Back in Reykjavic finally, after a fantastic opportunity to travel, shoot and teach with Wild Photography Holidays. On this trip we photographed and hiked glacier lagoons and beaches along the southeast shores of Iceland.

You can see a small selection of my photos from this trip here.

We’re heading to Iceland this afternoon, for what promises to be another great workshop with Wild Photography Holidays!

If you’re thinking of purchasing online videos while I’m gone (until the 10th of June or so…), please remember to read the instructions, and be sure to look for the “Return to Merchant” link on the Paypal confirmation page! I won’t be near e-mail very much during this trip, and so I won’t be able to help you with links right away if you miss the access instruction that is in bright RED text on the purchase pages. :-)

See you in June!

This spring I’m teaching a freshman-level Digital Capture Processing class at my old alma mater, and this week’s assignment was to create an HDR image. Of course one of the assignment requirements is that the dynamic range of the scene you’re photographing must exceed that of your camera’s sensor. As the students tried various things, […]
