While scouting Chicago for next year’s Digital Underground photo tour, we stopped at Millennium Park to visit the ever-popular Cloud Gate sculpture (a.k.a., The Bean). Talk about a place for selfies! Everyone was doing them, so I decided to join in the fun.
I set my Nikon D810 on my Gitzo tripod near the ground, and used my Nikon 16-35mm f/4 AFS G VR lens. I used the self-timer feature to capture this shot. It took a few tries to get a good one.
Have fun out there! I’m heading off to fabulous Las Vegas for a Digital Underground tour this week.
Join the Digital Underground as we explore creative urban photography!
I’m pleased to announce the addition of two new Digital Underground instructional photo tours for spring and summer 2015. I will be co-hosting these small group (10 max) tours with Deborah Sandidge. Each day, we’ll cover interesting locations within the city, explore creative techniques, and provide feedback and critique. If you’re looking to get creative with travel photography, these workshops are not to be missed.

We roll into the Windy City in the summer of 2015 to capture the amazing art and architecture of Chicago. We’ll start with an architectural boat tour along the Chicago River.
