Daily Photo – Up and Away. USA.
I was lucky enough to be invited by NASA to the final few launches of the Space Shuttle. Wow that really was one of the most impressive things I’ve ever witnessed. What really surprised me is when the wall of sound hit me and how it shook my skeleton like an earthquake.

Daily Photo – Phoenix City in the Evening
Here in Feng Huang, it’s good to go on a bit of an adventure at night to get the best shots. Then the entire city is very walkable, but there can be a lot of confusing twists and turns. I love getting lost in these old cities because inevitably, you end up finding some incredible photo locations.
Best of Beijing
I thought I would share some of my favorite photos from Beijing here. I went there several years in a row as part of a program. I ended up getting arrested, so I haven’t been invited back. These things happen. Oh, well. At least I got some good photos!
Daily Photo – Returning to China!
I’m excited to come back to China in June. I’ll be in some of the major cities, but I’m also quite excited to visit a few new spots. I’m not sure where I’ll go yet. I reached out to my friend Kevin Kelly, who is quite the demigod in China, to see if he has any suggestions. I’m looking forward to trying out the new bullet train system to go far afield. Whatever happens, I’ll take plenty of photos and share back here on the blog with you.
Sunset Beach Photo Tips
I spend a lot of time taking sunset photos on beaches. It doesn’t mean I’m an expert or anything, but I have a lot of experience with it. Anyway, in this video, I talk a bit about composition and my setup for the shot.
Daily Photo – Wolfgang Thrust
For a fun experiment, we made a fake Instagram account for Tane. I wanted to name him “Wolfgang Thrust,” but in the end, we decided this might cause a bit of bias in the experiment. Anyway, that has very little to do with this photo that I got at the Air & Space Museum in Washington D.C. This last weekend, I went through and started pulling out unprocessed photos from many years ago. This is one of the random ones I chose to process!

Here’s a promo for my new HDR Video Tutorial – I hope you get it and love it! 🙂
Daily Photo – Another Horse In Iceland
Sometimes I think I could make a whole blog just about horses in Iceland. I swear, I have So Many Photos of horses in Iceland, and they’re all pretty good! I can’t take much credit for them, you know, as the horses are just so darned photogenic. And then the whole country has a perfect backdrop… it’s just kind of hard to take a bad photo of them!
Here’s another show recommendation: Billions! It’s a drama based on Wall Street. Sounds kind of boring, I know… but still very entertaining! It’s one of the only shows I watch not on Netflix… it’s on Showtime and maybe a few other places?
Let’s talk about one of my favourite features in Aurora HDR 2018, Image Radiance.
The latest version of Aurora 2018 (for Mac and Windows) is here! I’ve been using it a ton and I think you’ll be blown away by all the new features, especially combined with all the features that you’ve come to know and love with previous versions. If you Pre-Order you’ll get a bunch of goodies as extras and a discount!
Daily Photo – A Painted, Moody day in Feng Huang
I remember at the time I took this that I almost DIDN’T take it. The colors seemed muted, it was quite steamy/foggy/moody, and also, I was quite tired. Maybe I was feeling a bit melancholy or something. Anyway, for whatever reason, I took it. And then, when processing, I recalled the melancholy mood and decided to give it a nudge in that direction.
