Another Patriot Ledger Article and Video!
It is a little odd seeing myself in the video discussing photography. Now I have a better idea of what my students are seeing when I teach my classes. I can't help but laugh at myself:)

One of the main themes of these workshops was to return to a location frequently to get the best images. The photo accompanying this post was made after many attempts over a period of years. These swans spend a lot of time swimming through fantastic reflections. However, they usually hang out too far away to make a good image. On this day, I asked a farmer whose property abuts this pond, if I could photograph from his land. He was very agreeable and even showed me to a dock, which brought me much closer to the swans. It was worth it to return to this location again and again!
