Photo Friday: Leading Lines

January 19, 2018

This week, I had a convergence of photo assignments.  Both my school, and website challenge called for leading lines.  Here is my response.  I love how the sled contrasts with the rest of the scene.

For some reason after taking this picture, I felt really excited about it.

Strangely enough, I love winter pictures in black and white.  This shot was taken during the second snow storm to hit the Portland area this season.

Some people will do anything to keep the snow off their head, like this woman and her umbrella.

Photo Friday: Making Up for Lost Time

February 13, 2015

snowy winter

Maine is well known for getting a lot of snow every Winter.  Four, or five feet is not unheard of, and it usually starts in December, and sticks around until the Spring thaw.

This Winter we didn’t see any real snow until the very end of January, with the storm “Juno”, and it hasn’t stopped dumping on us yet.  We have over four feet on the ground currently, and another storm starts tomorrow expecting another foot and a half; all this within three weeks.

I guess you can say nature is making up for lost time.

Raw Force

December 29, 2012

I have a confession.  I have heard all the arguments for and against switching to raw, but I wanted to stick with Jpeg out of fear.  You can call it fear of change, or fear of botching it up; the truth is, I didn’t know how to convert it to jpeg to work with my computer, and I was too lazy to look at the instructions.  There, I said it!

Now that I have that out of the way, let’s get down to the meat of this article.  A couple of days ago, I watch Jared Polin, on youtube, talk about the benefits of using raw, and yes it might be a little more work, but it’s a hundred times more versatile than using jpeg.  After seeing his proof, I revisited my software instructions and found the conversion button.  So now, I can adjust the raw files to the image I want, (not what the camera wants), and convert it after I’m done with it.

As of yesterday, I made the switch completely to raw, and here’s a couple of images I took with it.

Day 70: Snow Blindness

Snow Blindness

 

I stand in your radiance

Trying to see,

But you are so bright

All I see is you.
