NORTHCENTRAL WASHINGTON -- In the foreground, some smo'ke'shin; in the background, the Enchantments, an area of the North Cascades. Check out the Outdoors page for more HDR images of smo'ke'shin, the edible plant that blooms for the cool Northwest spring.
MONTANA -- A technique to add new perspective on active subjects is to shoot for a blurred image rather than a sharp image. By slowing the shutter you're hoping to capture an image that still conveys the subject you're shooting, but blurs in a way that shows you the action. And hopefully, above all, is interesting.
Lessons from old bird photos
WASHINGTON STATE -- As a hungry young photographer in the year of 2007, I sought wildlife and found mostly birds as a subject. Back then I was in the practice stage of my learning career. Looking back on these photos, I can learn and hopefully share some insights I have gained through the years. In this middle of February--a bleak time for wildlife in my part of the world--I want to post some photos and explore what I've learned. Check out the "Wildlife" page for more information.
Two birds!... About as exciting as a double rainbow
EASTERN WASHINGTON -- It takes an incredible amount of time and patience to get good raptor pictures; and when two of them reward your efforts with a double whammy shot, you'll have a permanent bragging piece. Look at the WILDLIFE page at the "Double Bird Shots" entry.
WENATCHEE NATIONAL FOREST -- I snapped a few good photos in the Enchantments a few weeks ago. This photo was added July 5, 2012. I will be in Oregon for a few days and after that I'll add some more Enchantment photos to the categories above.
