Week 5 Response Chris Molicki

In this article, it talks about how easy outdoor photography can be. The light on nature can make for a truly great picture, but it is constantly changing so you have to be quick. Early in the morning and late in the afternoon are great times when the light looks spectacular. Autumn colors like gold, red, and brown can look good clashing with a blue sky early in the morning. Even a point and shoot can get you a great picture. It is important to not focus on one subject, but rather the entire frame. That makes for a more interesting picture. Beauty can happen in any form of light, but what you see may not be what you get. The lighting can completely change the perspective of the photo. I think this is an interesting article and shows you that no matter what, you can get a good outdoor picture. Just don’t worry about it too much, and it will come out better than expected. You may be surprised with the results, and also the fact that great lighting can occur in any outdoor scenery.

In this article, an 8 year old boy completes a 25 miles, 3 day nature photography adventure with his father. Troy and Rusty Lily released over 600 nature photos of forests and mountains in West Virginia. The photographs are in high quality and are mostly focused on flowers, insects, and waterfalls. The two photographers had an amazing journey, and even encountered a black bear on the way. They took pictures of the waterfalls, and even went down one. It was a rough trip, but they got some fantastic photos out of it. I think this is a great story about two brave and determined photographers and I give them a lot of credit, especially the 8 year old. It shows that if you really put your mind to it, you can get great photos. It was brave of them to go on this journey, and took I lot of perseverance to complete it with great results.
