Yesterday, I had the pleasure of returning back to Little ZigZag Falls, near the town of Rhododendron, with Nicole, Karen Hutton, and her husband, Joe Dolister. In addition to spending some time capturing the serene beauty of this area, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Karen for an upcoming episode of her web-series, The Chat with Karen Hutton.
When we were done with the interview, I immediately began hunting for new additions to my long-term study titled, The Path of Least Resistance. More than anything else, focusing on building out this study has done more for me in terms of increasing my focus and paying attention to the oft-overlooked small details of the world in front of us than any other exercise. I can’t recommend enough to all of you to immerse yourself in a study that you feel strongly passionate about and invest in it. These sorts of things can take a long time to really start rocking. In my case, I’m going on my third year and am nowhere near being close to really breaking it open. But, in a way, that’s the best part.
I’m rolling out additions to this study at a slow pace and you can see the ones that I’ve already shared right over here.
I took this photo with my Sony A7r and the freaking amazing Sony A-mount 70-400mm/f4-5.6 telephoto zoom lens. It was lens compression city. Good stuff. Thankfully, the bundled tripod collar provided all the stability I needed with my Really Right Stuff TVC-34L/BH-55 tripod. Stylization was done with a custom preset that I built in Analog Efex Pro 2, part of the Nik Collection by Google.
