Photographing a Roadtrip through Big Sur

Posted By Ben Horton
Nadya has the unique experience of looking down on a sunset in Big Sur.
Big Sur is one of my favorite summer road trips.  A two lane road framed by sea cliffs and redwood blanketed mountains winds it’s way up the coastline.  Unmarked trails lead to hidden coves, empty surf, and waterfalls tucked away under a canopy of giant trees.   With your eyes focused on the winding road …

Steve Shuey below Falls Creek Falls, Washington State
I’m pretty old school; when I am out in nature, I am typically working hard to exclude any sign of humans from my landscape pictures. So when my friend Steve Shuey and I were photographing this spectacular waterfall in the Cascade mountains, I took care to crop out cut logs and any sign of the …

Maya on July 4, 2011, Manzanita Beach  OR
A bit of a departure from nature photography with this post – today we’re talking about photographing kids. I don’t know about your kids (or grandkids) but they all seem to go through a phase when they simply do not like being photographed, and do everything they can to subvert your efforts, either frowning or …
