Today I went to photograph tulips! 🌷 Unfortunately a lot of people feel the need to walk halfway through the fields for pictures. Completely unnecessary. Just stay on the edge and don't destroy the flowers.
Barn Owl, Tyto alba
Over the past two months I have had incredible encounters with this owl. To my dismay, a lot of those encounters were in poor light and the images captured weren't good enough to be used. On this particular night however, the owl didn't leave its roost until 6pm and as the last light lit the building a gorgeous golden colour the owl flew into the window! I've dreamt of this shot for a while and it feels good to have it! Before he flew and went hunting for the night, this image was one that stood out from the rest!
UNFORTUNATELY they didn’t make it into @locknfestival but I had a blast on my little mini tour with Tony Camm and the Funk Allstars. Starting at @devilsbackbonebrewingcompany they played for the seafood festival and then we headed to @sprintpavilion in Charlottesville to compete for the main stage at Lock’n.
Torii is kind of gate in front or next to the temples expressing the border between the human world and the Kami world (or generally speaking: sacred world). In Kyoto, you can visit Fushimi Inari Shrine (temple) dedicated to the God of the Rice, Inari. Around this temple you can walk through a long hall of toriis.
Você já ouviu falar sobre torii?
Torii é um portão tradicional japonês que é localizado próximo ou em frente a um templo expressando a saída do mundo dos homens para o mundo dos Kami, em outras palavras, o mundo sagrado.
Em Kyoto, você pode visitar o templo Fushimi Inari que é dedicado ao deus do arroz, Inari. Em volta do templo é possível caminhar por um corredor formado pelos toriis.
With the warm spring temperatures and the ski resorts closing, my mind shifts to nights spent under the summer sky.
Creatively speaking, one of my goals for this years milky way season, is to capture more foregrounds in my astro shots.
Honestly, it is easy to get sidetracked by how cool the night sky looks when you get those perfect conditions, that I forget my favorite types of astro photos include a foreground element. It could be a silhouette, a valley, a mountain, or a tree. It just adds that much more to an image.
Do you have any upcoming creative goals? #emformdesign
