The Star Voyager

The Star Voyager

Well Happy Mother's Day everyone!  I hope its been a nice day and you've been able to spend time with family.  If you know me and my family, then there's a bit of an Easter egg here in my Star Voyager image that ties it to Mother's Day, otherwise you'll just have to...

Sending Off the Winter Milky Way

Sending Off the Winter Milky Way

It's not the camera - until it is. I am super excited to share this series of images with you over the next couple of weeks because for me they represent an advancement in technology.  I have tried and tried to capture the Orion Nebula and the greater Orion...

Along Lynn Camp Prong

Along Lynn Camp Prong

For my last image in the series, I of course wanted to end on a stream scene (yes, I realize its an obsession).  I actually discovered this little scene while I was exploring Lynn Camp Prong with my friend Chad.  At first it looked unassuming, but the more I looked at...

A Seat in the Snow

A Seat in the Snow

Like the image from the very first of this series, this week's image was taken in my own yard.  We were blessed here in East Tennessee to have a couple of pretty little snows this past winter, and this snowy scene struck me as I was walking around looking for photos. ...

Foggy Morning at Benton Falls

What a day this was!  Several weeks back, Holly and I decided to go for a short drive down to Benton to see Benton falls, and MAN was it foggy!  I hadn't been in foggy conditions like that in some time - scary to drive in, but really neat to explore the falls.  Holly...

Hey! Get outta my shot!

Hey! Get outta my shot!

Ah, just flip it to black and white. If I'm honest, this is usually my approach to black and white photography.  If I take a picture in color, and it doesn't work for some reason, I'd always try flipping it to black and white to see how it looked.  In retrospect, this...

Hanging Out with the Milky Way

Hanging Out with the Milky Way

Sometimes you make something, because you think it'll be entertaining... and then you end up loving it. Mid-way through the year last year I got invited to join the Tristar Adventures ambassador program, which has opened up some opportunities to meet and collaborate...

The Dark Horse Rising

The Dark Horse Rising

Let's learn something together! I mentioned in last week's post that I have been experimenting with shooting the Milky Way at tighter and tighter focal lengths.  I used to think that 24mm was as tight as you could get and still practically have a foreground, but then...
