The ability to extract small details from a scene, whether a single flower, an abstract pattern from some common item, or detailed images of small items for online auctions, is the forte of many digital cameras.

Last year, I had the opportunity to photograph one of the world's most magnificent waterfalls. I traveled halfway around the world to capture the beauty and awe of this exotic and remote travel destination. I was filled with great photographic expectations.

I love shooting outdoor portraits! As a matter of fact, it has become my "signature style."
