As things begin to come together for my transition from Navy life in Italy to Civilian life in the big bad world, I am getting more and more excited. Only a month before I fly out of Italy for good, and by September first I will be a Civilian again! Something about taking a leap of faith in to the unknown is extremely attractive to me, as it has always been – after a little down time in California I will begin my year-long backpacking trip through Asia. I plan on blogging as much as I can, photographing daily, and sharing all of my unique and exciting adventures with all of you. I truly hope you continue to visit this blog and join me on this adventure of a lifetime!
Today I have a pair of images I took a few evenings back during the “calm” before the storm. Rain was projected for the entire weekend, but didn’t decide to show up until Sunday night. A couple of friends and I were having drinks outside, relaxing and talking, when we noticed how awesome the clouds looked. I ran inside, quickly set up my rig, and began to shoot. I decided to go with long exposures, upwards of three minutes, to capture the rapid cloud movement in the photos. These two shots were taken about 15 minutes apart, the first one taken earlier then the second one. No filters were needed – just the D800, 14-24mm f/1.8, Slik Pro Tripod, and remote release. After that, some touch-ups in Lightroom 4 and the photos were done! I’d love to hear your questions and comments below!Pin It
