If you missed my live presentation, “How to Photograph a Lunar Eclipse” is now posted on my YouTube channel. You’ll learn all my secrets for camera settings for getting great photos of the moon and the upcoming “Super Blood Moon” eclipse!
When I find myself overwhelmed or just need a burst of creativity, I look no further than using a deliberate pan blur, or “swipe” to create an abstract photograph. The idea behind a swipe is to use a relatively long exposure and move the camera either up/down or left/right while dragging the shutter. I find that with the right subjects, I can create some pretty fun images!

When we hit the road, photographers are often faced with less than ideal conditions for photography. Often times, we can’t be at a location at the perfect time of day, or with the perfect weather and light. However, the well-prepared photographer knows how to work within the confines of the conditions at hand, and has a virtual camera bag that helps them deal with a variety of lighting conditions. In this presentation, I discuss how I’ve learned to adapt to a variety of conditions in the field and still come away with creative photographs by using both in-camera and post-processing techniques.
