Pick one thing, and JUST DO IT! Have you wanted to learn a new skill in editing? Perhaps you have just wanted to try to shoot something that you haven’t done before. New piece of gear and learn how to use it? What ever it is think about one thing that you said, “I need to do that”! Write it down and put it where you’ll see it and let it sink into your mind till you take action and go do it.
For me I have wanted to take the time to learn (really learn) how to focus stack. Today was my real first step into that skill. I went out to McInnis Canyon today and found some of my favorite subject matter and went to it.
Copy that link to see my test photos. I don’t want to take up club space. The Twisted Tree stump really turned out well. Getting every bit of those Juniper tree’s in focus is always an impossible task….Until now! Also another favorite subject is the Rock Face’s. I love the texture, but it is hard to get the camera sensor in the same plane of focus as the rock. Look forward to re-shooting some of my favorite places!
Of course Focus stacking isn’t for everything, nor would you always want everything in focus, but when it is absolutely necessary and your subject isn’t moving…lol it’s pretty cool.
So what ever it is you want to do, get out there this month and JUST DO IT! See ya at the meeting.
