Downtown Lafayette In The Snow
Yesterday after I dropped my little one off at school I made my way over the bridge into Lafayette to do something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I made some snokeh photos of Lafayette. The snow was not quite right for this, but at times the flakes would get big enough for a good photo. I love how the snow adds an extra layer of depth to the photos.
More Landscape Images
After my snokeh adventure on campus last weekend I had someone write me to ask why I don’t photograph landscapes anymore. This blog has become focused on sports and wildlife. There is a reason for that. With the permacloud that had set over town nothing really looked great. The sky was grey and everything else was a dull shade. I should try and break out of that mindset, but in the winter it takes something really special for a good photo. I do enjoy making no sports and wildlife photos, but this time of year does not lend itself to them very often. I usually end up covering them all to black and white like in this post.
A New Toy
After my walk last week I decided to buy a flash that is compatible with my Sony cameras. Of course Sony had to make a hot shoe that doesn’t quite match up to my old Canon hot shoes. With this Godox flash I can now use TTL flash which is nice on a day like yesterday. You can just let the flash work, and not worry about it so much.
How To Make Snokeh Photos
If you like the look of these photos I made a blog post last week giving ten tips on how to make better ‘snokeh’ photos. You can find that post here.
