Right now what is interesting is that I no longer own Photoshop. Two computers died and the discs are lost. Taking photos lately means that I’ve no chance to even crop on my laptop. I like it. I can’t alter color, saturation, no blending images or fancy stuff. Just one shot images, one chance for that shot that makes you smile. It feels honest. I can’t even locate my tripod anywhere.
A while back we had a rare snow here in NC. I had been dreaming of taking pictures of a chapel, at night, on UNC Campus for years. That snowy night sealed the deal for me and I headed out around 11 PM or so with the camera. Water drops on lens? Yep. Long exposures without a tripod….it takes a steady hand. I just wandered around campus and got what looked good. Below is one of the shots of the chapel I have been wanting to capture for quite a while. Shooting while getting snowed on with bitter wind just made it all the better. The rest of the set is HERE.
