Quality still images talk to you personally. They generate emotion. They marvel, they inform. They reveal details that few other mediums can.
They give you time to study, to explore, to take a deep breath, savor the moment.
Nature Photography is an exhilarating challenge. In the preparation for the shoot you are trying to anticipate the camera settings, the light, the elements of composition. Then you are in the moment and the shutter trips.
On to post capture processing and the images come to life. A Honeybee about to visit a flower. A Bufflehead Drake skimming the pond. The Sun ascending the Grand Canyon wall at dawn.
Making these is a pleasure for me. Hope they provide you some as well. Bob is an award winning photographer living in Lake Oswego Oregon. His work has been displayed in the Lake Oswego City Hall and published in the Oregonian newspaper.
