Going to be heading up to the south shore of Lake Superior this weekend. Found a little known place called Wisconsin point and will spend a day shooting in the area. Most people would be looking forward to a nice sunny day....not me...I want fog and rain and clouds and.....well, anything that adds a certain mood to my photos. For most of you who have seen my photos you know that I am not a sunny day picture taking kind of guy. I want to be in the elements where life is just a little bit uncomfortable.
One of my pictures, Devil's Sunrise, was taken on a cold January morning. It was not easy climbing the bluffs at 5:30 but well worth it. It has become a very popular photo at art shows probably because it is a rare sight. Those are the opportunities that I am looking for, shots that are just not of the norm.
My camera equipment is weatherproof so there should be no reason why I can't put myself in some less than favorable conditions. Let's hope this weekend...(at least where I am going) is horrible.
I would like to thank all of the people who have visited me at the art shows that I have attended this year. It has been a very special year for me and I am humbled knowing that people like the work that I am so passionate about. It has been my pleasure to meet you and talk "pictures and places" with you.
I will continue to travel the state in hopes of finding photo opportunities that "speak to you".
Wish me a crappy weekend : )
