The Return of MACRO and MORE !

Usually when sequels to movies come out they are rarely good ones. There are some exceptions like the Godfather 2 and others.

moats-mugWell hold on to your hats! Macro and More is BACK!!! (Though for now only one day–read on)

First, let me say that I don’t like the word Macro for a few reasons. Macro photography normally means 1:1 shooting with a macro lens. I rather the term “CLOSE UP” Photography be used. I make a lot of decent images with other lenses, rather than just macro lenses …. just my $0.02. Continue reading The Return of MACRO and MORE !

DAY 5.

_jgx2298-edit-editTonight we are back in Reykjavik after a great 5 day winter Photography Adventure (Workshop) here i Iceland. Tomorrow we travel back to Seattle. … just a great 5 days in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.

 

We made some images in the rain today on the way back heading west to Reykjavik. Lots of water, action and green. This winter there is little snow close to the ocean

DAY 3

Heading east on the south coast of Iceland we had some stops to view  and photograph the beautiful horses of Iceland. Photographing the glacial lagoon, Jokulsarlon and its adjacent black sand beach is always a welcome location for our workshop attendees.

Slow shatter speeds ( about 1-1.5 seconds) offer dreamy effects on the floating ice as the ocean waves come over them

DAY 2

Sunrise Light

We had great light and great conditions, exceptional for a winter day here in Iceland. After a great sunrise and  a great sunset we were treated to a wonderful aurora display over Jokulsarlon. The images speak for themselves. Without light, images suffer!

“Of all the things I’ve done in my career, I hold most dear the success I’ve had running workshops, and I feel  know a lot about that subject, enough to say that Jack Graham is probably the preeminent workshop provider in the field today!  His concern for his clients is amazing and he works tirelessly to see they get “more” than they paid for!  We have been friends for a long, long time.  He did his first workshop with me with the late Galen Rowell in the early nineties.  Jack was a big time professional musician playing with big names like Frank Sinatra!  He put that same effort into photography and has become one of the best out there today! Jack has become not only someone I admire, but someone I love very much, I’m thrilled we get to work together!”—Bill Fortney

WINTER in ICELAND…..DAY ONE

_jgx1851We began out  our 5 day workshop today. As usual winter in Iceland always provides weather that is never dull. Prior to today’s departure from Reykjavik,  I took 2 clients out for a day, venturing to some areas we are not going to during our time together starting today.

We had a day of wind, rain, sun rainbows, and dramatic light. Being patient was the order of the day. Here are a few images. We visited one of my favorite churches in Iceland and used the clouds to tell the story of drama. The black skies behind the lighthouse was from an exiting storm. We had a beam of bright sun that lasted about a minute that side-lit the lighthouse with some amazing light.

DAY ONE: Day one was challenging. We had a fair amount of rain. Our group did get some great images from Skogarfoss. We made some really dramatic images of the huge crashing waves on the rocky beach in Vik, on the south coast of Iceland
