Weekend at the Everglades

There is nothing cooler than spending the day in the outdoors, especially surrounded by friends. The Everglades is one of my favorite places to photograph, it is so challenging, not only the conditions but it’s a swamp full of snakes and gators. Just think about that for a second, sometimes in order to get the shot, you have to go in the water and pretend there is nothing down there.¬† Imagine being in a swimming pool. This is when 30 seconds seems like an eternity. I edited these with my Ultimate Lightroom Preset Collection.

The first image is my favorite, even though I was getting eaten alive by mosquitos, I think it was worth the pain.

The images were shot with my Nikon D800 and Nikon 14-24mm on my favorite MeFOTO tripod.

Everglades Reflections

This weekend was EPIC, I hosted 2 Everglades Photography Workshops and they were both amazing. Its always so good to meet new people and take them to this very special place, it is what fuels my addiction for photography.

This was my last shot of the night, literally. The sky was amazing, the colors where epic and the reflections on the water were perfect. I hardly had to do anything to this image. As you can see it just pops.
