San Diego — In addition to getting my syllabi and Blackboard pagers ready for Spring semester, and trying to work out some good times for weekend and longer workshops and seminars, I do try to do what I encourage students to do: play and practice with your photography. On a recent walk in Balboa Park I took a single lens, in this case a 70-200mm to practice seeing with it in ways it is not normally used. Here are two examples.
The first is a shot of some backlit leaves.
The second shot is of the rim-lit tips of some palm fronds.
Both are shot with a canvas print in mind. You can click on either print to see a larger version (I can’t believe I just realized how to do this… some things are just too obvious and it is like a forest and trees issue. Duh!)
On the workshop page I’ve added some more data, so if you are interested make sure I have your email address so i can let you know when things get firmed up.
