Yellow Stripe

Yellow Stripe

Before I shot the milky way shot that I posted yesterday, I was out on the other side of West Point (North of town) at the old Gulf Ordinance Plant, scouring an old abandoned building out there (photos to come). As I was leaving the area, I stopped to capture this awesome sunset from a different perspective. Since traffic was clear at the moment, I placed my camera on the road and took this photo using my wireless remote shutter, which comes in handy in low light when you don't want any camera shake. It especially came in handy since the cameras was not completely steady on an uneven road, so I needed to take the shot (3 shots actually) without shaking or knocking over the camera. I closed the aperture all the way down to f/22 so that the water tower and horizon would only get very minimal blurring. I really like how it turned out and I think it's fun to experiment with different angles and perspectives to make a more interesting shot and it's often something that many people don't think of when they are out shooting. Try every possible angle and you might just come up with a unique shot, even if you are in a place where lots of people go to take photos. Play, play, play and play some more. That's part of the fun of photography and the freedom you get with digital.
