Another result of the workshop, I held a month ago. It’s not the first time, I had photographed this group of birches. I really love how they stand out of the heathland especially when there is morning fog.
Two weeks ago I was holding a workshop again. Not a big one. Because of the pandemic regulations, only a very, very small group was with me.
We were reaching our destination before sunrise at about 6 a.m. (oohhh, that’s before breakfast 😳). Amazing how many people were already there or were arriving shortly after us. About 30-40 photographers, mostly equipped with a tripod and a bunch of filters (noooo, no Instagram-filters 😇, glass filters) and about 20 joggers. It wasn’t my first visit here at that early time and in the past, I never met more than two or three people (mostly walkers and not photographers). When I was leaving I met some people walking their dogs or so. So, I was quite surprised how crowded the location was.
But, I won’t complain. As expected, we were gifted by a lot of morning fog, a nice sunrise but unfortunately no clouds.
About 2 hours later, all the beauty was gone. But, our memory cards were filled instead to keep the beauty.
There are different ways to make images more interesting. One of the technics to do this is changing the point of view. You might remember my post on this a couple of weeks ago. Here I used an existing small animal’s trail for bringing your eye-level way down to the eye-level of a mouse or a frog.
Despite the lockdown and other problems resulting from closed shops and working from home the last couple of weeks were quite busy for me. So I was unable to join the Lens-Artists Challenges. But this week I’m back. It’s Leya’s turn this week and she challenges us with “morning“.
Mornings are a great time to go out for taking photos. You get wonderful crisp air and beautifully soft and warm light.
Sometimes it costs you very much …
