Welcome to my photography blog, where I share artistic techniques that I use to create my artwork. These include items to look for when out in the field, in-camera functions that are applied when capturing an image, and post-processing methods that turn ordinary photos into fine art photography. I also discuss how to make use of various photographic tools, from our eyes and camera equipment to software, to transform our world’s canvas into art pieces. Please join me on virtual photo journeys as I share my photography outings, both locally and on travels far from home.
