The Iceland 2017 Winter Workshop is over. My apologies for not posting more images while it was taking place. We were shooting non-stop from dawn to sunset, doing dinner and sometimes out looking for Northern Lights. Wasn’t much time at the end of the day. So, here’s the final selects for now. The workshop was fantastic. I am going to do more small group workshops in the future. It allowed us to do so much more. The group was the best and they all had talent and great eyes for composition. The summer workshop is almost sold out so if you want to see Iceland sign up today. I will not be doing any Iceland tours in 2018. Thank you, Daniel Bergmann my friend and the best guide in Iceland.
Every now and then I like to play. Actually I like to play a lot. I was at the state fair last August and went to the carriage event in the arena area. I decided I’d take all images at long exposure. This meant using the motor drive and just trying to get focus correct and then to move the camera with the subject. I shot hundreds of images and a good deal of them didn’t turn out. But, every now and then you get a winner. Here is one I liked.
Playing is so much in photography. Lots of times I’ll go someplace and try something different. I went to this rodeo a while back and I could have shot it like a Sports Illustrated event, sharp, stop action, or I could do something totally different. So, i decided to shoot the whole thing at slow shutter speeds. I wanted to be able to still define the subject (horses and people) but show the movement in the shot at the same time. I shot a lot of images and some worked and some didn’t. here is one that worked.
