(2018-11-27) Dear Reader
I have been out and about these past 3 weeks or so trying to get one last photo to complete a set of 10 photos in the “Thin Line” series. Winter arrived and has now temporarily departed. The winter photos have a very different feel.
There was a time when my skiing was improving. My consolation when I fell was, if I am not falling, I’m not learning. Photographically I have been falling. One lesson is to use bracketing more often. Currently my new default setting is to take 5 photos bracketed on either side of the adjusted exposure in .7 increments. Adjusted exposure is the exposure I set after considering colour and brightness.
The first photo is the outcome of my third drive to a specific location. After finally getting something that worked, I realized that the structure was different than the other “Thin Line” members. I remain one photo short of the ten.
The fourth photo illustrates the idea that photography is also about a way of seeing. The road behind is the consistently busy TCH (Trans-Canada Highway). The answer to the unspoken question is yes, that is how I remember the light.
So where does that leave you the viewer. Well, it is like this. Here is a disjointed set of images captured while on a quest for a number 10.
