shooting the shooter

I can’t explain it. I don’t generally shoot people, but I seem to like to catch the photographers, a tripod is a bonus.shooters-3762I think this guy started it. There seemed to be a story here. I might have titled it Indecisionshooters-1140Another story? Never quite figured out why the tripod was out there in front of her.shooters-7712Perhaps some of you recognize Nina taking a shot?shooters-0250And then the photo workshops that seem to be on the increase provide plenty of opportunities…shooters-2This one was one of my favorites, but I blew out the sky in my hurry… I could just say the blown sky adds to the drama πŸ˜€shooters-1090Last of all there’s a self-portrait and this is where I exit…..

I’d like to mention that Otto von MΓΌnchow has generously added my blog (Movin’ On) to his final round of voting for the Best PhotoBlogs on WordPress.

  1. I like your selfie shadowy photo! Oh, and btw on your eagle has landed photo, never feel the need to explain heavily cropping any nest photo – if they aren’t heavily cropped,I worry that the photographer has gotten dangerously close and imperiled the nestlings! You know how I am about people getting too too close to wildlife.


    • I feel very protective of these birds (any birds) as well. I generally lower the camera when cars go by so they don’t look for the nest… but it’s almost impossible to see from where I sit… across a meadow and a wide river… hard to spot the birds except for the white dot of the adult’s heads without binoculars or a long lens. I was incredibly lucky to catch the eagle flying up the river with a huge branch to add to the nest. Otherwise I never would have known it was there. I thought of posting a shot to show just how far away I sat, but decided against it for fear it might be too easy to spot by others. Their tree is quite distinctive looking.


    • “Blown” sky refers to the fact that the camera can only handle a limited range of exposure… so, dark foreground and bright sun resulted in pure white in the sky where the sun was…. thus it was “blown”… I could have adjusted to keep the sky in check, but the tripod guy would have been in complete silhouette….. it’s a balancing act and takes far more patience than I have (or special filters and a tripod…. etc etc)
