PHOTO OF THE DAY: Falling in Love With Nature Photography
After being involved with many on line photo groups. Mostly via Facebook. I have come to realize that many if not all photographers got their start with photography shooting landscape or nature photos. If you think about it, it makes total sense. The light is there, there is never red eye. You can take your time with framing and take as many photo as you want with no complying from the subject. Once a style is found then we tend to shot that subject for a bit of time then we move on to a new natural backdrop to use as a canvas. Some will move onto living subjects like people or pets. Some will stay in the nature photography world their whole careers. One of the good parts of nature photography is that you don’t need lots and lots of gear. I know we need cameras and lenses, but we don’t need to invest in lighting or wardrobe, we never need to pay a model or run advertising to get new clients. The trees will always pose for us.
ABOUT THIS PHOTO: This is a small stream just up the road form my home. It is in a field that houses two horses and two cows in the summer months. This photo was taken from standing just feet from a road. You can see it is early fall here. The leaves are just beginning their change. Soon all of them will be on the ground or floating away in the water. I really love this post and have taken photos in winter here as well. Hope you get out in nature from time to time. If not to take photos of it at least to enjoy it.
