Travel Photography – Lighting

Most of us when we travel and are touring do not have the luxury of bringing a tripod or time to change our camera settings for the tricky lighting conditions. I found when in indoors the best way to capture lit up scenes is with my cell phone. It seems to work far better than my mirrorless camera. These photographs were taken in Crystal Onyx Cave in Cave City, KY. Some of the most beautiful formations I have ever seen.

Photography – Capturing the Sun

“Nothing is hidden under the sun.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Samsung S9 – f/2.4; ISO-50; 1/276 sec.

A couple of weeks ago my camera club went on an outing to the Chicago Garfield Park Conservatory. The sun was shining full force through the glass ceiling above casting rays of sun on portions of botanicals throughout. I decided to take photographs with both my camera and phone. To my surprise, my phone captured the sun lit plants much better than my camera!
