Old vs New a Tale of Two Farms

20130314-215914.jpg
Driving through farm country today I was enjoying the beautiful sunshine and blue sky. I came upon this old farm house amongst a plethora of wind turbines. Technology has come a long way since the day this house was built. What was once perhaps a dairy farm with livestock such as cows, horses, chicken, pigs, sheep, and goats; is now a wind farm with no live stock and from all appearances, no human inhabitants. If only houses and walls could speak, what tales they would tell.

iPhoneography

Okay, it has been over a month since my last post… where has the time gone? I have missed posting photos, but I’m not sure if I can keep up the pace of another 365 post a photo a day, especially using my Nikon. So, since I always have my iPhone 4S with me, and it takes really great pics, this year will be devoted strictly to phone photography. I do have the WordPress app on my iPhone. So, Happy Valentines Day to everyone, and watch for the iPhone pics in this blog.

Day 212 – 1 Light Portrait


I wanted to experiment with shooting portraits with 1 light. It’s hard to find a willing guinea pig to sit and pose for me. So, another self portrait opportunity. I shot this with my camera tethered with Lightroom 4. I like being able to see the shot right away in a larger format than the lcd screen on the back of the camera. I especially like shooting tethered for self portraits so I am not running back and forth checking the lcd screen. I used a pair of Yongnuo receivers that I bought on Amazon. These are great for triggering your camera remotely and also for off camera flash. They are reasonably priced too. Here is a link to the Nikon version that I use, Yongnuo RF-603 N3 receiver. Make sure you choose the correct model for your camera. The link is from my Amazon Camera shop. If you do make a purchase, I will receive a small commission.
