In lieu of actually photographing weather, today dry air is moving in quickly to New Mexico leading to clear skies and a slight breeze.
The weather is perfect, how boring.
Today I decided to challenge myself creatively. I’m used to photographing big things like storms and mountains, so getting up on a mountain at 10,000′ and focusing on the small details is about as polar opposite of a subject as I could come up with. To add a bit more flavor, I decided to take a 20mm prime lens only (that’s a 40mm equivalent for 35mm equivalent nerds).
Doing photo walkabouts like this enables you to try new things and also possibly to discover a new type of photography you love. About a mile in, I decided to be stupid and sprain my ankle so if you think this post makes no sense blame the pain and medicine.
Anyways, here’s some photos from my experiment. Let me know how I did in the comments!
I am a photographer and filmmaker based in New Mexico. I love adventure and travel and exploring my state. Previously I worked in online media in OKC, winning an Emmy for my work on breaking news.
