iPhoneography as Art

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 19:46:29 +0000

iPhoneography can be art, and a great source of prints. Doodling with the iPhone apps in post-production is also a great way to stave off boredom. Here are two new images! Above: Perigueux Cathedral on a cloudy day (the architect who “remodeled” this cathedral at the end of the 19th century also designed Sacre Coeur […]

Window and Door

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 19:49:54 +0000

Always nice to photograph interesting windows and doors. Window (above) photographed in the back streets of St Emilion, France. Door (below) an iPhone capture in Bordeilles, with the Waterlogue version layered over the original and masked in on the wall (but not the door) using the Leanardo app.

iPhone Workflow in Brantome

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 20:43:34 +0000

To make these images of Brantome Abbey (above) and the so-called “dog-leg” bridge in Brantome (“dog-leg” because there is a 90 degree bend in its crossing of the Dronne River, below)), I started by using the Camera app to make two exposures of each subject, one darker and one lighter.  Next, I combined the two […]

Le Moulin de l’Abbaye

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 12:19:41 +0000

This is Le Moulin de l’Abbaye, the mill of the Abbey, and the hotel we will be based in Brantome, France for exploring the Dordogne countryside. Two different interpretations! Above: 28mm, 4 exposures at shutter speeds from 1.5 seconds to 8 seconds, each exposure at f/22 and ISO 50; tripod mounted; processed in Photoshop. Below: […]

Hang En Campsite

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 22:26:10 +0000

This is the first campsite on the way to Son Doong, just within the entrance to the Hang En cave. The trail leads down the rock slide you see in the foreground to the wooden bridge on the lower right. To get to the campsite, you wade across the underground river. In the rather elaborate […]

Respite, Restoration, Catching Up and Moving On

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 20:15:27 +0000

I got back from Vietnam earlier this week. Tomorrow (Monday) I leave for France. So this has been a brief respite with my family here in California. Maybe time for mind over matter considering the substantial time-zone shifts in two different directions! A time for catching up and being together, and also a time for […]

Tulips and a Clematis Vine

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 19:05:41 +0000

It’s wonderful to be back—if only for a brief while—in the flowering springtime of northern California. It’s always hard for me to resist spending some time photographing flowers, and today was no exception!

Media Coverage; Workshop Opportunities; Way Station between Vietnam and Europe

Fri, 14 Apr 2017 19:06:11 +0000

I’m back this week from Vietnam for a few days to embrace my beloved family, do laundry, archive images—and get ready for the next adventure! On Monday I am off for France, where I’ll be leading a great group of photographers in the beautiful Dordogne countryside, and then next to Malta, where the Malta Photographic […]
