Last week I headed to the Delaware shore in search of migrating shorebirds and in particular the Red Knot. I knew the Red knot would be elusive as the reports I had studied on the Cornell University eBird.org showed that they had pushed through earlier in the month. […]
It’s been a busy week and I’ve gone from here to there. In spite of the multiple o-dark-thirty departures, being out in nature certainly made up for the sleep deprivation. Last weekend I had a photography class at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Meeting at the visitors center at […]
Frequently in my photography workshops the topic of Metering comes up. There are situations where you would want to change how your camera measures the light in the scene depending on light conditions. Both of these images were imported into Lightroom and the same import preset was applied. […]
