White-tailed Deer: Profile

I’ve read professional photographer’s blogs referring to certain light as the magical light.  Last weekend I split my time between hiking for exercise during the not-so-magical-light time of day with the sun high in the sky and everything top-lit, and then when the sun got lower in the sky I began taking pictures.

What I learned from this more disciplined approach to photography – by that I mean waiting for the light – was the photos just seem sharper naturally.  But I don’t know about this more patient approach to natural light.

IMG_2644b While I like the results, I just don’t think I’ll be able to pass-up taking a photo because the light is bad.  Um, you’ve got a little something on your chin, deer.

She’s staring at several other deer about fifty yards below and has lost all fear of my being there.  She isn’t watching me or listening to me.

So now I have to remember to wait for the light.  I definitely like the results of these photos. 

I don’t use any tracking software out of respect for people’s privacy, so I don’t really know who reads this blog, I just have raw numbers.  If you are a professional photographer and are one who blogs, I am grateful for what you have shared.
