I am continuing to play around with macro photography and after finding this feather thought it would make an interesting subject to work with. At this time I am not using focus stacking, that comes next. I included the ruler shot for scale, it’s in mm, which in this case is about 5/8th inch.
Cold, so very cold. Not the kind of day anyone should venture out without proper preparation. It goes beyond being uncomfortable, it’s not just that you can harm your body, it’s the kind of cold that can kill the unprepared. Take it seriously.
Do you ever have those moments when you are out capturing images and get so entranced by the beauty of the scene you almost forget to press the shutter?
When nature and schedules make getting out to do photography challenging, I find alternatives to satisfy my need to create. Light filtering through the bushes outside a basement window presents layers of line, shape and texture to catch the eye.
What often seems to be of cosmic origin is sometimes more terrestrial in nature.
I find it exciting to start a new year by generating a new 2019 folder on my hard drive and in Lightroom. As I look at the list of new folders, I see twelve months of potential. I dream of outings with a camera. I start planning trips to places not yet explored. I look forward to filling each month’s folder with new creations. January already has it’s first entry, can’t wait to add more.
This past Saturday morning, the historic Glensheen mansion in Duluth was opened to photographers for a two hour opportunity to wander with cameras. Glensheen was decked out for the season with twenty five decorated trees, lots of trim and all the little knickknacks you would expect this time of year. Outdoors, the grounds were filled tacky inflatables and other statuettes. Lake Superior added a few touches to the shoreline with some ice.
