Cell Phone Walk #2, El Dorado Hills (CA), Bass Lake Hills

While this is the second all cell phone walk post, it was actually the first one I attempted this month.  These are the hills closest to my home, on the dividing line between Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills.   129 more words

Cameron Park (CA), Single Daffodil, Shallow DOF, Monochrome

A vast landscape of flowers sounds like an excellent idea for a photograph.  “Sounds like” being the important phrase here.  When I find myself standing in front of a hillside or shoreline full of flowers, I find myself attempting to get close and capture details of a single flower rather than shoot wide-angle landscapes.   277 more words

Cameron Park (CA), Aeonium, Center Detail, Split Tone

Photograph the early blooming bulbs.  There should be some easy compositions I said to myself.  Not really.  Between moving drip irrigation lines and not finding a good point of view to see the face of the flowers, it was time to find something else to photograph.   240 more words

Not all of these recent late afternoon walks result in perfect photographic opportunities, but it is useful to be outdoors and using the creative parts of my brain at the same time.   126 more words

Cameron Park (CA), Raindrop Splash, Rain, Cast Iron Table, Monochrome

When the “atmospheric river” gives you rain, I stay indoors and try out different shutter speeds to capture the falling rain.  While I was primarily working on how the falling rain looks, one of the resulting images is the one above – a rain splash off the table. 117 more words

Cameron Park (CA), Wood Framed Window, Rain, Obscured Color

With heavy rain throughout the day, going outside for a quick photo hike is out of the question.  Instead, the order of the day is coffee, house chores, more coffee, putting seed out for the birds and peanuts for the squirrels in the backyard, more coffee, and some random photography from inside the house.   119 more words

Cameron Park (CA), Storm Clouds, Sunlight, Pano Crop, Monochrome

Thankfully photo opportunities are available if I look out the big kitchen windows… and have either rapid-fire reflexes to find my camera gear or a little bit of patience if the shot goes away after I find the gear.   255 more words
