I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about watching a man fish. I’m not much of a fisherman myself, despite many attempts and the ample patience of a very capable brother-in-law. Yet the sight of a lone fisherman … Continue reading
It’s the ‘happiest place on Earth’ and my own prior experience there would essentially agree. But this time, Main Street U.S.A was filled with disappointed children and frustrated parents. The rains fell and they fell hard. The task called for … Continue reading
Those instructions can be found on just about every bottle of shampoo on the shelf, and I always thought the “repeat” part of the instructions was just to get us to buy more shampoo. So I don’t repeat. But when … Continue reading
2 Guys Photo readers may recall that for the Fujfilm X100, it was not exactly love at first sight. If you run a quick search on this site (search bar is over to the right) you’ll no doubt see my … Continue reading
Thanks to everyone who visited this post earlier today. In it, I mentioned how I had struggled with the proper way to crop and Rob asked that I show the other version. So, here you go. I would love to … Continue reading
Sometimes you find the most interesting things in the least expected places. We were walking the boardwalk at the beach, and were surrounded by sea and sand, and seagulls, when I happened to look at the top of the bath … Continue reading
Of all the types of photography I’ve experienced, informal portraits are my favorite. I really enjoy capturing a person or group in their “natural surroundings” relaxed, being themselves. I was just reading an article in Popular Photography titled “7 Pro … Continue reading
I have no doubt that “In the footsteps of Ansel” is as cliche as it comes, but that’s all I could think of as I made my way through some of the meatier trails in Yosemite. I expect that Mr. … Continue reading
Waiting for a bus, or waiting for a new day, some of us look ahead, some look back.
I’m a big, big believer in the adage that it’s better to “get it right in camera” and also that “you can’t make a good photo out of a bad one“… but that never stops me from trying. The above … Continue reading
This seagull soared gracefully overhead during a pre-season visit to the beach. Using a Nikon 18-200 zoom lens on my D90, zoomed out fully, at a large aperture of f/5.6 and a quick shutter of 1/2000s, I was able to … Continue reading
This is a personal fave. Not because of the subject (there really is none), not because the light is special (though the glow off the road is nice), and not because there’s any kind of unique technique on display (unless … Continue reading
This week, DPReview ran this post on finding wildlife opportunities for macro photography, (more on that in a bit), and I was reminded of some recent “wildlife” I got up close and personal with. I had just parked my car … Continue reading
This azalea was captured the same day as Monday’s foliage and Wednesday’s iris, right after a drenching spring rain. Canon SX230 HS, f/5.6, 1/320s, ISO 640.
The slow shutter speed pan is nothing new, but I can’t help myself every time I spot one of these yellow gems in Times Square. Which is quite often. I’ve played around in post with various adjustments to intensify the … Continue reading
Continuing on the theme of Monday’s post, I spotted this iris in a neighbor’s front yard after a rain and it stopped me in my tracks. Despite the still overcast day, this flower radiated life and hope. Canon SX230 HS, … Continue reading
Bar Harbor, Maine. Twilight and a willing subject. I waited around to see if he caught anything, but it was a long time in waiting. So I abandoned my post.
Every growing thing looks better after the rain. First in a series of three related photos, (watch Wednesday and Friday of this week also). Canon SX230 HS, f/4.5, 1/100 sec., ISO 125.
A few days ago, I came upon the work of photojournalist Scott Strazzante of the Chicago Tribune, which I thought I’d share with you, perhaps to enjoy with your morning coffee. Scott hosts a photography blog within the Tribune’s website … Continue reading
I’ve been wracking my brain… (or is it racking my brain?). Took this in Florida a few years ago and have been trying to find the name of this beautiful flower since. Wondering if any 2 Guys Photo readers can … Continue reading
