The rain has been relentless. One acre of farm lawn that will require raking after cutting, due to it getting so long. At this point in my recovery from surgery, it is taking two days, instead of one to complete. l plan on starting a new videography project this Sunday at the Sturgeon River Gorge area in Houghton County. "Summer River," will be shot in the same format as "Winter River," highlighting video and stills in combination, featuring various rivers of my choice in Gogebic, Iron, Ontonagon, and Houghton Counties. River work during the warm months takes more time, as good muted light is not always available when I can shoot. It is a waste of time to shoot in bright sunlight, unless you want amateur work with burned out highlights that requires excessive Photoshop repair (and still looks like shit). Good photographic work is all about good light, followed by technique, and lastly equipment. Without the ability to read light and choosing to work in the right conditions, the most expensive lens will perform no better than a drugstore disposable. Learn to read light. Slightly overcast days that are simultaneously bright, show minute detail in highlights without blocking. Unlike in the old film days, Live View on your digital camera's LCD panel will let you see what you get, allowing for F-Stop, shutter speed, and other interventions prior to hitting the shutter release. The beauty of digital photography.
