A different view of the the Broadway Fountain here in Madison Indiana. Most people shoot the whole fountain which leads to a lot of cars and people being in the frame. So this time I decided to just concentrate on a intimate view with just one of the statues with light and water droplets as a backdrop.
I think it came out pretty cool !!
I captured this image of the sun setting on main street in downtown Madison Indiana last year. I used a long exposure to get the blurred effect of the car lights to add a little interest to the image.
I found a high vantage point to get above the subject and also to create a line to carry my eyes thru the image.
Thanks for taking a look hope you enjoyed the image !!
I photographed these fireworks from the Ohio River bridge over the fourth of July weekend. It was a great view for them and and even more unique spot to capture their beauty !!
Believe it or not I actually forgot to post a couple shots of something I wanted to share from this past winter, with everything else I shot it just slipped thru, I was able to capture a few images of some frozen ice abstracts from a creek near my home here in Madison Indiana.
First thing about shooting on a frozen creek is don’t fall thru. Sounds simple but it always seems to happen to me and on this day it did again, thank goodness the water was shallow, just make sure your careful and the water below is shallow and if you have any concerns find some place else. You will definitely need a tripod to give the camera a stable platform to shoot from and I use me Sigma 150 mm macro for all my closeup photography.
Basically I then start out looking for interesting patterns in the ice to come up with interesting compositions, the hardest part from me was finding good comps on ice that I could then set up and photograph on without falling thru lol !!
Small apertures and long exposures usually are in order and when I get to post processing I converted most the images to black and white for a more dramatic feel. And after all that here are a couple images from this shoot on the ice that cold winter’s day.
Just remember to be careful on the ice and hopefully there won’t be any more ice to photograph this year and you have to try it out next winter !!
Wonderful today snow this weekend…. It is becoming the story of my life right now, I feel like I am reliving the scene out of the movie BraveHeart with Mel Gibson, where he tells his soldiers hold hold hold, at least they are getting their frustrations let out in combat lol !!
So I guess I can let out some of my frustrations with another winter image I captured this past winter here in Madison Indiana. I guess it is better than not posting anything at all and I know it will get better but in the meantime more winter !!
I know this type of image doesn’t appeal to everyone because of the blurred nature of the composition, but I really like experimenting with my photography and I love the ghosting effect that using this method gives you. Just simply shooting at f/11 on a cloudy day then just quickly panning the camera up and down just a couple inches at a slow shutter speed can result in images like this. Like I said not everyone’s cup of tea but I kind like it and it’s fun getting the different results.
Hope you enjoy viewing my work and thanks for stopping by, eventually I may even be able to post some wildflowers from here in Southern Indiana, if we ever get spring !!
