© Paul Mozell I recently taught a workshop on wildflower photography and demonstrated the use of extension tubes. Fotodiox has a very inexpensive solution in this category that is worth checking out if you are a Canon shooter.
Sometimes I feel as though I’ve been conditioned by the great late god of Kodachrome to seek out and photograph perfect blue skies. But here over Ipswich Bay in Massachusetts one evening, as darkening clouds block the setting sun, I feel liberated for a moment from the urge to photograph cobalt blue and puffy-white cumulus clouds. Seeing these shades of grey, tan and pale yellow over the glistening bay I feel freer than before.
A friend who manages a farmers market referred a photographer to me who is thinking about renting a space and selling some photographs. Although I have never made this sort of commitment myself, I have done a lot of research. Here is what I shared with that photographer—everything I can think of about successful selling in this kind of environment.
This image was inspired by what I refer to as Japanese watercolor, or brush and ink landscapes. I used the multiple exposure feature in my Nikon to take 3 superimposed images, each at a different focal length with the same 18-70mm lens. In the days of film achieving this effect was more difficult and less predictable.
Heat management, and dressing correctly, is the key to getting great photographs of the winter landscape and cold weather sports and activities.
