I never know what to expect…
Last night the sky looked interesting so I grabbed my camera gear, hopped into the Rav and followed my eye.
A year ago I wouldn’t have give a second thought to driving out of town under those conditions but this is a year that I have decided to make a break from the comfortable and experiment.
I am experimenting with long exposure photography and am still a novice at it. It is by trial and error that I learn what works and what doesn’t. Should the skies be completely overcast? Are clear skies better? What about a mix of blue sky and clouds?
These are all things that I am slowly finding out by experimenting.
The photo above was the last one that I had taken on Friday evening. The sun had dropped closer to the horizon than I had reckoned and as a result the photo was under exposed. It was underexposed but it looked interesting in an unexpected way.
A half an hour of fiddling with it in Photoshop and the result is something different than I am used to doing.
Expect successes and failures when you are trying something new and never get discouraged. Like the old saying goes, when one door closes another opens and you never really know what to expect.
