My best planning is no planning

I headed out to a nearby park to attempt some photography of details of nature. The bulk of the fall color had already passed peak and I wasn’t expecting much in the way of color, so I had black and white on my mind. Maybe some textures of dead leaves or a nice bare tree. Probably the one drawback was…

Shooting Autumn with a Leica M9

In this day of whiz-bang do everything cameras it is almost impossible to not be able to take any shot you want. Super intelligent auto focus settings can track whatever you please. Vari-angle touch screen LCD’s enable shooting from just about any angle. High Dynamic Range settings, in-camera focus stacking, and pixel shifting for increased resolution leave your imagination free…

Autumn details with X-Pro2

  With my veeeerrrry long time away from this blog I have been trying hard (OK, not that hard) to find some worthy shots to post. I know I make excuses all of the time about my lack of input but since my day job has been busier than ever and coupled with a lack of travel outside of my…

Difficult to be different. The color parade continues.

Continuing on with some autumn themed photos. I shot these earlier today in the local park. It was a last minute excursion and I didn’t expect much as the local park is far from being picturesque. My plan was to just focus on details, if I found any, but, as usual, I don’t even remember my plans when I start…

Time to move on

These are probably going to be last of the Autumn themed photos for this year. I know, I know, it’s been lots of fun ūüôā but I have to work with what I’m given. And given that it is heading into the dreaded “ugly time of year”….winter (around here at least), I need to focus on other things besides nature.…

Zeroing in

A continuation of my multi-exposure experimenting. I’m sticking with the autumn theme for now until I can get out to shoot a better variety of subjects. I have ideas at least, if I can only find the scenarios I have in my head. I want to incorporate more defined elements, not so much nature,¬†to give a little bit of a…

I think I’m done with photography

I’m done with photography of the autumn season at least. Trying to get interesting photos of fall is always difficult, in my opinion, (unless, of course, you live in the Rockies or New England) and with the lackluster display this year I’m not going to purposely attempt to document it anymore. Of course I am not a “nature photographer” by…

365-317 Did I say that?

I know I said I was done with any autumn¬†nature photos but these were the only photos I shot today¬†that I kind of liked. My 365 photo is a detail of some plants near a bank I use. They were practically colorless and wilted, ready for winter. Just perfect, in my opinion. The other photo is from the local cemetery.…

Some Autumn Love

Once that initial blast of autumn color is over, it seems people forget about the nature part of fall. The rest of the season means football and the upcoming holidays. So I just wanted to show some love for the second month of autumn. These were all taken in¬†a patch of¬†woods with late afternoon¬†sun backlighting the leaves. The photos are…

365-300 The colors of the season

Another rainy day filled with travel. Although I was on the highway, I managed to grab todays 365 photo during a stop for gas somewhere in West Virginia.¬† I saw the scene right before I exited and was glad to¬†find an easy vantage point. I picked this photo because it’s rare that I do a straight landscape photo. I don’t…
