In honor of my next trip down to the sanctuary (in a couple weeks), here are some shots from last month’s trip. It’s great to head down there and photograph when I can, hang out in the desert for a week, escaping the city and the never-ending computer work. I miss the endless shooting at the sanctuary, but man, I forgot how hard the light is to work with down there! It’s that damn sand! I’ve gotten so spoiled living up here in the land of trees and grass and beautifully lit outdoor shots. I’m not really sure how I was able to take photos in that reflective red sand for three and a half years! As you’ll see below, I mostly stuck to the indoors on this last trip, giving me better control of the light. Despite that, my camera still got full of sand again. I don’t miss that one bit.
