Last fall, I joined my wife Sue, on a visit to her former stomping grounds in the German Alps. Specifically, the Alpine village of Garmisch. We had almost a week together, immediately following a workshop we conducted in Venice, Italy. What a great place to visit and shoot!
The photo above is a stitched panoramic, taken from a hilltop in Garmisch. It's actually 8 individual vertical shots that were stitched together in Arcsoft Panorama Maker Pro....unbelievably east to do the computer work with this program. Each shot was at f/8 for 15 seconds, with the white balance set for Tungsten.
We'd get up early and head out in the rental car, with no particular destination in mind. We always found some great subject matter.
A couple times, she grabbed the video camera, and we did an impromptu lesson.......we've got them ready to look at.....just click on the middle of the screens below.....
Luckily, photography has been my sole profession. Since beginning my business in high school, I've maintained the studio in my hometown, and am living in the nearby town of Whittier.
I have 3 sons, who all survived the trauma of growing up in LA.....and they all appear to be well on their way to successful careers. My wonderful wife, Sue, is extremely supportive, and never complains of the constant hectic travel schedule.
