Nubble Lighthouse Magic Hour || Lightroom Only

Occasionally I like to showcase the power of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom by processing one of my images using only Lightroom. Seeing as I haven’t done such a post in a while, I thought it was about time to do another! This image comes from the Nubble Light (aka Cape Neddick Lighthouse) in York, Maine. I wasn’t intending to visit this location on this particular day – I happened to have a meeting not far away...
Sunset Chiba Prefecture Japan

Sunset at Suzumejima

Last week I had the chance to visit┬áSuzumejima in the Boso Peninsula of Chiba Prefecture. It’s a place that I’ve been wanting to photography for some time. The location itself isn’t anything all that fancy – it’s comprised of two rocky structures sticking out from the water near the coast.

In Florida, where I’m from, we have some incredible beaches comprised of soft white sand, but there is little coral or rock to be found. Perhaps it is for that reason that Japanese beaches are so interesting to me – they are...

Sunrise On The Beach In Izu and New Quick Tip Video

The photo below is one I was able to take in Izu a few weeks back. I had been shooting that morning along the beach and it was really a race against the sun to get some nice beach photos before the light became too strong. Thankfully the clouds prolonged the nice light and colors longer than a normal sunrise, and made for a nice scene overall. Along with this photo, check out my new...
