Feeling Good About a Milestone

posted on 20th of march, 2008

Usually when I blog I try to write something that will be of interest to other photographers, designers, or guests.

Today, on the other hand, I just want to share some happy news: I have made it to one of my goals, which is to upload 200 images.

This shot took a good amount of consideration: How to compose the frame to provide something of interest in each plane, how to expose the beautiful ironwood without over-exposing the mountains and sky (PhotoShop helped on that), how to balance depth of field. . . The lucky part of this time-consuming process is that I have a clear memory of that still, warm day in the desert--and having reached my milestone makes that memory even sweeter! So, thanks to all in the Dt world, from reviewers to keyworders to designers to colleagues who helped me reach this goal.

I was struck by this image when I saw it come by in your "latest images" line. Love the flowers in the foreground!

The invisible part of each of these photos is the smells, sounds, and emotions that are part of the matrix of the image memory. It would be nice to be able to store that in the EXIF as well, eh?

Lovely moment.
