Tethered Shooting With The Fuji X-T1

Last week Fujifilm quietly released the plugin allowing Fuji X-T1 users to shoot tethered to Adobe Lightroom. I have been patiently waiting for this feature since I switched to Fuji from Canon. So was the wait worth it? For me the answer is yes. When I’m in the studio shooting products or portraits viewing the image on…

Serenity

When it’s near 100 degrees outside and your house doesn’t have air-conditioning the last thing you want to do is sit around in a “warm” room feeling like your life is being sucked out of you minute by minute. Hanging out in the cool car with music playing and the beautiful Oregon Coast scenery in…

Exploring The City Of Seoul

The Streets Of Seoul – Part 2 My day exploring the streets of Seoul continued. After leaving the Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market I grabbed a quick bite to eat from one of the many street vendors and headed to Gwangjang Market. Once again a small misunderstanding between the ticket I purchased from the machine and the gate letting…

Noryangjin Fisheries Wholesale Market

The Streets Of Seoul – Part 1 I truly enjoy traveling and exploring new places but getting to your final destinations can sometimes be a challenge. Flight delays, bad seats, and layovers can make for some really long days. Recently I was returning to Portland from a trip to Vietnam and had a 14-hour layover…

Gyeongbokgung Palace Guard

Royal Guards at Gyeongbokgung Palace

I only had a short visit to Seoul, South Korea but after 24+ hours of being stuck aboard airplanes and in airports the time there was very welcome. Walking around the city was simply amazing. There are so many things to see but with only 8 hours I focused on the Gwanghwamun Square area of the city. One of…

Lingering Fog

Traveling on highway 30 back in to Portland the fog lingering over Sauvie Island was just incredible. I love the mystery fog brings to the landscape revealing just enough to draw in your imagination but leaving you with the question, what’s up ahead? Shot with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 & 35mm lens and edited with Perfect Photo…

Photographs Not Taken

I recently finished reading the book Photographs Not Taken, the book is full of short stories about why photographers didn’t capture the moment and in some cases how it hunts them. It made me think about some of the photographs that I haven’t taken and the reasons why. June 2013 I was in Rome for a…

Endless Rolls

While traveling down a country road recently I came across a seemingly endless run of huge rolls of hay strewn throughout one fenced acreage after another. I pulled to the side of the road to scope out the best vantage points for shooting but everywhere I looked I found I would have to cross a…

Dilapidated Barn

Like every other landscape photographer I know I find it difficult to pass up photographing those stark, old, dilapidated buildings you can see on just about every rural back road in the U.S. I found this one on a recent trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. At least twice a day for nearly a week I would drive…
