In the Sierra, Always Have Your Camera!

We headed down to the airport to pick up Stephanie so like always, I grabbed the camera as we left the house. Looking out the window told me what lens I should have attached.

It’s the summer and the pattern has turned so we get our very dramatic afternoons. The thunderheads started to form early all around Mammoth but not over Mammoth. I knew heading to the flats, they would be off in the distance and not overhead which is why I selected the one lens I took along.

The clicks were easy, I parked in the middle of the road, shot out the window what you see at around 80mm, -1 exp comp with AWB. Pretty easy stuff. I knew with the drama in the sky these would be B&W photos. That was done in a SNAP in ACR 6.1 and then a simple click into Photoshop and another click on the Poster Action and it’s back out shooting. It’s all pretty easy stuff for anyone to do. The hardest thing for most folks though is that first step, always having your camera with you.
