This image of a Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus)South Texas Birding Experience Safari was, by far, my favorite capture from my 2016 . I’m heading back down later this week for this year’s adventure with eight enthusiastic clients. We stay in a private, air-conditioned hunting lodge and photograph from a variety of meticulously maintained photo blinds on-site. After a hot day in the blinds, we return for home-cooked meals. 2018 dates for South Texas are TBD, but feel free to contact me if you’re interested about next year’s adventure!
This weekend, we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our nation. Thank you.
Every May we residents of Colorado Springs get treated to a performance by the US Air Force Thunderbirds precision aerial demonstration team. I photographed them with my Nikon D500 and 300mm f/2.8 AFS G VR Nikkor lens as they passed in front of Pikes Peak.
Here’s an image that combines several creative techniques that you can use to make your photos more interesting. The original capture was made with an infrared converted Fujifilm X-T1 camera. I then converted the resulting image to monochrome and used a custom texture overlay to add the painterly effect.
I’m in Bandon, Oregon, doing advance scouting for this fall’s photo safari & landscape photography workshop. You never know what you’ll get while you’re here, so I came prepared with a variety of lenses and a pair of wellingtons.
I hope you’ll consider joining me here October 3-8, 2017. It’s going to be a blast!
