Have you ever gone to the same location multiple times in the same day, simply to observe what the place looked like at those different times of day? You would think that I, of all people, would have done this many, many times since I love landscape photography. But getting to a location isn’t always […]

It shouldn’t be hard to find Interesting Textures everywhere you go, even in places you’ve never explored before! As you just saw, I took lots of texture pictures. I thought I had done a pretty good job. However, it wasn’t until after I put them on the computer and started sorting through them that I […]

On Assignment: A Peaceful Scene

Peaceful Scene (play)

This was a tough photo shoot to bring you along on! Taking video at night is quite the challenge. And that hillside! It is literally a field of thorns. But come now! Let me take you behind the scenes, and show you how that epic, pre-dawn trek unfolded! That was such an amazing photo shoot! […]

According to the details for the current assignment, perfect order in nature could also mean perfect order in man-made landscapes, so off I went looking for symmetrical gardens and manicured lawns at the closest botanical garden I could find! Oh what a surprise I was in for! It was different being on a time-crunch too. […]

When I read the details for this month’s Lenspiration photo assignment, I thought “Hey, this is going to be easy; I have plenty of brothers to use as models, it’s a bright sunny day, and I know exactly where to shoot it!” Well, as usual, it didn’t exactly turn out as expected. . . . […]

It’s time to take some pictures for the missionaries in Europe again! This time, we’re going for a spring-time theme. And illustrating Psalm 119:103, “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” If you decide to go out and take pictures of honey bees like I did, beware. […]

Last weekend concluded Lenspiration’s CAPTURE Vermont landscape photography workshop! During the scouting excursions before the workshop began, I found it difficult to find great spots for a large group of photographers to stop and explore. New England is captured best one pull off at a time. However, I was able to find a few places […]

The Lord also gave opportunity […]
