Winter Photography, Part VI: Cold Shooting   16 comments

I’m not happy right now.  I had to leave Facebook (time for a break anyhow).  Not that it’s a big deal, but still, I don’t like being sort of forced into things.  You don’t want the dirty details.  Suffice to say, much as I believe I was born at least 100 years too late, I […]

Winter Photography, Part V: Get Away from the Road   6 comments

Let’s continue the series on photography in wintertime.  With the holiday season approaching, we all have more time off from work.  So don’t spend all of it inside baking cookies (not that there’s anything wrong with that!).  Get out and shoot some too.  We’ve covered the getting there part, plus how to dress for winter.  Now […]

Winter Photography, Part IV – Dressing for Success   11 comments

I love winter.  Not as much as I used to; I blame the effects of aging.  For at least the first half of my life, winter was my favorite season.  And I still crave that clarity of air, that bracing atmosphere,  Winter has a pure and simple beauty. The goal of this series is to both convince you […]

Friday Foto Talk: Winter Photography, Part III   2 comments

This continues the series on winter photography.  In order to get through it before the official start of winter (December 21st), I’m going to begin to post more frequently than just on Friday.  That’s just for this series though.  We’re still on safety, and despite well-publicized incidents of people getting stranded and dying of exposure, in […]

Friday Foto Talk: Winter Photography – Safety   12 comments

Winter Safety 101 – Driving to the Shooting Locale Okay, now that we’ve made sure our equipment is protected (see Part I), it’s time to talk about winter photography itself – how to get the best pictures when it’s cold and snowy out.  Right?  Not so fast!  Be patient, we’ll get there.  There’s no sense shooting in […]

Friday Foto Talk: Winter Photography, Part I   8 comments

This week I got snowed on for the first time this season, on the Colorado Plateau in southern Utah.  It’s been cold too, well below freezing some mornings.  So I think it’s time to talk about winter photography. First of all, I’m assuming you want to keep shooting in wintertime.  There really is no reason to stop. […]

Flow & Photography – A Summary   3 comments

It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted here.  I went off social media during the run-up to and then just after that weird thing that happened in the U.S. last Tuesday.  Been working a lot too.  By the way, although I literally felt sick to my stomach on Wednesday morning when I woke up (at […]

Winter Olympics (Share your World)   14 comments

That Cee comes up with some great ideas for challenges.  This is a “Share your World” challenge, where you answer a few simple questions – this week on the Winter Olympics.  I really love the Olympics, I’m not ashamed to admit.  For some reason I’m not watching these games.  Maybe I’ll start.  Since I’m marginally […]

Friday Foto Talk: Winter is Unforgiving I   11 comments

I thought I’d take a break from all the metadata talk and get back to the field.  We are getting some snow around these parts and the photography is changing as a result.  But getting to and from the places I like to shoot has been a challenge.  This and next week’s posts will discuss […]

Happy New Year!  I’m a day late for Friday Foto Talk, but you know what they say, ‘better late than never.’  No internet access the past few days.  This is the final installment of a three-part post covering photography in the winter months.  I want to encourage you to put in your two cents in […]
