As photographers most of us have an assortment of lens to to choose from. Depending on what we are photographing we will use a wide angle, a telephoto or maybe a macro. By selecting a specific lens we have control of what we place in our view finders, vital to our vision. At one point I was carrying an assortment of lens that covered from 18mm to 400mm, just to make sure I had it all covered. Over the past couple of years I have decreased that range (and the weight of my camera bag) by narrowing down to 18-200mm and using 4 lens. I discovered having a wide range of focal length did not make me a better photographer.

In the above image I used a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 at 200mm to crop out the surrounding distractions. It helped me to create the image I wanted but that’s not the only thing that helped make this image. In order to eliminate all the background I needed to move in closer. To do that I used my feet. 🙂

The White Fence

The White Fence

The rain stopped. After two days of rain we awoke on Christmas morning to blue skies and sunshine. Temperature was 22 degrees when I crawled out of bed and made a drive east of town. I ended up in an area new to me so found some interesting subjects and more importantly to me, open space. I will post a few over the next few days. This fence was what caught my attention and played around with it for awhile. I hope everyone had a great Christmas Day!
