Path 06

Repeat last weeks exercise and do another hike. Pick a totally different landscape.

Path 06

This time I drove into the high mountains and photographed at about 10,000 feet elevation. Keep in mind to show the path in your images, if possible. As always, enjoy this exercise!

It is always amazing to me how much I overlook. If you take a walk and look along the path you find subjects that you normally miss. There is the beautiful coast, the ocean, the cliffs etc., but what about the little things the little wildflowers that people step on, the twig, the small stones, the dead pine needles etc. Do photographic exercises helps you to discover, to see in a new way, to stay sharp. So go out and pick another path and photograph some more this week-end. Be passionate about you images and be the best you can be regardless of the camera you own, your age, your handicaps, your excuses etc.  Just go out and photograph!

It was incredibly beautiful walking along the coastline. In this image I decided to catch the shadow of the tree as part of my foreground and the ocean and clouds as my background. I also like the contrast of the warm and cold colors.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!

 

Path 01

When was the last time that you took a hike either in the great outdoors or through a city. if not, please start walking and take your camera with you. I challenge you to take a hike and produce five image. All five images should have the path in the frame! If you want to stretch yourself take just one lens.

I did a hike at Point Lobos, South of Carmel, CA at the beautiful California coast. Have fun, get out and get photographing!

Morning Glory 04

Morning Glory 04

After photographing Morning glories for a while I discovered that I like the images with a shallow depths of field a lot better than the one with large f stops. In this image I used a 180m macro lens with f4.5. My eyes automatically wander to the sharp edge of the blossom. I also like the color contrast between the white blossom and the red blurred background.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!
