Fireworks Fun

Twenty years ago this Memorial Day weekend, my wife and I were married. To celebrate, we made reservations to spend a little time at Big Cedar Lodge in the Ozarks, one of the premier resorts in the area. As an anniversary trip, I swore to leave computer, computer books, Photoshop books and all things digital (except a camera, of course!) at home.

Photographers are Lemmings. Well, Maybe not All…

Instead of thinking about going into DC and photographing the Cherry Blossoms when they're in bloom; today I actually did it. And from the number of other folks there, I was not the only one who decided to get up at an ungodly hour to shoot them at sunrise. So what's a photographer to do when you arrive with the excitement and the anticipation of creating some really cool photos and find the pristine view littered with tripods?

Nature Photography Seminars

Do you love to shoot nature photography? I know that I love to travel and get up before sunrise to shoot a cool landscape or the dew on a flower. It's a great way for me to shoot things I normally don't cover, but there are guys out there that do it everyday that are exceptional at their craft. One of those is Daniel J. Cox.
