Flying Away

 

These birds are doing just what I’ll be doing tonight -flying! Only I’m headed to Victoria Falls, then into Botswana and Namibia’s Caprivi Strip. But this image made me think of the ‘other’ type of flying, the wonderful annual migration process that begins in Alaska now, as birds slowly make their way south for the winter. I’ll be waiting for them again this year to visit California NW refuges, all up and down the central valley, celebrating the return of the cranes and the snow geese and ducks by the thousands!

I may not be able to post much on my blog while I’m away, but I will try to post via Instagram as that will be faster/easier. Follow me there !

Expressive Nature Photography Officially on Sale TODAY

 

Expressive nature photography is about first finding what excites you in the location or scene, and then figuring out the way to communicate what you feel about what you are seeing, and that requires applying the concepts of light, composition, visual depth, and point of view, along with other technical things like the appropriate depth-of-field or shutter speed. In my latest book, I discuss all of these things and more, illustrated with new photographs, and I’m very excited about this book – 240 pages of idea and tips to help others become better at creating photographs that have more impact. SUMMER is a great time to read this and put it to good use – and keep using it into Autumn, and well, Winter, and then there’s next Spring…

This book is now available at bookstores everywhere – and on line. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Expressive Nature Photography! It always feels good to give ‘birth’ to a new project…

Signed copies are available on my site (higher price), or visit your favorite on-line or brick-and-mortar store to order a copy. 

Enjoy, and keep on photographing!

New Website

 
After much effort, I have consolidated my portfolios and my archive of images into one site hosted by Photoshelter. I have had the Photoshelter site for some time, and finally had time this winter to upload a lot more photographs and it’s continuing to be populated with images. Check out the portfolios from the home page, or browse the archive… My website address remains the same, http://www.brendatharp.com, or simply www.brendatharp.com

My blog is separate and can be reached via http://brendatharp.com (no www) or simply brendatharp.com. You can get to either by navigational tabs on each site so it’s pretty seamless and effortless.  So you can see, no matter what you type, you’ll find me! Please update your bookmarks for any links you have for me. Thank you.
