Sand and Stone

Overcast skies create a wonderful quality of light for photographing details. This image was shot between rainstorms on a recent trip to the Oregon Coast. The shadows are full of detail and the colors are rendered rich and vibrant.

Many times getting out in conditions that would seem less than ideal end up being the best days for photographing. I have learned that the best time to create images is the present. It matters not what the weather is, if I have an open mind and feel my environment, I will be successful. The key is feeling. Feeling the light. Feeling the moment. Feeling your surroundings. Internalizing those feeling and then capturing them visually is the process that makes successful images. Without the feeling, I am only able to find snapshots.

    • Thanks, Lacey! It is all about the light. It is not so much what I do, but recognizing when the conditions are optimum for color. The overcast light combined with proper exposure will really saturate the color. On the 19th make sure to bring Joe to the EQ activity. We’re talking photo.
