Photos of the Boundary Waters and More

     I love to take pictures and for the amount of time I spend at it I think I do a pretty good job.  I live in a wild and beautiful place so it’s pretty easy to get pictures of outstanding scenery and wildlife.  Being in the right place at the right time helps to get a good photo but taking the picture is the simple part.  That’s pretty much all I do, take the picture, upload it to my computer and post it on my blog or facebook.  Sometimes when I look at beautiful photos I forget about all of the possibilities of making a photo look even better.

     Photographers are an amazing bunch of people.  They have to have the eye for photography, equipment to haul around, be in the right place and be able to digitally enhance their photos.  These days they have their work cut out for them.  In the past a photographer would just take a picture and submit a slide to an editor.  Now they must spend time digitally enhancing the photo to make it look outstanding. 

     Bryan Hansel lives in Grand Marais, MN and is a top-notch photographer.  He is talented at photography and at teaching photography.  He offers classes throughout the year and is even willing to offer one at Voyageur sometime.  If you’re interested in taking a class sometime either check out his dates or email me and we can set up a time to try to do it up at Voyageur. 

     Take the time to look at his website and the amazing photos he has of the Boundary Waters and more.  Here’s one of this photos taken on Saganaga Lake in the Boundary Waters.
