Doing a landscape justice

Doing a landscape justice

February 28th, 2013

Capturing the grandeur of a large landscape scene can be one of the most difficult challenges. Far to often the magnificence is lost when rendered on a small two dimensional plane. A lifetime is spent in search of ideal conditions along with beautiful light that might, among other things, create the illusion of a three dimensional space. This clearing storm in Zion National Park of southern Utah was just such an opportunity. I refer to it sometimes as the attempt to do a landscape justice. When...

Better

Better

December 18th, 2012

Recently, while giving a talk, I was ask: "What makes your photography better than others"?. The question caught me a bit off guard because I don't think in terms of being better than others. For me its about sharing a vision and maybe along the way if I could raise awareness, that would be a positive contribution. So I just do what I can and it's gratifying to learn when I have helped someone gain a better appreciation of our brief moment in the sun.

Less photographed Places

Less photographed Places

April 21st, 2011

I look for areas that have different and far less photographed perspectives such as this view of the cliffs of Zion National Park from the BLM land just adjacent. It pays off sometimes with unique work and another advantage is not having to fight the crowds.

Cress Creek Nature Trail and Preserve

Cress Creek Nature Trail and Preserve

March 31st, 2011

The Cress Creek Nature Trail and preserve in east Idaho is becoming increasingly popular. The BLM has so far procured about 24 million for land easements, trail and bridge work at this site using my work in slide shows. It's a nice place to go for a hike, is less than an hours drive from Idaho Falls and the trail offers great views of the Snake River. Cress Creek itself is a wetland and spring on the side of the mountain with nice cascades and Cottonwood trees.

The positive side of art and the significance of a display

The positive side of art and the significance of a display

March 24th, 2011

Over the years I have had the opportunity to visit hundred's of businesses large and small involved in about everything you could imagine. An unbelievable amount of corporate money is spent creating structures for people to conduct business or whatever in. Humans are expected to create, work and generally function at their best in the interior environments of these buildings. What I find disturbing is how often so little attention is paid in creating a healthy, stimulating and inspirational...

Knowing what to photograph

Knowing what to photograph

Knowing what to photograph by Leland Howard

Knowing what to photograph is similar to the process involved in other mediums. How does a painter know what to paint or how does the musician know what to play? Mostly it's what moves you in some way. Photographically if you care about the subject it will show in the work.

Of course conditions, weather and assignment contracts play a big role. If I'm not under a contract obligation then experience that allows for hopefully...
