gone fishin’

My husband came along with me on my quest to photograph some of the watery areas around here. He brought his fishing pole; I brought my camera. When it came to shooting the fishing action, I decided to work on using the multiple focus points my camera offers. I’ve only recently started to try switching it up once in a while. Using anything but the center focus dot has seemed unnecessary for the most part, but I want to be able to do it. I got the hang of moving my focus point to the spot I wanted, but if I stopped shooting for a moment I would forget that I was no longer using the center spot – resulting in incorrect focus on a few pics until I realized what I’d done! It was a good learning experience though. Husband put up with me clicking around him while trying to cast his line without hooking me by the lure. :) The sun was setting while we were out there, and I really like how these came out. Hopefully I have done justice to the time of day. I find that I struggle a bit with allowing the light to remain accurate in post processing to what it was at the time of the shot. I tend to want to make everything brighter, but then I end up hating it because it’s not the real photo I took or wanted. So here they are… working to stay true to the shot. Let me know what you think!

Delta flyer out on the bayou! My favorite keychain ever :)

Reflections can be so beautiful with different light playing off the water’s movement…I especially liked this with the golden light of the setting sun coming through on the farther piers.
