The Shot This Week 1

February 20, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I've had loads of "favorite" photos.  Some have been long-time favorites.  Some I look at and realize that maybe they're not as good as I once thought they were.  This, I guess, is the result of working, making mistakes, learning, practicing, and occasionally upgrading.  Maybe some hand-wringing and cursing thrown in, too.   So while I'm always trying to get ""The Shot",  I really believe that there are lots of "The Shots" out there waiting for me.

 

Funny, I decided on this shot of a gladiolus for this first blog post, rather than the sports shots that I love so much.  My dad grew glads, and now so do I.  They're glorious to photograph.  Maybe a little tricky.  This shot is the result of positioning a very long stem dozens of different ways and taking hundreds of different shots until I got it filling the frame the way I wanted.

 

I like looking at it.  I like to think my dad would too.
