Reflections on a year in 365 photographs

Another image for my daughter's project.


Considering the image: I am still looking for just the right image for a project my daughter has asked me to come up with for her.  The image I have in mind is a blue sky with these kinds of light, puffy clouds.  I was walking outside this evening and I noted that these clouds had bright white highlights with slightly darker shadows underneath.  I quickly grabbed the camera and tripod and ran up to my roof to get some clear frames composed.  This one worked out the best.  In fact, it might be just what we’re looking for!

Making the photograph:  This was a straightforward shoot.  I quickly composed on the most interesting portion of the formation and shot five quick frames.  After a couple of different compositions at 0EV, I dialed in +1EV to lighten the clouds because the light was falling fast and starting to color the clouds.  Post processing was simple with a bit of curves and slight sharpening before cropping and saving for the web.
