Still Training My Eye

June 18, 2018

This was a beautiful surprise, I wish I could do this waterfall more justice. This particular falls is well of 40 feet, and its literally on the side of the road. How awesome is that.

I still struggle at studying a scene and choosing the right composition. I tend to just jump right in and start shooting. Not that there is anything wrong with that style of shooting.  I would like to train my eye to visualize a final shot/finished product before even taking a shot. 

This photo was taken with a Canon 5d m4. ISO 100, Shutter 0.6sec, Aperture f22, at 21mm. I can not remember the stop but I did have an ND filter and a polarizer on the lens. (I was competing with the sun) As all ways this was shot on a tripod. (Two combined images) 

Bittersweet Goodbye (To New Beginnings)

June 11, 2018

First let me say thank you for all the support and concern. Because of that I was determined to not miss a step. 

For those of you who may not know last week Tuesday my original Blog site was hacked beyond recovery. All past blogs have been lost, I have made the decision not  to revive the old blog site with the backups. I have chosen to start fresh and move my blog  to my photography website. (All under one roof)

Also with new beginnings I will start sharing more information about how I've taken the photos I share. People have been asking for a while and I never share. There is no particular reason I just don't want to bore you with technical stuff.  Now that I am sharing settings you will see just how unprepared I am sometimes when it comes to getting the shot. 

This image was taken with a Canon 5D Mark iv, at f8.0, 200mm lens with a 10 stop neutral density filter for 3 minutes and iso 100 on tripod  (I over exposed a touch when shooting but I was able to bring it back in post) 

The Sun's Here

June 5, 2018

In my opinion one of the most annoying things about shouting waterfalls is a sporadic sun. One moment it’s there the next it’s not, that’s not even the bad part. The worst part is when the sun comes out and only covers part of the waterfall, that’s what…

Sorry I do not remember the rest. Unfortunately I did not have a backup of this post. My original blog site was hacked.
