I’ve never really thought about blogging as such, but after some prompting from friends and visitors to my website I’ve decided to give it a try.
Every time I leave the house with my camera I look at it as an adventure. No matter how many times I visit someplace I try to look at it from a tourists view, as if I have never been there before.
Over the last few years I’ve made the transition from film to digital so it has allowed me to spend more time photographing the beautiful scenery Washington has to offer. During the last year I have been working with models doing studio and location shoots which have also been an adventure for me.
I get a lot of email and just don’t have the time to answer all the questions, so I hope over time I can answer most of the questions with this blog. So what I hope to accomplish with this blog is to provide information about the places I photograph and some of the “adventures” I’ve had during the process. I like to call some of these the “no problem” days, the days you think will go smoothly but often turn into minor disasters. I hope any visitor planning to visit Washington can find useful information as well as have a good laugh at some of my “no problem” days. We’ve all been there.
My blog is divided into two categories which you can pick from the categories drop-down menu. The first will be my posts about some of the places I photograph and my “no problem” days. The second section will be some tips and tricks I’ve learned over the years and hopefully some very simple explanations of camera functions such as aperture, shutter speed, various program modes, etc. These will be mainly directed to anyone who is new to photography and confused about shooting in “manual” mode. Not meaning to insult anyone but I’ve named this section “Photography for Idiots”.
