I took my new Panasonic GH4 system to Ireland and loved it. Much lighter to carry everything from 7.5mm Fisheye (all lenses double in length on GH4, so really 15mm) to the 100-300 (think handholdable 200-600)! Batteries lasted much better than I thought and the new SanDisk 32GB Extreme PRO SDHC UHS-II cards are a […]


Ireland: Sheep and Rock Walls

BMC-20130522-_D4A6851

No. Ireland is not all sheep and rock walls. But in our first day in Ireland, Rebecca and I saw so many sheep and so many rock walls ( the most common accident to cars in Ireland is get too close to a rock wall and taking off the passenger mirror. If you don’t believe […]

Creative Photography Page 5: Multiple Exposure Rotate

BMC-20130522-_D4A7097

Today’s technique will expand your multiple exposure toolbox.. This one is rather simple but it does require a lens with a tripod collar. (Sometimes, I’ll show you one freehand shot with 16mm fisheye!) To use this technique, find a subject you like ( bright colors and striking patterns work well). Compose your image. Now, set […]

Creative Photography Page 3: Multiple Exposure Monet

BMC-20130521-_D4A6207

Claude Monet had a way of expressing his subjects with a subtleness of brush stoke that still captivates me. Maybe that is why I have fallen in love with this photographic technique that allows me to capture a feeling of time or place with a subtleness of a Monet painting.. This is actually using the […]

BMC-20130522-_D4A6975

  Image above from trip to Ireland. So I have been using my Nikon VRII f4.5-5.6 80-400 quite a bit since it arrived (70-200 is crying from neglect on my shelf while I explore my new lens). It has travelled around the Southern Appalachians, the Cumberland Plateau, Death Valley and Ireland. I love having the […]


Ireland: my car experience

We all would like to be as creative as possible when taking images. Sometimes you just don’t feel the creative juices flowing and it seems that your images are bland. Any time I travel to a new place, it talks a day or 2 or 3 before the novelty of newness wears off and I […]
