What a crazy place this is - I got to explore with my bro-inlaw while in Colorado.
Over the years I've been requested to photograph cool products and recently I was asked to capture handcrafted knives by a local knife maker. The goal was to capture the knives to be entered into a knife magazine. The maker is incrediblly skilled and each blade hand shaped. I am not guru when it comes to this topic, but when you are shaping light on a product you often spot the blemishes in objects such as this. These things were positively stunning.
Here's a picture of my little setup:
I'm a native Texan, proudly now living in Alaska. Occasionally my wife and I take the kids back to our birth state to visit with family and my last trip I was able to talk my father into a road trip to the Big Bend NP. It was a fantastic trip and I was able to come away with some treasured images. It's interesting how red & white rock can be so attractive!
