The clouds were out and the sun was really bright, so why not work with both.
The two photos above I shot at Dennis the Menace park in Monterey, which is a neat place and probably been shot one too many times, but the challenge is finding new ways to make cool photos in overshot places. I found making some nice silhouettes was the key on this old train and kids crossing the bridge.
Later on, I went to the Obon Festival in Seaside at the Buddhist Temple and played more with the clouds and the sun. I shot the Taiko drummers during a performance.
And a girl dressed in garb. I wanted to play with high-speed flash sync and shooting into the sun, which can be difficult, but turned out cool.
And I used slower shutter speeds during a Jujutsu demo.
Rodeo blogs coming this week...
