Paradise Falls, Glacier NP

Posted By Joseph Rossbach

Modern digital cameras and their ¬†resolution and dynamic range available today amaze me! While in Glacier on this last trip, I found myself shooting a particular scene that I would never have even tried to get away with on film or even without some serious exposure blending just a few years ago. A very contrasty …

On the first evening of my recent Valley of Fire Workshop, we hiked out to Fire Wave in hopes of capturing dramatic landscape images. The skies had some amazing clouds to the south hanging over Fire Wave when we first arrived and we set up for the more or less traditional shot. I encouraged my …

(¬© Joseph Rossbach) Back Light is one of my favorite lighting conditions to work under. Over the past couple of months I have been chasing the fall colors from the Tetons to West Virginia, leading several workshops along the way. The color this year was excellent and I was given the opportunity to work with …

Storm Light, Sainty Mary Lake, Glacier National Park
While on my recent trip to photograph and scout for a future workshop in Glacier National Park, I made it a goal to come away with at least one dramatic image from Saint Mary’s Lake, arguably the most photographed location in the park. The last time I was in Glacier was about 12 years ago …

Triple-Falls
I am finally back home after a nine-day trip to Glacier National Park followed by a week in Charleston with my family on vacation. The trip to Glacier was productive, but incredibly frustrating. To start with, my first three days were absolutely horrid conditions for nature photography, blue bird blue skies and not a cloud …

Sunset from Little Stony Man Cliffs, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Posted By Joseph Rossbach
Little-Stony-Man-Sunsey
I’ve visited Little Stony Man Cliffs at least a dozen times before, sometimes with clients and sometimes alone. They face due west and therefore make a great location for sunset and later afternoon light. In all the years before, I have never been able to come away with anything truly epic from this spot, so …

I just returned home from two weeks of shooting spring and leading workshops in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia near Canaan Valley. The conditions this year were some of the best I have experienced in almost five years! The foliage was fresh and green,¬† the water flowing and the light at times was nothing …
