Photo of the Day
Yesterday I was out driving around with just my 70-200mm lens. I really wanted to just capture some details. I go for the wide lens or the kit lens way too often. I wanted to try and just go out and shoot details. I had a route in mind, but an accident closed down the road that I was going to take. As luck would have it I saw this white horse on my detour. I saw it while coming up on an intersection with a car tailgaiting me. I decided to cross the road to let the car around me, and to go back. Since the horse was now on my passenger side I had to try a new angle here to get the horse, and I think it worked out very well. Even though the horse is white it really still seems to stand out against the grey and white snow and sky. My trip ended quicker than it should have because I really knew that I had a keeper here.
This shot was once again processed with the light sports preset in Lightroom to start. from there I did tweak it a bit because the preset was a bit over the top. It was uploaded with sports photos though so I had the preset on during the upload process. The great thing about Lightroom is that it is non-destructive so I could just undo the things that I did not like about the preset. From there I just tried to get the horse to pop a bit.
This is the 600th post on this blog. This does not mean that it is better or worse than any other, but I just thought that I would mark that. The posts have been coming a bit more frequently lately as I have been mixing my sports in more and more. That really is my passion, but for some reason it does not resonate. Shots like today’s though will always find their way onto the blog.
