Color & Texture….
One of the greatest compliments I’ve ever been paid was when Richard Small, a photographer who I greatly admire, called me the master of “Extraction”. While I’m not sure if master is deserved, I have worked very hard at learning how to extract what I hope are good images out of the overall scene. One of my favorite places to make images is Santa Fe, New Mexico. Santa Fe is a feast of colors, patterns, textures and wonderful art. We finished up after eight hours that started at 3;00 a.m. and after a nap, Jay Miller, his wife Susan, our new friend Greg, and I headed back up to Santa Fe to have a Bobcat Bite burger and walk up Canyon Road. If you ever visit Santa Fe, I highly recommend that you visit this little 3/4 mile long road, that is filled with one great subject after another. I took the D800 and one lens, the 24-120 VR, and a tripod, and spent an hour and half just strolling up and down this famous street. I hope you enjoy the take and I hope this is proof that a good range zoom and one body can help you make a variety of interesting images!!
I hope I’ve inspired you to get out and look for some things that get you excited! To all of you that are joining us in November out in Arizona and Utah, I can’t wait, this trip has gotten me really pumped!
