During the course of this trip, I learned truly how valuable light is. This shot lasted less than 60 seconds before the light was too harsh

Landscape Photography: The Spray & Pray Technique
While on landscape photography workshop, we pulled over and jumped out of the car at the urging of our guide to get a shot that only lasts a few minutes while the sun is rising and only during this time of year.
I was completely confused as to what I was supposed to be shooting and just starting spraying and praying. I was supposed to have gotten a layered shot of the different grasses in horizontal lines. Instead I got this, which isnt too bad as long as you dont zoom in too much to look at it. The 100-400mm lens requires a bit more skill to wield than I had at that time. Well, you learn through your mistakes.

Since I’ve started posting on 1X, I’ve started giving my photos names.
This one is “Among the Birch.” Yeah I know, not very original. Better than “Birch Trees #1” though right?
This is an abstract created by moving the lens up and down during the exposure. No Photoshop was used save for a bit of levels adjustment.

I’ve just started working on my photos from my recent photo expedition/workshop with Marc Adamus in the Death Valley / Eastern Sierras region of California. As I finish processing, I’ll be posting…
I’ll be posting photos as I’ve finished processing them, so be sure to check back often! (I have no idea when I’m going to be finished with these)
