You read that midday sun is the worst for photography, but I am a fan of the harsher shadows and interesting skies. Light is light after all. Learning to use it to best advantage is an important part of photography.

It’s a great day when a bird ignores you, permitting you ample opportunity to get it in different poses as it perches. My only admonition is to move slowly and quietly. It’s just too easy to spook a bird.

Museums are a gift to photographers:

  1. Sometimes they inadvertently do comedy (note first photograph entitled Sculpture in Box – its been boxed for shipment)
  2. They usually have amazing architecture
  3. You can learn lighting from the Old Masters, e.g. the Dutch Masters

There are three things to note here:

  1. It’s great when animals give you a look
  2. Not all farms appreciate photographers
  3. In any group of animals, some will be more attentive than others

Today, HDR is easy with many software options available. The days of over the top HDR are not over, that option still exists, but it is much easier to do natural HDR photos like this from five separate exposures. Worth looking into as many more cameras have the necessary bracketing features.

It was a bad year for grasshoppers and a lot of other animals. In places where I might have seen hordes of hoppers I saw but a few. It’s a sad thing to know how much trouble our environment is in.

This is a view at the entrance to the nature reserve I frequent. In fact I have taken a lot of shots of birds from just this spot. The black and white has a bit of a sketch element to it, an effect I quite like here. Always nice to photograph a place you love.
