Week #19, Mike’s 2017 Project 52 – “Rock bottom…”

Wednesday evening I hit rock bottom. No, I didn’t watch Bachelor in Paradise. I’ll never go that low. But I did drive out Chena Hot Springs Road for an evening photo junket. With smoke from forest fires drifting in the valley, I was hoping for some sort of dazzling sunset. But Wednesday night saw only a few cloud breaks, with rain threatening most of the late evening. The conditions were just right for fog however, even though my photos did not do it justice. Here is shot of fog along the Chena River about 40 miles out the highway, lying on my belly, at about 10:15 pm.

Canon 5DIII, Canon 16-35mm @ 16mm, 1/5 sec, f/18, iso 100, 3 exp +/- 2 stops, Photomatix, Lightroom.

A lovely shot Mike.
I like the POV.

Fog or not, this is a nice shot. I agree with wolf - like the POV.

Thanks wolfd and WG.

Another shot from Wednesday evening (week #19) at about 8:45pm. Soon after clouds moved in, light rain started falling, and fog off the river began rising. My three exposure hdr shots with sun flair are becoming a little cliché, so it wasn’t my weekly shot. This is taken from almost the same spot as week #8 back in April.





Flat Creek slough at 27 miles Chena Hot Springs Road at about 11:15pm.

Week #20, Mike’s 2017 Project 52 – “Baby M…”

Stepping a little outside my comfort zone this week for my first baby shoot. Baby M is about one month old, a granddaughter of a friend of mine, and as cute as a button. Didn’t use a lot props except for a blanket spread over a pillow or two. Luckily I was able to find enough natural light shining through gramma’s living room window. The shoot was enjoyable and a learning experience for me. What’s not to like about a sleeping baby.

Canon 5DIII, Canon 24-70mm @ 40mm, 1/50 sec, f/2.8, iso 1600, Lightroom.

A superb baby shot Mike.
I'm sure the parents will love this photo.

Nice shot Mike. A keeper for sure! Who knows, you may have opened up a whole new career area for your photography.

Thanks wolfd and WG. Baby M was awake and fussy when I first got there. Don't know what I would have done if Mom had not been able to settle her down. A tired, hungry, cranky baby is not near as photogenic as a sleeping angel.

Week #21, Mike’s 2017 Project 52 – “Flood Creek…”

Drove back to Anchorage last Thursday (7-27-17) and as usual left Fairbanks early morning (2:00am) in hopes of utilizing twilight hours. My pre-trip plan was to shoot fast water with a slow shutter, and also find fireweed with some sort of scenic background. Ended up with some pretty decent examples of both, plus a few other scenic shots. This week's Project 52 photo is a tight crop of runoff on Flood Creek along the Richardson Highway at about 6:15am, using a relatively slow shutter speed.

Canon 5DIII, Canon 16-35mm @ 35mm, .8 sec, f/22, iso 100, no filter, Lightroom, Color Efex Pro 4.
