Ludington Beach View

This image was captured during the Lake Michigan workshop. To create this image I processed two images in the lightroom Develop Pallet and then used Lightroom’s Panoramic blend mode to create a single Panoramic image. After creating this Panoramic image I used Topaz Clarity to give it a little pop.

Our Lake Michigan shoreline reminds me of the beaches along North Carolina’s Outer Banks both have wonderful sand, dune grass, wild sea oats and lighthouses. Michigan like the Outer Banks has great lighthouses and more of them. Between North and South Carolina there are 16 lighthouses while Michigan has 127 remaining lighthouses.

Gilmore car museum – Lake Michigan Lighthouse workshop Aug 9-12

The hood ornaments of cars has have fascinated me since I was a kid and going to car museums is a fun way to bring back a little nostalgia while I photograph these works of art.

The Gilmore car museum on the west side of Michigan has one of the country’s best collection of antique cars and I am looking fwd to visiting the Gilmore which will be one of the stops on my Lake Michigan lighthouse workshop this August.

Barns of Michigan

During the Lighthouse working along the West Coast of Michigan we spent some time photographing some of Michigan’s wonderful barns.

Barns are normally red and to have a white barn in perfect condition was fun to capture. This barn in the northern Lower Peninsula is one of the best I have ever seen and I will be visiting it with clients for every workshop I give in Northern Michigan.

Sunset on the South Haven Lighthouse

The Lake Michigan Lighthouse workshop was fun and everyone went home with great images. I arrived home yesterday afternoon and started the wind down process from teaching and capturing images. After spending a week on location capturing images it is always difficult trying to select which images to start processing.

The South Haven lighthouse was scheduled for our last evening shoot and ended up being my favorite image. After a stormy day the clouds and light created the amazing conditions for me to capture this sunset image.

The unprocessed image of sunset at the South Haven Lighthouse is stunning but with a few adjustments in Lightroom and Topaz Clarity the image turns into a fine art image.
