WOW !!! Mike, that’s the most clever title yet! Well what should it be called? Since the last two posts dealt with clouds that almost get some color and another that goes crazy with saturated reds and oranges, I thought maybe today I would do plain and simple. This is an example of just a pure white cloud formation. I liked it’s structure and cropped it to a pleasing composition. I think the seriously clear, deep blue sky though really sets it apart. This was not shot using a polarizing filter. Imagine if it was? The sky might have gone black. So why not convert it to a black and white photo. Cause that was Ansel’s gig and I am terrible at black and white photography. I could never make a good print or capture a good exposure. One of my classmates was John Huba. He was really good at it and is now a very successful commercial photographer and Canon sponsored shooter in NYC. I can remember helping him with color and he helping me with my black and white. I was lucky to get a C. So anyway I’m here to tell you that I am sticking with color.
On a side note to yesterday’s slam against modern technology, I was mostly kidding. I have used a Nikon D3 and if it weren’t so heavy and expensive I would love to have one. Instead I just purchased a Canon T2i. I was very interested in it’s 1080P video capturing capabilities and the 18 megapixel sensor seemed like enough power to make some nice big prints. I haven’t tested the low light sunrise / sunset shooting capabilities yet but there’s a chance of thunderstorms tonight. Maybe I’ll get lucky and have something new for tomorrow. See ya !
