Magical Sunset

Magic Sunset

Sunset is my favorite time of the day.  I love the soft colors and pastels, and then the peaceful feeling of dusk.  Sometime the clouds cooperate like in this image, and sometimes they don’t.  The thing is you don’t know if you don’t go.  Each sunset has unique light and part of the fun is …

A picture is worth a 1000 words.

Panorama from student

  I received an email with this image yesterday from Peter Coad, a recent workshop participant.   This is what he said…..  When I see the portrait I see that he used the elements of composition that we worked on turing our day together.  I am so happy to see Peter apply these concepts as …

Sunset workshops are all about the light and motion of the ocean

DSC_5491.web

Sunsets in Maui can be truly breathing. The colors in the sky can be intense beyond words, and sometimes subtle beyond description. Regardless of the quality of light, the way the waves hit the shore can be slowed down allowing motion to become part of the image design.   When you combine light and motion, …

Nature is all around just take a moment and look.

When on a photo tour and workshop in Maui, we tend to concentrate on seascapes, rocky coastline, waves crashing on the beach, sunrises, sunsets, waterfalls, e.t.c., and tend to overlook the obvious.  Photographers benefit from taking their time and looking around.  By doing so interesting compositions and subjects can surprise you.
