Couldn't resist stopping to get a picture here.
Just a collection of images that have worked well with the OptikVerve copper filter. It's one of my favorite palettes, but most images simply don't work with it. From the look of these four, it would seem that the light of sunset or sunrise works best.
Steve asked me to join him Saturday morning for a sunrise shoot at Red Rock Canyon.
I spent the thirty minutes prior to sunrise maneuvering around the desert looking for "the shot" and I finally settled on this spot. Its not exactly what I had hoped for, but it turned out okay, I think.
I got a new lens today, a 50mm f/1.8. I wanted to take a step back and approach photography the way I used to when I was a teenager. A zoom lens is nice, but a prime lens forces you to get up and move around. I am hoping the prime will improve my creative vision. (My gawd, I can't believe I just typed this.)
Anyway... fairly low light, so the DoF is shallower than I'd like. At the time, it didn't occur to me to increase the ISO.
