Photographing Death Valley

I just spent a weekend in Death Valley. The trip was mostly to go relax and enjoy, but I did manage to take a few pictures. Death Valley is absolutely enormous. It’s the USA’s second largest national park, right up there behind Denali National Park in Alaska. And it’s not all flat, monotonous desert. The […]

Is Photography Dead?

“Photography’s dead,” says a slew of articles recently published from renown sources the likes of Newsweek, Time, The Guardian, and numerous other news sites and blogs, too many to list here. Now that everybody has a cell phone camera, the argument generally goes, photography is so diluted that great photos are, in essence, extinct. People no […]

Take your sharpest pictures

The 50 megapixel Canon 5DSR, the 43 megapixel Sony A7RII, and the 36 megapixel Nikon D810 – these and other cameras are megapixel behemoths that can capture every last ounce of detail present in a scene. Unfortunately, much of the resolution (and money you spent) is wasted unless you know how to push your camera to its limit. […]

Emotive Travel Photography

There are really two kinds of travel pictures. The first are the quick snaps which don’t require much thought or planning. These pictures make up the vast majority of travel photographs, yet they do little more than prove that we were in a place.

Is this the most beautiful waterfall on Earth?

Despite its namesake, Iceland doesn’t get all that cold even in the dead of winter. Temperatures hover just below freezing throughout the season, and the water flowing through Godafoss never has the chance to freeze over. Instead a multitude of icicles are formed by way of wind driven mist and water splashes. The end result is a gorgeous, half frozen piece of natural artwork. […]

Scenes from Goslar, Germany at Christmas

Over the last year of staying in the USA I’ve tried to make the most of my time at home, but “the itch” for travel never went away. I wish I could say exploring Christmas markets in Goslar, Germany for a few days was enough to satiate my hunger for travel, but the trip went by faster than a car ride on […]
