Winter in the Allentown Rose Garden

Passing by the Allentown Rose Garden the other morning on my way to work, I had to stop for a couple quick images of the fresh snowfall. It was just before sunrise and I was drawn by the subtle blue hour of morning light that glazed over the fresh snow that had fallen over night. Normally I would have just passed by, but I had my trusty Fuji X-T1 sidekick on the front seat of the car. Ever since p...


Hoover Mason Trestle Photography walk

Recently I took a small group of my photography students from Dan's Camera City's Shoot 2 Learn classes to check out the new Hoover Mason Trestle in Bethlehem, PA at the Steelstacks. The walkway takes you high off the ground and close up to a vital piece of American history, allowing for some great photo opportunities. I planned the trip to start just before sunset to give plenty of opportunity f...


A rare Saturday off

Its not very often that I get a Saturday off, especially in October. This past Saturday I did not have a wedding scheduled and my portrait was rescheduled to Sunday since there was rain in the forecast. It turned to be a decent day. My wife and daughter had to work, so I grabbed my Fuji X-T1, my Gitzo tripod and headed out for a hike. If you follow me, you already know I'm in love with my new Fuji...

We are fortunate to have the oldest guitar manufacturer in the world loca...


Longwood Gardens photography workshop: Cabin Fever

After a very long snowy winter, I needed a little reprieve. On Sunday I was co-teaching a macro photography workshop at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. Longwood gardens was featuring an Orchid extravaganza at the time of our trip, an event that I would highly suggest to any macro/flower photographer, as well as any avid floriculturist. Tamron USA, a manufacturer of high quality lenses, has...


Rustic Photography: Sunday at the barn

I must admit that sometimes, more so recently, I don't take photos for myself very often. Maybe its because I have been busy taking photos for others, teaching classes recently, or working around the house; but for whatever reason I need to get back to just me and my camera more often. One of my favorite subjects is rustic photography. Today was a good day to start. I have enjoyed helping my daugh...
