Impressions

"Puddle"- An aspen leaf floats on a puddle in the parking area next to Chapel Pond along Route 73. Canon 7D, Sigma 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DG APO lens, ISO 400, f/16, 0.4 seconds.


As I mentioned in my previous post, I wanted to share with you some images I made during my last trip to the Adirondacks, and over the last few years, that take a more impressionistic view of the Fall scenery. All of these images were created either using camera motion with a slow shutter speed or by photographing reflections in moving water (with and without slow shutter speed).

As I was updating my Creative Cloud apps, I noticed this new thing called Adobe Spark. I thought I'd give it a try. This video was created using Spark and it was very easy to create a pretty professional looking/sounding video. While there may be times that I want a little more control, this certainly saved me lots of time versus using Premiere Pro and scouring the interwebs for Creative Commons music that fit the mood. They had a great music selection for inclusion with the video. I'll definitely be playing with Spark some more to see what it can do.

"Monet's Fall"- Birch, Red Maple, and Aspen blur together to create an impressionistic canvas capturing the color and textures of Fall. Canon 7D, Sigma 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DG APO lens, ISO 200, f/16, 2 seconds.
