You can go back again!

There is an old adage, “You can’t go back again” but that certainly doesn’t pertain to photographs.  Yesterday I was working on some video lessons on Lightroom Classic, when I got sucked into a black hole and taken back in time to a trip to Tibet 7 years ago.  I discovered images I had taken to make panoramas but never stitched, old images I processed but now can do better with the more modern tools in the Develop module...

Exposing for Edge of Light

When I was kayaking on Sunday morning I saw a Great Blue Heron down river and noticed some shadow areas behind the bird.  I knew I may have a chance at some “edge of light” photos.  I wasn’t sure how tolerate this bird would be to my presence so I made some advance preparations for my photos...

After spending some time at the point clouds formed and I wished I had carried my filter. I thought about it for a while and decided to take 40 images at 8 sec intervals, with the thought of combining them later. Here is the result...

Coyotes and my equipment

...Photographing wildlife at the game farm allows you to fine tune some of your photographic skills. I was concentrating on using fill flash to add a catch light in the animal’s eyes and to bring out a few more details in their fur.  I have found from past experience that when using fill flash on animals the flash needs to be extended at least a foot above the camera to prevent the equivalent of red eye in the animals. In order to do this my camera/flash setup was rather interesting...
