DLWS NH Day1b AM

This movie requires Flash Player 9 One constant challenge is how to record the color. When I finished this photo is class for a lesson, the question came up, “Why Black & White?” This movie requires Flash Player 9 The reason is the detail in the texture. I feel it’s lost in the color. I framed it up for the detail in the texture, end of story. Photos captured by D3x, 70-200VR2 on Lexar UDMA digital...

DLWS NH Day1 PM

This movie requires Flash Player 9 Water, we just love water and Silver Cascade provided a great subject. Can you tell it’s raining? The overcast was great because it not only provided a slower shutter speed but it saturates the colors making the photo comes together. Photo capture by D3x, 70-200VR2 on Lexar UDMA digital...

DLWS NH Day1 AM

This movie requires Flash Player 9 NH is just blowing me away! So are the great folks we have with us here at DLWS. As per tradition, is was Monday morning shake down where we shake out the cobwebs and camera settings and start filling pixels with passion. No better place then the slimpicity of the waters of Wildcat River. This movie requires Flash Player 9 “What’s the Subject?” That’s a common question I ask not only myself of my photos but those seeking help. It’s your responsibility as photographers to make your subject smack the viewer right between the eyes with it. That is the challenge. NH is providing, it’s up to me to meet it.

To Include or Not Include?

This movie requires Flash Player 9 One of the very cool locations we’re going to share with the DLWS gang this week is this old train trestle. In while, while you’re reading this, we’re out shooting and having fun, wish you were with us. As you can see, I didn’t wait for the group, I shoot the trestle while scouting. Here’s my issue, do I include the V joint or not? This movie requires Flash Player 9 What’s the subject? What’s the design? What shows the age and depth? I don’t have the answer yet. I took it both ways because I don’t and I will be pondering that question until I reshoot it. Yeah, I will reshoot it to answer this question and go back with a PC-E lens to clean up all the lines I can. I love a challenge! Photos captured by D3x, 24f1.4AFS on Lexar UDMA digital...

There’s Color in Fall Color

This movie requires Flash Player 9 “What color, you turned it into B&W!” Well, B&W and all the shades of gray are color to me and when the right “fall color” images provides me with all those colors in the B&W spectrum, I go for it! This movie requires Flash Player 9 How did I get the B&W? The answer is in our video library, look under digital darkroom, Silver Efex Pro! It works magic and I just love its magic. Clean, simple and fast, what more can you ask for from a software/pluggin?! And what’s required in a good B&W? A clean black and a clean white, where, how and how much is up to you!
