Camp Deerhorn Lodge

I attended Camp Deerhorn in the early 1970s as a camper.  Recently I had the pleasure of sharing the camp experience with my son.  He/we had a blast! Normally at home I wake up early (4:00AM) each day and while at Deerhorn it was no different.  I captured these images while the camp was still... Continue Reading →

What Makes for a Stronger Composition I

This will be a series of audio posts where I discuss the compositions of seven images from my very first one-man photography show at Kent State University in 1981.  I'll talk about what makes for a stronger image.  How we read an image.  How cropping your image is as important as when the image was...

Sands in Monterey

I have yet another grouping of images I captured while I was in Monterey CA.  As I was walking back from capturing some surf images, I noticed a section of sand with some great natural flow patterns.  Very graceful and organic.                     JSH

My Brady Bunch Hood

I think most photographers are compelled to capture images that interests them, if not why photograph it?  I live in a neighborhood that was developed in the late 1970's.  I call it the Brady Bunch Hood.  The following are images I captured on a recent weekend.  It had rained lightly before dinner and the air...

Clouds 2001

In 2001 I had a daily commute of 50 minutes to go 50 miles.  Not bad when you compare it to others who commute 50 minutes to go half that distance.   On my way home during the winters I saw some great sunsets and clouds that were lit-up by the setting sun.  I took these... Continue Reading →

Organic – Revised 2019

When I left Hollywood and Elmi Graphics in 1988 I landed in Kent, Ohio.  I was making soft images at the time using various techniques.  One of those techniques was pin-hole photography, which I call Organic.  I called it Organic because there was nothing artificial, man-made, between the scene and the film. Get it!?  It... Continue Reading →

Monterey Structures

I had a blast in Monterey!  I am so pleased with the variety of photographs, from contemporary color, to classic B&W, to abstract photography.  After I visited the Weston Gallery in Carmel-by-the-Sea I recall my early days of photographing with B&W film.  The internet not to mention computers were not around.  I studied the books...

Retrospective I

As I look back over my 40+ years of taking photographs, I have many different styles.  From studying other photographers, I noticed many have one style or a style that progresses over time.  Maybe my body of work reflects the countless of times I have come back to photography only to find I could not...

Grand Canyon – Rock Walls

These are many of the photographs I took of the rock walls along Bright Angels Creek.  Most of the photographs were taken close to the wall and a few were taken from across the creek.  So much of the rock has silica which makes the image look grainy.  I was fascinated with the variety of...

Keep Practicing

I find that when I keep practicing, keep taking photographs, I get better.  So what if the subject or composition are not unique.  It's a matter of did you execute the photograph well.  Is the subject interesting and well composed.  Photography to me is fun!  If I'm not exploring where I am by taking photographs,...

Trunks 2018

Never underestimate the potential of a dreary day. Remember my post “Montana Road Trip II (part 3)“?  I had driven back to Glacier National Park in hopes of catching some autumn color but I was met with a the most dreary day.  It had me very depressed that I would not find anything worth photographing. ...

Ferns 2018

Remember my post "Montana Road Trip II (part 3)"?  I had driven back to Glacier National Park in hopes of catching some autumn color but I was met with a the most dreary day.  It had me very depressed that I would not find anything worth photographing.  Boy, was I wrong. The super gray lighting... Continue Reading →

Snow Tire

After one of Denver's weekend snows, I went for a walk.  The was fresh enough and the day young enough that only a couple of people left their tracks in the snow.  Someone on one of those mountain bikes with the mega fat tire had broken the trail.  The snow was of the perfect consistency...

Grand Canyon, The Hike Out

Knock-knock, “It’s 5:00” and the door shuts.  For a couple of minutes, I laid there to finish my slumber and to visualize my hike out.  My visit had been nice but I was ready to head back.  Two other dorm mates were getting ready for the 5:30 breakfast so I got up washed, dressed and...
