Just a reminder that the Scott Kelby World Wide Photowalk is coming up next Saturday, October 3, 2015.
CLICK HERE www.kelbyone.com/photowalk and click on Find a Walk. If you are interested in our local walk, type in Brownwood, TX. As of today there are 43 spaces available. This walk should be very interesting as it will be at the Lake Brownwood State Park. There's a variety of subjects to photograph along the trails for nature and landscapes. There are several natural stone buildings built by the CCC in the 1930's with unique architecture. I believe there is a nominal entry fee of $4.00 per vehicle for admintence to the park.
A quick tip about what makes a good landscape photograph. Besides the obvious of having a great subject/location there are three elements that should be in the photograph. A interesting FOREGROUND, MIDDLE GROUND, AND BACKGROUND, each in tack sharp focus. A small Aperture setting of f/16 or f/22 will set the Depth of Field needed to ensure success.
I've decided to add another category to my Portfolio, JUST BLACK AND WHITE. Sometimes I find that an image/subject looks great in Color, and also in Black and White. However, when both versions are presented in the same category it just doesn't work for either of them. Seems like it just takes away the impact or feeling of each when seen together. Some subjects/images just scream to be presented in Black and White, so they deserve their own place in the Portfolio, therefore, the new category.
Check it out, I hope you like it.
Wanted to show an example of what photographers call the Blue Hour, that time shortly after sunset when the night sky turns a deep blue. It only last for a few minutes, but it's a beautiful light for a variety of photographic night-time subjects.
This was taken last night at the Brownwood Feels Like Home Celebration of the Sister's on the Fly Vintage Camper Tour. (Since I only shoot in Raw, I converted the Raw file to a jpeg for presentation purposes and the adjusted image was done in Adobe Lightroom cc 2015).
