Photographing the Same Location Part 2

Today’s Post by Mark Toal

I recently wrote a blog post about photographing the same location over time. This morning, I again returned to the bluff above the Willamette River and the Blue Heron paper mill and took the photo.

Blue Heron 2

I found a place along the trail that’s easy to remember so every image that I make will be taken from the exact same spot. My goal for this self-assiggnment is to try and interpret the changes in as many different ways and seasons as possible.

This image was made with a Panasonic Lumix G7 and Lumix 7-14mm lens set at 7mm. I used the built in Panoramic mode on the G7and slowly moved the camera from left to right. The camera automatically stitches the images together for me. I then adjusted the final JPEG file in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Tip: The self-assignment is a great way to get out of any photographic rut that you find yourself in. Pick a subject and give it a try and have fun with with your photography,
