Fresh off the heels of my Practical Review of the Canon 17mm TS-E f/4 lens I thought I’d post one of my many favorite photos taken with the lens. The areas surrounding the Golden Gate Bridge forever call me when I’m testing or learning new gear. In particular I love exploring between Baker Beach and the Golden Gate Bridge. It never hurts photographing this area when Mother Nature serves up an amazing suns
Two quick updates to report I’ve added a new dimension to the JMG-Galleries experience by creating the JMG-Galleries Community Photos group on Flickr and the JMG-Galleries Fan Page on Facebook. On Flickr I’ve created a discussion for you to submit your best photo in relation to the theme “Rain, Mist or Fog”. Check out what your peers are photographing and let the fun begin.

Click to Enlarge I’ve been itching to test out the Canon 17mm f/4 tilt-shift lens for a long time and thanks to BorrowLenses as a courtesy this lens was made available to me for testing. I am far from being a camera gear tech-head, so if you want to get MTF chart info and other technical minutia I have provided links below to other reviews of this lens that I think are great & include greater tech info.

The incredible snow covered peaks and cliff walls of Glacier National Park are incredibly beautiful and awe inspiring. The light and wind constantly transform the view minute by minute. If you’re lucky, as I was on the morning I too
Last week wasn’t the greatest week by any stretch. In anticipation of “Baby G’s” arrival we’ve undertaken a bit of remodeling. Much to my surprise I developed back spasms as a result of moving items from one room to another. With a little extra time to sit still I took it upon myself to setup a Facebook fan page while resting. If you’re on Facebook become a fan and check in often.
Both mentally and photographically the most enlightening times I find are in moments of transition. It’s at these moments that my creativity and my admiration of my subject peaks. As it relates to landscape photography “transition” is likely to be interpreted as the transition between light and dark. This is certainly an accurate interpretation, but it is also true of any subject I photograph or ge
I’ve been tinkering with this idea for a while and there’s no time like the present to see if my idea has legs. I’d like to pursue taking the JMG-Galleries blog to the next level by including the writing of other great photographers. I’m on the fence as to whether participation of those that are interested should be of the order of “guest post” or “regular contributor”
Friend and photographer Lane Hartwell has done an amazing job of putting together in an extremely short time a great collection of photography highlighting the culture and beauty of the Haitian people prior to Tuesdays devestating 7.0 earthquake. This collection of photography titled “Onè Respe” has been compiled in a magazine format produced by MagCloud where all proceeds are being donated to the Red Cr
