Here is another image from Phipps Conservatory earlier this Summer. Phipps has so many different angles to shoot from. I can always find a new point of view to make things more interesting while shooting. It is hard to get a photo without people in it though. It seems they are always walking through/around the building on the property. Sometimes, I just have to wait a while for no people to get the perfect shot!
It’s amazing how little time you have to photograph the sunset. I always find it humorous while I am out there taking photos because I am running around like a maniac while trying to get every possible angle and scene before the sun dips below the horizon. Now, more often not, the sunset is even better after the sun has fallen, giving the clouds an array of color. It usually gives you another 15-20 minutes of shooting before it goes to dark.
Happy Independence Day for those who live in America! Quick post this week… I am a few days early on this photo because we are moving into our new house this weekend and I will not have internet access until Monday (with the exception of my iPhone).
Here is an image from our trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica last week. I was glad there was some rocks on the beach to experiment with. I really enjoy seascape photography but don’t really get the opportunity to do it living in Pittsburgh! Enjoy your weekend!
I just got back from a great vacation in Montego Bay, Jamaica with family and friends. My wife and I just bought a house and it was really nice to get away for a week and just kick back. I snapped this sunset towards the end of our stay. While I was on the rocks with my camera and tripod, a woman came up to me and said, “not much of a sunset tonight, huh?” I looked at her funny and replied back with, “this is a perfect sunset!” I wasn’t sure what sky she was looking at but it looks great to me! After talking with her for a few minutes, I found out that she is a wedding photographer and she ended up agreeing with me that it was a really nice sunset. I just think it’s funny how people see things differently!
Phipps Conservatory is definitely my favorite shooting locations in Pittsburgh. It is such a fun building to take pictures of. At sunset, the different colors bounce off of the glass to make it more dramatic. I stopped by here after my wife and I had dinner last week. I didn’t take too many images, but just enough to keep me happy.
