This is a photo blog of self expression. All the images I post are self assignments driven by the need for more creativity in my life. This is my escape from the everyday shooting as a professional photographer.
Shadows are so under rated in most peoples minds. I have had students showing me a photo and then start apologizing for the shadows! Some images can be all about shadows. This photo is an example of the subject being the shadow. As I walked behind my daughter and her friend I saw their long shadows in the evening light. Camera settings were f 3.5 1/250 ISO 400. I converted the RGB file to BW then changed it back to RGB and added a warm tone using Adobe Photoshop.
High speed photography can capture things that happen so fast they are not seen by normal observation. Using a 200mm lens at f/2.8 with a shutter speed of 1/1000 I was able to capture the energy of the swimmer as he worked his way to a finish.
