Morning Light

Click to enlarge
There is something about morning light that is magical to me. These two portraits have morning light simulated. The light is actually about 4:00 in the afternoon. The location is underneath the porch at our camp. The ISO has been bumped up about three notches on the camera. The settings have been manipulated to intensify the color.

You are starting to inspire me, Xavier. Your postings are getting me interested in two of my former hobbies...photograpy and shooting...again.

She is beautiful and your talent with a camera brings it out. I'm glad you are also teaching her how to use a gun to protect herself...

Both pictures seems to be out of focus. Do you use manual focus setting or auto?

Razor sharp focus wasn't my goal Alex. The AI-s is a manual focusing lens.

I took some drawing & painting courses from the local university about 15 years ago (enough so that I think I have an appreciation for what 'art' is and can consider myself an 'artist').

Your photographs are art in every good sense of the word. There is enough focus to clearly distinguish the subject and enough interplay of light and shadow to make the images truly amazing.

Well done Sir,

It's the golden hour - just around sunrise and just around sunset. The light is mellowed and the colors are warm and rich. Great photos.
