Wading Through the Photos

I’m finally getting out from under a huge pile of photo processing from the last trip to Washington. Most people don’t realize the work that goes on after the capture. I never shoot in multi-frame mode on my camera and still come back from a photoshoot with hundreds, if not thousands, of images to wade through. Finding the gems in that heap is the challenge but it’s what professional photographers have to be able to recognize in order to be successfull.

I shot this selfie just after a self taught fly fishing lesson on Bacon Creek in the North Cascade National Park. It was a sunny day so the challenge was to find an area, not in direct sunlight, and pose for the camera. Photogs make horrible models!

I haven’t caught a fish yet but I’ll have another chance when I go to Pagosa Springs, CO next week to photograph an Elk hunt. Because of an early flight, we will have some time before the hunting season starts to get some fishing in.
