It sounds and feels like a lot – this is my 100th post. Thanks to everyone who visits! I have spent a lot of time running Far North Light and loved every minute. It’s great to have so many people show an interest in seeing things through my lens for a little while.
To commemorate 100 posts I have made major formatting changes. Most notable is the blogs appearance, it now includes a homepage with a slideshow, and will in the future include more galleries and portfolios. Please check out my updated about page as well.
I decided there would be no better way to mark 100 posts then to revisit some of the most popular. Note: as this is the second incarnation of Far North Light some of the images were not previously on the blog, but needed to be revisited regardless.
Do you have a favorite photo that I didn’t include in the best-of? Let me know and I’ll make a follow-up post.
Strange Day was the first 4×5 large-format negative I ever took, and one of my first images ever accepted into a juried art show. The following image is a scanned silver-gelatin fibre print. If I knew how I achieved such black clouds, I would tell you.
Stange Day was taken at Creamers Field, which was a diary farm and is now a migratory wildfowl refuge, and one of my favorite places to photograph. It’s excellent for everything from landscapes to portraits. The next is a wind drift closeup from Creamers, also 4×5.
I don’t often go in search of wildlife, but when given the opportunity do photograph it.
Migrating Canada geese.
One of my favorite posts is from Halloween 2012.
Ravens play on a windy Halloween day.
No compilation post about photography would be complete without some of my photojournalism. From Oct. 17, 2012
Research Vessel Sikuliaq gets its first taste of the water, Marinette, Wis.
And from my coverage of presidential candidate Ron Paul’s visit to Fairbanks.
Ron Paul speaks in Fairbanks, March 4, 2011.
As I’m sure is obvious this is but a small collection of the posts and stories I’ve shared. Many of my personal favorites I put into the homepage slide show. I hope you enjoyed, and stay tuned for many more images!
