One photo a day challenge: Day 93: Today I spent some time at one of our local parks looking for migratory birds to photograph. It is the time of year migratory birds start arriving in and moving through our area in New York. There is a local park right in my home town with a small lake that seems to be a regular stop over for many birds migrating up farther north…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 81. Another beautiful day for bird watching at home. Warm temperatures. Bright sunlight. And Plenty of bird activity. I started off todays post work day birding with a walk around the yard. I wanted to see if there are any bird happenings that I couldn’t observe from the deck. Mourning doves were perched high in a tree. The titmice and black-capped chickadees flitted about the grape… Read More

One phot a day challenge: Day 80. Today was a perfect day for birding. The weather was great. The sun was out. And the birds were active. One of the reasons we chose to live where we do is the access to nature it provides. We have a nice yard with woodlands surrounding us. And we have trees distributed across the yard for birds to move through. We have multiple bird feeders… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 79. The first day of spring was a beautiful day. Got out for a nice run. Checked a lot of things off the to do list. I saw that today was supposed to be nice weather. I tried to plan and be prepared. Seemed like it would be a good day to try to photograph some of the early spring birds that have been showing up… Read More

One photo a da y challenge: Day 72. Today I was able to get out and take photographs multiple times. I have not done that in quite some time. Went for a run with some friends early in the morning. I was able to take my camera with me. Photographed a little of the scenery around the Chemung River. Later I went outside in our yard to play with our dogs. And… Read More

One of the best things about nature is that it can quite literally exist anywhere. It is in the smallest things. And it is in the most mundane things. If we just open our eyes we can find nature. When we think of nature our minds often conjure up images of the grandiose. We think of the impressive, expansive nature that often feels too unattainable. In that we often lose the ability… Read More

Bird near Cayuga Lake

My photography tends to vacillate greatly between very planned photography where I have a subject and location that I will be photographing to basically what I would call adventure photography. Adventure photography is more like I get out in nature and enjoy myself and photograph whatever strikes me creatively or inspires me. Maybe I am exploring a new place and I want to be open to all possibilities. One thing I try… Read More

As and artists and creative person it is very easy to fall into the trap of thinking of photography as something that has to be very intentional and planned out. I am a photographer. I must have a designated subject, location, event, etc. that I want to photograph. That is great and sometimes it works out perfectly. But what is even better than that is to always be prepared. Great opportunities for… Read More

Female Mallard Photograph

Most of the photography gear that I have and use the most are tools that I have had for a long time. I have chosen these particular tools for a reason. I really like the photographs I am able to create with these tools. It doesn’t mean that there are never times I wish I had other tools available to me. For my wildlife photography I mostly use a 300mm lens with… Read More

Often but not always when I venture out to create photographs I have a subject in mind that I would like to try to capture during my time. In some types of photography the subject will always remain the intended subject. If I plan to photograph a waterfall I show up at the location of the waterfall and I photograph it. The way I photograph it might need to change, that is… Read More
