Hi and welcome back.
It has been a few weeks since my last post, but with the kids in school and the summer ending I’ll be posting back to my regular schedule.
I was a bit in a professional rut this August, so I decided to jump into shooting landscapes again. I just needed a change of scene.
Last Saturday night I stopped by Gulf Beach in Milford where I live and took a few frames. The sky at sunset was not that great, but I used a Neutral Density and a Magenta filter to add exposure time and color to the otherwise listless sky.
If you shoot landscapes, you should have these filters. I use the Lee Brand:
3 Stop Neutral Density
After raw conversion and some color boost, here are my three faves:
Step outside your comfort zone once in a while or just go back to your roots. I started my career in photography shooting flowers and then rapidly went to landscapes as I loved the light.
Keep your camera with you at all times and shoot as often as you can. I got three great shots out of only 25 frames.
I had fun, met another photographer there, and just chatted the whole time. Get out there and shoot!!
Till next time, happy shooting!
