…until you know and understand them.” This is the final tip in an article called ’50 Tips from 50 Years Behind the Camera’ by Allen Weitz (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/photography/tips-and-solutions/50-tips-50-years-behind-camera?BI=4906).
My lovely bride found the article and sent it to me (it’s so nice to have a partner who supports your habits). The other 49 tips are also good but this one resonated with me for some reason, especially as we begin a new year. I began my journey in creative photography a few years ago with the stated intent to learn how to take better pictures. Every now and then I catch myself challenging those few rules that I know, mostly as I investigate more creative techniques and photographs. These tips help me be a little grounded, though, because I don’t know all the rules – YET! I’ll just have to continue working on it! Stay tuned to watch me challenge the rules…as I learn them.
The winter months can be challenging for photographers. Here in the Carson Valley, when the weather gets cold we break out the really big lenses and go looking for the Raptors and other predatory animals that migrate into the area during this time. We’ve seen a few Bald and Golden Eagles in the area, but the Hawks and Coyotes are the most evident, at least for me. Here’s a few for your enjoyment!

Great stuff! Three-legged coyote, tee hee.
The kestrel looks so much more colorful against a different background! Great shots. “Enjoying his lunch”, but his lunch was NOT enjoying him.
