Cuban Ballerinas

_DSF6455

I just returned from Cuba, where our group had the opportunity to photograph two premier Ballerinas, at a wonderful old mansion in Havana.  To say this was an extraordinary photographic opportunity, would be an understatement.  I told my wife, it was likely the most fun I’ve ever had making images. The setting was perfect and the two Ballerina dancers beautiful. This type of photography is very much outside of my comfort zone, but, I learned so much and had a blast!  I can’t wait to do it again.

Below is just a taste of what I was able to capture.  More to come!

I am working on dates for next year where this shoot will be included once again!  If you have interest in joining me, write me an email and I’ll add you to a list to be notified once my dates are set.

As a side note. All images made with the Fuji X-T2 with either the 56mm 1.2, 35mm 1.4 or 23mm 1.4 lenses.

Smoky Mountains Workshop

_dsf1607

I just finished co-leading a workshop with Rad Drew in The Great Smoky Mountains.  When Rad and I met last weekend, the trees were predominantly green with little if any color to be found.  Suffice it to say, we were a bit anxious about the potential for color.  Then on Tuesday, the day we started, things started to change, and, by the time we finished the week, the color was glorious! 

After a much needed nap when the workshop ended, I decided to head out along Little River Road to see what I might find. The two images in this post are a result of my afternoon out. This scene got better and better as we drove by it each day.  Today it was screaming with color and offered a number of compositions. The top image was made as the sun was setting giving me gold light on the background trees.  The bottom image was made about an hour later, in softer light with no sun on the scene at all.

Grateful to have been in this wonderful park with Rad and a terrific group!

Rad and I will be doing this workshop again next fall. We will begin taking deposits in November.  Rad and I will be doing a workshop together in the Palouse in May.  Hope to see you at one or the other or both!

Cades Cove and Amazing Light!

 

 

_dsf1145-edit

Rad Drew and I are finishing our pre-tour scouting as we get ready for our group to arrive today.  Yesterday we decided to end our day in Cades Cove. I’ve been to Sparks Lane many times, and, each time is just as magical. This time was no different, in fact, it might have been the most amazing light I’ve ever seen at this location. Poor Rad must have been annoyed, as I exclaimed out loud over and over again… THIS LIGHT IS INSANE!

I will be back in the Smokies in the spring and Rad and I will be doing this workshop again next fall!  We will have the details up on our websites when we finish here. You can see the details for my spring workshop here.
