It was election night, and I was on assignment at the Baltimore Museum of Industry http://www.thebmi.org/ While waiting for politicians and there supporters to arrive, the storm clouds over Baltimore began to breakup – just in time for the golden hour evening light to shine in. I left the main building and went to the edge of the Inner Harbor off of Key Highway and waited with my Fuji X-E1, in the 16×9 image mode and captured this beautiful image.
It’s the end of summer in the northeast United States, so it’s the final chance to photograph sunflowers. I know this is the big thing for selfies, but – that’s not my thing. I also try not to get the image everyone else might try and get. This is one from a field near me in Baltimore County, MD. I waited till the last few seconds of light. Shot with my Fuji X-E1.
I’m going to say it – “I’m a photographer and I love high contrast.” This image is from a year ago; it was my first shoot with Jehanne de Champvallon, a French model, photographer and writer https://500px.com/jehannedechampvallon https://www.instagram.com/jehannedechampvallon/?hl=en https://www.amazon.com/Jehanne-de-Champvallon/e/B004NAGG0G We wanted to shoot something haunting. With some luck we got some very interesting clouds on a warm summer Sunday. We met at the top of a parking garage in Annapolis, MD. I used my Nikon D800 with a Nikon 300mm lens from a very low angle. Tip: when shooting with black and white in mind never use the black and white setting on the camera, you lose vital information to the image. The high extra contrast and black and white was added in Adobe Lightroom.
