Fall/ Winter Photo Blog   


The cooler weather is upon us with nice temps mid-day and cool nights.  The Thanksgiving feast is digesting and all the stores are competing for the Black Friday, Saturday , Sunday and Monday sales.  Sure stretched out. 

Looking forward to Hanukah, Christmas and New Years celebrations coming up when we all will be making images to remember the holidays,  Here’s a challenge for you.  In the pictures you’ll be making, concentrate on getting lots of emotion in them.   You may have to ham it up a bit or get everyone to wave, or toast the event or any other way you can get your audience to show more emotion in your images.  Try to take more shots of kids and adults playing, celebrating in special ways or enjoying the wonderful meals that will be prepared.  Some families have a fire pit in the back yard; try shooting that.  Anyway, have fun with your photography this holiday season.

I am planning a few photo trips after the first of the year.  I’ll have more details in a week or so, but here’s what I am planning.  January 28-29 weekend go to Wilcox and shoot the Sand hill cranes, Snow Geese, ducks and other wild life on the Wilcox Playa.  Planning to drive down on Saturday morning, get some photos of feeding birds in afternoon, check in to a motel and then go out to get the big birds coming in to roost for the night (the fly in).  Next morning get up before dawn and be at another location for the morning fly out.  Depends on factors we’ll probably visit some other sites for feeding birds and then head back in early afternoon.

I am planning another trip to White Pockets in northern Arizona in April.  We will drive to Kanab, UT with plans to arrive there by 2 PM, join our guide and go out to White Pockets for sunset shoot, then set up camp (provided), eat (provided) and then do some night photography (star trails and Milky Way).  We’ll arise early enough to get the sunrise and golden hour pictures, have breakfast, shoot a while more then return to our cars by 11AM. 

If you have an interest in either of those trips, let me know so we can firm them up and reserve the dates.

I will put out some other photo trips for February, March and April by the end of the year so look for those. 

Wishing a very peaceful and happy Hanukah, Christmas and New Year.
