Blog / Travelogue Update

It’s been an interesting few months. Those that follow my site, along with my Travelogues, know that I’ve been absent. And also scarce on Twitter and Instagram. Although Instagram has been getting a little more love. There is a reason for my absence. I needed a break. I was spending too much time worrying about the site, social media, and what to post next. There are more important things in my life that I want to focus on than this

Travelogue: On Set

Last week I mentioned how the most rewarding images I’ve taken have been the images I shot on set. I also discussed how the images I’ve shot are not permitted to see the light of day. That still true. So why am I showing you an image I shot on set during season 4? Well it’s because there is nothing in the images that grounds it or ties it to any specific plot point, actor, set, and so on and

On The Street: Crisis

We all go through a photographic crisis at some point or another. When we start taking pictures, we might be focused on Street Photography or Landscape or portraits. But at some point our interest in what we are photographing dwindles, and we need to explore new avenues to keep motivated and inspired by our work. Have a listen to the latest Leica Travelogue and feel free to share your thoughts. If you like the show please rate it on iTunes

Travelogue: Nomad

Can you hear it? Your footsteps in sand. The wind rushing by you as you walk towards the convoy of vehicles. You think to yourself. What did the guide say? If the wind picks before 2pm there is a chance of a sandstorm? You look towards the horizon, but see nothing. Crystal blue skies. Not even a cloud in sight. We’re back in Morocco for this weeks Travelogue. Let’s take a walk through the edge of the Sahara Desert. If

On The Street: The Art of Game Photography

Game photography is starting to emerge more and more each year. There are games like The Last of Us, Uncharted 4, and most recently Horizon Zero Dawn. I think its a great way for people to experiment with their style. To try out new looks or creative compositions. Without the worry of screwing something up. But will it make you better on the street or in your documentary work? Probably not. Will it help you interact with others? Definitely not.

Travelogue: NY Fail

As image makers we are all inherently imperfect. The road we take is riddled with failures. Failed moments, failed light, personal fails. This helps us learn and expand our creativity. Here is one such failed attempt. This is a re-recording of the original NY Fail episode. I wasn’t happy with the quality or what was said during the post. So here’s a fresh take. Enjoy. TW

It’s Cloudy in 2014… Wait… What?

The way the new Leica 35mm Summicron-M f/2 ASPH renders the out of focus areas, is incredible. I just love it. Even more so in the latest version of the lens which has eleven aperture blades versus the eight that were present in the last couple versions. The last ASPH version I never really enjoyed the bokeh. It was too harsh for my tastes. But the soft, swirly look of the new 35mm Summicron is something incredible. I may decide

Travelogue: The Sign

Today we discuss this particular image, dubbed the sign, and whether or not a sign like this can have any effect in a large city such as New York. Now you may recognize this image from a previous Audio log dubbed “The Sign”. That’s because I’ve talked about it before. But when I listened back to it it just didn’t sound that great. The audio was quiet and muffled so I decided to take another stab at it. This time
