A few weeks ago, I have the fun of photographing a trio of fire dancers for their official company portrait for Everlife Entertainment at sunset. It was a fun, yet challenging, photo session. The three stars were fantastic to work with and am looking forward to another session. Perhaps maybe in the mountains against a star-filled sky?
Ever wonder how some photographers can balance the light of a rising Moon with the Sun lighting the mountains? How they get that “perfectly” exposed Moon with a beautiful color on the mountain peaks? It’s really not that hard.
Waiting on the Moon
From sweeping landscapes to portraits to news, these are my “best” photos from 2016. A night shooting the Perseids at Artist Point, documenting the Presidential Election, a surprise engagement, a rare snowstorm, and vigil for the Pulse Nightclub shooting victims topped my favorites.
After a rough edit, these are the 18 I’ve picked as my favorites. To see my rough edit, visit my gallery Year in Photos: My Favorites.
Happy Holidays from us at Paul Conrad Photography in the Pacific Northwest.
From the sunrise over the Cascade Mountains to sunset over Bellingham Bay. To old friends and new, t new destinations or an old hangout. From quiet mountain trails or a busy Pike Place Market.
We want to thank you for every like, view, and comment. We will see you next year as the Sun rises over the Cascade Mountains.

Another Saturday game at Civic Field in Bellingham, Wash. I was back after making my deadline filing my images of Lynden defeating Black Hills in District 2A Playoff in the first round. Now the Sun has set and a full Super Moon filled the sky.
