Moon and A Windmill



So I was on my way home from the grocery store last night and I saw the moon was about to rise...a full moon.  And the clouds on the horizon led me to believe I could get a cool shot...it was all I could do to stay the speed limit to get to the location I wanted to shoot with the windmill...problem is I didn't have a tripod and it was windy.

I knew it was going to be tight timing to get setup, or I would have gone home first to get the tripod..but alas, I thought I'd take a chance...

I had to shoot from the ground up to get the angle I wanted...but without the tripod I had to use whatever I could find to prop my self.  The windmill is not as sharp as I would have liked.....in post I adjusted the curves and played around with sharpening and clarity.

Until next time:  Love Yourself, Love Your Neighbor, and Stay Unique!

Capturing the Coolness of Baseball Action.

Good morning everyone.  With baseball season in full swing, I thought today I would share my thoughts and techniques on photographing baseball action.

Here are some rules I follow:

1.  Shoot "ass to the grass".  Can't remember where I read this, but it's true.  To get great baseball shots, you need to be low.  This gives batters a more majestic look and allows you to get great field shots.
