Glacier Calving

This is an image of the Northwestern Glacier in Alaska calving while I was there in July of 2012.  Wanna know how big this actually is?  Take a look at the bottom center of the picture where the ice meets the water.  You will see a bird flying in the middle of it all.  When you scale the bird to the glacier, it gives you much greater appreciation for just how magnificent these glaciers are....the boat was a ways away and once the wave got to us it was quite large!

Reason #1 to attend a photo workshop- Learn to take your own great family portraits!

This image is of my family on the Matanuska Glacier in Alaska in July of 2012.  This image was taken on a tripod and was only developed using Lightroom.  This image wasn't processed using Photoshop at all.

There are a lot of people that come to my workshops ranging from amateur, hobbyist, enthusiast, semi pro and pro.  One of the number 1 reasons I always hear as to why people come to my workshops is because they truly want to start taking great shots of their own family.  And if you think about it, what better reason is there to learn photography than to capture and chronicle your own family adventure?  

I'd love to see you at one of my workshops this year....and if you would like a workshop in your own area, all you have to do is get 5 people organized and we will schedule it for your area!

Day at the Beach!

This image was taken at my workshop in South Carolina in November of last year.  This was the first time I did a child shoot at one of my workshops and it was a blast!  For this shot I had to work with Sullivan to get him to smile and fall back...and by the time I got him to do it he did it beautifully!

Workshops that matter, teaching art at a photo workshop

This image was taken at my workshop in Tampa, Florida at the Don Vicente Inn in St. Ybor.  It is a beautiful place and we had the awesome opportunity to shoot in it completely uninterrupted.  For this shot our beautiful model Constance was standing on a table, we used my monopod attached to a video light to light her from up top.

One of the things that I value the most at my workshops is teaching people real shooting scenarios, not made up ones that are nothing like what I'd do on a real shoot.  There are so many times I've attended workshops where they pull the model out into the hallway and 100 photographers try to get a shot....that's pretty worthless in my opinion.  So try one of my workshops, you'll see and experience the difference!

Looking Over Our Country's Future

This image was taken at Lincoln's Memorial on inauguration day 2013.  I thought it was a fitting tribute to pay homage to one of our most amazing and courageous president's ever, President Lincoln, who truly brought our nation together during our darkest days.  The sunset was just striking so I shot this 5 shot panoramic to capture as much of it as I could.  If you haven't been to the Lincoln Memorial, it is quite a site, take the time to learn more about our past so we can ensure a brighter future....

MLK Memorial at Sunset on Inauguration Day 2013

This shot was taken on inauguration day last Monday in Washington DC at the Martin Luther King Memorial during sunset.  We were blessed with an amazing sunset, and because we rented bikes we were able to get around to the various monuments fairly quickly which was great.  This is the first time I'd seen the MLK Memorial and it's quite striking as the stone carving of Martin Luther King stands alone in a big square, so the stone is very imposing in comparison to the surroundings.  Very strong.  I loved how the sun came in and lit the stone for this shot, and I tried my best to capture it!

Reflecting Pool Landing

This image was taken on inauguration evening during the sunset.  One of the best things when taking a landscape is when you can get something spontaneous to happen, like this bird landing in the water as I was shooting.  It was an amazing sunset and I can't wait to share more!

Martin Luther King Memorial Inauguration Morning

This image was taken inauguration morning in Washington DC at the Martin Luther King Memorial.  Due to the time of the morning the sun was coming in and lighting the face of the memorial which gave it some great contrast between the face and the sides of the memorial.  It was a VERY cold morning, but I'm glad we made the trip because it was awesome to be there for history.

Off Camera Flash Set Up with Pocket Wizards and Ray Flash

I get asked a lot about my set up for off camera flash when I do my shoots.  So I'm posting a production shot from my workshop in DC that shows me holding that exact configuration.  In this shot you see in my right hand my Nikon D800 with a Pocket Wizard attached to the hot shoe (where the flash goes).  In my left hand I have my Nikon Speedlight 910 with a Ray Flash attached to the end of the flash and a Pocket Wizard hooked into the bottom of the flash.

Basically by attaching the Pocket Wizards as shown it remotely fires the flash.  Think of it as an extension of the flash. Since one of the Pocket Wizards is hooked up to the hot shoe on the camera, and the other is hooked up to the bottom of the flash, it's as if an invisible line is drawn connecting the two.  In reality the Pocket Wizards are fired by a radio frequency where they "talk" to each other which is great because they don't have to have a line of sight to trigger.

The Ray Flash is great because it equally distributes to the light which is very helpful in many situations.  I also love it because I can lay it on the ground which can be very helpful when I'm running out of hands or don't have my light stand or tripod with me.  Hope this helps!

