I have a really bad habit of discounting some of the natural beauty that can be found throughout Ohio. Despite having spent the majority of my early life in the state and still living quite close, I rarely ever venture up that way for photography.
So far this year, however, I have spent several weekends shooting some of the waterfalls throughout the Buckeye state. Here’s just a small sampling of what I’ve seen so far.Read More
I’ve been meaning to write about this trip I took on New Years Day for awhile now. Nearly three months into the year isn’t too late, is it?
Anyway, I got 2019 started off right by going to check out two spots in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge that looked curious on LiDAR. In fact, they looked an awful lot like waterfalls!
The result was two newly documented waterfalls. It doesn’t appear that anyone has been to them in quite some time, so it’s likely that we are the first people to photograph them (at least with a digital camera)!Read More
If you haven’t noticed yet, I have a minor obsession with visiting and photographing waterfalls. To be honest, it could probably be classified as a sickness at this point! As such, I recently went to scout out some of the off-trail waterfalls in Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave National Park.
What follows is an overview of that trip and a log of my experiences.Read More
One of the fundamental concepts of photography is that of aperture. Along with the shutter speed and ISO, aperture is part of the exposure triangle that controls the overall exposure of an image. In addition to this, aperture also affects the depth of field in an image. In short, the aperture (which is measured in f-stops) controls two factors:
- The amount of light that is able to reach the image sensor, which in turn controls the image’s overall exposure.
- The depth of field (DOF) of the image. The depth of field is simply how much of your image is in focus. Don’t worry, there will be more of this later on 🙂
By completing this article, you’ll understand what aperture is, how it affects an image’s depth of field and how to select the correct f-stop settings to achieve the optimal depth of field for any given scenario.Read More
I am a huge fan of Gaia GPS. I use it for everything from GPS navigation, to logging my hikes, cataloging the various points of interest I come across on my adventures, and plenty of other things in between. It’s a truly wonderful piece of software, where most things are extremely well thought out and easy to use.
That is, except for adding a custom map source in the IOS version of Gaia.Read More
