Portrait or landscape?

These orientations aren't limited to portraits or landscapes. For instance the landscape orientation of this shot pulls the trees closer focusing attention on thier leaves and colors. The cool thing however was the colors on the hillside along with the remains of fog lifting from the morning rains... Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes a closeup isn't as good

I shot this photo of the valley. The clouds were lifting and backlit by the sun. The feeling of the shot is certainly a fall theme with the mown hay, equipment and trees turning colors. Then I got the idea that to zoom in on the three bushes and their three different colors would be neat. However,... Sign in to see full entry.

What you see...

Photography is art. Train your eye to seek out things about your surroundings that you might otherwise overlook. The other day, I took the camera out to take the photos of the clouds and fall colors in my last post. As I looked around, I saw other things that caught me attention. One was a bush...

Fall colors paint the scene

The colors are coming around. After an early morning rain, the skies stopped leaking and the sun broke through. This allows shots of the still roiling clouds blended with the fall colors. The past few days have been pretty hazy due to prescribed burns in the area and everyone else burning their own... Sign in to see full entry.

Two views

Meanwhile back at the racetrack...I was working the two extremes of action photos, the high shutter speed, action stopping shot and the speed illusional low shutter speed shot. First, the high speed shot that freezes the action. As you can see, every spoke, every knob on the tires and all other... Sign in to see full entry.

It seemed like a good idea at the time

I saw this tree the other day, but before I could get my camera, the sun went down. So today I was ready, I had the tripod out and everything. The sun goes down early across the valley which makes a dark background and the tree literally lights up from the backlighting of the sun. The first shot is... Sign in to see full entry.

Sundown comes around

As the sun continuted to set, the colors were becoming more saturated and the clouds were having their own affect away from the ground. If you can't get rid of the power poles, use them for contrast. The next thing I found interesting was the pattern above the clouds, rarely does one see those bands... Sign in to see full entry.

More on that sunset

The second photo in this series utilizes the zoom available on the "normal" lens to bring the center of attention closer. The sun, barely visible in the first photo now occupies center stage as the clouds are taking on even more color. That tree is now illumitated. What I was going for here was the...

Sunsets, an old favorite

I will take a picture of almost any sunset, my files are brimming with them. This particualr sunset had a problem, things in the foreground, things like buildings and power lines. Add to that, sunsets change quite rapidly so as the colors grew in intesity and patterns emerged, I changed locations... Sign in to see full entry.

Time to see what I can do

I know I have talked about techniques before, anticipationg action, panning, framing and this weekend I thought I should put my own tips into practice, which by the way, makes perfect, or so I hear. Anyway, one way to impart action into a photo is the panning method. Here I used the Tv setting (Time... Sign in to see full entry.
