“AutumnIsAroundTheCorner” Day (Morning Musings for 8/18/14) (5 comments)
Edie, I’m certain that you do know these signs and feelings! Oddly, when I’m in the Sierra, the autumn wildfire smoke is probably one of the signals — that is a regular thing that time of year, alternately scary and aggravating and sometimes produ [...]

Oaks and Grass, Late Summer (2 comments)
Thanks, Karl. These hills and oaks and grasses always remind me of how much I enjoy shooting subjects with which I have developed a long and intimate relationship. (I also like photographing the unfamiliar, but it is a very different kind of photogra [...]

Monolith, Trees, and New Snow (2 comments)
Thanks for the comment, Craig! This subject provides some “interesting” compositional challenges. The subject is, of course, a long ways away from the camera position. The coloration of the face of Half Dome is actually quite subtle, and color balanc [...]

Thoughts About the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS Lens (16 comments)
Hi Dan,
I will be visiting Yosemite in November and am hoping to rent a little more reach than what I have currently available. Have you had any experience with the 2x range extender? I was considering renting the 100-400 but I now think I may rent [...]

Lens Protection: Ultraviolet (UV) Filter or Lens Cap and Hood? (63 comments)
Hi, Mike:

I don’t live in such a place, but I frequently shoot in Death Valley and along the Pacific coastline, where similar issues can arise. There are a few things to consider here.

First, if you are shooting with a sealed body camera, such as [...]

Is It Ever Too Early To Dream of Aspen Color? (2 comments)
Wayne, I’m hoping to be able to get to Utah at some point during the color season there this fall — though that could encompass anything from the aspens near the end of September through the lower elevations color that comes much later. We’ll see!

Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L II vs. 24-70mm f/4L IS vs. 24-105mm f/4 L IS (47 comments)
I did not use the first version of the 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens, so I cannot offer a comparison based on my own experience. If the original version of the lens is working well for you it probably makes sense to keep using that one since the new lens is n [...]

Going Out, Slowly (10 comments)
Thanks, Steve.

I think that sometimes we are worried that if we are not constantly and perhaps even superficially busy that we might get bored or that we might not be accomplishing anything or that we could be wasting our time. But it is possible [...]

Why I like DSLR Live View Shooting (24 comments)
Thanks for stopping by and for sharing your experience with live view and with the 3rd-party lenses. You make a good point that for folks who like to shoot these alternative lenses and work from the tripod, live view really lets you take full advanta [...]

Updated Thoughts on Canon Ultrawide Zoom Lenses (2 comments)
All good points, Jerry. I’ll try to address them and more after I have a chance to put the lens through its paces in the next few weeks, and perhaps I’ll share some initial impressions sooner than that.

While I understand why IS is so often helpfu [...]

A Blog Milestone Approaches – Close to 1,000,000 (5 comments)
I had thought about doing some sort of special print offer — perhaps one or two special images in a size or two at a significant discount…

Let me give that some thought.

Reader Question: Concerned About Image Theft (2 comments)
Excellent points, Bob. I wasn’t sure that I wanted to go to far into copyright issues in an article that was mainly about the concerns versus value of sharing photographs online.

People often confuse “registering” copyright with possessing it. As so [...]

Thanks, Ernie. I see that you found a bunch of the photos. (There are quite a few more coming, too. I now have over 5000 frames of these two groups!)

At some point I will share a post or two with some things I have learned about photographing music [...]

Mining Relic, Death Valley (4 comments)
Dan, It’s a great image. I was also reminded, by the two “celestial bodies”, however vaguely, of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”. That might be a stretch, but that’s where it took me. Caponigro talks about the elements of composition being line, shape, p [...]

Industrial Building, Mixed Lighting (2 comments)
Jerry, the color palette in this photograph is one of the oddest that I’ve come up with at Mare Island, a place where unusual combinations of light sources are the rule more than the exceptions. (Although… as I’ve written recently, with the install [...]
