easy. And I certainly did that on this week’s visit. But I also told myself I would try to do some photographing while here. One evening, my mom and I headed to a field of sunflowers in time to catch the sunset. ...

Cherry Blossoms at UW 2016

With scheduling and the big wind storm that ripped through the area last week, I figured I’d missed my opportunity to go to the University of Washington and enjoy the annual cherry blossom bloom. However, those hearty trees held on, and my family and I were treated to a vibrant display one late afternoon. It ...

Photo Guides at The Wirecutter

The Wirecutter just published two enormous guides about photo accessories, which includes a couple of pieces I wrote for them. The guides cover a huge range of topics, from flashes to storage to camera straps and more. It was great to work with the Wirecutter editors, a truly top-notch bunch of professionals who know their audience well. ...

Believe.

Realizing that we haven’t explored enough of our city, my family and I decided to spend our Saturday afternoon in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. It’s an older section of the city, with mixed industrial and residential areas, and lots of architectural character. One stretch features a renaissance of restaurants and shops, including a parking ...

New Book! Aurora HDR and Aurora HDR Professional: A Photoversity Guide

For years when I’ve been out photographing landscapes, I’ve dutifully shot bracketed exposures: three or more images that represent light, dark, and balanced views of a scene. The advantage of brackets is to combine them later into a single HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo that includes more detail than what a camera sensor by itself ...
