It's been awhile since I've updated my blog. One of my photography related New Year's Resolutions for 2011 is to update my blog at least once a week. I want to add more images and the details of capturing the images. I plan on featuring some guest bloggers as well as some works of other photographers that I know and admire.
In addition to regularly updating my blog, I want to continue putting on photography and post processing workshops. I plan on doing a few classes on camera techinques, lighting, and Lightroom and Photoshop workflow. I'll announce those classes and dates on my blog as well as my Facebook page, so please check back.
For 2011, I started out the New Year by waking up and shooting the sunrise with some friends, Sherry and Genevieve. We went to Salt Ponds near Buckroe Beach in Hampton. The morning was actually mild for January. Here are a few shots I got from that morning.
That's fearless Sherry on the right in the water shooting the sunrise.
I was able to compose this shot with the moon in the sky. You can barely tell it's the moon since I shot this with a wide angle lens. I also lit the foreground with one speedlight gelled with a 3/4 CTO.
580EXII with 3/4 CTO gel fired remotely with Radio Poppers to add some fill light to the foreground.
I capture this shot of the sun with my 400mm f/2.8L IS w/ 1.4X TC attached to a 7D.
Same gear to capture this beach bird.
.....and we ended the morning by meeting my wife, son, and Gen's daughter at IHOP. One of my son's New Year's Resolutions is to eat more pancakes.
