Moon, Palm Tree Silhouettes, and Orange Contrail Clouds at Sunset
Another case of “the best camera is the one with you”. I’d never seen contrails lined up like this before with the added bonus of happening just after the sun set. View from the Old Northeast section of St. Petersburg, Florida.
Hawaii Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan: Day 3
Three images taken four years ago while I attended a photography workshop on the Big Island of Hawaii led by Thom Hogan . The first image is two women running to the ocean at the beach at Waipi’o Valley. The second image is of a palm tree overlooking Waipi’o valley, located along the Hamakua Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. The third image is a sunset over the ocean (location unknown).
One thing that Thom helped me with during the workshop was how to compose an image with at wide-angle lens. You can see an example at Waipi’o Valley beach with subjects near, mid, and far distance at the following link: 20-November-2007. The other lesson was to include a human subject to give perspective and scale to the overall image. The image at the link above includes Thom as the mid distance subject.
Hawaii Photography Workshop with Thom Hogan: Day 3. Beach at Waipi’o Valley.
Waipi’o Valley is located along the Hamakua Coast on the northeastern coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. We hiked down to the beach, and Thom spent time with each of us working on technique and composition. One lesson was that images with wide-angle lenses should have close, middle, and distant subject. Also, having a human figure in the image helps the viewer get an idea of scale.
