Love Scale When It Works

I was there, I know the size, depth and majesty that was the sweeping landscape before my lens. You weren’t there so you don’t know. Now I try my best to tell that story by including a foreground, middle ground and background and while that helps, it really doesn’t convey some of the time the expanse of space the lens is encompassing. That’s why when it works, I love including a reference in the photo to give you a sense of scale to the landscape. Shooting with other photographers, I had the opportunity to create a couple of examples. Shooting with the D5 / 70-200f4AFS I made the top photo which has the feel of a portrait but by shooting at f/4, the range out of focus in the background says just how far away they really are.

Desert Pink is So Sweet

For the third morning in a row, the Winnemucca Desert produced a gorgeous sunrise.

The dust in the air in the desert creates the softest and sweetest pink sunrise. Many think of this color as a New Mexico sunrise but they have them in Nevada just as grand with possibly bigger sweeps of landscape to combine them with. The key to making the capture is first setting the White Balance to either cloudy or manually to 9000k to capture all the subtleties of that pink. I shot with the D5 / 24-70VR for think with early light then switched to 70-200f4AFS once the light got...