Paris, Strike a Pose while lying down

This image was taken during one of my favorite shoots ever with Ashley Rau in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.  It was such a cold night when we did this shoot, so getting this shot was hard because we were both lying on the cold stone for this set of shots.  But with the Eiffel Tower glowing, the clouds reflecting light, and my video lights hitting the bride, it just made for a great shoot!  Hope you like it!

Depth of Field, a simple illustration

I've seen many online tutorials etc. explaining depth of field, many of which are very good.  But I wanted to post a simple illustration where I shot two shots very differently with the intent of illustrating the power of using depth of field in the shots.  Depth of field can be controlled really by using two things, your aperture and your zoom.  I used two images shown here taken of my sons at Disneyland during Halloween.

In simple terms the lower or wider the aperture, the more blur or bokeh you are going to create.  This is especially desired in portraiture photography where you have one subject, or multiple subjects that are the same distance from the camera lens.  You will also create this effect by zooming into the picture.  The more the zoom, the more the blur.  This is known as creating a shallow depth of field.  In the image provided you can see how my son Kevin standing in front is in focus, my second son Jason is less in focus, and my son Michael in the back is very out of focus.

To create a large depth of field you use a higher aperture, usually f8 or higher and also minimize your zoom.  This is primarily used for landscape photography, and also for group shots like at weddings etc.  If you don't use a larger depth of field when shooting group shots, the edges of the images and anyone standing in the edges will begin to distort or blur.  In the image provided you can see all of my sons are in focus which was achieved by changing my f stop (aperture) to f/13 which gave me sharper focus for all areas of the image.

Angel in the Alley by Jason Lanier

This image was taken during my Chicago workshop in September 2012 with the beautiful Tyler Vines as our model.  We did this shoot at 1AM in an alleyway in Chicago....we were exhausted but definitely wanted to nail this shoot before we finished.  This was shot using a video light for front light and a triggered flash from behind.  Thanks again to my wonderful group for joining me on this adventure!

Check you out....

Took this image at my workshop in Chicago in September of 2012.  Shooting in the park is just awesome as it has a lot of water, lights, and architecture to use to shoot with.  In this shot you see a man's face looking at the back end of the model. The screen alternates faces and then will spit out water...it's pretty hilarious.  It was an amazing workshop!

This image was taken at Niagara Falls during their light show which they do every night.  It's quite an amazing thing to witness and if you have the chance the go I highly recommend it.  The coloring in this image was all natural meaning it's what I saw, not enhanced in photoshop.  The hardest part was getting a shot without falling over the edge!

I Have A Dream, Inauguration day 2013

This image was taken from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial where Martin Luther King delivered his most famous speech in the very spot where the engraving you see here sits.  This was taken during President Barack Obama's second inauguration just before noon moments before he was sworn in.

Wild Hogs

Look at Hell's Angels, here come the Wild Hogs from Washington DC.  Nothing is sexier than men in their 30's riding around in red unisex bicycles with camera gear flying in the breeze.  Well, the bikes were lifesavers for our legs and enabled us to get around the inauguration faster than anyone else there.  Thanks to my brother Ryan and Vanden for joining me on this adventure!!!

Lincoln's Vista by Jason Lanier

This shot was taken last night on inauguration evening as the sunset was ending.  The coloring on the entire picture including the Washington Monument is completely unaltered.  The Washington Monument is golden because that was the last part of the sun that was shining through.  This was taken from the top center steps of the Lincoln Memorial and is exactly what Lincoln looks at every evening.  It was the most amazing sunset I've ever seen in Washington DC....

Official Inauguration Sunset by Jason Lanier

This image was taken on Sunday January 20, 2013 the official inauguration day for President Barack Obama.  The ceremony on Monday was a public inauguration, but the official one was the day before.  I came down the National Mall and saw the sun setting.  I walked down the hill and split the sun with this lone tree.  I just loved the shadows it cast and the simplicity of the image.

Velvet Reflection by Jason Lanier

This image was taken two days ago during the night shoot for my DC Workshop.  We came back to the reflection pool after sunset when there is still ambient light, pulled out the tripods, and started going to town.  It was an extremely cold night, but after looking at this shot I'm glad we pulled it off....

Washington DC Workshop Group Shot

Group shot of us at Mount Vernon in Washington DC.  We had an amazing time, and now it's on to shooting the inauguration festivities over the next 2 days.  In talking to the Park Rangers I learned a few interesting things:

- They are expecting only about 20% of the crowd that came to Obama's first inauguration

-Inauguration ticket requests are coming in at a snails pace compared to last time.  10,000/day versus 10,000/hour 4 years ago.

