And the Challange Continues

This movie requires Flash Player 9

I write this after seeing Jake’s statics and I’m feeling a little low. The kid just knows how to shoot ’em! The museum had some great planes out on the tarmac, this F8F Bearcat being just one of them. The museum doesn’t open until 10am and by the time we got out to the aircraft the light had long gone and there were folks sauntering around. So with those two challenges and my big one working with statics, I sent out to clickin.

I shot this knowing that I would have to remove a person (Content Aware) and I was going to B&W. The sky was pretty funky because of the winds kicking up a bunch of dust but otherwise it was bald. The light was on the hard side. That combination dictated how I finished the image, going to B&W. No matter your subject, you should look at the pluses you have and make those work while ignoring the negatives. Too many photographer see the negative and never click to start with. Looking at the positives and make the most of them. The worst that could happen is the image doesn’t work. The most that could happen is you come back with the image and you learned to make the most of those elements you do have in your photograph.
