May Portrait

June 05, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Portrait opportunities are more limited mainly because many people just don't want to do a formal portrait. So to achieve my 2012 goal of a portrait a month (as well as macro and landscape), I have sought opportunities to do environmental portraits. I recently took a fishing trip with my good friends Rod and Bruce. To get the picture meant carrying my camera gear as well as my fishing gear to the water. I knew I wanted to catch either Rod or Bruce on the water. I also wanted to isolate the person from the background, thus I mounted my Tamron 70-300 on camera which gave me both the reach I wanted as well as the blurred background I desired. I caught Bruce's typical intense concentration when he fishes. ISO 200, 1/125, f5.6.
