“More real than life” Picture Perfect HDR Photography

Over 35 years ago I began making photographs. Ansel Adams was still alive then and he was my mentor &inspiration.  Landscape and travel photography have always been my passion. A huge shift happened in 2009 when I started learning about high dynamic range, HDR, photography.  HDR adds a dimension of supra-reality to many images and now i incorporate HDR into most of my work.

People tell me that the images I create seem
somehow, more real than life. Thank goodness because walking the
fence between real & surreal is a fun place for me to
play.  So I’m borrowing that expression as the intention for
this blog. “Photos More Real Than Life!”

I hope you like my art. It brings be much pleasure creating it.

Castello di Amoroso Winery: The Caper at Sundown

At golf the other day, when I told Vance that Mai & I were going to Calistoga for a soak in the mineral baths, photography and a voice coaching session for Mai, he lit up and ask; "Are you going to see that castle winery on the hill there? You know, that one where it's all imported from Europe piece by piece? It's really fabulous!" Admittedly, no, I hadn't really heard of it. Shameful, I know, for a native Bay Area resident not being up to date
