So the typical photo rule is that you avoid shooting in the middle of the day. Especially if you want long exposure shots of cool creeks like this. But thanks to my friend, Kyle who told me about this 10 stop filter he got from Amazon, I thought it would be the perfect time to test it out. It’s only 30 bucks and super fun to play with. I just kept it in my shirt pocket and it was so easy to take on and off. If you’re in the market to try out a new filter, I’d try this one.

Over the weekend I met up with  IGDC​, a fantastic group of photographers for Instagram​’s World Wide InstaMeet and an Earth Day celebration combination. We met at Rock Creek Park​ along the Soapstone Valley Tail​ and we were supposed to be picking up trash along the way. However the girl scouts called and asked if we left it. They’re suppose to be doing a pick up the following week and need the trash there. So there was a compromise and we just picked up the litter at the end of the trail 🙂

It’s a super easy hike if anyone is interested and the views are gorgeous! Have fun next week, girl scouts!

Well this has been a fall-tastic week and I enjoyed every single minute of it. That’s why this week’s 3 things are all related to autumn.

  1. Great Falls Park’s amazing sunset earlier this week 
  2. And that glow thou 
  3. A super foggy morning made for a super peaceful morning at the Tidal Basin

Hope you all have time to go out this weekend and enjoy the colorful leaves!

Went out with my intern, Jon a few days ago to shoot Rock Creek Park.  If you follow me on SnapChat (abpanphoto) you would of seen that I fell in the creek 🙁 The lower part of my legs got completely drenched and I have a nice bruise from the occasion but thats what you get when you’re trying to be proactive to get the shot. This was NOT the shot I was trying to get but hey, you can’t win them all.
