Howdy! I just launched my new gallery over at The Photo Frontier. I’d love for you to go take a look and let me know what you think. If you are wondering, it is hosted on the new SmugMug platform. At first I wasn’t into it, now I love it! As for today’s image…well, this is one of the images you will be able to follow all the way from planning to print in our new video Photographing Icons -Moab. If you haven’t visited ThePhotoFrontier.com, please do and sign up for the movie premiere. I’m really excited about it!
The sub-zero temperatures here in Colorado have frozen the internet. I haven’t been able to upload anything today. I’ve also been battling computer issues. Apparently Apple’s new OS Mavericks doesn’t like my Drobo. Hmm, I’m not sure what is going on with Apple these days. Anyone else having issues with the new OS?
Ok, enough whining….let’s get to some beauty! This is an image I made last year at the 1st annual North by Northwest. I had wandered around Trillium Lake for a while looking far off into the distance at Mt. Hood when I stumbled upon this rock. I loved how the rock and its reflection were analogous to Mt. Hood and its reflection. It was kind of like and SAT question. X is to Y as A is to ? What do you think, does it work or am was I just really tired when I photographed it?
Bear with me, this is going to be pretty photo-geeky stuff. I really don’t think there is anything wrong with shooting .jpg anymore. For years I have configured my cameras to shoot both .jpg and RAW. This image is a .jpg straight out of my Fuji X-E1. Sure, I still had the RAW for backup, but the fact I didn’t have to spend anytime processing this image means I might have more time for making photographs. In my book, that’s good thing!
Running up to the first of the year, the schedule here might be touch-n-go. I’m working hard on bringing a very cool learning experience to people who want to grow both photographically and creatively. I wanted to apologize in advance in case you miss a post or two. Thanks for understanding!
I hope you all enjoyed your holiday. It’s supposed to be getting cold here in Colorado, so I thought I would try to warm in up a bit around here. Scripps Pier is one of my favorite places to photograph. I love the contrast of waves, clouds and the unmoving pier leading you to them.
My New Workshop
If you missed it, I launched my new photography workshop. You can check it out here and if you use this link (click here) you can get the holiday savings. If you’re a ‘Good Newsletter’ subscriber, make sure you check your inbox because I sent out a super Cyber Monday deal. I’d love for you do take it so we can continue the creative adventure together.
This weekend was a great success. We filmed an entire landscape photography workshop in Moab. According to the production schedule we are planning on releasing it in time for the holidays. I have high hopes for it. It’s fun, informative and like nothing that has been done before! Yep, I was shooting Fuji the entire time. Trying my best to get all the images ‘right’ in camera and avoid any post processing. It was a fun challenge!
This image was made hand-held with the Fuji X-E1 and 35mm 1.4.
