I woke up this morning to a foggy, misty morning. So I grabbed the camera, and my son, Jackson to go capture some foggy images. Jackson proved to capture the images of the day with the Canon G9 (still one of the best cameras I’ve ever owned). Look carefully in the photo above and you’ll see Jackson honing his craft. A selection of his images is below.
While I was setting up ND filter holders and remote shutter releases, Jackson was pursuing this squirrel. The photo below is the Oyster Nursery pots wating to be cultivated next summer.
Next are two images from the sailing pier in our neighborhood. Jackson chose a gritty, photojournalistic, high ISO approach to landscape photography, and it works nicely. I’ll have to try this approach in the future.
This event turned out to be more about watching Jackson enjoy something new, than capturing images myself. I have a few I’ll edit and share over the next few posts, but this one squarely belongs to Jackson. Good job.
We had an unbelievably busy fourth of July holiday weekend. Wednesday night fireworks; Parade, BBQ, and more fireworks on Thursday; Lacrosse tournament (4 games) on Friday; Swim meet on Saturday. We need a weekend from the weekend. Gotta love summer.
For the past few Memorial Days I have made the quick trip over to the Annapolis WWII Memorial for some photography. Today I took along my Son and wow what an experience it was. Jack is a very talented young man. Whether he’s an artist or not remains to be seen, but he is very creative. He took the photo below with little to no input from me on composition. He was pumped up because of the shadows across the facade of the monument. All in all, nice work Jack.
