Shooting in Fog or Mist to Capture Lighting Effects

Tomorrow morning I leave for the Hawaiian island of Oahu. I'll be gone for a week enjoying the sun, surf, forests, and beaches of the North Shore. Tough life, I know. But before I go, I wanted to leave you with a tutorial over on Cambridge in Color on How to Take Photos in Fog, Mist or Haze. It could come in handy as summer gives way to fall over the next month, and the dawn hours begin to fill up with fog.

Now, did I remember to pack everything?

Way Beyond Monochrome is on the way...

Just got an email this morning from Ralph W. Lambrecht, one of the authors of the book Way Beyond Monochrome. He says that, "...the books are on the boat from Hong Kong to the US right now, which means the official release date of Oct, 15th will be held."

Shooting in Golden Gate Park with Jose & Emily

This weekend Jose and me ran out to Golden Gate park with our friend Emily for a portrait session. I love getting together with Jose, he's just such a wonderful source of inspiration and I get to push myself into doing different things artistically. I'm not really a portrait photographer, so this is a refreshing break once in awhile.
