photography from the ground up

Evening Meal

Here is another image from my last trip to Bosque del Apache. It was taken in the evening as the cranes were returning to the ponds after spending the day foraging in the fields. The light was very soft and it gave the image a sepia–like quality that I really like.

This is a landscape version of an image I have already posted in this blog. Once again, I rescued it from my archives when I was going through my images from last year. I think I like the light in this one better than the portrait version.

Equipment: Nikon D200, Nikon 80–400 mm zoom lens, Bogen tripod

Camera Settings: f 11, 1/250th sec., ISO 400.

Processing: Contrast, vibrance, and clarity adjustments in Adobe Lightroom, curves adjustment, and RAW conversion in Photoshop.

  1. Dad, I’m serious, you’ve gotta start sending your stuff to galleries and magazines. You’re incredible. I’m always bragging bout you and sending people links to your websites, and they think you’re amazing, too. Get a portfolio together and start showing it off! That’s an order!
