This is a 14 frame panorama of the #supermoon taken with my Nikon 28-300 at Point Imperial at the Grand Canyon. As the sun set and the moon came out, the wind began to blow. This made very difficult conditions for using a long telephoto lens. After a great deal of persistance I was able to capture the 14 frames I needed and here is the result.

Ben, I have so many things to say in response to your video that I don't even know where to start. I've enjoyed watching your videos on and off for quite sometime and I have to say you have inspired me to have more patience in my photography. I have personally found this not only has improved my skill, but I also have much more fun when I'm out shooting.  So, on a personal basis I completely agree with you. I have run into several workshops on my travels and have experienced many of the same feelings you have expressed in your video. As a photographer, I think workshops are ridiculous and I really cannot see the point of taking one for the reasons you stated. However, as someone who has been a teacher in various fields for 15 years there are a few points I'd like to make.

Ben, I have so many things to say in response to your video that I don't even know where to start. I've enjoyed watching your videos on and off for quite sometime and I have to say you have inspired me to have more patience in my photography. I have personally found this not only has improved my skill, but I also have much more fun when I'm out shooting.  So, on a personal basis I completely agree with you. I have run into several workshops on my travels and have experienced many of the same feelings you have expressed in your video. As a photographer, I think workshops are ridiculous and I really cannot see the point of taking one for the reasons you stated. However, as someone who has been a teacher in various fields for 15 years there are a few points I'd like to make.

First, you are obviously looking at things from the perspective of an accomplished photographer and not the perspective of an amateur enthusiast, beginner, or long time hobbyist. I think one of the reasons so many people take photography workshops is very simply for camaraderie. Like you, I personally would much rather shoot by myself than in a group, but based on the things I've experienced, I believe we are in the minority. People love to talk about their passions and greatly enjoy being around people that share their common interests. For many, this alone is worth the $1000 price tag for a workshop. Others may have not visited the location of the workshop before and simply want someone else to do all the work of scouting and to bring them to the right location at the right time. Some people may feel so intimidated and overwhelmed by the idea of going to a location that they find it easier to pay someone to hold their hand. Also, as Kerstin mentioned, for many they simply go for bragging rights. While I do not agree with any of these things, it's impossible to hold others to the standards that we set for ourselves and we must remember that people's goals will almost always be different from our own.

Now, in my opinion, the job of a good teacher in this situation is to INSPIRE. Let's be realistic - photography takes years of hard work and practice to master. How much are you really going to be able to TEACH in 3 or 4 days? Not much at all. If you try to teach a group, odds are all you're going to do is entertain them for a weekend after which they will go home and promptly forget all they learned. By using a workshop as a catalyst and the time to inspire the group, perhaps you can get through to one or two of them who will go home and continue their education and learning process. I feel the only way to make this happen is to clearly state the goals and purpose of the workshop up front so as to minimize misunderstanding.

On the issue of integrity and locations. I don't know that there is a good solution. As explorers, it is in our nature to seek out places less visited and uncover secrets, but lets face it, explorers by their very nature are not going to take a workshop in the first place. Personally, I believe that large groups should be restricted to well trafficked areas to minimize impact on the environment. Many of the people taking a workshop have not visited that location before and will likely be pleased to visit the major highlights. Again, this is about being up front and honest - these are the goals of the workshops, this is the purpose, these are the locations we're going to visit. If stated up front, those with goals different from that of the workshop will simply not sign up and those who do will be like-minded. 

Bottom line, love them or hate the, photography workshops are here to stay. I hope the NPS continues to crack down on photographers who violate the rules. The more people are educated about what these kind of topics, the more things should improve. Unfortunately with the aid of the internet and the easy to use digital cameras, the term "professional photographer" is no longer based on prowess but on popularity. Such is the world we live in. Hopefully the future will see more people who embody the true meaning of professional lead the way and inspire those new (or old) to photography to learn things the right way, protect the environment, and have integrity and pride in the things they do. ___

Check out this awesome full moon image by +Phillip Colla!

