Cormorants at Niagara Falls

Sometimes the challenge in creating impactful travel photography is to isolate the photo from the environment. Originally I was taken by many cormorants occupying bare trees along the Niagara River.

Kingston, on the Hudson

Sometimes life throws you fog. When that happens it’s best to get out your camera. For this image, I used the old, trustworthy Nikon N90, Kodak Portra 400 Film, Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens. The camera did a great job of metering a fairly tough image despite the fact that it is more than 30 years …

Winter Photography Bites

I find it very difficult to think up subject matter when I’m not getting enough sunshine.  It’s a winter funk thing.  Still, I can always find something compelling to shoot if I head out to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, New Jersey. The key here is turn off the flash.  Flash = Bad when shooting …
