A late evening shot with a long exposure required a small tripod. I framed this old fort through some overhanging leaves of a nearby tree to direct the views eye to the building and sky in the distance.
Carrying a small digital camera with me whenever I can gives me more opportunities to capture interesting photographs. I spotted this full-moon above a restaurants' signage. I positioned myself to line up the moon and chef for a fun juxtaposition. Since there was plenty of light on the scene I kept my ISO setting at 100 for better quality resolution.
I was fascinated by the all the globes of lights hanging in this K.C. restaurant so I used my pocketable digital P&S camera to document the scene. Because the room dark I placed the camera on the tabletop to brace it for a longer exposure. But I maintained a low ISO of 100 for better quality. The automatic exposure ended up being 1/4 second at f4.6.
My wife grabbed her small digital camera to document planting onions in our garden. The unique perspective and diagonal of onion sets and edge of raised bed made an interesting image.
Backing off from this church in New Mexico enabled me to frame the scene through an entrance gate in the foreground. This framing technique used with a simple point-and-shoot camera, adds depth and scale to the photograph.
Using the foreground rock walls to frame my subject I created a symmetrical image in an unusual environment. The light hitting the woman in the opening added nice contrast to the darker surfaces of the cliffs. I used a small portable digital camera for this South Dakota vacation shot.
Before guests arrived for dinner a grabbed a point-and-shoot camera, stood on a chair and took this photograph. The tablecloth flowers and silverware made an interesting composition. The view straight down also gives a different perspective.
A small digital camera on automatic will create a silhouette easily in a situation like this where a darker subject is against a brighter background.
Using the visual technique of dominant foreground/contributing background I used my pocket point-and-shoot digital camera to snap this photo of Willa Cather's home in Red Cloud, Nebraska. The white fence in the foreground adds a nice visual pattern to the image.
