Diwali

The amount of fireworks were tremendous, smoke layered the land like fog before dawn. This turned out quite well, considering I didn’t have a tripod! An advice I would give would be to not be afraid of turning up the ISO. I have a D700 and never really go past ISO 3200. Personally, I can’t … Continue reading Diwali

Transfiguration

Dayummm!! Back from the depths of darkness (school), thank God for strikes! This gives me a chance to pick up the balls and begin the juggle again. This photo feels so refreshing to look at. At the peak of day, the sun warms me while cool winds simultaneously breeze through the plains surrounding this gargantuan … Continue reading Transfiguration

I attempted to recreate the beautiful colors casting over … Continue reading ’90s Dusk

Although I haven’t been able to post for the past couple days, photo’s have definitely been captured throughout. Criticizing Photographs by Terry Barrett is a book … Continue reading Studious

Petals

Another sunny day, it’s unbelievable that it’s the last few days of summer! Although this is a beautiful photo showcasing mother natures diversity in color and flora, it didn’t take much thought to take the photo – just compose and shoot. Being a generic photo, I’m not sure what I could’ve done to improve this … Continue reading Petals
