Aurora over the Glacial Lagoon in Iceland

I am back home after two fantastic back to back workshops in Iceland.  The aurora is a magnificent sight to see but difficult to photograph in a unique way. I have posted my images from Iceland at I hope you enjoy the images and we will certainly be back to Iceland in the future. For now our other workshops are filling up very fast and Antarctica 2014 has only 3 spots left. This will be the first time we fly both ways to Antarctica and avoid the Drake Passage. Sun Valley is sold out and Greenland has only 10 spaces left. My workshop at Santa Fe and with Greg Gorman also have only limited space and our return to the amazing Atacama Desert has only 5 spaces left.

March 3rd, 2013 |  by No comments

Wow what an amazing February and here comes March… We got back from Antarctica last Saturday and started a workshop limited to 10 folks in Palm Beach Gardens. Tomorrow I leave for two Digital Photo Destination workshops in Iceland with good friend JP where we will be photographing Ice Caves and the Aurora. Our local dear friend and Icelandic photographic expert Ragnar just had some of his images featured in Time Magazine. Our workshop folks are truly being offered the best possible experience in Iceland.

My images from our Antarctica trip are posted. It was really an amazing trip and I concentrated on reflections and ice under water which i really find fascinating. I love Antarctica and JP and I have another trip scheduled , our 6th trip on February 16-25th 2014. This trip will include bypassing the infamous Drake Passage by flying to and from the continent. This trip is selling out fast with only 9 spots now left.20130213_danko_island_0289

John Paul Caponigro and I (DPD) in conjunction with Einar Eriendsson and Focus on Naturejust concluded our Iceland Workshop. We had a fantastic time and are already planning to return this coming winter to hold a workshop on Auroras, Ice Caves  and glaciers and aerials which we will announce soon. If you would like to

2013 is a super year for auroras – a twelve-year peak. If you are interested in early notification about this workshop which will be limited to 14 people, please write to

I realized on this trip that Ice is my muse and wanted to share some of the highlights of our Iceland trip which is the first part of our Arctic Adventure. Tomorrow we start out Greenland Workshop and will post those images when I return.

Day One in Reykjavik with Seth Resnick – Focus on Nature Workshop

August 7th, 2011 |  by No comments

After coming within seconds of missing my connection to Reykjavik from JFK due to a Delta flight attendant sending me to the wrong terminal, I am very happy to finally arrive in Reykjavik, Iceland for my workshop. Landed and wasted no time getting out to make some images in and around Reykjavik. It was Gay Pride Day which is a large festival where just about everyone comes out and the weather was perfect.

Creative Shooting Workshops – Santa Fe, Mendocino, Iceland & Patagonia

May 20th, 2011 |  by No comments

Perfecting your images takes work. Today almost everyone owns a camera. And, yes, the process of taking a picture has become so simple that even a child can do it. But it takes a truly special vision to capture the world in a graphically brilliant manner in 1/500 of a second. So over the years I have picked up many photographic exercises that I regularly practice, and that I teach my students to keep them in good visual shape and make them better photographers. When I teach a creative workshop we of course go to fantastic locations but the workshops concentrate on techniques to polish your images. We will also do daily critiques to help you further refine your techniques. Here are a few of my favorites:

Triangles in the Corners
When we are attracted to a subject we tend to look towards the center of the viewfinder and rarely pay attention to the periphery. It is in the periphery where we find the things that detract from the image. It may be the branch sticking in, or a pattern of color. As an exercise when you are framing an image take your eyes and glance to the periphery in the viewfinder. Look for triangles being formed, and if you see them it is a good indication that you need to move in tighter on your subject. If you have a triangle in the corner of one of your images and want to determine if it adds to the photograph or detracts from it, cover up everything except the triangle. If the triangle is important, keep it in. More than likely, though, the triangle will be an area of black or white or a branch and by itself is anything but a good image. In this case crop the image and remove the triangles. Space is defined and determined by shapes and forms. Positive space is where shapes and forms exist; negative space is the empty space around shapes and forms. For images to have a sense of balance use positive and negative space to counter balance each other.

Triangles of dead space in the upper right and left

Image is much cleaner and stronger without the triangles of dead space in the corner


Shadows and light create drama and far too many photographers think that shadows ruin an image. Try creating images using shadows and making the shadows darker or lighter than they appear to the eye by controlling the exposure. Doing so can help truly create dramatic images. Without shadows, a subject has no form, or texture and appears flat. Shadows don’t have to be dominant and harsh to achieve the effects of form, and texture. They can be soft, to show the most delicate light, shape and form. Generally, harsh, black shadows cause problems especially in reproduction because of loss of detail but from a compositional standpoint, black shadows can be very useful in balancing a scene and directing attention to the point of interest. Harsh shadows can also be excellent for emphasizing texture and form, for creating interesting patterns, and for directing attention.

Lion prints appear concave with the image viewed this way

Same image and now the lion prints appear convex. This is simply based on how your brain perceives the shadow


We will study many creative exercises to enhance creativity. Learn more in one of our week long creative workshops:
