Feeder birds, and how a simple idea can become much more complex

I spent a morning last week up at Paul’s place for some morning feeder bird action.  Paul’s got three feeders and a bird bath setup in near his outdoor porch on the side yard and has really created a perfect little bird paradise.  Not only can they come in and feed & get a drink, […]

SPOIL – a documentary

SPOIL from EP Films on Vimeo. “A powerful award winning documentary on the Great Bear Rainforest.” The film shows the splendor of nature and first nation culture with through world renown photographers and beautiful photography. It highlights the what we all want to protect but our addiction to burn more oil is helping to destroy. […]

On the nature of evolving technology

Had an interesting conversation with Paul the other day, while we were wandering the park in search of photos. I was telling him about the Olympus OM-D and it’s suite of advanced technologies, but was also relaying the concern from the “professional” community about how it could be perceived by clients. Mainly, as somehow being […]

How I (really) use my camera

Over the past week, a number of different ideas, sources, and comments have been rattling around my brain before finally coalescing into a single, hopefully coherent thought. This is a little long-winded, so bear with me. I’ve been thinking about how I use my camera. How I really use it, the features and settings that […]

Odds and Ends

“Beware the ides of March!” Okay, so that advice didn’t do Caesar much good, but I think it’s because the advice was too limiting. In my experience, it would be more accurate to say simply, “Beware of March.” As months go, it’s my least favorite, that last push of winter, when the landscape is all […]

The Magic of Photos

I was cleaning out old files a couple of weeks ago and found some old photos – the effect they had on me was a little surprising.  It took some thought to get my words down properly, but  I think I finally managed it.  The full post is on my professional site – click the […]

Some Mixed Thoughts

Time for one of “those” posts again, where I share a random mix of photos and ideas that have caught my attention over the past few weeks. As I’ve mentioned before, I spend a lot of time each week keeping up with other photography blogs, which I find to be a wealth of both information […]

Best of 2011

Another year has passed, another trip around the sun, and another few thousand photos taken.  It’d be cliche to make any grand, sweeping statements about the year; there were highs and lows, amazing moments captured and others missed, lessons learned and re-learned.  Looking back through my favorite images, there are some good memories.  There’s also […]

Inspiration File

I am an inveterate net surfer when it comes to photography. Blogs, news feeds, forums, Flickr, magazines – they’re all fair game, so long as the photos are interesting. On one level I suppose it’s just entertainment, but on another it’s a way to keep a finger on the pulse of the industry, and perhaps […]

Some thoughts on Hurricane Lee & my reaction

Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, made the news last week when Hurricane Lee strolled across Northeastern PA and the Southern Tier of New York, dropping enough rain to make us think about building an ark. The Susquehanna River rose to new record levels, flooding out everything from Binghamton, where I spent my college years, down to Wilkes-Barre. Lee’s […]
