I took some creative license when I worked on this image from Cannon Beach, OR. The swirling waves resulted from using a 0.5s exposure with my Nikon Z 7II mounted on a tripod. However, I chose to also blur the clouds in Photoshop to create a pseudo long-exposure look. What do you think?
Due to a late cancellation, I’ve got an opening for my photo safari to South Dakota June 2-6th. I will be joined by Deborah Sandidge as a co-instructor for this immersive landscape photography experience in some pretty amazing environments.
In addition to photographing some amazing locations, we’ll also have classroom time, where Deborah and I will teach you the art of creative post-processing. We’ll cover black and white, HDR, and infrared photography. Speaking of IR photography, we’ll be bringing a few extra IR-converted cameras for you to use on the workshop!

I just got back from a brief trip to Death Valley National Park. One of the best locations in the park is the large dune field near Stovepipe Wells. It had been very windy the day before, so the dunes were swept clean and free of footprints.
I had some time yesterday to go on a brief hike in Garden of the Gods park before a spring storm rolled in. Here’s a three-shot hand-held HDR bracket with the Nikon D4 (±2EV) that I tone-mapped in HDR Efex Pro and finished off with Color Efex Pro 4.0 in Photoshop.
