The challenges of light

Half Done YosemiteHalf Done Yosemite

Light can be a challenge to a photographer. Our eyes and brain can take in the details of both the brightest sunlit objects and those in shadow, at the same time. The typical camera doesn't do that, resulting in those disappointing pictures you get where you think, "That's not how I remember it." Fortunately, we can adjust those pictures (in the old days in the dark room and now on the computer), bringing out the details until the finished image, in this case Half Dome in Yosemite, matches the image that we remember.

We've been in Yosemite this long weekend, where we've had some pretty spotty internet access. Thanks for waiting for us, while we catch up now that we're back home again.
