Have 2 classes on Photographing the Holiday Lights Workshop at the CBG coming up fast. Decided to get up there for some practice. Sometimes the teacher needs to teach himself. Tripod is mandatory even if you’ve switched to Decafe. Worked well tonight. If you do this, please remember to put a small flashlight in your camera bag. I didn’t. It’s manual focus just like the sunrise shot. Also a medium ISO setting, aperture setting around f 5.6 and about 1/8 second for openers. Crank up the ISO if you feel it’s that necessary. Shot will still come out but remember: you’re in full manual camera mode in addition to focusing without help.
A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.
The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.
Each photograph tells a story.