I'm in our nation's capital to shoot the inauguration regardless of who wins simply because it is living history.  I plan on shooting the next 40 years worth of inaugurations if the body is willing.  This is my second one because in 2008 I had just been a pro photographer for 1 year, so in 2004 I wouldn't have known what I was doing.  Can't wait to share stuff with you all!

ABC News Interview at the Lincoln Memorial

This is a production still from my workshop yesterday in Washington DC at the Lincoln Memorial.  As we were shooting I was approached about giving my thoughts on various topics for ABC news.  It was a really fun experience, but I do wish ABC would have used better lighting so I wasn't squinting.  Leave it to me to critique ABC but they should have used a soft cutter so the glare sun wasn't so bright.  But, I was still excited to do the spot.  Today we have Mount Vernon, and then back to the Mall area for another great day!!

Trees of Life by Jason Lanier

This shot was taken nearly 5 years ago in Maui, Hawaii and for the first time is being published.  This is why you keep raw files guys.  Had I tortured this image with my editing from 5 years ago it would have been a tragic loss to this piece.  The fog was rolling in during sunset and I was shooting in Poli Poli which is a wooded area on the hills of the Haleakala volcano in Maui.  The sun could just barely break through to shine it's light on the trees, yet the fog was still strong enough to give it a very different feeling than the typical sunset...and it really diffused the light which was awesome.

This image and more will be part of my new landscape website/store and I can't wait to unveil it to you guys.

Too Close for Comfort? 10 feet from a Male Lion and African Buffalo

As I'm preparing the launch of my all new landscape website and online store, we're browsing through my images and I came upon this one.  This is a production still but it shows just how close I come to these amazing animals.  This picture in particular was shot while in Africa and I'm only 10 feet from a male lion and African Buffalo as I'm shooting them during a standoff.  Talk about real life drugs....Africa is it!

Many times I'm asked just how close I come to the animals I shoot so I thought I'd share this shot.  There are no fences, no park rangers, nothing....just me and the animals.  You can see my car window in the shot as well which shows you just how close I was...hope you like it!

Waiting for her one true love, bridals by Jason Lanier at the Altenburg Castle Germany

This image was taken during my bridal shoot at the Altenburg Castle in Germany in late November 2012.  A wonderful layer of fog had rolled in which really helped to illuminate the castle late at night.  It was extremely cold but totally worth it! You need to always look for ways to use the elements and what you're given to your advantage.  Once I arrived at the castle and saw the fog, I wanted a darker more "Tim Burton" style type shoot, and the elements there helped me to make it happen!

Schwangau Fog, Meeting in the Middle by Jason Lanier

This image was taken during my excursion to Germany when I went to the shoot the Neushwanstein Castle.  Sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate with you like you want it to, but when you get a layer of fog like this you make the best of it rather than sit in your hotel room.  I came across this row of trees and just loved how they were faint in the fog, but visible enough to where they can still be seen.  Just loved being there!

Neushwanstein Castle in Schwangau Germany by Jason Lanier

This image was taken in the beautiful little town of Schwangau Germany where the historic Neushwanstein Castle sits high in the mountains.  It is truly a picturesque place and has a very non-tourist feel for such a big tourist attraction. Maybe that's because I was there in the winter time, but regardless it's absolutely breathtaking.  The hardest part for me was waiting through the rain, because it seemed to never stop.  When the sun did break I only had about a 2 hour window to get everything that I could.  I hope you like it!

St. Giles Cathedral Edinburgh Scotland

This is an image that has been developed in Lightroom but was not processed using Photoshop in any way.  This was taken at the St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.  The key to shooting something like this is you have to expose for the brightest part of the stained glass, not the walls.  If you expose for the walls it will blow out the stained glass.  Hope you like it!

River Ness in Inverness Scotland

After passing through Loch Ness and missing my opportunity to get a shot of the monster, I continued up towards Inverness which is a beautiful little city that has the River Ness running through it.  The best way to describe this city is that it's very peaceful, and quite adequate for a peaceful stroll along the banks of the river.  I climbed over the railing to get this shot but I think it was worth it.

Inauguration Weekend Photography Workshop!

When I began as a professional photographer in 2007 I made a personal commitment to shoot all the Presidential inaugurations until I retired.  So in 2008 I shot the inauguration for Barack Obama.  It was an amazing experience to be part of history, and I plan on being part of this history for all the Presidents to come as long as I can still pick up a camera. I'm holding a very special workshop the Friday and Saturday before the workshop and would love to see you there!  This is one time where you will not only learn how to become a much better photographer, but you will also experience history first hand....
