    How to Shoot HDR Images

    Let’s get a little deeper into image creation. You’ll notice that I didn’t say photography. While there are hundreds of books written on photography, there are far less on the subject of HDR post-processing. If you don’t know, HDR means ‘high dynamic range’. As discussed in a previous article, your camera has much less ‘dynamic […]

    The Basics of Photography

    I’ve been getting questions lately asking for more technical details about some of my photographs. Let me begin this article with a quote. This is something that my photography instructor used to say when asked if a particular photo was “good”.  He would say; “If you like what you’ve created, then it’s good.” To be […]

    2019… A New Chapter

    It may seem odd to start this story with a look back, but I don’t like to just jump into the middle of something. Way back in 1990, my wife surprised me with gift…. a new product on the market = a camcorder!  Back then, the camcorders were as big as the cameras now used […]

    This past Labor day weekend, my wife Mendy and I traveled again to New York to visit our daughter (Ashley) and her boyfriend (Ian). They’ve moved since our last visit from Staten Island to Newark, NJ. So, it was a different commute. We got off of the plane and onto an ‘Air Train’  then the […]

For example, while still considered a photography tool, I’m involved with UAVs (commonly known as drones) […]

    Drama at Dusk

    I’ve said it before, sunrise and sunset photography is always a gamble. A sky full of clouds can go clear right at sunset – it’s crazy! I was watching the sky, off and on, most of the day. I finally decided to go ahead and go out to see what I could get. I left […]

    You CAN do it too!

    “Two men took a boat to the lighthouse in 2008 and climbed to the top of the lighthouse. As they started to descend, the ladder broke, stranding them in the tower. Fortunately, one of the men had a cell phone and called for help. Firefighters soon arrived, and, after having to swim across the inlet […]

  • Hope


    When my siblings and I were in high school, there was a nursery (a plant store) up on the highway. It was only a couple of blocks from my parent’s home, but I never visited the store. I was young after all and had little need for plants. Still, it was a fixture and a […]
