Great mood!

Behind The Lens

Northwest Oregon. It's sometimes hard to get sunrise/sunset pictures at our house because we're surrounded by trees. But there's a skylight built into the side of our house that I took this picture through. It ended up being the perfect angle.
Early(ier) morning. The sunrise was a beautiful gold, and dark clouds passed across the sky, blocking the sun.
When you take pictures of the sun, sometimes it's hard to figure out the right exposure. But with this picture, the clouds did it for me, creating an almost ethereal look.
I used my little Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS. A point-n-shoot style camera that originally stirred my passion for photography.
The beautiful silhouettes, the gold sky, the subdued tone of the sun. It almost seemed as though it was eclipsed, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take a picture like this. It reminded me of an African sunset.
There was no editing of any sort done on this picture. I typically like my pictures to have a more natural look to them, and the lighting/colors turned out perfect.
In my camera bag
A Nikon D3400, a 15-50 mm lens, 50-400 mm zoom lens, macro and telephoto attachment lenses, extra batteries, external flash, extra memory card, and sometimes I still carry around my Canon PowerShot when I don't feel like hiking with my heavy camera bag.
Some of the best pictures are ones taken without any prior knowledge of the setting/subject. So be aware, creative, and prepared. Not every situation is going to be perfect for photography, but our job is to make it look the best we can with what we have. You don't need the most high-tech equipment or the best set-up to take a picture, but the passion to share your photography with others. And play around with your camera. Some of the most boring subjects can be turned into something totally different with a different angle, exposure, focus, etc. So have fun, and keep an eye out for amazing photo opportunities.
