The Starting Line The Starting Line
Anyone familar with track will instantly recognize this as a starting line. While capturing your sports and other events, look for shots that represent the event in addition to the actual particpants doing what they do.
 
24mm  f/11.0  1/50s  ISO 100
Spring Forest and a Little Cloud Spring Forest and a Little Cloud
When the sky goes solid blue, I tend to fill most of the frame with other subjects. But I liked the little clouds that happened to be present and added just enough sky to include them.
 
This is the look of a 70mm perspective used in a landscape photo.
 
70mm  f/9.0  1/60s  ISO 160
Steaks of Sunlight Steaks of Sunlight
Clouds partially block a setting sun, resulting in streaks of sunlight across the sky. I didn't have a dramatic foreground to match the sky, but decided to leave an area of pine trees in the frame to balance the sun.
 
24mm  f/8.0  1/320s  ISO 100
The Pasture The Pasture
Unique clouds streak over the woods bordering a rolling pasture. The 24mm focal length is an easy angle of view to use for pleasing landscape images.
 
24mm  f/11.0  1/30s  ISO 125
Tulip and Blurred Background Tulip and Blurred Background
This is an example of how the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 HSM lens can blur the background when focused on a near-minimum-focus-distance subject. A wide open f/2.8 aperture was of course used to get this blur.
 
70mm  f/2.8  1/640s  ISO 160
Foreground-Shadowed Field Foreground-Shadowed Field
When composing an image, deciding what to exclude is just as important as deciding what to include. For this picture, I included a base of shadowed grass. The shadowed grass and non-shadowed grass combined consume about 1/3 of the frame – an amount that often works well for a landscape image. What was included in the balance of this frame was determined by what I felt provided the best overall balance.
 
34mm  f/11.0  1/60s  ISO 160
Early Spring Forest Early Spring Forest
Timing your forest photography with the seasons is important. If you want light green-colored imagery, early spring is when you should be shooting. Especially with backlit leaves, an early spring forest glows under sunlight.
 
24mm  f/9.0  1/60s  ISO 160
