It’s been a long time since I ran one of my waterfall workshops.  Primarily because of the pandemic, it’s been a long time since I have offered any of my workshops or classes.  I miss spending time with folks exploring the wonderful beauty of our special corner of New England.  I want to get back to teaching, but first I need to find out if people are interested and comfortable with these kinds of explorations.    So, I’ve decided to sample the interest among my local friends for another Weekend Waterfall Workshop.  At best, I would expect ..read more

Eclipse Journey

It was March of 1970.  I was penned up in my New Hampshire dorm rooms when a partial solar eclipse darkened the skin over Hanover.  It wasn’t the spectacular drama of a total eclipse, but I do remember looking out of my window to see the mass of my fellow “scholars” pounding pots and pans to encourage the weakened sun to return.  I could have travelled to see the total eclipse – the Southeast coast of the US would have served, but, at the time, I was barely 20 years old, and it didn’t seem that important to make the effort.   Path of Totality April 8 2024 As ecli ..read more

  "Distraction" Removal Strasbourg France My intention in this article is to discuss the marvelous new Photoshop tool, Generative Fill, but first I feel I need to explain and apologize for my prolonged absence (until a week ago) from publications in this blog. I am a little surprised and a lot ashamed that it has been just over two years since my last post to my digital photography blog. I understand some, but not all, of the reasons for my absence.  I have always said that I do the blog primarily for my own fulfillment, a way to force myself to consider the challenges of ..read more

  Gulf Road Veil With the recent rain, we are well into the spring waterfall season.  After a barren, snow deprived winter, the return of flowing water provides a welcome release from my dark seasonal malaise.  Partridge Brook A couple of days ago I ventured out to explore some of my favorite waterfall locations.  I first I stopped locally to capture the water of nearby Partridge Brook as it tumbled past the old factory building in Spofford. It is currently a sad site with the deserted brick structure crumbling by the stream, but there is exc ..read more

Fresh Snow on Otter Brook, Keene NH   Despite the strangeness of the weather, we had a reasonably colorful autumn.  By December, our typical November “Stick Season” should have been long past.  We were blessed with an inch or so of snow in late December, but that quickly vanished.  It is now mid-January, and we are just getting our next modest snowfall. The result has been an exceptionally long opportunity to explore the patterns and muted colors of New England’s photographically challenging, post-autumn, in-between season.    A couple of weeks ago ..read more

  I have always enjoyed teaching digital photography and especially sharing the unique photographic opportunities to be found in my special corner of New England.  This has included conventional courses such as a broad Introduction to Digital Photography as well as the many RAW photo editing features found in Adobe’s Lightroom.  I have also enjoyed exploring our region through a couple of annual photography workshops.  My weekend workshops have included an exploration of our peak fall foliage and the spring waterfall season. Over the last many months Covid has made tea ..read more

?I Hate Change? A while back the New England Photography Guild web site was discontinued.  The Guild Facebook page is still active, but along with the discontinuance of our website our blog articles have been lost.   It is sad to have lost all the great blogs contributed by my fellow members of the Guild, but The members are still out there celebrating the unique beauty of New England.  For my part, I was able to salvage the text from most of my articles.   I plan to republish many of these blogs with the images retrieved from my archives.  I found that the ..read more

Another Gulf Road "Transient" In New England, every season offers its special photographic opportunities.  Autumn’s spectacular colors and winter’s quiet white blanket provide obvious attractions, while late falls “stick season” … well we must nap sometime.  Spring typically is valued both for the beautiful and varied early foliage, and also for the waterfalls that surge in response to the seasonal rains and spring run-off. Garwin Falls, 2018 In recent years, I have scheduled a spring waterfall workshop for mid-May.  It is the best time of year to celebrate t ..read more

Lower Pasture Chesterfield, NH I have been sitting on this article since last summer.  Now, the earth has turned and it is again a great time to talk about exploring our landscape beyond our own vision into the infra-red.    I hate to generalize, but for photography in New England, summer is not my favorite season.  Perhaps I expressed it best in a previous article from the summer of 2017: “It’s summer!  Great! The days are balmy, which is just a nicer way of saying hot and humid.  The Black Flies have been replaced by voracious Mosq ..read more

Birds and a Bear

Proud Goldfinch So here is the story. For years Susan and I have been frustrated by periodic bear attacks on our bird feeders.  The feeder would suddenly be missing or dragged away down the embankment toward Partridge Brook, and the Sheppard hook would be bent down in a curve, often impossible to straighten.  Sometimes we could salvage the sadly mauled feeder, but after our most recent attack this summer the poor thing was devastated beyond repair. Male Cardinal We love our birds, with the feeders attracting Chickadees, Titmouse, Woodpeckers, Cardinals, Nut ..read more
