PHOTO BLOG: Cut Short

Do you ever wonder what you missed out on? That feeling of being so close to the answer, but not quite? Well, that feeling struck me the other night as I was fiddling around with different lenses than I’m used to.

Right at the end of my photography session, I caught on to something. I dragged the night out past my predetermined and sensible end time. I wanted to keep tweaking and tinkering but I knew I’d be out there til sunrise if I didn’t check myself.

This photo happened mostly by accident, which made it all the more stunning.

 

I was idly snapping from the front lawn – a new space for me – jupiter far starsmore for the enjoyment of Jupiter in the sky above than for actual result. I decided I’d experiment with the lenses I rarely use and see what each had to offer. The Tokina telephoto I’d so long considered just a shelf ornament managed to capture the blue planet beautifully.

It is my hope that in the future, maybe more towards the fall, more close-up encounters with planets and other stellar sights will happen. I like casual photography sessions in any situation, be it up in space or down here on the ground: you’re always able to see more.

In that spirit, I’m off to take the camera for a walk and see what I come across.


 

I know these shots aren’t that impressive, they’re mostly teasers for later things to come. I swear I do take real photos too!
