Today, show us an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice.
There’s lots of sinkholes around the property here, the one I wanted I couldn’t get to today so I chose a smaller one. I may post the other one later this week.
Capture a fleeting moment and experiment with blur and movement.
That moment when you know it’s gone from being silly to completely over the top.
Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white.
I think the simplicity of this one translates well to black and white – Mammoth Cave Baptist Church. Established 1827 Flint Ridge Road, Mammoth Cave National Park. Original church blew away in storm in the 1920’s and this one is the rebuilt one about 50-75 yards from the original church location.
Then there’s The Mentz House in Park City, KY with all it’s angles… Built in 1885 by C H Smith of Bowling Green, KY, it was hotel and office for the L & N and Mammoth Cave Railroad. It burned in 1897 and was rebuilt on the original foundation in 1902 and was home to the Baulch Junior School, a hotel, a nursing home, an apartment building and a private residence. It is now being restored and is said to be haunted.
We’ve practiced shooting outside, getting different kinds of shots, and experimenting with light. This weekend, let’s build on these skills.
This is a series of shots from a few days ago. Trying to get the feel of what I as looking for when I posted for “Solitude”. Took several from different angles of the cog that is mounted at the entrance to The Factory at Franklin in Franklin, TN.
Colors can stir emotions within us, tell stories, and transform our images. Today, use one color to add life or drama to your shot.
This shot is of the ticket booth at the old drive in on Hwy 50 in Lewisburg, TN. It’s closed for winter and looks so desolate and abandoned. Took a shot of the sign at the entrance also but the color on this one really stands out.
Show us something uncertain, and manipulate light around you to enhance the mood of your image.
Used some crazy setting in my photo editing after downloading pix taken with my Fire Phone. The 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Spring Hill is being re-acted this month at the battlefield at Rippavilla just outside of Spring Hill, TN. These flags line the driveway to Rippavilla. Battlefield definitely looks different with the GM Plant across the highway now.
Capture a moment, big or small, and pay attention to the lines and curves produced by nature.
Since my pictures of the deer chose not to cooperate with me I am using a couple that were taken early in the spring. An announcement from Mother Nature that warmer weather was on it’s way then.
One of my favorite winter photos is from the backyard where I used to live. It was used by the company I used to work for as a Christmas greeting on our emails one year.
