Oh my word, can you say slacker?! I completely missed last weeks from clicking to creating, and this week is going to be fast as well. We are so busy getting stuff created for this winters art shows, and then there was the 4 days with the horses……
Anyway, this week the Dogwood 52 was to create an image after a song. Since all I did was photograph wild horses this week, the Rolling Stones song Wild Horses seemed the best.
A song seemed pretty easy to create an image for. What song would you do?
I like to walk in new and different places. I mentioned yesterday we spent the night last week at Independence Rock in Wyoming. We have been here before, but it’s always so interesting. This was a big marker for the people traveling the Oregon trail in the mid to late 1800’s. Names are etched in the rock all over. The evening we were there, we decided to walk around and stretch everyone’s legs.
The prompt for this weeks 2 Lil Owls is On a walk, so perfect. Al is checking out a few of the names.
Have you ever experimented with slow shutter speed photography? I have a little bit here and there, but not very much. I know that low light conditions are the best for slow shutter, or if you are shooting in the day time you need a neutral density filter to compensate for the bright light. Otherwise you just have a bright blown out image.
One evening this bull moose was thrashing the bushes. Since it was late evening, and there was no sun to speak of I knew this would be a good time to get this shot.
For this image, I slowed the shutter down and I did the moving. I wanted an image of the aspens in a more abstract way, and slowing it down helped me get that.