Ancient Bristlecone Pines, Full Moon and Starry Night
This is the best image I made during a May trip through the White Mountains and Tioga Pass. I set out to find new, photogenic ancient bristlecone pine trees, something other than the two iconic brutes along the Discovery Trail near Schulman Grove and the oft-photographed leaner near the Patriarch Grove parking lot. I found some really nice ones, and spent the last light of the day photographing them, returning again after dinner to photograph them under the moonlight and stars. This is the panoramic image I wanted to create on this trip, depicting a stately old bristlecone, somewhat alone on the dolomite-white slopes of the White Mountains but with its brethren in the background of the composition, with a view along the crest of the White Mountains and the Sierra Nevada in the distance. It is humbling to know that his tree owned such an expansive view for centuries, watching storms peel off the distant Sierra Nevada, pass over the Owens Valley far below and crash against its rooted home in the White Mountains, the bitter winds blowing the tree eastward and sculpting it into its now-gnarled form. This panorama is actually an enormous image which, at full resolution, will print up to 4′ high by 11′ long. Please contact me for licensing, printing and any use of this image. Cheers and thanks for looking!

Thank you everyone for your overwhelming support of my #Supermoon photos for my film, The Art of the Chase.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jasonhines/the-art-of-the-chase

I can't believe I woke up to over 3,500 +1s and almost 800 shares of the Supermoon at Point Imperial. Combined with the fact that my photos were featured on the NBC website and NBC Nightly News, it has been an all around awesome weekend.

While I was able to capture some great photos and we have some great footage for the documentary, we still need YOUR HELP! The Art of the Chase is a special, inspiring, and personally emotional film about my journey as a photographer. The Supermoon adventure was our first full shoot and so far it has come out great.

This is another test shot pre #supermoon  at 1350mm taken much later at night after the sky had turned much darker. Because of the contrast with the sky, you can see a lot more detail.

This is my first test shot with the Nikon 800mm. I used a 1.7x teleconverter to achieve a focal length of 1350mm. It was a HUGE thrill seeing the moon through the viewfinder at this focal length. The detail is absolutely astounding - I can't wait to use this for the rise of the #Supermoon.

I was doing some scouting in Joshua Tree National Park last week for some upcoming projects. I was really surprised to find this area right next to my campsite at Jumbo Rocks. 

I decided to wait until well after sunset for the starts to come out and use the sliver of a moon to illuminate my foreground. I love the results!

I had scouted my sunrise shot the previous afternoon and marked it with my gps.  When I arrived the next morning, I discovered that the water had evaporated and my shot was gone.  Undeterred, I spent a quite pleasant morning walking around the area listening to the coyotes howl.  I found this nice little composition after the sun came up.

I had already checked out the 9 mile artist's loop to see what there was to see.  A couple days later, the weather turned overcast with a tiny bit of rain.  I figured that the overcast light would give a nice even exposure here at the Artist's Palette.

This is a 3 frame panorama taken at 105mm with my D800E and processed with Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop.  Thanks for looking!

I just got back from a great trip to Death Valley.  This was my first time there and there was so much to see.  I look forward to going back and exploring more at some point.  

I took the advantage of the clear and cool weather to do some night photography while I was there.  This is one of the images I'm quite fond of :)

I'm excited to be heading off to Death Valley on Wednesday! The weather is looking pretty good and it will be a great chance to warm up for a little while :). Here's another shot of the Watchmen from the same area as yesterday's photo.

The classic view of the Watchmen usually makes for a nice image but I always get turned off shooting from the bridge when there are so many other photographers.  Over my past few visits to Zion I've been looking for a different perspective to shoot from and I finally found a place I like.  I've got a couple different shots from here that I'll share.

I had the opportunity spend a little time shooting at the Valley of Fire this past weekend.  I only had a few hours in the morning to shoot before I headed to Vegas to pick up a friend from the airport so I did a little exploring.  I always find it amazing when I see plants like this growing right out of the sandstone.

Happy 2013 everyone! I know I’m a bit late getting things rolling this year but I have a great reason – I became a father this Christmas! Although I had plenty of time to get used to the idea, it’s still strange to say that I’m a father. Needless to say there has been a good deal of adjustment going on (mostly getting used to sleeping less), but I’m so happy to have a healthy and beautiful baby girl. I have taken some time off from updating this blog as well as shooting but I’m getting back into the swing of things and I’ll have new images up very soon. In the meantime, meet my beautiful daughter, Lucy Marie Hines! :)

"Alien Skies"

Here's a shot from a new location I found in Eastern Nevada called Cathedral Gorge State Park.  Although it's quite out of the way of almost everything, I think it's quite worth the visit.  I am looking forward to going back.  Thanks for looking!

Morning at the Grand Canyon's North Rim!  If you've never stood at the edge of the rim watching as the the light turns from night to day, you're definitely missing something very special.  This was taken at Point Imperial - as the sun climbed over the horizon, the back lighting on this tree was just magical.  Please enjoy!

