Atmosphere....the mood, the feeling, the look we all want when we are out in the field. Those conditions where everything in nature has to line up. The type of conditions we can’t simulate in Photoshop. The look that gives our imagery that ethereal feel. These conditions are rare, but rewarding when given to us. It’s those cold 🥶 mornings when you don’t want to get out of that warm bed. You just want to roll over and snuggle 🥰 a little more with your blanket. Ha! The struggle is real! But yet, something tells you to get up, get dressed, grab your gear and go. Once you’re out in the field, the reality sets in. Damn...it’s cold as f*ck! You question your intentions...”why the hell am I out here?” It’s calm, it’s cold and the landscape is still. As if the landscape hasn’t woken up from it’s nights sleep. Wait, what is that I see coming off the water....is that mist...fog? Yes, it is!!! It’s all of that! It’s that atmosphere that I mentioned earlier! Everything becomes very apparent. That excitement starts to take over. Ahhhhh that rush! I love it! But then you have to bring it down a notch...relax, compose, focus, pay attention to make sure the leaves 🍁 aren’t moving, be still, don’t disrupt the reflections, compose again, what is my subject, does it make sense🤔? That would be the case with each one of these images. Each scene had its own flavor, it’s own vibe, it own special uniqueness. All the emotions that I mentioned, was put into each one of these images. I love what I do.
