Last Blog Post

For the last blog post of the semester, I thought that it was fitting to attempt to keep us inspired with places to go to get awesome nature photos. We have learned so much the past few months, and looking back on the pictures I took at the beginning of the semester, I'd say that I learned a few important things. In Montana, there are five places that are best for capturing photos, and getting outdoors.
1. St. Mary Lake in Glacier National Park
2. Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park
3. Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument
4. Lewis and Clark Trail
5. Grinnell Glacier in Glacier National Park.

I hope during Winter break and this next semester of school, I can use what I have learned in this class to take some great pictures at some of these locations.

Week 12

When I graduate college, I want to live near the ocean somewhere. There are always beautiful pictures of the ocean and the coastlines, but I realized on my trip around the Pacific Coast, I didn't know how to capture the beauty that I saw. So, I thought that I would share some tips that one photographer revealed to make our ocean pictures better.
1. Find reflections
2. Notice the color of your photograph and adjust accordingly (the sky can give off amazing colors)
3. Be cautious of the seasons and the tides
4. Be sure to adjust your shutter speed in order to capture the movement of the water.
5. Mix up the format of your photo. Try taking the photo in a vertical position so you can capture both the foreground and the detail in the sky.
In this picture, they made their coastal picture better by finding a subject and capturing that with the coast in the background.

In this picture, they captured this picture noticing the colors that they were capturing, and turning the camera 90 degrees allowing them to have many elements of this picture.

Week 11

In going on the trip to Yellowstone, and seeing everyone else's pictures, I noticed that they all look a little different. I read an article this week about when shooting landscape photography one has to think about their viewpoint. This article said that you have to change your viewpoint in order to get the picture you are looking for. I learned this in Yellowstone. It mentions that sometimes you have to change locations, or sometimes you just need to get down to the level that isn't standing level to get a different picture and view.
Being in Yellowstone, we were all exposed to the same things, but every one of the pictures we took turned out different. This is because our vantage points were different. Some of us only stayed at standing level, while others were crouched, or stood on things to get different angles and let their photos tell different stories. So next time we are all out taking pictures, this is something to think about when we aren't getting the pictures we want, or like the article said, to find something truly unique.
