Blur Guide Coming, BAA Bulletin #338, Want Bald Eagles?

It took me several hours to design the cover for the Blur Guide. You can see another version and learn what others think about the cover here. Feel free to let us know what you think of the cover by making a comment below.

A Guide to Pleasing Blurs by Denise Ippolito & Arthur Morris

Denise and I have been working on the Blur Guide for too many months. It should be available for purchase at the end of this week. I am waiting for my Acrobat 10 CD to arrive 🙂 If you enjoy trying to create pleasingly blurred images, the blur guide is for you. We cover both in-camera and Photoshop techniques, from pan blurs to wind blurs to flash blurs to composite blurs to camera shake blurs to radial blurs and on and on and on…. Our subject matter ranges from birds to flowers to wildlife to water and scenics and more. We will announce its publication both here and via Bulletin.

I created this slow shutter speed/moving water blur on the recently concluded Bear Boat IPT. Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS L lens with the EOS 1D MIV. ISO 200. Evaluative metering +1 stop: 1/4 sec. at f/20.

BIRDS AS ART Bulletin #338 is on line now and can be viewed here. It includes some of my very favorite new bear boat images as well as the trip report.

This image of a Bald Eagle landing was created with the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens and the 1.4X II TC (hand held at 225mm), and the EOS-1Ds MII. ISO 400. Evaluative metering +2/3 stop: 1/1600 sec. at f/5 set manually.


Because of a cancellation, there is a single opening on this jointly led IPT: HOMER BALD EAGLE INSTRUCTIONAL PHOTO-TOUR with Arthur Morris and Robert O’Toole. March 18-22, 2011. 5-FULL DAYS: $3249. Limit: 12 (Including the leaders). All three Homer IPTs sold out within hours after being announced to the BAA Friends List. The Friends List consists of IPT veterans who fit in the happy camper category. If you have been on an IPT and/or you are a truly happy camper and would like your name added to the BAA Friends List, please e-mail me at and include a short note.

Enjoy Homer the way it used to be with two great leaders and more eagles than you could have ever dreamed about many at point blank range. Sessions on boat and on land. Legal eagle feeding. The best Photoshop instruction anywhere.

Happy campers only please 🙂 If you would like to fill this last slot please call me asap at 863-692-2806 and leave a message if no answer. I am posting this here first as a thank you to the many folks who subscribe to the Blog and visit regularly.
