Minnesota Birches


Lake Superior Trip 2016


Here is this week's Photo of the Week. This is from our trip around Lake Superior last summer.  There is something quite captivating about a clump of Birch Trees.  It's really hard to pass up photographing them wherever we find them.

Color and Texture




Here is this week's Photo of the Week. This is from my my Oregon workshop where we stopped along the road to shoot this contrasting branch against the texture of the grassy field. It helped open my eye to looking for photographs even in the simplest of environments.

Indoor Family Portraits

Indoor Portraits

I had the opportunity to shoot my daughter's family portraits last weekend and since the weather wasn't great outside, we decided to go inside and see what we could do.  Now I'll grant you I'm a little biased about the family but I think we got some great shots!  Here's one on a white backdrop. 



I use a 10' rolled paper backdrop which I have mounted on the wall. I simply pull it down and out and place the family on it for a great portrait.  I also have a black rolled paper backdrop too.  Here's an example of how that turned out. 

And finally, the super fun shot of the day.  I've been wanting to try this low key profile family shot and now had the opportunity.  Here's the result.  

So just a bit on how I did this one.  I started by taking low key profile shots of each person.  I used manual mode on my Canon 5D MkIII at 1/200 of a second, ISO 100, and F8.  Those settings alone will create a totally black photo even in a daylight room.  That's the goal, i.e. eliminate ambient light.  Then I added a single off-camera flash shooting through a soft box with a grid added.  Then in Photoshop I stacked and masked each photo on a layer to get this final result.  I am pretty tickled with the result and it really wasn't that hard to put together.   

And don't forget the $50 off special on Family Portraits taken before Thanksgiving.  Go here for more information on that offer.

Reflections


Reflections

Here is this week's Photo of the Week. Last week, out in Oregon, we were traveling along the rode when workshop instructor pulled over and got out to show us this sweet technique of putting your camera right down to ground level to photograph reflections from puddle.  Pretty cool idea!
