As a photographer, its fun to look at your older work and reminisce. I look back on my photos thinking what I could have done differently; Maybe the light was harsh or perhaps the shutter speed was too slow. This Saturday I opened an old storage file to find several unseen photographs.
It's always a good idea to save your work on multiple sources. I used to store files on CD's, but now it seems they are becoming as obsolete as film. My work is stored in three locations: an online cloud storage system, my current iMac's hard drive and an external hard drive. The thing about saving photos in digital format is you have to open them and view them once you shoot.
Today I remastered/edited two old photos taken almost 5 years ago to the day. Our newest images are of a young Grey seal resting on the beach in Island Beach State Park. These two photos are new to our online portfolio and are available to purchase in a Special Edition Canvas Gallery Wrap only. If you've seen our seal photos before you know how amazingly photogenic it was!
Bashful Seal - a young Grey seal with its left flipper over its face. She looks like she's shy but that wasn't the case at all. This seal was such a ham in front of the camera!
Portrait of a Seal - taken in tight with no crop. Our other seal photos are fun and silly. After about an hour of photographing the seal it gave me a serious pose.
We hope you enjoy seeing these new/old photos on a dreary Saturday afternoon. Hopefully they will brighten your day.
Don't forget: our next show is next Saturday, April 30th, at the New Jersey Folk Fest in New Brunswick. We'll be in attendance from 10am until 6pm. For more information please visit them online at: www.njfolkfest.org
