It’s Finally Warm Out.. Now What

Well since the warmer weather has finally ascended upon us we might be a little overwhelmed with all the fun things we can finally do.  One of my favorite things to do is check out car shows and of course take along my trusty Nikon D300.  (Soon to be replaced with the Nikon D7100, but that’s another post).

When you photograph car shows one of the challenges is the people at the show.  It can be very challenging to photograph the cars and keep the people out of the photo.  I have, over the years, accomplished this by finding interesting angles, small parts of the cars, and of course reflections.  This makes photographing the cars a little more enjoyable and you are able to get around all those annoying people.

I’m adding several photos to this post to give you a better idea of what I like to photograph at car shows.  Hope you enjoy!

A Leaf is Just a Leaf

Tonight photo is a simple macro shot of a couple of leaves that I took at a recent stop at Phipps Conservatory, in Pittsburgh.  I really enjoy macro photography and the extremely limited depth of field that you encounter, although it can be very frustrating the results are well worth the time and effort.

This is shot with a Nikon D300 and a Sigma 150mm macro lens.
