Last Sunflowers of the Season

2015-2875

Good morning,

On Tuesday evening while I’m setting up for a presentation at the Creative Photography Society in Glen Burnie, I get a phone call from my neighbor. Well you know the first thing that goes through your head is oh my something must be wrong at home. Thankfully it wasn’t one of those calls at all. He wanted to inform me that he found a sunflower field that I should shoot.

So yesterday evening, Kelly Zach and I took a run to see what we could come up with. We had incredible clouds most of the afternoon and I was hoping that they would stick around for sunset. The wind was my enemy on the shoot as it was really pushing those sunflowers around which dictated a higher ISO to stop the movement. It wasn’t quite the sunset I was hoping for but nonetheless it was beautiful to witness.

The Things People Think

2015-2784

Good Saturday morning,

This morning Zach and I ran out locally for a quick sunrise shot. If you think about it there are really only a few types of people that are up this early;  photographers, bikers and runners. Well needless to say, while we were shooting several friends of mine that were out biking (I call them the Metzler crew) rode by and of course we got harassed for standing alongside of the road but it’s all in good jest and as they rode away I heard one of the guys say I bet they shot that barn 1000 times. Well maybe not 1000, but we’re certainly well into the hundreds. (lol)
