Photo Walk at Deerfield

I thought it might be fun to create a video of a photo walk. I was out at a local nature park on a winter morning (okay, it was spring, but Michigan doesn’t always behave like the season suggests). In the video, I offer some tips for photographing in the winter, and more specifically in an area like Central Michigan. I also talk a little bit about composition.

Check it out and let me know what you think…


I was on a trip to Puerto Rico visiting the Castillo de San Cristóbal and came across this scene.  This hallway was part of the soldier barracks, which were interesting to see in their own right.  We went on a day when not a lot of tourists were there, so the mood was quiet and peaceful.

The cloudy day made for some really soft light coming in through the windows, which was perfect for the off-white textured walls.

This photo was taken on the Grand Bahama island in the Caribbean.  I give my wife credit for telling me to go back and grab a picture of this boat after we drove by.  I went back to find just how amazing the scene was.  The contrast between the wreck of a boat and the pristine surroundings was what piqued my interest.
