Perceptive Perspective - Sky

PhotobucketI hope you all like my new blog design! I sure am lovin' it! I gets me in the mood to want to scrapbook, and I've only scrapbooked once or twice.

Everyone ready to show off the sky?

I find the sky difficult at times because of the lighting, of course. You have to get the exposure just right or there is no detail in the clouds and to me, that's the best part. I would rather have a silhouette and get the detail in the sky than have the detail in the ground objects with the sky washed out.

When I shoot the sky, I always take numerous shots, "bracketing" the shot. This means I take some that will be over-exposed, some just right, and some under-exposed. This will insure that you get the desired lighting/detail you are looking for. That's the beauty of digital! You can take a hundred shots and only keep one or two and all it costs is a little time to weed through them. Back when I shot film, I was much more "frugal" with my shots.

I just love the detail of this one...

This next one has more sepia tone than it's showing here, but I love the "old" feeling it has. It makes me want to cuddle up with a good book and a hot cup of coffee!

I'll be back Friday to announce my favorite of the week, so be sure to check if it's you!
Next Week: Luck
