Sharing Christmas Memories

Christmas 3 photo

Sharing Christmas Memories…For over 100 years families have been making and sharing Christmas photo memories. With the recent changes in the photo industry from film to digital we are now taking more photos but making almost no long term family keepsakes for our children and grandchildren to remember and share from holidays past. For many people digital photos will only last as long as their computer or phone lasts. My suggestion is to give the gift of a family keepsake and print 12 of your most special photos from this holiday season and put them in a shoebox in the closet labeled “Family Holiday Photos 2015”. I believe that in 25 years, when the children are grown, that these photos will be the only photos they will have of their childhood family Christmas. Please share if you agree. Happy Holidays to all! Gary Wagner

New Book! Digital Black and White Landscape Photography by Gary Wagner. Amherst Media Publisher

Black and White Landscape Photography by Gary Wagner. Published by Amherst Media.

Digital Black and White Landscape Photography by Gary Wagner.  Amherst Media located in Buffalo, NY has published a book of 60 of my black and white landscape photographs. Along with the photographs I have written a page or two on why I took and image and how it was made. This is a “how to” book intended for photographers interested in black and white digital photography and improving their techniques. I have spent the past 8 years learning about digital photography and taking and making prints using my new techniques. There are many books on the market today that discuss digital black and white photography and I have read almost all of them. My book is an easy to follow book that explains each of the 60 images included in the book and the steps I took to complete the process from camera to print. The book will be available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble in August and at selected book sellers everywhere.

Black and White Magazine Portfolio Excellence Award, Sierra Snow Photos!

Black and White Magazine Portfolio Excellence Award 2015 - Sierra Mountain Snow Photos, Gary Wagner

Black and White Magazine Portfolio Excellence Award 2015 – Sierra Mountain Snow Photos, Gary Wagner

Black and White Magazine published four pages of my Sierra Mountain Snow photography in the June 2015 issue. All of my featured snow images are from the Sierra Mountains in the Truckee and Lake Tahoe area and were taken in the last two years. I have been photographing in this area for the last ten years and love all of the seasons and the images they bring. During the last few years the snow level has been less than usual allowing me to get to places I normally would not be able to reach in the middle of the winter. I have seen Sierra snow over 10 feet deep in the peak of the season making travel difficult and covering up many of my favorite land and water features under a thick blanket of white stuff. I do on many occasions use snow shoes to reach locations off the road but travel is slow and cumbersome.

Thanks for reading!

Gary
