Shooting Sunsets

Sunset_0930How do you capture what you see in a beautiful, colorful sunset? I would suggest underexposing  by using the manual settings of aperture and shutter speed or the +/- button in program. For color augmentation, I set my camera to vivid or my white balance to the cloudy setting. These two changes to a normal exposure should result in a great sunset photograph.

Urban Photo Walks

Toby_0914 We had a great series of photo walks this year. I hope you can join us on our next adventure. Downtown Reno put on quite a show for us. And the soft tones of Carson City provided an interesting counterpoint. We all learned new techniques and shared ideas. Thank you for your participation.

2013-Fall trees_webIs it better to shoot the whole scene or move in close for a detail shot. Always take more than one angle, more than one exposure and more than one composition. Fall_2013_web

Alternative photo processes are all the rage these days.
It’s very interesting to see what people are producing through a blend of film and digital.
Here is one of my attempts.

Summer Photos

What a great time to get out and use your camera. I suggest you look for unusual color and light to make your pictures “"stand out from the crowd”. Silhouettes, reflections and simple compositions.

Copying Old Photos

I’ve been talking a lot lately of taking pictures of your family heirloom photographs with a digital camera. Using a tripod and window light one can create a very good digital copy. The heirloom photographs can be put back in a cool dry place and one can share their “new” digital copies with family and friends. Here are a few examples from my family.

The Big Valley

I love shooting Sunsets in the San Joaquin valley.

This day I was surprised with thousands of migrating birds.

One has to shoot fast as the light changes rapidly.

But the rewards are timeless.
