Lake Hefner

 

 

 

 

Here are a couple of pictures I took while out at Lake Hefner recently.  The first was with a Nikon 55-200mm zoom lens.  I was pretty zoomed in on this one, maybe even all the way.  It’s great to have a lens with VR as it prevents the shake from a hand held camera while zoomed in.  It really does work:

A shot of the lighthouse at Hefner super close up with an ultra wide angle lens.  I was almost touching the lighthouse when I shot this.  Ultra wide angle lenses let you get really close and you can sometimes pull of some cool views:

Oklahoma “Storms”

Re-worked a previous picture taken awhile back at Lake Hefner.  Messing with “duotone” in Photoshop lately.  Pretty neat tool that gives you unlimited options vs. straight black/white.  You pick any two colors and mesh them together using curves.  In this particular picture I used black and a light muddy green color.  I thought the “duotone” colors set  a pretty eery mood.   This was actually taken on a sunny evening but these dark clouds seemed to be circling overhead, creating the look of a storm.
