Capturing a Moment   Leave a comment

I have always loved photography. Waiting with anticipation as your images are developed, wondering if your vision (seen only through the view finder) became something beautiful. And when it does, it’s magical. Photography is, for me, capturing a moment in time. It was fear of losing that ‘moment’, that kept me from ‘going digital’ for so long. I am a digital convert and have been for about 6 years now. I am happy to say that the magic of photography is still there. Now the anticipation is during the upload, and the digital ‘development’ is faster, but the magic is still there when you see your images full screen for the first time.

One of the most exciting subjects to shoot: Fireworks. This shot was taken during the fireworks show over the Delaware River during Pennsville’s Septemberfest celebration. Using a Manfrotto tripod and my Nikon D80, I shot with F11 aperture and a manual shutter.  It took a few tries to get the timing  and framing right, then I just watched the show and shot away! The best moment (besides the actual fireworks show) is when I finally get to see the photos on my computer-seeing what was captured by the camera. Wow! The rest of the pics from that shoot are on my flickr photostream (see the link to the left.)

A Bit of Spring   3 comments

 

Tulip Fields

This is one of my favorite photos. I remember taking this photo two years ago on a beautiful day in April.  The depth of field and composition seem to pull me into the picture and lead me back to that lovely Spring day. I am once again strolling among the thousands and thousands of tulips in every color imaginable. I took over 1000 photographs that day, but this one… is The One.
