What Readers Are Saying

I thoroughly enjoy each Newsletter (InFocus Nature Photography Newsletter). They have all been interesting and informative. I love the photos I’ve seen and the text describing how the shot was made. I’ve especially enjoyed seeing and reading how the light has changed the photo, or how the different approach of Jay and Varina to the same location will result in photos that can be dramatically different.

6 Traits of a Great Nature Photographer

What does it take to become a great nature photographer? Is it the equipment or talent? What about knowledge? There are countless articles, videos, and classes you can take to learn the technical and creative aspects of nature photography. According to Grant Collier, instruction can only take you so far. You also need to possess certain personality traits.

Fall Nature Photography from Brandywine Falls, Cuyahoga National Park, OH

Post Processing Low Contrast Photos

This shot of Brandywine Falls is a fantastic example of the lovely fall foliage in Northeast Ohio. The scene is all about vibrant colors, but originally it lacked contrast and fell flat. Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever been really excited to review shots from a trip only to find that your camera failed to capture the scene as you remembered it?

How to Use Your Camera’s Histogram

After you become familiar with ISO, aperture and shutter speed and how these three parameters of exposure work together, you’ll be well on your way to turning haphazard snapshots into creative works of art. But there’s one more tool that we think is absolutely essential for getting the best possible exposure in the field: your camera’s histogram.
