Week 8-13 Feb/March 2017 - The catch up blog and Cherry Blossoms!

I am a little bit behind but have been out shooting so the next updates may have a bit of a theme to them because I absolutely love the shots from the last few days out shooting the Cherry Blossoms here in Washington, DC.  This is a catch up blog to cover the last 6 weeks in an attempt to get me back on track! 

I was not sure what to expect when I went out to the Tidal Basin this year as we had a freeze right before and thought it may have killed off a majority of the blossoms for the season.  I was pleasantly surprised when I went out for 3 days last week in the early shadows of the morning to capture the sunrise and I am glad I did! Over those 3 days I was able to capture some incredible shots, meet up with a good friend for some fun and it inspires me to want to be out every morning with a camera in my hand. 

I Hope you enjoy!

Week 10 - Portrait: Environmental

 Environmental portrait is typically of a subject in their natural environment so this is very fitting because this is where Angela loves to be, in the middle of the Cherry Blossoms.  #Sony A7SM2, F/4, 1/500th, ISO 640.

Week 11 - Landscape: Reflection

 As you can tell from the shots above I have a theme and it is the Tidal Basin.  This was a very Foggy morning but thought the Jefferson Memorial reflection along with the Cherry Blossoms was a great shot.  #Sony A7RM2, F/4, 1/250th, ISO 400.

Week 12 - Artistic: Transportation

 This one was a shot I had in my head with the Cherry Blossoms and the City/Car lights in the distance providing the Bokeh.  #Sony A7RM2, F/2.8, 1/60th, ISO 1600

Week 13 - Landscape: Zoomed in

 I really love this shot of the Cherry blossoms with the Jefferson Memorial compressed in the background and the only way to accomplish that was to step back and zoom in.  #Sony A7RM2, F/6.3, 1/100th, ISO 400.
