Muench shot-2


I learned a valuable lesson from David Muench who is well known for using a large dominent foreground object to establish depth, in this case the object is the subject.

The paper birch trunk provides a leading line and a foreground object in this forest bottom shot made in the Acadia Garden in Acadia National Park.

Sometimes a subject that is masked creates a mystery and a desire to “see more.”  You don’t have to see all the details to get the “picture”,  poor play on words!

At other times a great intense color shot can fill the bill!




On some occasions shapes can carry the day.

Sometimes the absence of color can make the grapic elements really stand out!

Control of the background allows your subject to stand out with out distractions!

Timing is everything.




Hang out at airports and you may meet someone interesting!  That’s Harrison Ford with his DeHavilland Beaver in Jackson, Wyoming.

Spring is upon us and starting to be in all it’s glory.  I love the rush of greens in all their hues.  Just for fun I went out yesterday and shot a number of images all with the Fujifilm X-T2 and the 100-400 lens.
