Grimsey Island Puffin Trip Report

Donna and I drove from the airport in Keflavik Iceland to our hotel before taking the ferry over to Grimsey Island where we spent a week photographing puffins and seabirds. Grimsey is a small Icelandic island, 40 kilometers off the north coast of the main island of Iceland. During our time on the island, we spent most days scouting and familiarizing ourselves with the island. We located many of the “photo hot spots” and found just about every bird species on the island. We also met a few of the locals that make this remote island their home and they could not be a nicer group.  About 70 ..read more

Reeds with nice light, a vertical panning motion with a slight twisting applied. Bosque del Apache, NM. Creating a pleasing blur can be difficult if you have not practiced your technique. Blurs are a form of art and are very subjective. Some people absolutely hate them and others adore them. I am one of the folks that loves them. Below is an excerpt form my eBook “A Guide to Creative Blurs”. This is my second eBook on the subject of capturing in-camera blurs. It is available only through A Creative Adventure HERE. In addition to capturing in-camera blurs, I cover some Photoshop blurs and effe ..read more

Below is an excerpt from my latest eBook Photoshop Enhancements for Flowers. Available only through A Creative Adventure HERE. This is a simple fix but I feel it makes the flower shine (last image is the final result). I hope this helps anyone struggling with post-processing. Straight-out-of-camera From “Photoshop Enhancements for Flowers” For the dahlia photo above, I used the crop tool to rotate the flower slightly before cropping it. Next, I filled in the areas shown with the red arrows on the screenshot below with the clone tool. I used the spot healing brush to eliminate all the dust spe ..read more

Going to Carolina

In my mind I’m going to Carolina… can’t you just feel the sunshine…. Anyway, I hope to be moving to the Carolinas this year. I’ve always felt a strong draw to move there, the appeal of low-country living and live oaks made me want to settle right in. When my daughter went to college in the Carolinas I visited as much as possible while running multiple businesses. I soon gave up on the dream to move there, especially when my daughter moved back to Jersey, met her husband and they had two of the most beautiful boys. So, life happens, and I have had a wonderful ride so far. After time, I set my ..read more

Black-browed albatross chick, Saunders, Falkland Islands In this series, I am going to give some behind the scenes details for one image at a time. I’ll go over some of my settings, what I did in the field, why I composed it the way I did, or any other bit of information that I feel is relevant to the image. I will not be posting this series on Facebook; it is meant to be a bonus article for my subscribers. Having a clean attractive background really helps when you want your photo to stand out. Busy backgrounds deter from the shot, and I avoid them unless they add to the scene. It is best to ..read more
