Member Monday Featuring Carol Rosenthal
Our Member of the Week is Carol Rosenthal, and her photos capture this time of year PERFECTLY! This foggy scene caught our attention with its hazy, peaceful look.
We just had to learn more about where this shot was taken, keep reading to do the same!
About the Photo
This photo is titled “Winter Hours” after a Mary Oliver poem. I captured this image in Yellowstone National Park, in February 2019 right after sunrise. It was -24 degrees. Most people would not think to go to Yellowstone in the winter but I can tell you it is magical.
The trees glitter, the snow is deep and reflects the sun like a bed of diamonds, and then you have the mixing of elements; the frozen land, the icy rivers, and the early morning mist competing with the steam vents in the background. If you are really lucky, you may spot a coyote or fox, searching for a morning meal.
Gear and Software
I used my Canon 80D with a Tamron 18-400mm lens. I shot this at 30mm, iso 100, F8 at 1/160sec and overexposed just a bit. I use Lightroom and Photoshop regularly along with Nik and Topaz, however, this image only required some minor developing in Lightroom.
I enjoy many instructors on KelbyOne and I have to say Karen Hutton and Rick Sammon are my favorites for subject matter and style.
Favorite KelbyOne Class
I have to thank Scott and Matt Kloskowski for teaching me software techniques, it has really changed my ability to produce a proper image, and I always try to catch Scott if he is in the NYC area. I also enjoyed Karen Hutton’s class on “Finding Your Artistic Voice”.