I took the opportunity to explore a new location in Eastern Nevada this weekend.  This is from an interesting location called Cathedral Gorge State Park.  This is one of my favorite formations - I purposely waited until I was sure it was too dark before taking this shot.  I really like the look of this with the very last of the light in the sky.  Thanks for looking!

Here’s an image of an awesome sunset in the Tuolumne Meadows area of Yosemite National Park. One of the things about photographing in unfamiliar mountain territory is that sometimes the light can do things you don’t quite expect. This was one of those times where I planned out the shot I was going to take at sunset and the sky began to light up in a different direction. It’s times like this that flexibility is key, not to mention the ability to run with all your gear! The 8,000 ft altitude made it tough but I ran flat about for about a quarter mile and set up for this shot while panting heavily. Not what I had planned but minus the stich in my side, I felt it worked out well!

I had the bright idea of taking the scenic Kolob Terrace road from Cedar City to Zion this past weekend. I knew there would be some snow at that elevation but I didn’t anticipate how much mud there would be. 20 miles later, I decided to turn around right after I helped tow someone else’s truck out of the mud. The moral of the story? Better off road tires might be a good investment at some point.

It was great while it lasted however. The aspens had all dropped their leaves and were prominently displaying their interesting trunks, there was plenty of untouched snow on the ground and a layer of low clouds hanging over all. I managed to come away with a few shots I liked and this is one of them. This little bit of yellow grass poking through snow was something I wouldn’t have given a second glance a year ago but now, I’m happy to be able see little minimalistic compositions like this.

Here’s a shot from Blue Canyon from back in June. This was my first attempt shooting star trails and I think the overall effect is pretty nice. I’ve been scouting a few places to shoot some night photography near by and I think I found some good spots. Now all I have to do is wait for the moon to wane a little more. Normally, I usually see night photography like this in color but I really liked the b&w effect. What do you think?

The night sky has always been something that’s fascinated me for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid growing up in Tucson, there were still several good places where one could observe the stars without too much light pollution. I remember in particular living in the outskirts of Tucson as a young adult and looking up at the stars when there was a new moon – it was really something extraordinary. Living in Phoenix for many years, stars were something I rather forgot about with all the light pollution only I got my first DSLR. Since then, I’ve been fortunate to travel to many places with very dark skies and rediscover my love for the stars.

This is only my second attempt at shooting the Milky Way. The first was several months ago at a remote area in Arizona and those photos didn’t come out as well as I had hoped. My second attempt here was a last week up in Cedar Breaks and itdefinit... more »

My second attempt here was a last week up in Cedar Breaks and it definitely went a little better, although I think I need to reduce the shutter time slightly. I look forward to playing around with this time of photography a lot more in the future and adding some Milky Way shots to my portfolio  :).

Here’s one of my favorite shots of the entrance to the Subway. This area is always quite slick from the continuously flowing water. Last December when I did this hike I lost my footing on the slippery ice and went sliding on my backside for several feet. A lot of photographers like to move around with their cameras attached to their tripods but in sketchy areas like this I find it best to put in my bag. It takes a bit longer when shooting but I can think of a number of times that this has helped save my expensive camera gear.

I got the best compliment on this photo from my wife. Normally her comments on my work range from “That’s nice” to “Mmmm Hmmm”, and the occasional “Ewww”, and once, (I didn’t speak to her for the rest of the night), she said my image looked like a postcard. This time however, she said “Wow, that’s art!” I have to say that I’m happy to have such a compliment from her  :).

About This Photo:

I was walking along the Virgin River and I began to notice these interesting patterns in the sand so I scouted around until I found a leaf in the right place. As I was setting up and framing my shot the gentle water carried a second leaf to a stop right next to the first. I was happy to include the second leaf with the first which seemed to stop there just for my purposes:).

Do you ever stage photos like this? Personally, I don’t like to stage my photos but I see it all the time, particularly this fall at Zion. I saw a photographer open a ziplock bag full of leaves she collected on her hike to the Subway and place them in strategic positions for her compositions, there was another guy splashing water onto an area of rock to make it wet and more pleasing for his image. My favorite was when I was shooting at the Subway though. I was setting up to take this shot and another photographer who was shooting next to me actually picked up a handful of leaves that were naturally in my foreground to move it to where he was shooting! I was so stunned that someone would do that but I just laughed to myself, moved forward and recomposed my shot.

It’s all personal preference I suppose and I mean no offense to those who do stage little scenes like this (except the guy at the Subway who stole my leaves), but I always prefer natural looking scenes. How about you?

