This website lists the landscape photography lectures I have developed, for beginning
and intermediate photographers, and is designed for desktop or laptop viewing, but not
mobile devices. If you wish to see a list of lectures, click on Lectures
from the Home page. Clicking on a specific lecture will then lead you to a lecture detail page that
shows the main topics to be discussed.
If you wish to schedule a lecture, go to the Contact link at the bottom of this page,
or select Contact from the Home page. On the Contact page will be displayed the information
for a lecture presentation, including my speaker fee, and email address. Once your organization has agreed to
a presentation, send me an email and prior to the lectures I will send you a PDF of the
course notes text which you can then copy and distribute to your membership.
The other function of What’s New is to list the announcement of newly developed lectures, or any other changes
to the website, with the most recent items at the top of the list. From here you can scroll down to the
Lectures link below to see the lecture topics.
01-22-20. I have revised the direction and intent of my Retrospective lecture,
and it is now titled Think Global, Shoot Local. This lecture explores the advantages of shooting in
your local area, whether it be your backyard, your city block, state parks, or your state. The new lecture
title is shown on the Home page.
12-31-19. The last shot of the year taken on New Year's Eve from Elizabeth Park
in Hartford. This image was originally an 8x24 pano, but center-cropped to fit on the home page. There are
two fireworks displays this night; one at 6pm and the other at midnight. Given that I'll probably be asleep
at midnight, this was taken at the earlier show with a Nikon 80-400/5.6 at 270mm on a tripod.
12-02-19. Although we have experienced our first snowfall in Connecticut, I'm not
ready yet to let go of Autumn. This new home page image was taken of a tree across from my house. It is an
early morning shot with a polarizer using a Nikon 17-35/2.8 at 20mm on a tripod.
11-04-19. After almost 16 years of having this website, I finally have posted
a portrait of myself on the About page. It was taken by my wife, Michele, in our backyard in front of a
blue spruce we affectionately call 'Baby Blue'.
11-03-19. Sometimes you don't have to travel far to get a nice foliage
image. This home page image was taken in my backyard with a Sigma 12-24/4 Art lens at 12mm. The colors
say it all.
10-19-19. A new lecture has been added:
Photo123 - Every Image Tells a Story. It is a 50-Year Retrospective of my landscape photography.
09-07-19. With autumn around the corner, the Home Page image is of Wood Creek Pond
in Norfolk, CT, taken in 2008 with a Nikon D300.
09-03-19. The website has recevied its security certificate from Network Solutions.
The logo is now displayed on the home page.
08-31-19. Two new lectures have been added:
Photo 102 - Introduction to White Balance
Photo 117 - Demystifying Depth of Field
Also, two lectures have been revised and updated:
Photo 108 - Using Telephoto Lenses
Photo 118 - Tripods and Their Use in Landscape Photography
08-22-19. The image on the Home page is of Dennis Hill State Park in Norfolk taken in 2004.
