I headed down to my local park-area to again practice my photography and scout-out new photo ideas. I brought along my tripod and neutral density filters, thinking I might end up taking slow exposure shots, possibly with water. Once I got down to the dam, my plans changed. Just like any place, the scene changes depending on the weather, lighting and sky conditions. As I looked around, interesting clouds caught my attention. I wanted to use these clouds as one of the main subjects of my photos. I realized that this would be a good day for back-lite, silhouette photos. I set up my tripod and camera and attached my remote timer. I then set up correct exposure in manual mode and set the timer to shoot every few seconds. I typically don’t like taking self portraits but I didn’t have a model and needed someone in the photos.
