Look for the Shadows
There are times I just wanna take photos but the light, well the light just sucks! When this occurs the first thing I tend to look for are dramatic shadows because that’s what hard light is really great at creating. When I find those shadows I look at what is creating them (other than the sun) and then see if there is a story to be had creating the photograph. That how it was when we ventured down into Flaming Gorge. What we found was not what I was thinking!
The Flaming Gorge Bridge isn’t huge but the span it bridges is deep. There are all sorts of signs saying don’t walk (or dive) on the bridge. But the light, the hard light, and its shadow were perfect. There were two cracks, almost perfectly symmetrical on the road leading up to the bridge. Grabbing the Z6 / 8-15Fish, I got right up to those cracks and made an easy, simply click. The storytelling and shadows encouraged me to become a troll and head underneath it. There, the ropes of those much more adventurous then I awaited summer a swing out and down. In shooting B&W in the Z6 produces gorgeous results that are all done in camera. Even in bad light, there are photos to be made, just gotta look for the shadows.
