Nature to the Rescue
by F.M. Kearney | August 24, 2016

Copyright F.M. KearneyI’ve always viewed myself as a “traditionalist.” I’ve never really strayed too far away from the boundaries of straight photography. It’s not that I have anything against digital manipulations, it’s just that I’m not an expert at it. I consider my Photoshop skills to be intermediat...

by Carl Donohue | April 17, 2013

© Carl DonohueThe topic of wildlife photography is an important one to me. I’ve admired the work of wildlife photographers since I was a kid, watching countless reruns of whatever documentary program the TV channels we received offered, or browsing, over and over again, the pages of National Geographic maga...

The Privilege of Nature Photography
by Bret Edge | March 26, 2013

© Bret EdgeOne day, a woman and her friend walked into my gallery to look at some images. My wife chatted with them during their visit and learned that they were truck drivers from Texas.

What We Can Learn From Iconography
by Bret Edge | January 23, 2013

© Bret EdgeWay back in the days of old, I’d head out on a road trip to an iconic national park with a couple dozen rolls of Velvia triple bagged in Ziplocs in the cooler.

Can an iPhone Make You a Better Photographer?
by Bret Edge | January 16, 2013

© Bret EdgeI’m a professional photographer and I have a confession to make: I use my iPhone camera more often than my 5D Mark II. It’s true! My iPhone is with me about 100% of the time, the 5DII not so much. It just isn’t practical to lug around a bulky, three pound camera everywhere I go...

We Live Through Experiences, Not Pictures
by Kari Post | February 2, 2012

NatureScapes.net“Have fun! Take lots of pictures!”

“Yeah, sure.” And I was out the door.

I’m lucky in that I have a lot of adventures. Freedom of spirit is a lifestyle choice I made subconciously some years ago, and one I continue to reaffirm every so often, when my restless na...

Hometown Nature Photography
by Darren Huski | September 14, 2011

© Darren HuskiSome people live within a mountain range or at the doorstep of a national park. They have amazing scenery and big game right out their front door. I am not one of those people. I live on the flat of the south plains, and it is 507 miles to the nearest national park (not that I am counting).
