Haha! Alden, I got the iPhone part but I couldn't figure out the draperies. Cool abstract.

Rob, those bridge photos are fantastic!

I've been quiet with posting pics lately, but I just got back from a DC trip and wanted to share some photos.  None were taken with a Nikon, as I only brought my Samsung NX20 for the trip, and I'm so glad I did.  With all the weight in my backpack (snacks, drinks, souvenirs, etc) I would never have wanted to lug around the big DSLR.  The trip was so much easier with a smaller and lighter camera.

Strangely enough, it's mine too. 

 

It's very personal. I like the POV.

Thanks, everyone. That last one was taken in the underground walkway between the East and West Buildings of the National Gallery (I'm sure Tbonz knew that).

Excellent photos this week! Seriously!

 

I had a photo shoot in a garden with this delightful lady on Monday. She has an enormous garden--I'm guessing about 1/3 acre? Maybe more. Intimidatingly huge however big it is.

Actually, no, I didn't...It has been MANY years since I've been there...However, I was trying to place it to areas I knew had the automated walk ways...In general, I try to avoid going anywhere near DC - the closer I get, the worse the traffic!

 

For the last couple of weeks I had been looking at this one, small, dead branch on an otherwise perfectly healthy tree.  I was trying to decide how best to photograph it.  I took a variety, but this one was my favorite.  I took it with my D4 and 24-70 at 70mm, f8, 1/400, ISO 12800.  I reduced the exposure and bumped the contrast a bit and then converted to B&W.

What the heck. One more to add from a photo shoot we had tonight. We always do a formal portrait session for my little girl's birthday, and tonight we finally got out to do it (a few weeks late). Messing around with some backlighting here. Took a reflector and my lights--ended up using the reflector but not the lights. Five-year-olds don't hold still enough to fiddle with lights and stands and such. I did learn that I will be taking my lights to a portrait session we've got scheduled for Tuesday at the same time and in the same location. The reflector just wasn't powerful enough to overpower the sun. Well…if I had used one of the metallics, I suppose it would have been, but I didn't want to blast the poor girl's eyes. Anyhow, I just like the mood in this one.
