The Last Great Epic Adventure In North Carolina

My friends love to use the word “epic” around me because they know I hate it. Everywhere I turn, I see the word used to describe this photo or that hike. It makes me cringe. I’ve seen a few epic photos—the Wright brothers’ first flight, Armstrong on the Moon, the napalm girl, and my favorite, Read more... you know you want to.

The Wonderful World Of Camera Flash, Flashlights, And Gel Filters

Light painted waterfall

You’re going to have to humor me with this one, folks. I tend to get a little carried away with gel filters. There’s something about all those colors that makes me all tingly inside. For those of you who just want the CliffsNotes version, here you go (Drew Eschbacher, this is for you): Gel filter make photo Read more... you know you want to.

A Night At A Waterfall

When you get a good night at a photo subject, it makes sense to shoot it in as many ways as possible. That’s especially true for some of the waterfalls that I hike to. When the subject is miles away from the nearest road, it’s not like I can just pop over any time I Read more... you know you want to.

Light painting at waterfall

As some of you know, I am presently working on a complete revision to my North Carolina Waterfalls book. The new edition will contain some 800 waterfalls and will have color photos throughout.

My Kind Of Weather For Waterfalls!

Frozen waterfall

I had just about given up hope that my neck of the woods would ever see some decent winter temperatures, but this past week came through for me. By decent, I’m talking chilly.

Waterfalls at Night

Waterfall at night

Here are a couple waterfall shots I took recently. I’m just about to wrap up my new eBook about photographing waterfalls at night and this will be one of the book’s examples. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the sky looks the same in both shots. That’s because the sky is the same in both Read more... you know you want to.

Waterfall and night sky

Here's one more from the Wild Photo Adventures TV show that will airing on PBS this year. I promise, I'll post something other than a waterfall for tomorrow's Nightly Night Photo.
