I've started taking online photography classes from CreativeLive (I'll include a link at the end of this post if you're interested in checking them out.  I believe the link includes a 15% off coupon.

The reason I selected CreativeLive is because, as the name suggests, t...

Sometimes I like to go into old folders in Lightroom to reminisce about places I've been and things I've seen.  In October 2008 I went to the Tetons for one of my first workshops.  I was shooting with a Nikon D80 at the time.

Several years ago I attended a 1/2 hour class on LAB color.  After the class I went home and immediately tried it on one of my own images - and loved the results - but for some reason I stopped using it.  I recently came across an article regarding LAB color and decide...

Montenegro - I wish we had more time in this breathtaking port.  Mountains, clear blue-green water, ruins, and red tiled roofs.  It was lovely.

Arriving In the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro, we sailed past Our Lady of the Angel church and lighthouse.

We were treated to...

The first port on our cruise was Dubrovnik, Croatia.  In Dubrovnik we rode on a cable car to the top if this hill where we were treated to this amazing view of Old Town Dubrovnik, that is totally surrounded by it's original medieval walls.  There is a wonderful visitor...

The main entrance to St. Mark's Basilica.

My favorite building in Venice - the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.

A new sculpture was installed in the Grand Canal since...

When visiting Venice, make sure to plan a morning visiting the island of Burano.  Burano is known for its lace, but for photographers the draw is the brightly colored buildings, cobblestone streets, and reflections in the canals.  Get up early in the morning and catch...

Well, our cruise has almost come to an end.  Sadly we must pack our bags tonight, as we'll be arriving in Venice tomorrow where we'll spend the night in Murano, and start our long trip home.  It's with mixed emotions that I'm leaving Europe.  We saw so many beautiful s...

After returning from Burano, we had a quick lunch and retired to the room for a siesta.  I awoke late afternoon to a storm brewing over the city.  The wind picked up and vendor paintings and parasols started flying around the waterfront.  The light started peaking unde...
