Maternity Photo in the Sunset

Chris Lane / photography / / 2 Comments

Here is photo #15 in my 52 week project. It is one from my recent maternity photo shoot with my wife for our third child. I wanted a very warm and welcoming look outside and what better way than to shoot into the warmest object around – the sun. This photo is basically straight out of the camera with some very minor edits in Camera RAW.

Shot at ISO 200, 1/250 at f/2.2 at 50mm.

In the Home of the Sky

In the Home of the Sky © Chris Lane Photo

Just a quick post this week featuring a new fine art photograph. I titled this In the Home of the Sky due to the huge multitude of black birds roosting in this large oak tree. With the leaves gone, the top of the tree no longer seems entirely its own entity, but also a part of the sky. The birds find this their home, such a handy place to be able to go in and out of quickly. When I went up to them they were quite comfortable and not willing to leave, not that they should. They were in this tree in this field ready to scrounge the ground for any scraps of the years harvest left to remain.
This was taken late in the day into the sun to give the birds and the tree the most contrast and impact possible. The sky was somewhat dramatic, adding to the feel of the dead tree.

I hope you enjoyed this photograph. It is available for purchase as a fine art print. Just use the print order form here. I’d also love to hear any comments from you.
