Our first stop is Brunswick, Ohio in October. Once I landed and felt that fresh of breath air, wow. It was a new city, new state with the potential of meeting so many new people. This trip was meant for personal mixed with a little business photographing a new Karate Studio and senior portraits of my little sister. Oh how I love to get outside my box and photographing new things.
The view above was captured during a day out with my little sister. It was a beautiful day with chill in the air and the smell of nature. I used a Nikon D7500 with an 18-300, F4.5, 1/250s, 50mm, white balance Auto and Flash used. The scenery up north is breathtaking. You know that moment when you have your camera in hand and all of a sudden you just freeze? Your standing there, eyes moving back and forth trying to visually capture every moment without even clicking your camera button. That is such an amazing moment to experience.
Nature and landscape photography has always been part of my career that I use much like a stress reliever. I love to walk around or as I call them do walk-abouts to capture anything that catches my eyes. This is why travel photography has spiked my interest in the last few years. This trip to Ohio had a goal in mind. I was going to capture some irreplaceable photos of my little sister as a senior and get the opportunity to photograph a karate dojo. I had all intentions of going straight to the dojo to gear up for a day of demonstrations. I was looking forward to photographing a new subject matter for a change. Yet, on the way to the dojo, the road we took winding between the most gorgeous colors.
Would you take advantage of the scenery if you were in my shoes? Of course, you would. We drove down this narrow winding road with so much potential surrounding it. I was in heaven with all the reds, the oranges, the yellows popping out in every direction. This was a piece of sweetness I tell you. By the time I actually made it to the dojo, I was enthusiastic and was full of so much energy. Photography is a passion for me and the nature of seeing the world through my lens is well worth the many travels.
