  8. Focus Pulling: Fireworks & Christmas Tree

    20 Dec 2015

    With focus pulling you employ manual focus and long exposures. A good tripod is a necessity! The fireworks were 5s exposures, the Christmas tree 8 seconds.  With fireworks I think the images are best if you start out of focus and slowly rack back to in focus. With my  Christmas tree I…

    19 Sep 2015

    Have been passing these sunflowers frequently the last couple of weeks so got there this morning, just after sunrise, for some photos.  Small personal projects like this are de facto meditation for me. A way to relax and reenergize my passion for photography.  –Thomas
