I almost didn’t end up using this one… I didn’t get either the clouds/sunset I wanted, or the reflection setup I’d hoped for, but what I like about it is the arc of the rock with a little bit of some people visible toward the end. The area to the lower left is just a […]
I’ve always preferred including people in silhouette if I’m taking photos in public that have people in them. My inner introvert is a little to strong and keeps me from getting up in people’s business. But having people in landscape photos really can enhance them greatly. I think this one is a perfect example – […]
The part of the Island I wanted to get to was chained off to vehicle traffic, and I didn’t feel like walking the mile or so in that evening, so I opted for a less scenic stretch of shoreline.
This was taken on a recent trip to the U.P. while enjoying the sunset from Black Rocks at Marquette’s Presque Isle. The few evenings I tried to do some sunset photos that trip the weather didn’t really cooperate to provide the right kinds of clouds (almost none) so I ended up doing a lot more of the silhouette of people kind of thing.
I’ve taken a lot of photos of sandhill cranes… they are fascinating birds. And I love how both these and their cousins the blue herons sound like dinosaurs. I wanted to get a bit more up and personal this time, since I have a lot of the same kinds of shots, but one of these […]
I’m not sure what the artist was looking to capture with this, but the girl looks terrified to me. And mom looks ticked off. Maybe she was out playing too late? I’ll have to look for a description next time I’m there, maybe there’s a label somewhere. Most statues I’ve photographed have been in cemeteries, […]
The stretch of water on the Maumee River that runs through Side Cut Park isn’t always very picturesque. There’s a lot of mud and brown most days of the year. However, sometimes I’m really happy with the way the variables come together. In this case, with the sky very empty of clouds and the sun […]
As someone with some pretty strong introvert tendencies, taking photos with people in them has always been intimidating to me. As a result, I’ve ended up doing more of the ninja approach, where identity isn’t really able to be known from the image, and I’m often not near enough to be seen taking the photo. […]
Probably the hardest thing I’ve found for editing is clouds. Especially sunset clouds. I didn’t work on this photo in editing for a while because I really wasn’t happy with the clouds. The main one was actually from a plane that had gone by a while earlier. But, especially near the sun it’s hard to […]