I spent the evening in Cedar Breaks last night getting some shots at sunset and afterwards. Being around 10,000 feet in altitude, it gets extremely chilly with the temperature dropping into the high teens – fortunately the wind which has always been gusting every time I’ve been was relatively calm this time. I got a few nice shots at sunset and waited for the sky to begin darkening so I could get some star shots. This was from the “in between” time when the stars just start to pop out. This is a single 30 second exposure at iso 400. I have to say that I’m extremely impressed with the range of detail in this shot.

This is best to viewed in a lightbox by clicking on the image!

I had a great day hiking the Subway yesterday. The weather was perfect, the scenery outstanding and I felt totally at peace. If you’ve never done the Subway before, it can be quite a challenging hike. Overall, the totally hike is 8 miles of climbing over boulders, crossing the creek and wading through cold water. It’s not an easy hike, but it’s definitely worth it!

It’s easy in a place like this to focus on the larger picture and neglect the little details like this. I noticed that every few minutes a leaf would break away and float past this small cascade so I composed my shot and I waited. In this case, I definitely feel like my patience was rewarded!

The past month has been crazy for me! Finding a house, packing, loading, moving, unloading, assembling baby furniture… The list goes on. It’s been a great time but very busy. We are finally settled in our rental house here in Cedar City and we’re loving it so far. I can’t believe that Kristi’s due date is just eight weeks away now! Where has the time gone? In the mean time, I will be exploring this beautiful area of Utah.

Yesterday I made my way to the little town of Kanarraville 20 minutes south of here to photograph this beautiful little slot canyon. Although the fall colors at this altitude are long gone, the canyon itself did not disappoint and lots of little water falls and plenty of (cold) water. I am hoping to make my way up to Cedar Breaks tomorrow evening for sunset before heading off to hike the Subway in Zion on Tuesday. It’s going to be a great week – stay tuned!

In the mean time, I will be exploring this beautiful area of Utah.

Yesterday I made my way to the little town of Kanarraville 20 minutes south of here to photograph this beautiful little slot canyon. Although the fall colors at this altitude are long gone, the canyon itself did not disappoint and lots of little water falls and plenty of (cold) water. I am hoping to make my way up to Cedar Breaks tomorrow evening for sunset before heading off to hike the Subway in Zion on Tuesday. It’s going to be a great week – stay tuned!

Here’s a shot from my trip up to Lake Powell a couple months ago. The drive to Alstrom Point went quite smooth up until the last mile or so when it became a matter of driving over rock the following a road. All in all, the two and a half hour drive was quite worth it to get this view of Lake Powell. Gunsight Butte (pictured below) and Padre Bay are absolutely something to behold as the light sinks lower in the sky. For this shot, I waited until just after the sun went down to catch that last warm glow. Enjoy!

Is it me, or do stormy skies like this almost always look better in black & white? It really does something to bring out the texture and drama of the clouds that sometimes get lost when there’s color. I was planning to hike to Upper Cathedral Lake this day which is about 4.5 miles each way but as the storm started moving in I knew that wasn’t going to happen. There is a MUCH different feeling watching a thunderstorm move in a 9,000 feet! Suddenly the threat of lighting strikes seems much more real…

Here’s an image from Mono Lake that I just processed yesterday! The previous day’s sunset was obscured by a passing storm but that meant that the sunrise the next morning was beautiful as the storm was clearing up. It was fun taking a look around and realizing that it didn’t matter which direction I shot because the colors were everywhere!

We’re Moving to Utah!

I wanted to update you on a couple things that Kristi and I have going on. First of all, after quite a bit of talking and planning, Kristi and I are going to be moving to Southern Utah at the end of October. Moving has been something we’ve talked about for quite awhile and our addition of a newborn has finally pushed us into action! The desire to find a smaller community where we can raise our kid(s) is very high among our priorities, but this also puts me a lot closer to many places that I love to photograph and will allow me to spend less time away from my family which is a huge plus for me as well. Things are extremely hectic right now but I have plenty of surprises in store for you on my blog in the near future so stay tuned for that! If any of my Arizona friends would like to volunteer to help load up the moving truck(s) on October 28th just let me know – Iwelco... more »

One of the things that I learned from my wife is never forget the little things:)  . I knew that my visit to Yosemite was to come well after the peak of the wildflower season. Still, I was hoping to find a few flowers hanging on here and there and I did. The wide angle sweeping landscape shots with Yosemite’s epic peaks in the background were out so I decided to get in close. I’m very happy with the result.
