SNOQUALMIE FALLS

•August 5, 2014 • 2 Comments

Snoqualmie falls is a 268 foot waterfall located on the Snoqualmie river between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington.  It is one of Washington’s most popular scenic attractions, but is perhaps best known internationally for its appearance in the cult television series, Twin Peaks.  This image captures the falls through true nearby trees.  What can be said about a waterfall?  Beautiful just didn’t seem adequate.

I AM BACK…

I have returned from  an extensive photo shoot into the northwest United States.  Do you have any idea how long it takes to drive from Canada to Mexico?…Driving entirely down the coastal highways?  Quite a while!

:)

My first entry for your viewing pleasure and comment is the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse.  This was definitely one of the best restored lighthouse that I saw on the west coast.

This is a mid-summer shot of Balance Rock in the Arches National Park in Utah.  It was a great place to shoot.  But, temperatures were in the 100’s on this particular day.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIP #32 – WHICH POSE?

•April 2, 2014 • Leave a Comment

What’s the one thing I fret about the most when shooting portraits?  It’s the pose!

But in just a few short years, I have learned a few things that has eased my worry.  Take a look at the following poses.  Each has specific differences.

First, a more traditional setting.  This is where all portrait photographers begin.

Next, a separated non-traditional setting.  This where you have the opportunity to think outside the box.  Break the rules.  In fact, experiment with something that would surprise everyone.  After all if it doesn’t work, your client never has to see it.

Finally, keep the camera shooting.  Even when everything seems to fall apart, keep shooting.  Sometimes the candid shots are the best.  As it turned out, this shot was the family favorite of this shoot.

There isn’t a right or wrong pose.  So try them all!

Like this one.  What’s the message here?

Whatever you do, keep shooting!
