Shooting Sunsets

Sunset_0930How do you capture what you see in a beautiful, colorful sunset? I would suggest underexposing  by using the manual settings of aperture and shutter speed or the +/- button in program. For color augmentation, I set my camera to vivid or my white balance to the cloudy setting. These two changes to a normal exposure should result in a great sunset photograph.

Urban Photo Walks

Toby_0914 We had a great series of photo walks this year. I hope you can join us on our next adventure. Downtown Reno put on quite a show for us. And the soft tones of Carson City provided an interesting counterpoint. We all learned new techniques and shared ideas. Thank you for your participation.

2013-Fall trees_webIs it better to shoot the whole scene or move in close for a detail shot. Always take more than one angle, more than one exposure and more than one composition. Fall_2013_web

Through the Eye of Duraflex

(121 of 140)

Alternative photo processes are all the rage these days.
It’s very interesting to see what people are producing through a blend of film and digital.
Here is one of my attempts.

Summer Photos

What a great time to get out and use your camera. I suggest you look for unusual color and light to make your pictures “"stand out from the crowd”. Silhouettes, reflections and simple compositions.

Copying Old Photos

I’ve been talking a lot lately of taking pictures of your family heirloom photographs with a digital camera. Using a tripod and window light one can create a very good digital copy. The heirloom photographs can be put back in a cool dry place and one can share their “new” digital copies with family and friends. Here are a few examples from my family.


My grandfather is second from stage left. Circa 1900.


My mom and dad in Iowa, circa 1940


Dad’s home from WW II, circa 1944

The Big Valley

I love shooting Sunsets in the San Joaquin valley.


This day I was surprised with thousands of migrating birds.


One has to shoot fast as the light changes rapidly.


But the rewards are timeless.
