Beyond The Campfire was created to encourage readers to explore the great outdoors and to observe it close up. Get out and take a hike, go fishing or canoeing, or simply stretch out on a blanket under a summer sky...and take your camera along. We'll talk about combining outdoor activities with photography. We'll look at everything from improving your understanding of the basics of photography to more advanced techniques including things like how to see photographically and capturing the light. We'll explore the night sky, location shoots, using off camera speedlights along with nature and landscape. Grab your camera...strap on your hiking boots...and join me. I think you will enjoy the adventure.

Insights: The Soft Light Before Sunrise

When the gray of winter arrives and frost settles across the land, I often reflect on the warmer days of summer’s past.  There are but a few true iconic moments I can remember, moments that stirred my soul into greater understanding - none more prominent - none more lasting - than times spent floating above the mirrored waters of a gentle lake . . . in the soft light before sunrise.
