How to Create Enjoyable Images with Ugly Sky Conditions…
Had the pleasure to shoot briefly with a friend that rented a Nikon D800. I had been drooling over his D700 when we met around 3-4 years ago–seemed only fair it was his time to check out a new camera that I am so fond of!
Although the Sacramento Area has 2 rivers and a couple of lakes near by, it is SO different to be along the shores of the San Francisco Bay with no waves.
Most of the boats were alone with their sales wrapped up and covered. The reflection of the bigger boat caught my eye when I was looking and walking around. Our access was limited, as there was a locked gate only available to Marina members with a key.
The glare from the sun made this image more difficult, so I kept shooting in continuous high mode as the bird moved across the sky.
This was actually the first time I even took my Lensbaby Muse off my camera–since I got it about 2 weeks ago. I kept seeing locations that would be better shot with my Lensbaby. I will admit, the newer tag of, “See in a New Way” fits
Once again, the bird caught within the same frame as the sailboat–I couldn’t resist! I also liked this composition better with the shore rocks and the breaker behind–may “move” the bird & update this after I visit Photoshop CS6.
The yellow boat draws your attention right in. Lack of wind allowed the reflections to show and be a bit more dramatic trip to the marina.
Another view of sailing–a bit closer to the San Francisco Bay Bridge.
Think this is my favorite view from the day. Framed Sailboat via the marina parking lot.
Thanks again to my friend, Ben for driving me around, so I was able to shoot and not worry about a conflict with my meds.
