Thanks for the kind and thoughtful responses to my last post (as well as some helpful caterpillar identifications!) I hope you’re all doing well. Hang in there and please be kind to each other.
I headed out early yesterday morning to do some data collection in the Platte River Prairies. Before I could get started, I got distracted by some nice light and clouds and ended up spending an hour wandering around with my camera before jumping into my vegetation surveys. (Nobody worry – I still managed to get all my data collected.) I’m sharing a few of the resulting photos today.
A few of you joined an online photography class I presented last week. If you missed it but want to watch the recording, it is available now at this link. The class is targeted at people who want a better basic understanding of how cameras work (including phone cameras) and how to use that information to make better photos. I also talked about how to identify and use various kinds of light and covered some basic exposure information.
On that topic, a number of you have asked me to provide information on camera lenses and settings for the photos I share. I’m not promising to do that every time, but I did provide that info for today’s photos and I’ll try to do that more often when I have the time (and when I remember).
