  1. WOW!!!!! totally amazing geo. I love the negative space and the way you composed this shot (like always). so very inspiring!! I’m going to try some landscape shots today. 🙂

  2. I agree.. I’m a total admirer of the way you compose your shots..

    And how in the world do you get your photos to looks so darn buttery (if that’s even a word, lol) smooth?! Share your secret!! 😉

    Amanda + Cindee,
    To be frank, i’m not sure what the secret to buttery smooth images are. I’ve been trying to follow Mr. Petersons’ advice on getting the correct exposure first. pg 128 of Understanding Exposure [right at your fingertips Amanda! 🙂 ] Mostly, I just guage (read: guess) the amount of light that’s available and first set the iso accordingly. Then find the combination of shutterspeed and aperture that indicates a “correct” exposure for the scene. After firing a test shot, I determine if I would like the image to have a darker or lighter exposure and adjust accordingly. These are things that a pro would likely get on the first shot just by surveying the scene. One day, with a) more experience or b) finally get some formal training, I might have a prayer of a chance to “see” it and get it on the first shot. Good luck!
