Make with the cute

By now, you've probably figured out I'm not a wildlife photographer, but will take the opportunity when it presents itself. I got a few of those lately so I wanted to put together a critter collection post. Spring certainly is springing and everyone seems to be out and about, even this guy - I haven't...

Mushroom Madness

It's raining now and probably will for most of the week. That means more mushrooms, but it's not like we have a shortage now.   All were shot with the OM 90mm. I don't know what I'd do without that lens.  

I do sweat the small stuff

and you should know that by now.  Here's a group of tiny things that have found themselves in front of my lens. oh and something a little different, from Ryan and Wood Distillery, based in Gloucester, MA. Haven't been shooting so much as last year, but I am going to California in September and so... Continue Reading →

The Power of Scouting

Up until recently, I've been a catch-as-catch-can type of photographer.  If I was going somewhere, I took my camera and tried for photos as I went.  Rarely did I return to a location to do better or capture a different aspect of the place.  Now though, I understand what scouting a location can do.  Remember...

Into the Great Wide Open

Phew.  Our most recent heatwave is over and I can probably get back outside.  I say probably because it's horse and deer fly season and those just make me miserable.  They're relentless and will bite you to death if given half a chance. Lately I've been playing a bit more deliberately with bokeh and its... Continue Reading →
