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.

Who knows where the time goes…

Produce Vendor, Baracoa, Eastern Cuba

How can it be MAY already? The blog title, from a Judy Collins song, says it best!

Here’s the latest news in a nutshell:

You will find the listings on the workshop/tour calendar page, and details will be coming soon on most of those events!

• I will be the photography leader on board for three coastal Alaska cruises for Lindblad/NatGeo Expeditions in June – it will be great to be up there for three straight weeks and I’m looking forward to working with all the guests on these top-notch adventures.

• Those of you that follow my twitter feed have noticed I’ve been promoting my photographs on FineArtAmerica.com, as well as the art of others. Click on the link to see my collection of images available for purchase there. 

• Oh, and the vegetable garden is in great shape, ready to start producing now (about the time I’ll be away, lol!) The post image is from eastern Cuba – this guy is pretty happy about his squash! If mine grow as big, I’ll be inviting the neighborhood to dinner!

Morning Fog in Slovenia

Finally, we had some days without rain – but seriously, some of the most beautiful images we made on this tour were during the rain and during the breaks in between when clouds rose up the hillsides and added mood to the autumn day. It challenged us to work out a system of holding umbrellas while composing and setting our exposures, and watching our front elements Continue reading »

Slovenia Forests in Autumn

tharp_20161017-5237

This is my tribute to Eliot Porter and a host of other landscape photographers that inspired me when I was learning photography. I was so drawn to the beauty of hardwood forests, (deciduous forests). In Slovenia right now, we are at close to peak, and rains have already taken down some leaves, which actually leaves the forest easier to photograph. I liked how the leaves were accents to the structure of the tree trunks, how we could see into the forest to trees beyond, something that is much harder to do when the leaves are full on the trees. The soft contrast of diffused light also helped me create this scene.

Having fun scouting for our next year’s tour in Slovenia! We’ll be using a pro photographer guide who who knows where to be and when to be there, and we’ll be in great hands for our tour!

Enjoy,
