My apologies for my inactivity on this blog over the last few days. I was skiing in Flagstaff last weekend and took a pretty good fall giving myself some good whiplash. I’m happy to be feeling a bit better and to be posting again.
This is a pretty different and interesting photo from me. I admit to having what I like to think of as “wide-angel syndrome” – meaning of course that I tend to see the world through the view of a wide angle lens. This is great for many situations and can yield some great images but can also make some rather repetitive images. When it comes to shooting the Grand Canyon, it’s common to think of getting as much in the frame as possible but you might as well try to drink the ocean with a spoon. Some of the best images of the Grand Canyon are taken while isolating a region with a telephoto lens. This was my intention with this shot and I think it came out quite well. The black & white conversion was done completely in Photoshop where I have been working to improve my skills.
I have been working hard to expand both my composition and post processing skills and this particular photo is not at all like my usual work. I would be very glad to hear what you think of this shot to be sure to leave a comment!
