I took these photographs on the drive to Rock Hill, SC and the USDGC. I know I could have posted this post before all the tournament photographs, but my husband was dying for me to get those action shots on the blog. And so, I post them now! Awhile back, I posted some similar photographs (to and from McDonough, GA), but that was when I was just beginning to learn how to operate my camera manually. Desiring to become comfortable in manual before the disc golf tournament, I took photographs for the last hour and a half of the drive. Photographers have always told me to take more photographs and more photographs and more photographs. And yes, I know I take that advice very seriously, but I didn’t want to fool around with not knowing what to do while photographing the golfers. You aren’t supposed to press the shutter button until after the disc has been released from the hand, so that the click noise won’t distract the golfers. I accidentally did this a couple of times, but it was nothing compared to the noise they would have heard if I hadn’t practiced on the drive up to Rock Hill! 🙂
Again, I love the ephemeral feeling within reflections; these are temporal reflections that will disappear within moments of me shooting them. It brings me joy to see my perspective of our road trip documented with unexpected sightings. So many things I’d miss if I were looking down and playing on my iPhone. These images are fun because the reflections almost appear as if they were painted onto the landscape. I received a comment, the last time I posted reflective, drive-by shots, that made me laugh because the blogger couldn’t believe my images weren’t created with Photoshop. Maybe they look that way because when I first began experimenting with photography, I only had a point and shoot camera, and I most definitely did not have Photoshop. I wanted so badly for my images to look that way though… so I toyed around with ways to make layers (shooting through fabric, glass, etc) that I could photograph my subject through. Reflections caught my eye during that time. Anyways, I wanted these photographs to read as if the viewer were actually was seeing what I was seeing and feeling what I was feeling as we sped by the land along the interstate. I hope you enjoy these photographs… I know I’m still a work in progress, but it makes me extremely happy when I look back and see how I’m evolving. Thanks for readin’ folks. 🙂
