Captuing the night sky will be part of the Southwest workshop November 7-11 2015

I had a short window of time during the 2014 Zion workshop to capture a few star images last year. During the 2015 Southwest workshop November 7-11 the moon will not be out at night and we will have dark skies which will be perfect for capturing the star filled western skies.

While on location some of the fun in an image is caused by people interacting with the environment. The foreground of this image was lit by the interior lights of a car while a family had their evening meal while enjoying the night sky. The interior lights from their car lit up the foreground hills in my 30sec exposure.

Madonna’s protect Roman neighborhoods

When I explore the ancient neighborhoods of Rome I am always delighted to find the the lovely Madonna and child that have protect the locals as they travel the streets. Each neighborhood has it’s own unique and beautiful protectors and I have photographed many of them over the years. It is hard to pass them by without taking to enjoy and photograph them.

Lightroom is a very efficient processing tool for all my basic processing. After lightroom I used Topaz Impressions to give it a painterly effect and make the colors pop.

Shake off the Winter Blues!! Plan a Tuscan photo workshop May 4-8 2015

For me January is a cold month in Michigan but it is also one of the only times in the year where I have time to work on Images for the Art Fairs and plan the location workshops which helps keep away the winter blues. This is the image I have as a screen saver that helps keeps my spirits high. It is not one that I took myself yet, it is an image from an apartment that I will be staying in with clients while teaching the Tuscan workshop May 4-8 2015 It might just be the thing to shake off those mid winter blues.

Afterglow at the Florian, San Marco Piazza, Venice

Christmas is wonderful but it can be a little sad after all the festivities are over so I hope you can join me at the Caffè Florian in Saint Marks Square in Venice for the afterglow party in April.
