If you like my photography, please considering purchasing a print Photography is how I make my living and there is no greater honor than having someone hang my art on their walls. Prints come in all shapes and sizes along with all paper finishes including canvas. If you decide to purchase any of my work, I would love to see it! Feel free to send me a snapshot of it hanging and I will feature it on my facebook page.
About the photograph-Lenticular clouds how I love thee! Not seen often but when they are they are something which tend to stop people in their tracks. Photographed this Autumn in Rocky Mountain National Park at sunrise, I was able to stand in the middle of the road and get this long exposure with several others. I basically had the park to myself thanks to the recent flooding in Estes Park, nobody was really around. It looked like impending doom was about to happen at any moment. Amazing to be able to see and photograph this scene.
Times always vary depending on the light. I don't do nightscapes or astro so I wouldn't be much help there (though I will be starting that) The best thing u can do is get a set of filters, ND8 is the beginning and what I use. Shoot at good times of the day, within and hour before sunset and an hr after sunset. Naturally a very sturdy tripod is a must. To make the exposure longer you can add in a polarizer which will reduce it a full stop. Set your ISO at the lowest. Generally my exposures range anywhere from 6 seconds to 30 seconds. You can experiment using shutter priority, set it for 20 seconds and see what your fstop is. If you are shooting an APS-C dslr, try to stay around f8-f16 if you can. Anything smaller than f16 tends to cause diffraction. Have at it!
