Great Color Comes from Exposure!

Willey’s House, NH captured by Z 6II / Z70-200f2.8

It’s real simple, you can achieve great color by simply, wait for it … underexposing! I shoot using Matrix Metering, Aperture Priority. On a morning like this with the killer saturated light, I simply underexposed by -2/3, and bam, done! This is right out of the camera, Photoshop used only to make a small Jpeg for posting. Try it, you’ll like it!

Western Light Adventure This Weekend!

Santa Fe Trail merchant captured by Z 6II / Z105mc

Come and join me and the crew at Precision Camera for two days celebrating light. Friday night we’re going to be in the theater looking at all the functions of light and how they affect our photography. More importantly, we’ll talk about all the ways you can tame light to tell your visual story.

Then on Saturday, we’re shooting at the Buggy Barn Museum putting into practice what we learned and more the night before. We have great buildings, props, and models to use as a canvas for our light. Come and join us for a great two days celebrating light with our cameras!

Moose Podcast #261 – “Photograph is Not A Number!”

Crawford Notch, NH captured by Z 6II / Z70-200f2.8

This episode of the Moose Podcast #261 – “Photography is Not A Number “, We all desire that great photograph, and we desire it to come only as hard as it was to get in front of that photograph. That is often not what happens so we try to make it a numbers game. That doesn’t work either.

It’s All In the Step

Bison captured by Z 6II / 180-400VR

Some things about a Bison you can predict with amazing accuracy. One is their step and head. Their head will pull to either the left or right with every step. The head pulls to the side of the tailing front leg. In this case, the head is pulling left as the left front leg is in the back. I tend to always shoot with the front leg closest to the lens in the back for this reason. The gesture in the head is better and when they are walking into the light, you get that nice skim across it. A simple piece of biology you can use in your shooting.

This episode of the Moose Podcast #260 – “Can’t Leaf Them Out “, I’ve had the good fortune to wrap myself in this country fall color from coast to coast for many decades. There is one photo though that still eludes. Do I have a plan to capture it this year? Yes!

The Saying Doesn’t Always Hold

Female Northern Pintail captured Z 6II / 800f5.6 AFS w/TC-1.25

A gray day doesn’t mean it’s a bummer! Yeah, it’s hard to get out when there is a heavy overcast or like this morning, drenching damp fog, but in the fall when it comes to critters, there will always be a ray of hope. On this morning at a lovely sewage plant (yes, I’m serious), the ducks were floating about. With the gray bouncing from above and beneath (water reflecting the gray), this load female Norther Pintail was a gem. The water was so still though she is a speck in the frame, her warm colors and profile fill it with warmth. It’s a real simple click, the kind I so enjoy finding and being able to make on those days when I know the saying doesn’t always hold true.
