Ghost Rocks

My favorite use of long exposure isn’t waterfalls, but waves on a regular beach. I love what it does for waves washing over rocks or logs, etc. The smokey effect is pretty awesome. The trick is that it makes a huge difference exactly when the shot is taken. It’s probably a good situation to use […]

Calming Fall

Bond Falls is an impressive sight. It always strikes me, looking at a picture like this, how the long exposure creates a feeling of smooth and calm, but when you’re actually THERE at the waterfall, the raw power is overwhelming. There’s something to be said for a faster exposure in capturing the energy in the […]

Lookout Fall

This walkway was just put in not that long ago and already looks like it’s been there decades… Lake Superior weather is not easy to, well, weather.  This is the lighthouse off of Presque Isle in Upper Michigan’s Marquette, seen from one of the beaches on the road to get to the island. I haven’t […]

Alone Time

I decided it wasn’t worth risking dealing with police, so just took some photos from the overlook. It was very disappointing after driving several hours to get there. Not everyone worried about the signage […]

Down to the River

Sadly, the stairs don’t really lead anywhere anymore… but it’s hard to pass up stone stairs in the woods for a photo-op. 🙂 This was taken at Farnsworth Metropark out West of Toledo. I’d been hoping to get some sunset photos, but had the wrong time of year for the right angle. Download: Down_to_the_River_Asgard_Photography_IMG_9460.jpg Camera […]

The problem with finding drama to photograph in nature is that it always ends up being on days where it’s rough being there…. this day was incredibly hot. I don’t think I lasted more than 30 minutes on the trails.  Download: Summer_Colors_Asgard_Photography_IMG_9477.jpg Camera Settings Camera: Canon EOS 80D F-stop: f/10 Exposure: 1/200 seconds ISO: 100 […]
