It’s been a long time since my last post and I decided I couldn’t finish 2013 without one last post.
It’s been a crazy year with starting a new job in May and a relocation from Georgia to northern Virginia. Needless to say there’s been little time for photography and blog posts. Thankfully, in the last two months, the job has settled down and I’m beginning to get out more with the camera and focus (pun intended) on photography. I plan to make photography more a part of my daily life in 2014 and post once a week here on the blog.
Earlier this month, we experienced our first meaningful snow fall in northern Virginia and I couldn’t pass up the chance to get outside with a camera and shoot. Georgia seldom saw snow. We always seemed to get ice there instead. On this day, it was snowing hard and it was amazingly quiet and peaceful while the snow fell. I shot this scene at a local park near my house.
Equipment and Processing
This image was created with the Fuji X-E2 and the Fuji XF 18-55mm lens. Processed in Lightroom and converted to Black and White using Silver Efex Pro. Finally, I added the background blur with the Tilt-Shift filter in Photoshop.
I hope everyone has a great holiday season! Until next year!
