My family and I traveled to Phoenix, Arizona to visit some family and hang out. While I was there, I shot some images that I have added to my stock portfolio on iStockPhoto.com.
I wanted to feature one of the shots that I took. It is of 4 Palm trees framing a image of a vibrant blue sky.
The incredible blue sky was achieved by shooting late in the afternoon when the light was warmer – and using a polarizing filter. I purposely placed the four palm trees towards the bottom right hand corner to provide a designer with plenty of room to add copy and deliver their message in the sky portion of the photograph.
I also shot stock images of the Phoenix skyline that I discussed in another blog post.
The trip was incredible. I can see why people decide to live in Phoenix during the winter. I am sitting with 10″ of snow in my front yard.
Going to Arizona and wearing shorts in the winter (it was 70 degrees – perfect golfing weather) was a relaxing way to spend our vacation.
